Lovely setting in a converted church, slightly noisy but lovely surroundings. Tables not packed together so you are not on top of other people. Modest range of courses but the sunday Beef/Pork was excellent. Nice range of roast potatoes and greens to go with it. Wonderful gravy with the beef. The beef was really tasty with good depth of flavour.... More

Everyone complimented the excellent food and service, and in my personal opinion, food was of an excellent quality and the sentiment was shared with everyone in the party group. Brilliant party that was only made better by the amazing food served. 10/10 would eat again.

I'm a real fan of restaurants that do all the little things well. To start off, the building is fantastic, with a wonderful high ceiling. The partition of the room works well,

We live locally and love going here for date nights. It's a beautiful venue, with great food and drink. All our guests loved the food we served (pork belly) and we've always really enjoyed our meals there. Most of all, the staff are always really kind and lovely. I was a bit surprised to read some of the reviews on... More

Lovely setting, very prompt and courteous staff. The lunch menu was a bit lacklustre, lack of choice until we left and found that what was advertised on the board outside was not the same as that shown on the table menu. Crab salad underwhelming and the minute steak served on a bit of wood expected better.

The Bel & Dragon has a beautiful interior- gorgeous high beamed ceilings & stained glass windows, it definitely has a special occasion feel to it. We visited for dinner on a Saturday night, excited by a few cocktails & girly catch up over a nice meal. The service was slow to start - we had to ask to order drinks... More

Visited when we had family over from abroad for dinner on a Friday night. Food was good, tasty decent portion size no complaints from any of the party. Service was very slow granted they were busy but perhaps more staff would have helped and a service charge for normal size parties in this day age please.

After getting bored of the slow services elsewhere that offer a mediocre option for breakfast locally, my husband and I tried Bel and Dragon. The selection of food is clearly high quality as well as being affordable. We will be back!
