Description: A traditional country 17th Century inn situated in the Cotswolds only 15 minutes drive from Cheltenham, Gloucester and Cirencester. The Green Dragon Inn continually proves to be a popular retreat for those appreciating good food, fine wines and real ales. Set in the countryside for a relaxing experience and great walks from the door.On a fine day, sit outside amongst the honeysuckle and hanging baskets or on colder days relax by the log fires in our Oak beamed bars. Browse over our extensive menu and daily changing specials board, where our chef uses his creativity in producing “pub food with a difference"One of our special features of the pub is the ‘Mouse Bar’. The furniture and the bars themselves have been made by Robert Thompson, the famous ‘Mouse Man of Kilburn’ with small mice running all over the hand carved chairs, tables and mantelpiece! To complement the food there is a wine list notable for its range and value. We also have a good selection of fine ales; Hook Norton, Otter, Doom Bar and GL Cider. Nine comfortable bedrooms are individually furnished to a high standard, all with their own en-suite bathroom. The rooms are all doubles and twins, and extra beds for children can be provided if needed. In addition we have the St. George’s Suite and has its own sitting room. Also an ideal venue for weddings.

“Great ambience and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

Cosy pub with great ambience, particularly on a blustery autumnal evening. Log fire, the smell of woodsmoke, stone floors, nooks and crannies, a well stocked bar and a mouthwatering menu. The food is a little overpriced ...don't mind paying over the odds if the quality is worth it. (The roast potatoes had that pre-cooked flavour) The service is exceptional! Couldn't ask for a more friendly, attentive service which made up for our slight dissapointment with our meal.

“Good evening out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

First night out as a couple for ages. Food was very good, a bit noisy but there was also a larger party at the same time. Would recommend if looking for a nice restaurant/pub for a relaxed and comfortable evening. Love the real fire too.

“A little treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

Great food and lovely atmosphere, particularly in the winter with its winter fire. Service is also very good and the prices reasonable for what you get.

“One of our favourites”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

We have been here quite a few times and a few years ago stayed here for 4 weeks. Definitely one of my favourite places for food and the service is always friendly. make sure you book though as it gets very busy.
