17 over excited staff descended of the green dragon for a quick pre-ordered team xmas lunch. The team at the restaurant were happy for us to select from all three of their menus which catered for all tastes and budgets and we added more people right up to a couple of days before. With two gluten free and one vegetarian... More

Three course meal ordered. Staff are wonderful, cannot fault. Pate with toast: pate in pot with something on top, not sure if butter or other fat but rock hard and toast not toasted enough, too soft. Roast duck dinner: duck was tasteless, potatoes overdone, Brussels sprouts were the size of marbles (never seen them that small, ever) and there were... More

A lunchtime out called which means, in our minds, The Green Dragon. Great service from really friendly staff, good beers on offer and, the main reason, good food. Coming up to Christmas we were surprised how full the car park was but we found a table near the bar. Well worth a visit.

The waitress took our order for 4 rib-eye steaks, then returned to the table to say they only had 2 left, so we ordered 2 rump steaks instead and again the waitress returned to the table to say they only had 1 rump steak left. We decided to order the chicken duo, to be told they had no chicken. So... More

We came here for a friend's lunch, which offers standard pub grub but not at the cheapest prices. The pub itself is very nice with a beer garden that would look lovely in the summer. Despite the cost, the food was cooked well and everyone enjoyed their dinner and the service was seamless. We had a 2 year old who... More

Went with elderly father recently at lunch time. He likes value for money and we certainly got that with the Golden Oldies menu! 3 courses ( with choices) for well under £10! The food was served quickly and portions were good. We have also been in the evening and booking is advisable as it is a very busy place! Good... More
