I visited The Dragonfly with the family for our last family meal out before my son heads off to uni. We hadn’t booked a table but the lovely Connie squeezed us in, we had amazing service, we all went for the carvery which was lovely...and hot and top marks for the cauliflower cheese! A great, family friendly pub/ restaurant with wonderful staff Will definitely be back!More

I've been a regular here since it opened. I typically bring my two girls here on a Sunday for lunch and get the Carvery as it's quick and easy, good value for money and reasonably healthy. Being a single dad these are key factors when...deciding where to eat, plus getting the kids to eat veg is much better than other convenience options available. The waitress Nikki has served us a few times lately and is the friendliest, warmest waitress ever, is really welcoming, nothing is too much effort and will go the extra mile. Give her a raise :-) In the words of Arnie, "I'll be back"More

Thanks for your one sided review, at no point on our menu does it state what meats we have on the Carvery deck as our guests ask the carver and the server which meats there are. It’s also on display so you personally can make...More

Hi Polly, Yes they are allowed in the back beer garden (unfortunately we do not allow them in the children's play area). We do request that they remain on the lead throughout their visit. Many Thanks, The Dragonfly Team
