Popped in here on the way home because we needed the toliet lol. Stayed for food and had an excellent experiance. I had the fish and my girlfriend had the chicken. both where superb and I hate to say it but the fish was better than mine. batter was dark and crisp and cooked right through. Chips hot and fresh and Vals chicken was crisp and tasty. Only small point but with fish as good as that make your own tartare sauce as it is just as cheap and takes 5 mins. You can always taste jar sauce. Did not have time for pud but maybe next time. Price was reasonable too.

We ate here on 2 consecutive nights and had excellent vegetarian meals on both occasions. Particular recommendations are the butternut squash soup, the leek and laverbread burger and the superb Penang curry. The Dragon bread and butter pudding was also tasty. The staff were friendly and efficient even though the restaurant was very busy on the second night.

Spent a lovely weekend camping in the field next to the pub. Toilets and shower spotless. Good food before 9pm. Ideal location for walking straight into the hills.

We stayed at the Dragon Inn for 2 nights as a family of 4 (2 kids under 10) and ate both nights in the restaurant. It was simply great. The room was good with a great view/access to the beer garden and castle. The food was excellent - great range of options and all of it tasted great. The Welsh breakfast was also really good. We were all full! The staff were really friendly and helpful, one suggested we do the Table Mountain walk, which we did and really enjoyed.
The only down side was the room was quite hot and the car park is a tight to get in to!
A lovely weekend break - highly recommend.

Ate here with family and two friends. Looks nice from the outside but the food was the worst I’ve had for a very long time. It’s a pub but you adjust your expectations. Limp soggy fish( 3 people left it ) they ran out of ingredients so all dishes didn’t come as described, a chilli con carne which came as a child’s portion, salads with yellow salad leaves as they were past their sell by date. You have to pay before hand which is never a good sign. Best avoid. A near by pub called the bear is much better
