“Great Homecooked Food”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

Recently moved to the area so pleased that we have found a really nice pub that serves great food. Adam is a first class chef who serves delicious homecooked food. Last night I had beef in red wine pie with perfect chips (Adam's chips are the best I have ever eaten!) & a really generous portion of varied veg. My husband had the homemade chicken kiev which he said was the best he has ever eaten, accompanied by chips & a large, tasty salad. Although we had eaten every scrap & were really full we couldnt leave without having a pudding - I had the raspberry crepe & ice-cream & my husband had the cointreau creme brulee. Both excellent choices. Topped off with two large glasses of excellent Merlot we had a really enjoyable evening & one we shall be repeating in the very near future. The host Allen came in to the restaurant to welcome us & to make sure everything was to our liking & you could tell he really wanted his guests to have the best possible time in his pub unlike other places we have eaten in where although you are asked if everything is ok the waiter/waitress doesnt even bother to wait to hear your reply. Our waitress Karen was lovely too. Cant wait to return.

“Really lovely food and atmosphere!”
Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

Met here with some friends from work for a meal and chat. Great welcome by Bev and pub had a lovely traditional atmosphere- didn't need to shout over the music or gaming machine ah...lovely!
Very nice meal all home cooked and chatted with chef who came and talked us through his desserts......
Decided it will be our regular meet, a really different experience in the usual overload of predictable chains.

“Lovely lunch.”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

We popped into Ye Older Greene Dragon today after some Christmas shopping. The hosts were very welcoming and friendly and the lunch menu had plenty of variety. We had sandwiches and baked potatoes and both were generously proportioned and well-presented. My friends enjoyed the real ales and I appreciated the variety of non-alcoholic Fentimann's drinks. A good discovery!

We love it as the hosts Bev and Allen make you feel so welcome and the food cooked by Adam is delicious. We go in for Saturday lunch, bar snack and glass of wine and also regularly for a meal in the evening.
