We thought we would start our Christmas activities with an enjoyable turkey lunch. Turkey lunch we had , but enjoyment was not on the menu. Turkey was overcooked, roast potatoes were decidedly undercooked, Yorkshire puddings were as flat as pancakes and the ball of stuffing could have been fired from a musket. Let's try puddings, we thought. Surely nothing can... More

We took friends here on a really filthy, cold and windy day. There was a blazing log fire in the main bar (the equally good but larger lower bar was closed). It was very charming. Service was very friendly and efficient. The food was excellent and reasonably priced, served on attractive, very hot plates. We had a delightful meal and... More

We came here recently for drinks and snacks and enjoyed the warmth from the log fires in both bars. We enjoyed the gluten free soup and the halloumi dish, both were very tasty. The Doom Bar ales were tops and the wines were fine. We'll be returning soon.

Whilst visiting Ian Coley's gun shop and clay pigeon shooting ground, I asked a member of staff where we could get a reasonable lunch in the pleasant surroundings of a country pub. We were told that The Green Dragon would meet our criteria. How right they were! The pub is indeed an old country pub, with at least one open... More

Have visited several times now. The menu has enough choice to keep everybody happy. The food and service is always fantastic. Would like to see some lighter options for desserts but coming up to winter I am sure the hearty ones they have will keep us pleased. I recommend everybody visiting this area to try this

Marvelous country pub with a great choice of ales and an excellent menu. An added bonus is the fact that they serve all day Sunday

We spent Friday & Saturday night here with friends both rooms were great and the evening meal on Friday excellent, breakfast was a superb full english packed with thick bacon and lovely skinny (not small) sausages....

We joined four other couples for a 2 night stay at the Green Dragon and incorporated 2 days racing at Cheltenham. The food, ale, hospitality and atmosphere were second to none and all our needs were met. The rooms are kept to a good standard with adequate space and views across the landscape.The bar area was great to sit and... More

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.
