We had a lovely stay at the Dragons Back. The Landlord gave us a bigger room as they had a cancellation. Plenty of space in the bunkhouse with two showers and toilets plus access to kitchen facilities. Very clean and comfortable beds. We forgot our...tea, coffee and milk but the landlord provided some for us. Plenty of choice of evening meal. Very tasty and quick service. Overall a very friendly, clean, comfortable place to stay in the Black Mountains with walks from the doorstep.More

So pleased we found this place! Really good value for money. Welcoming owners, clean and comfortable room, good food, lovely views and surrounding countryside. We’d traveled to Wales for the annual Man vs Horse race, although we were still 45 minutes away, but it was...just the ticket. When we came back tired and depleted, there was a hot shower to be had, followed by beer and sizzling steaks (wine and a tasty veggie shepherds pie for our veggie team-mate) in front of the wood burning stove to build us back up. Lovely cooked breakfast too!More

We have just spent our annual rambling weekend here - a group of 25 women, some camping, some in the bunkhouse and some B&B. Great location (and easy to find), great food, great local beer, comfy beds, plenty of hot water and a cheery host...(who was very accommodating of all our dietary requests).More

Came here for dinner with my husband and was told straight away there was a little wait for food which was fine. I’d much rather know from the off! Had a drink while we waited. The menu is on single chalk boards above the bar...so if they run out of something, they remove that board... simples!! No false expectations. Food was great. Simple, filling and very generous portions. Hubby had Burger and Chips and I had Cottage Pie.... he got half of mine!!!! Will come back here if ever i’m back this way.More

Stopped at the pub to have some lunch on the way to our hotel. Friendly owner, good pub food and a warming fire! One thing to note is that they only open a couple of days a week - we were there in a Saturday!

Thank you for your nice comments, shame about the score. We are open Friday evenings and Saturday from 12.30, we state this on every page of our website, and on all our marketing material.
