“Great place to stay and eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

One night stay with friends at the weekend. Although 1 room wasn't made up when we checked in early evening, the manager quickly sorted this and offered complimentary drinks.
The bedrooms and ensuites are ok, with everything you need for a short break but are looking a bit 'tired' . Powerful shower but very noisy! Another nice touch was the iron and board, not something you usually get in these sorts of places.
The food in the pub is very good, plenty of choice, well cooked and presented. Breakfast next morning was also plentiful.
The manager,deputy manager and the staff are all very friendly and welcoming without being pushy or fussy.
Overall a good place to stay and/or to eat and would recommend.

We visited as a group of six girls on Friday night for a meal. The food was gorgeous, we had three courses, the service brilliant and the pub had a really good atmosphere with a live singer on in the bar. Would really recommend this pub for a good night.

This pub used to be fantastic a 5/6 years ago but has suffered from many years of poor management. Quality of food dropped and so did our custom. Well I am delighted it is now run by people that don't believe the cheaper the better. Food is now excellent, portions much larger and service is quick and efficient. Lets hope this continues.

We arrived at Green Dragon over the Easter holidays and was welcomed by a very friendly chap who went through the full menu with us in detail, was a great welcome. The food was gorgeous and well presented (I got roast beef and my friend got the lamb off the specials board) followed by cheese & bicuits, and we both had a glass of wine each. The price was about £40 which I thought was a bit steep for a pub meal in pub surroundings, saying this - it is a nice venue and its good to go for a little walk around Welton afterwards.

Excellent spot for a nights break,rooms were exceptionally warm and comfortable and landlord and landlady very welcoming. For pub grub the food is excellent both evening meals and breakfast. However beware not sure about policy regarding measures at the bar. I purchased 7 pint of Peroni over the break between us and every measure was short,I reported the first 2 to the very abrupt barman that served me and was told the glasses were big !!! I am 54 and not that wet behind the ears, we let both pints setlle and both were well below the measure line. On second visit to bar same again so informed the manager who although very obliging did nothing with regard to the issue, and low and behold 3 further short measures !! At £3.95 a pint they can soon top up the takings if continue to dispense short measures.Be warned.

Room Tip: Room 2 very very comfy 4 poster bed.

Thank you very much for the positives in your review and can assure you I have dealt with the Peroni issue with some staff training and am very upset that it took the shine off what was a nice weekend for yourself. Please make yourself known to me on your next booking so we can put this right.

Visited with family, this pub could be a real gold mine with the setting and area, however, this is so not the case, on first look at the board there ws no Sunday lu ches left, so ordered off menu, there ws only one dish that they had, three dishes on the menu they didn't have including basic chicken nuggets for children! They had to make an alternative selection! Food that arrived only just average, table had old food stuck to it, experience not to be repeated. Can't wait for Triton to open again, it is everything this pub is not, efficient, clean, friendly and good food!

If you could make yourself known to myself and show me your trip advisor account I would very much like to put this right for you.
