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.

We met up with some friends for a midweek lunch recently, and had a lovely time. For midweek in March, the pub was very busy, with a great atmosphere. The food was delicious, from a generally pub food menu, and the service was friendly and efficient. Be warned though, and this is neither complaint nor criticism, the Green Dragon operates... More

Mother's Day treat. Service was very quick and friendly. Food was hot and substantial. Alternative to the menu was not a problem. It was our first visit and am sure we will be returning again.

But apparently not, because we turned up at 1045am for morning coffee and although light was on the doors were bolted. Why say you do but not on a Sunday? We went over the road to the Bell (which was excellent)

Miserable day so popped in to get away from weather and very pleasantly surprised. Staff very friendly (despite being very busy) ordered food and after a short wait duly delivered. The quality was very good and the portions very generous - what more do you want????

First time visiting this pub as part of a big group celebrating a birthday. It was very busy so I would recommend booking (Sunday lunch). Although there is a well laid our car park it was full when we arrived at 1pm. Dogs are welcome. We were a party of about 20 and were accommodated in an area of the... More

Visited recently - very disappointed. It's another of these highly priced food pubs which thinks it's a restaurant but is incapable of acting like one. Frozen chips, order at the bar, unable to provide egg and chips for a vegetarian who couldn't eat the veggie options. Used to go often but feel its success with the Sunday lunch brigade has... More
