We visited for lunch with open minds after reading the mixed reviews on here. Unfortunately we have to agree with the negative reviews - we really did not like it. There were lots of negatives and only two positives during our visit. Firstly a positive then - it's a beautiful pub. Looks pretty from the outside and hinted that the... More

We were staying nearby and wandered down for a drink a few times during our one week visit to the New Forest area. We would have been there every night, however; family obligations meant we had to explore other places as well. We only went for drinks but were welcomed every visit by the locals and included in their conversations.... More

Had Sunday lunch on what was a lovely sunny day.The inside of the pub was packed and a large number of people were in the garden too mostly having food.The choice for main course and dessert was large and the latter were all homemade.Portion size for my shoulder of lamb was generous,and the roast potatoes were particularly nice being crisp...

We, two Scots, arrived here on Father's Day, looking for lunch. Scots don't make quite such a thing of it so we didn't realise that things would be busy. Unsurprisingly they were extremely busy but found us a table anyway. We were so grateful - the food and service were great. They also seemed to be coping with a guest's... More

A party of four of us, hungry campers all, ate here on saturday evening (05.07.14). The food was really good, well cooked, tasty, lovely sauces and well presented side dishes. Couldnt eat it all because we all ate too much for our starter course. We were made to feel really welcome. I had beef stroganoff (lovely), husband had lamb curry... More

Second time I've visited in a week after years of driving by and now wondering why. Have had two excellent meals this week. Steak and kidney pie and roast lamb. Home made. Fresh veg - cooked correctly and not dripping in butter to give it flavour. Hot food. Timely service. Very pleasant landlady, Mandy, and delightful friendly knowledgable young staff.... More

It's not often that I will award five stars for excellence but, on this occasion, I am happy so to do. We visited The Green Dragon for Sunday lunch. It's just the sort of place that you would like to find in the New Forest; a traditional country pub with a lovely garden, hanging baskets, keg ales, a lovely garden... More

Driving through the New Forest on Sunday afternoon very very hungry and very pleased to find somewhere still serving lunch at 4pm. We sat in the garden out the back which was very pleasant. I had a mushroom pie which was quite nice and very generous in size but swamped in an unnecessary cream sauce. My other half had roast... More

I am utterly confused by reports here of 'great food'. I'm not a food snob - just a regular bloke who doesn't complain much about anything - but I feel I have to report my experiences at the Green Dragon are totally at odds with those of others writing here. I've eaten here twice - once five years ago, when... More

This pub has become our local. Not just for the beautiful location in the New Forest and great atmosphere but for the high quality food - especially the home made steak and kidney pie. We take all our visitors there and none have been disappointed.
