We've visited the Dragon several times recently whilst we have been staying locally, whether we have been at breakfast, lunch or supper the food is consistently good. The staff are consistently helpful and a good feeling in this pub!

Traditional pub near marina and The Cottage B&B. Fantastic food sampled at lunch and breakfast. Great selection of ales including locally brewed options. Not cheap but well priced for the quality of food presented. Do not miss it if in the area.

Stayed at The Cottage B&B next door which is part of the Dragon; Dinner and Breakfast were delicious, well worth a visit.

Came in for lunch for two of us. The fish was huge and absolutely divine. Really fresh with a lovely light batter. Drinks a good price. Sat in the garden which was spacious and well maintained. All the staff were very pleasant helpful and genuine.
