The Green Dragon dates from the 15th century. It was originally premises for a wheelwright and a coffin maker, then became a beer house some 200 years ago. Set in a delightful rural setting, the pub overlooks a stream which is spanned by a humped-backed bridge. During the summer months ponies and donkeys can be seen shading on the forecourt of the Inn. The Pub displays a number of 'bends' of leather, which bear imprints of hot iron brands. These brands represent owners of animals who have commoners rights to allow their livestock to graze on New Forest Land. To the rear of the pub is a small patio area that leads to our garden, which is a wonderful place to sit and relax in the summer. Why not come in and enjoy a pint of one of our four cask ales? These ales change all the time so keep an eye out for your favourites. We are a dog friendly pub although we do ask that you keep them on leads at all times. We do not allow dogs in the restaurant, this keeps one part of the pub a dog free area.

Fabulous ploughmans.

I love coming to this pub at any time since the food is consistently good, but in the summer I come for the ploughman's. With three types of cheese, an apple, fabulous home made chutney, and glorious home made bread, I still think its excellent, even though they no longer give you a piece of pork... read more

We have enjoyed two weekday lunches at the Green Dragon over the past month. The staff were cheerful, friendly, helpful and courteous and the food was excellent on both occasions. The sunny weather enabled us to eat in the tranquil garden where the food was served promptly and efficiently. If you want a relaxed, enjoyable lunch in the New Forest... More

The pub has really upped the standard of food, we had a great meal, as a fish lover the menu had lots of choice. As an added attraction they had Morris dancing in front of the pub. Great evening!

I was very disappointed as we were having a family lunch and hoped it would be nice. There were no menus on table, service was poor and had to find someone for drink and bill . I had tempura fish which was oblong-shaped in true catering style with typical awful chips at Gastropub price. Very disappointing and we wouldn't t... More

I've eaten here a couple of times before, and always liked the atmosphere and setting (in the New Forest). On this occasion it was very busy (a coach party had arrived before me), but the very friendly and helpful young barman showed me some free tables and I had a very pleasant home-made steak and kidney pie with a couple...

I met my friend and her baby at the Green Dragon for lunch yesterday. We enjoyed a peaceful lunch and enjoyed sitting in the garden in the sunshine. The staff were very friendly and one of them noticed that my friend needed help with cleaning her baby spoons and bib and he came straight over and offered to wash up... More

A lovely pub, but don't they know it! The food was generally good, but our first choice had sold out, despite still being on the chalkboard. I found the bar staff's attitude condescending. It felt as if this was a New Forest pub that doesn't have to try too hard to get plenty of business and lots of profit. I... More
