Description: As an old coach house that dates back to 1758, The Green Dragon became a pub several years later, steeped in history, with original features including the low beams and the fire place in the bar area. Julie has been the owner of The Green Dragon for 10 years and counting.We serve traditional home-cooked food, lunchtimes everyday, as well as evening food from Tuesday through until Saturday, and take pride in every meal thats sent out of our kitchen.We also host live music throughout the year with some fantastic bands, solo acts and acoustic live mic sets hitting the pub.A warm welcome is always received upon arrival and we hope to see you soon whether it be for food, drinks or a little bit of live music.

“Birthday Celebration”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

We recently celebrated a special family birthday. We had a wonderful welcome with friendly staff and a fabulous meal. It was a large family gathering with all ages attending and we sampled most of the menu. All the food was delicious, beautifully prepared, served and cooked. We thoroughly recommend a visit. Thank you for a memorable day.

“Steak Night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

We visited The Green Dragon for thier special steak night. What a surprise - excellent, succulent steaks with all the trimmings and a glass of wine all for the price of just £20 per couple. A lovely pub with superb staff. We have eaten there may times and have always been totally satisfied.

Certainly worth a visit.

“Excellent food, excellent service, excellent pub!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Me and my girlfriend eat at the green dragon every Sunday without fail and at least 2 times a week on weekdays for lunch. We haven't got a bad word to say about the food or service. We know all the bar staff and waitresses now and they are all very nice and helpful. The Sunday roast served here is by far the best we have ever tried, and we have tried a lot. They are very accommodating if you wish to change things with your meal. I highly recommend their food to every1 I know.

“The Green Dragon London Colney.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Having visited and eaten at this pub for many years, I was disappointed at some of the comments made in the previous review. I have never experienced a poor or unsatisfactory meal at this beautiful and historic pub. The food there is both imaginative and diverse, prepared to a very high and consistent standard. The portions are generous and very reasonably priced. These qualities, coupled with the friendly, helpful staff, led by an enthusiastic and incredibly hardworking Landlady, make it a very worthwhile place to visit either for a meal or a nice pint in great surroundings.
The Sunday roast is superb!
Overall, Highly recommended.
