We came on the 27th of August and had a beautiful 3 course meal, the service was fantastic, the food amazing and I had a lovely Bakewell fizz - one of the prosecco cocktails which was really nice, would highly recommend a visit

We've visited the Dragon several times recently whilst we have been staying locally, whether we have been at breakfast, lunch or supper the food is consistently good. The staff are consistently helpful and a good feeling in this pub!

Traditional pub near marina and The Cottage B&B. Fantastic food sampled at lunch and breakfast. Great selection of ales including locally brewed options. Not cheap but well priced for the quality of food presented. Do not miss it if in the area.

Apparently so. We did not have a dog ourselves but we passed people on the stairs going up to their room with dogs.
