“Lovely Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

This is a very nice spot to go for a pleasant relaxing meal in the friendly convivial company of the staff and management. The standard of the food is excellent and I would think in due course the place will be enjoying the Michelin standard in some form. It is ideal for a meal and also a drink for which we have been several times in the last couple of months and hopefully we will be there again soon. It is a lovely country pub with a country atmosphere.

“Generally very nice, not sure about the desserts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

We both had steak and chips which were cooked well though the chips were more obese then chunky! This did make you feel like you were having less chips then you actually were.

We had trifle for dessert which seemed a rather bizarre concoction of ice cream, panna cotta, coulis and cream. Pleasant but very rich.

We were sat in the extension bit which was painted a vile vibrant green with at least 3 plants per windowsill (there were about 3 windows) so felt like were we in a greenhouse.

Lovely staff, good food, nice ale. We will go back there!

“don't miss it, go now while you can get in.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

So pleased the light dragoon is back on the map. Great village pub which has been smartened up considerably in the short time Gary, mine host has been there. Food is brilliant, the steak pie looks like an individual beef wellington, my guest said it was the best he'd had anywhere, not the usual meat in gravy with a top thrown on !!! . Upmarket grub this !!! my sea bass was perfect with bottle green samphire and white wine sauce. They have a proper chef here don't miss it.

“Very friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

The barman was really friendly and helpful and the chef very smiley which was nice. The meat in the steak pie was amazing, very tasty and very very tender. The brownie was gorgeous too. We had a toddler with us and the oudoor area is not geared towards little children with the slide being very high and the swings not having a 'baby seat' on which is a shame as that would put us off going again.

“Recommended and it was goooood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

A very warm welcome.We selected one special from the chalk board - chicken and leak pie under a herby crust pastry, chunky home made chips and mushy peas. Steak and ale pie with ditto from the standard menu. Both meals were feshly made, piping hot and oh so tasty. The service and presentation delighted us. Summing up -The Light Dragoon is one of those places you cannt wait to go back too. Another great find in this area if you dont want to pay the prices of the Pipe and Glass.
