We popped in here on an afternoon for a drink with a view of looking at the menu to potential eat there later that evening whilst stopping at Cedar House. When ordering at the bar I asked what local ale's they had and was informed they had Tetleys on draught and a number of locally bottled ales. So far so... More

not a lot to say but we have eaten here a few times in the past but our meal was terrible and the staff who i think was the owner seemed very uninterested.

We had been here several times before but it has gone downhill. The "diningroom" is now a lean-to at the back of the bar rather than the characterful room with the inglenook fireplace which appears to have been purloined for overnight guests. When we went on the 13th August we were told that there was "no ice left" to go... More

We pulled over here on the way to Butlins as our son who is 8 today needed to go to toilet. The signs say its open to non residents. My husband asked politely to use the toilet for our son, a man closed the toilet door and said no! You state you provide good customer service as a national judge... More

We were recommended to try this restuarant, but found it very disappointing. The food was expensive and not good. We would not go again unless we heard they had made changes.

We stayed at the hotel recently for a birthday week away and had a great time in wisteria cottage (well recommended) and decided to try some other local pubs for food rather than eat in, if nothing else than for a change of scenery. How wrong could we be. So many of the pubs nearby just didn't cut it when... More

Had to book table early as resto only takes orders til 2030hrs.The food was well presented and there was sufficient choice for most palates. One dish slightly overcooked but still very tasty. Meal complimented with good house wine - inexpensive! As the area tends to cater for the less adventurous, this is a great find

Never any complaints with the Dragon House Hotel food, they source from local suppliers and have an interesting menu with lots of variety. Cooked breakfasts are really worth staying the night for

Had a wonderful meal and received excellent service. We didn't book a table and none were available when we arrived. We ordered some drinks and were led into a very comfortable lounge. An extra chair was brought over to us and we ( family of 4 ) were able to sit in comfort around the fireplace while we waited for... More
