We stopped over at the Green Dragon Inn on our way to a family celebration. The Inn is well signposted and the directions on the website were helpful and accurate. There is a large pub car park across the single track road, but guests staying in the accommodation can park in a courtyard behind the pub.
The pub itself is fantastic - full of charm and bedecked by huge flower baskets outside, with a lovely seating area with picnic benches.
The welcome we received was warm and efficient and after taking our overnight bags round to the separate accommodation block at the rear of the pub we were soon back in the Lower Bar enjoying the Real Ales on offer.
We had a delicious two course meal which was not only delicious but we felt great value for money too. The wine list too had a good selection at reasonable prices. Both bars are charming and full of character - and the Robert Thompson carved mice everywhere you look - even on the bar stools - are a delight
The rooms as stated previously are in a separate block and all named after racehorses - our room, Best Mate, was on the small side but perfectly adequate for an overnight stay. It was modern, nicely decorated with a great shower, incredibly comfy bed and pillows and was so peaceful - the perfect recipe for a good nights sleep. There were tea and coffee making facilities provided also.
After a great relaxing night we went back to the lower bar for breakfast. Service was great, choices were ample and nothing was too much trouble.
All in all highly recommended and a great base for exploring the Cotswolds.
