This is our first visit to this pub after a recommendation from friends. Totally surprised and impressed for a public house in the country, we eat inside for lunch although a lovely garden outside to sit in the sun if wanted. Good service and meal we all had something different, and a good selection and choice for all, specialty burgers... More

Glass of prosecco,then Mediterranean platter to start on a sharing board which included cold meats, feta cheese and houmous. All very tasty with homemade bread. Followed by half a lobster... More

Been there with colleagues for a team dinner. Food was certainly fresh, including home made beef burgers. The menu is not a typical pub menu but leans more towards a steak house type of menu. Service was ok. Nice garden at the back of the building.

My partner and I came here for dinner on the 16th May to celebrate our one year anniversary. We had booked and arrived early, so enjoyed a drink in the garden area, which was beautifully decorated with fairy lights and nice looking furniture. The garden area had a huge area of grass which would be great for big families with... More

We went for the first time and were very impressed. It's very nicely laid out with plenty of room between the tables. A very nice menu and the food was also very well cooked and presented. Friendly, efficient staff. Would definitely recommend.

If you love meat you'll love this place but they do fish too - sadly for me they don't serve it filleted but the choice is still there. Stopped by for an impromptu lunch on a very busy Saturday but the friendly staff still found us a table and we were served quickly. The owner is still very hands on... More

Went for lunch with family, four adults and two toddlers. Adults shared a deli board starter, supermarket looking salami, chorizo etc including a very basic pate and not enough bread! Various mains followed, I had the Argentinian sirloin (medium) which reminded me when cutting it that I needed to re-sole my shoes!! The bar scene in Laurel and Hardy's film... More

From gorgeous decor to a fab menu, friendly staff to the most delicate rose wine and incredible food. We were blown away. We've booked our birthday dinner there next Month. The steak was stunning,...

We were in the area and asked for a recommendation and The Dragon was that recommendation, we were not disappointed. Unusually for me I went for the Salmon Caesar salad, I would agreed when served it did look on the small side, but actually was plenty. My other half had the Dragon Burger and was very impressed. Very good fries.... More
