After a day on the local canal we visited The Dragon as it’s was recommended by an employee at the marina.
We had booked elsewhere in Crickhowell but he convinced us that that we would be better served by taking his advice.
So we changed our booking and we have to say we were all delighted with the setting, service and quality of the food we had.
Downside was quite a wait for the food orders to arrive, although we had been informed there might be a slight delay but when you’ve children with you they can get difficult.
However all in all we were all pleased with what we received and 4 adults, 1 child and 1 Baby we’re fed and watered for £80 approx by very friendly helpful staff.
Well done The Dragon, we’ll be back on our next visit to the area.

Thank Helen K

Ok here goes, on appearance it’s lovely but we were sat by a busy door that slammed every time some one went to the toilets! Why not put some foam around the door?
We then waited 20 minutes for a drink and had to call the waitress over who was surprised we had not been served? Food was sent back as my gammon was undercooked skin was watery and white! Steaks were tough! And we were charged for the pepper corn sauce which should be included? Bread and butter pud was microwaved so hard it was like toast and concrete. If you want a decent meal suggest the bear not here!

I think that this used to be a pub which now thinks it is a restaurant....It has the feel of neither. Food extremely disappointing but the waiting staff was excellent

We had a wonderful meal in this gorgeous restaurant it looked so pretty from the outside and was warm and welcoming. They let us take our dog in who is very well behaved and the staff could not have been kinder to us, the girls were so friendly and the barman from the outset. Food was scrumptious would highly recommend. Thank you too to lovely George one of the waitresses for her cheerful demeanour

I hate giving harsh reviews but I hope this is taken as constructive and not negative.

Again, in fairness this is an afternoon tea last year in the summer and as such can be viewed as out of date.

The actual Dragon Inn is lovely and the service was very good.

I think the four of us had very high hopes of the afternoon tea but it was just ok.

We enjoy afternoon tea and always try it when we find a nice place. This fits that bill.

However, the sandwiches were hard and not fresh and thats a big part of afternoon tea.

It still gets three stars because everything else was so good but overall it has to be marked as average.

Im happy to go back again for lunch or dinner because everything else was so good and that could have just been an off day.
