Service was very attentive. As previous visitors have mentioned it can be a little noisy as the ceilings are high. Food first class. The potted lobster to start was fantastic would highly recommend. Also the suckling pig. Could not fault a thing - will definitely be returning.

What a delightful venue! A very special place for a wedding reception, evening food was wonderful, bar was not overpriced. Staff were amazing.

If you want a peaceful Sunday afternoon drink, then this is probably not the venue for you. As a converted chapel, it tends to be echoing, so quiet conversations are difficult. Add to that an a capella group singing from the gallery... Drinks are Standard, if a little pricey, as is the bar food. I can think of a lot... More

I was best man for my friend's wedding and we held the reception at the Bel and The Dragon in Godalming. It could not have been more perfect; all of the staff were incredible - Sam the manager was a godsend since he knew more about the plans than both me and the groom, and genuinely cared that everything went...

I came here for dinner last week with my family and we were left feeling full and content! My husband ordered the steak, and I ordered the Risotto, in which neither disappointed us. The portion size was just right for me and the price was very reasonable. We also had lovely puddings to finish off the meal. The church has... More

We had a very good lunch at Bel and Dragon in relaxed atmosphere on Monday 8th August. As it combined a school reunion with friends of 60years ,we were all happy about the food and service for this special occasion. Thank you.

Food lovely, atmosphere relaxing and beautiful, child friendly but unfortunately each time I've been with a large group of 8-10 the service has been unacceptably slow with drinks and food to the extent I would not go back.

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.
