We visited here as a party of 6 on a Saturday lunchtime. Glad we chose midday (and booked) as by 1pm it was getting very full. Good selection of 4 real ales. The food was excellent with a lunchtime menu around the £8-£11 range. I had local faggots with mash and this was very good. Others on my table had... More

As we were celebrating a rather special wedding anniversary and not wanting to travel too far at this time of year we choose this inn. On arrival we received a rather lukewarm warm welcome, having pre booked for dinner on our two night stay we were surprised to be booked in the bar rather than restaurant. The St George's Suite...

I stayed here overnight before a days shooting near Cheltenham. A warm welcome was received and my room whilst small was more than comfortable enough. The really good bit is the food - it's excellent. My smoked haddock vol au vent starter, steak and kidney pudding main and ginger sponge pudding were faultless. Very tasty indeed if not a bit...

We have been staying at the Green Dragon for quite a few years usually when visiting Cheltenham Races. The rooms are clean and very comfortable and we always enjoy a good nights sleep. The pub itself is delightful. Food always excellent and the staff extremely pleasant and helpful. I would recommend the Green Dragon for an overnight stay or just... More

Had soup of the day, 2 mozzarella and tomato salads, chicken breast and 2 gammon steaks. Gammon was on the tough side, Salads and soup were delicious. Service was somewhat inattentive. Had long waits between courses and had to seek out server. Should be better. Food on the pricey side. Can get busy. Try to get seated up front -... More

I visited the Green Dragon earlier in the year and was not overly impressed - today however I was very impressed. Firstly a lovely warm welcome from the gentleman who is probably mine host and secondly, lovely service from the waitress who has a Cocker a Spaniel dog. The food was delicious and the place spotless. Can't ask for much... More

Attended the Green Dragon for a two day meeting with lunches and a dinner. Wanted to leave a more positive review than the last one. Firstly, the food was great. A simple sandwich lunch but very tasty as the bread was superbly fresh and the salad and chips tasty. My dinner delivered with all the courses, bread & olives, chorizo... More

We chose the Green Dragon for it's location in the middle of nowhere and it's quintessential countryside look, and it was perfect! We arrived early before the rooms were ready and they made sure our room was cleaned first, which was great service. It was a good base for going walking, and the owners were very helpful on advising us... More
