Went for a birthday celebration. Have dined at Bel & Dragon before, but yesterday's meal was the best ever. We had the salt baked saddle of lamb. There was too much meat but the waiter gladly packaged the leftovers and we enjoyed it cold at home tonight. Chicken, suckling pig and beef equally enjoyed. The lemon tart for dessert was... More

Had booked an early table after a visit to the amazing sculpture park directly opposite, just as well this place gets VERY busy indeed. Very fresh seasonal menu, beautifully cooked and great service. Excellent all around, it's not cheap but value for the money.

Visited with my two small children and we all had a lovely lunch. Superb rib of beef and moist succulent chicken for the children and lots fresh veg. Nothing was too much trouble and even a query with the bill was sorted out quickly by the manager. Will certainly visit again.

We'd been meaning to go to Bel & The Dragon since moving to Godalming and went with friends to celebrate my wife's birthday. When we actually received our starters (after about 75 minutes), they tasted great and there was no problem there at all, this was not carried through with the main course. We had incorrect items brought to the... More

Amazing food and stunning venue. Really pricey but it is very classy and the sort of clientele that will pay the prices. Enjoyable

We used to visit the Bel and dragon a few times a year before we had children 12 years ago. After they were born we only went a couple of times and then it was refurbished and we have not been for years due to the menu not really suiting our taste and it being quite pricey. However, we recently... More

We had a pleasant afternoon with friends and our couple of kids. The food was good - it was a Sunday and the roasts were decent. But for a Sunday it was quite quiet, and as it's a big roomy place (the building is stunning) the atmosphere was a little lacking.

It's been several years since I visited this restaurant but I had heard changes had been made. On arrival we could see that this was true with the decor and we were shown to a table to wait for the rest of our party. No-one thought to take our coats or offer a drink which we thought was a little... More
