Lovely little country pub in a pretty village. The food is quite good, but unfortunately the Thai food is no longer available here, which was very good. The food served now is mostly traditional English food. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. A nice place to...More

Now serving standard "pub grub" which seems popular. We went expecting to enjoy a Thai meal so disappointed. Food ok but service rather slow. Still a lovely old pub with a splendid garden.

The Green Dragon is a traditional 17th-Century English village pub in Flaunden on the outskirts of Hemel Hempstead. Serving real ales and home cooked food in the oak beamed restaurant which seats 20 or less formally in the bar areas. Alongside the traditional 'pub grub' a selection of made to order sandwiches, cakes, teas and coffees are available. The Green Dragon - a freehouse often described by surprised delighted visitors as 'a proper local'. Certainly the relaxed ambience created by the beautiful, sympathetically-extended building is arguably enticing! The Dragon's spacious yet secluded country garden - a magnet for summer visitors - seats up to 100 visitors, who can enjoy the abaundance of birds and other wildlife, as well as a varied collection of fuchsias and even a walnut tree. Consistent with its rural heritage, dogs are always welcome at The Dragon - provided, of course, that they are well trained and behaved. Horses are also welcome, not in the bar though ;0)
