If you wish to be ignored by the waiting and bar staff this is the place to visit. The tables are too close together and should one become available the staff always say that that it has already been booked! Given that there was not a friendly greeting or a smile on arrival by anyone in the establishment we would have great difficulty in recommending that anyone visit this establishment, we certainly will not be going there again.

 

Very Nice

We had a lovely meal here tonight. Service was good & food really nice and well presented. Our two kids ate free when we ordered a main course each. Everyone was really happy & finished all their food (doesn't often happen!) Thank you, we will be back again.

 

Really good!

I came and visited the Green Dragon after it was refurbished and before it was cold, miserable and the food wasn't very good. But after the refurbishment, i have come back and it was really good! The Staff were very attentive and helpful, the food came quickly and it was very good! I will recommend this anybody, because the food was good, eventhough it was busy and
the staff still did a very good job. The only complaint that i have is with the manager. She was being awkward and she was a bit blunt but the rest of the staff were good, espcially the bar manager, he was very good and attentive to us and i have been back many times for a meal!

 

excellent value

It is what it is, a nice English pub, proper real ale and a friendly ambience, I couldnt fault the food and the staff went out of their way to seat us comfortably, always busy - so probably could do with more serving staff - but a great experience for me

 

MANAGEMENT NEED TO DO BETTER!!!!!!!

I have visited this resturant twice in the last month. The first time the food was lovely and all four of us really enjoyed it. However the service was terrible!!!
I decided to take my husband the second time. The service was once again terrible, and every table in the restuarant seemed to be having issues from missing starters to poor qualty food. There was only two waiters/waitress working while the manager seemed to stand around doing nothing. When he was approached by a complaining customer he didn't seem to really care or even have a sense of urgency to send over a member of staff to resolve the issue. If the management of this establishment are still here next year I will be very surprised. The food on this visit was no where near the standard of the first visi. The starter took 30 minutes to arrive, and the main arrived two minutes after we finished starter. It looked like it had been keeping warm under a lamp for a while. Not going to bother going back now.
