A very special place ....

We only popped in for a bday drink for my husbands birthday on a Monday early evening. 2 small kids in tow and before we knew it the kids were at the bar being entertained by the bar man and making fruit cocktails . He didn't have to but it made the kids evening and we had ten minutes to... read more

Great restaurant that we have visited on many occasions. Fantastic food, atmosphere and service. Cocktails are a must and the menu changes depending on season.

Wow, what a find!! We were strolling around town looking for lunch when we stumbled across Bel and The Dragon. The staff were friendly and very efficient. The selection on the menu was fantastic so we struggled to choose as both of us wanted most of the dishes. The wine was excellent quality and we were lucky to get a... More

Varied menu, spacious location (ex-church) and space outside when fine. Vegetarian/vegan option a bit disappointing. Attentive staff

Haven't been back since a couple of disappointing experiences 2 years ago but went for lunch to celebrate my daughters birthday and they were back on top of their game. Difficult to know for an early lunch what to drink or eat but there was a good selection of drinks and brunch, light or heavy meals. We started with cocktails... More

We regularly eat at the Bel and the Dragon and have always found the service to be great and the food delicious. We love coming in for coffee as well as for meals as we love the atmosphere and the general appearance of the Bel and the Dragon. We also had a birthday afternoon tea here in February with some...

We ate here with friends. When we turned up the waiter cracked a joke telling us our table was cancelled! (Strange thing to say). We were taken to a nice round table. The food was really nice but overpriced and the wine was ridiculously expensive. We are in a little town of Godalming, not London! Food is served on boards,... More

I love this restaurant as it has amazing space (it's located in an old church building) and the staff are always attentive and pleasant. The food is very tasty - worth a visit...

Eaten here several times (it's about a 40 minute drive for us) and we really like the place. Staff are welcoming, happy and knowledgeable. Great (changing) menu in a stunning converted church and excellent food. Wines are fabulous but try the "house". No, it's not cheap, but it is an "eating and drinking experience" and reasonable value. Great place for... More
