Sunday roasts, no matter what you order, come with a huge Yorkshire pudding and stuffing. This is no bad thing in my mind as the pudding was crispy and nice. The meat was on the medium side which I like, although it was a bit too pink for some tastes. It was good quality meat, gravy and veggies. The puddings... More

Great cosy atmosphere and food! A firm family favourite and a perfect spot for lunch or a drink after a long country walk

We had a really nice evening at The Green Dragon Inn, the staff were really welcoming, attentive and warm. Food was good and atmosphere in the pub was really nice, lots of things to look at and decorated for Christmas - beautiful setting and lovely warm welcome on a very cold night!

I've been to the Green Dragon on a number of occasions, mainly because we have friends that insist on going there. It really isn't anything special. The food is average, and nothing out of the ordinary and for all its pretensions it's just pub grub, certainly nothing to write home about, overpriced for what it is and no care taken... More

I've been here a couple of times in the last year with friends and I think it's a great little pub with excellent food. It's pretty busy in there, so it's not necessarily a quiet experience, but it's bustling, warm and friendly. Would definitely recommend for a delicious lunch in a pretty Cotswolds spot.

Having enjoyed this pub in the past the service we received today was appalling. Rude and unhelpful staff who gave the impression of not wanting anyone there yet did not match the desire to get rid of us with any semblance of speedy service. The food eventually arrived and was inedible. We had to send two burgers back and no... More

We recently met up with friends at the Green Dragon for Sunday lunch. The pub is tucked away in a country village but oozes Cotswold charm with great Christmas decorations and roaring log fires. We arrived late as we were held up by roadworks travelling back from Birmingham. The staff were very polite and allowed us to join our friends... More

We thought we would start our Christmas activities with an enjoyable turkey lunch. Turkey lunch we had , but enjoyment was not on the menu. Turkey was overcooked, roast potatoes were decidedly undercooked, Yorkshire puddings were as flat as pancakes and the ball of stuffing could have been fired from a musket. Let's try puddings, we thought. Surely nothing can... More

Description
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.
