Fabulous Monday evening at Bel & Dragon making cocktails. The masterclass was not only fun, but you got the added pleasure of tasting your creation! Special thanks for Rufus who patiently took five chatty women through the class whilst still smiling at the end. Also thanks for our very helpful waitress - nothing was too much trouble. My friends and... More

The staff were attentive throughout the meal, knowledgable and always on hand. However the food was average on the whole - some didn't even come with what had been described on the menu. Having said that the cod was good so who knows, perhaps you just gotta get lucky with your choice.

We stopped here for lunch on a day trip to visit Godalming. Due to it being a sunny and warm day, we sat ouside so didn't really have the opportunity to enjoy the lovely interior of the building. We both declared our salads and puddings delicious. I like the fact the ingredients are sourced locally and from artisan producers, it... More

Visited restaurant at 7pm Saturday evening and able to get a table for two without trouble. Ate upstairs in the gallery space..... Been here several times in past as quite like the atmosphere and its 'different' to conventional restaurant ambience. Staff are very pleasant and took some trouble to stabilise our table which was rocking on the wobbly floor boards.... More

I was in the area on Monday this week and have been to both the Cookham and Readng Bel and the Dragon and thought I'd nip in for a quick lunch. A few ladies and babies were sat in the area with buggies (good for families then I thought) After a short wait I was guided to a large comfortable... More

In a converted church the restaurant looks stunning. The food was good but for the prices charged would expect better (eg salmon should not be overcooked when you are paying £15+ for it before side orders) Staff were OK though twice we tried to order something to be told it was actually not available. Overall average

We have visited the Bel & The Dragon many times being Godalming residents and I'm sorry to say our recent visit is definitely going the be the last. The menu's too limited and boring, not having hardly changed over the years. On Saturday night I had the suckling pig which was overdone and dry, my wife had the cod which... More
