So glad this has closed from the owners. It was being run into the ground and a pub with such potential was being ruined. Fingers crossed it gets turned into a nice gastro pub as it does have amazing potential

This pub is now closed, and even still I am shocked with the amount of false reviews towards it! There was no limit to the car park, you could even leave it over night as long as you registered at the bar. To register at...More

I have been visiting this pub for 30 years and was absolutely gobsmacked to receive a parking charge for having spent an extra 5 min over a 2 hour allowed parking period. I went for a festive drink with a friend just before Christmas and...More

Beware, these clowns have set up a CCTV system in their carpark and send you parking tickets 3 weeks after you have been in. Me and my friend just got the same letter. The bar staff aren't interested in telling you about it when you...More

Have been using this pub to meet business colleagues in evening after charity board meetings for a couple of years. Suddenly they changed their parking policy and have now started fining clients for using their car park. Their response is that there are signs in...More

The King & Dragon is an English pub and authentic Thai restaurant, though the bar area boasts all the hallmarks of a local pub - comfy seating, rustic wooden floors and a well-stocked bar - head through to the restaurant and it's a totally different story. The decor is contemporary with Eastern influences, making for a stylish venue for everything from a casual midweek meal to a birthday celebration
