Description: A traditional country 17th Century inn situated in the Cotswolds only 15 minutes drive from Cheltenham, Gloucester and Cirencester. The Green Dragon Inn continually proves to be a popular retreat for those appreciating good food, fine wines and real ales. Set in the countryside for a relaxing experience and great walks from the door.On a fine day, sit outside amongst the honeysuckle and hanging baskets or on colder days relax by the log fires in our Oak beamed bars. Browse over our extensive menu and daily changing specials board, where our chef uses his creativity in producing “pub food with a difference"One of our special features of the pub is the ‘Mouse Bar’. The furniture and the bars themselves have been made by Robert Thompson, the famous ‘Mouse Man of Kilburn’ with small mice running all over the hand carved chairs, tables and mantelpiece! To complement the food there is a wine list notable for its range and value. We also have a good selection of fine ales; Hook Norton, Otter, Doom Bar and GL Cider. Nine comfortable bedrooms are individually furnished to a high standard, all with their own en-suite bathroom. The rooms are all doubles and twins, and extra beds for children can be provided if needed. In addition we have the St. George’s Suite and has its own sitting room. Also an ideal venue for weddings.

“Great place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Recommended by a friend, the Green Dragon was all we expected it to be. The food, service and atmosphere were all great. We had Sunday lunch, which was a choice of traditional as well as more unusual offerings. We were made to feel very welcome and will be back again soon. Highly recommended.

“open fireplaces make a very welcoming atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Beautiful open fireplaces make this the perfect location on a cold winters night. Very friendly serving staff.
The butternut squash rissotto starter was a bit bland
The salmon main was cooked to perfection.
The bread and butter pudding was the best I had ever had!

“lovely grub, friendly staff, ideal pit stop at the end of a chilly walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Nick & I made the Green Dragon our target for the end of a short Cotswolds' walk of about two hours duration.

i was pleased to see the Pub as it was quite chilly on the hills, albeit a lovely sunny day for December

nothing tremendously outstanding about the Pub & restaurant - but nice to find log fires, good food and friendly staff.

I woukd go again if i was in teh rarea
