Our second visit to the Green Dragon and it didn't disappoint!! The food is amazing!! We had Devon Duck Pie and our friend had the Roast beef and fresh vegetables. We were drooling!! The most wonderful surprise came in a group of Morris Dancers who performed for us. Highly recommended. Wish we had a pub like this in Brisbane.

Nice clean room with tea/coffee maker and a fantastic shower. Great for hikers. There is a little fridge in each of the buidings containing milk, but it's big enough for guest to chill doen there on things. It's located in the countryside, so the only noise you'll hear is birds. Our SatNav had trouble finding Cockleford, so maybe entering Cowley... More

Staying near Cheltenham , we found previous reviews for this country pub, and decided to give it a go. So glad we did! Delicious food , some quite unusual like my Tuscan vegetable pie(really yummy) . Very generous portions, and pleasant service. The pub is obviously popular, and was pretty full on a Thursday evening. Very old characterful place -... More

just spent a very relaxing overnight at the Green Draggon, Cockleford. This old Coaching Inn is a prime example of quentessential England and is very popular with locals and tourists. It is also dog friendly. Needless to say, the food was excellent and the service second to none. The rooms extremely clean and comfortable. Nicki and Simon made us feel... More

On the outskirts of Cheltenham, the green dragon is the stereotypical country inn. The pub is secluded in the trees which gives it a lovely rural atmosphere. I attended for a wedding evening, which occurred in a separate function area away from the main pub. I would highly recommend this for a wedding reception/evening as it is a great size... More

Some of the worst food and service i have ever had!! The meet and greet was good and i can not fault that. I really think there is a real lack of staff structure and no personality to go with it. Maybe I went on the wrong day. Everything that was said sounded like it had been repeated time after... More

We visited here for a quick lunch and had the best fishfinger sandwich you could want! Sorry, I forgot to take a photo first! Meals and snacks were reasonably priced for the good quality and the atmosphere is relaxed and almost a step back in time.

I've visited here half a dozen times in the last 6 weeks as we're about to move into the area. I've had dinner with my grown up children and drinks with my fiance and on my own on several occasions. It's a winning formula: pretty pub, lovely setting, easy to park and the most powerful wifi i've ever come across!.... More

We stayed at The Green Dragon on the first evening of this year's walking tour on The Cotswold Way. Everything was to our taste. The food was great (check-out the wooden mice in The Mouse Bar whilst you eat), the beers were interesting and the rooms were comfortable and dog-friendly. Oh, and the people there are friendly and helpful. Strong... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
