The log fire welcomed us to the cozy mouse bar. The atmosphere was great, with regulars at the bar and many of the tables full, even on a Sunday evening. The food was superb, we had vegetable soup and avocado and prawn salad to start...More

Managed to book a table for Sunday roast at 13.45 today which was very lucky as usually they’d be fully booked in advance. Love the setting of this country pub, plenty of parking and places to sit outside, weather permitting. The main bar on the...More

Went here for lunch. We've been before and had better meals than this. We were served by a young lad who was clearly a rookie but staff have to start somewhere I guess. The inside is very traditional and there is a lovely open fire...More

It has an amazing view, surrounded by stunning landscape and walks....but the patterned carpet and pine tables should have prepared us for the oh-so-below-standard food and service. Somehow, the menu should have screamed "leave now!" But alas, we didn't. Barking dogs, sticky bar and salad...More

Great pub food, generous portions with a varied menu, all reasonably priced. Good atmosphere and excellent service. We ate at lunchtime so unable to comment on evening meals.

Lovely place in the Cotswolds. Child friendly (but good to know - dog friendly too). We were automatically booked a dinner table every night as it's a bit further out and had really wonderful food. Good starting point for exploring the Cotswolds. Only little downside-...More

A traditional country 17th Century inn situated in the Cotswolds only 15 minutes drive from Cheltenham, Gloucester and Cirencester. The Green Dragon Inn continually proves to be a popular retreat for those appreciating good food, fine wines and real ales. Set in the countryside for a relaxing experience and great walks from the door.On a fine day, sit outside amongst the honeysuckle and hanging baskets or on colder days relax by the log fires in our Oak beamed bars. Browse over our extensive menu and daily changing specials board, where our chef uses his creativity in producing “pub food with a difference"One of our special features of the pub is the ‘Mouse Bar’. The furniture and the bars themselves have been made by Robert Thompson, the famous ‘Mouse Man of Kilburn’ with small mice running all over the hand carved chairs, tables and mantelpiece! To complement the food there is a wine list notable for its range and value. We also have a good selection of fine ales; Hook Norton, Otter, Doom Bar and GL Cider. Nine comfortable bedrooms are individually furnished to a high standard, all with their own en-suite bathroom. The rooms are all doubles and twins, and extra beds for children can be provided if needed. In addition we have the St. George’s Suite and has its own sitting room. Also an ideal venue for weddings.
