Old Green Dragon
Down-to-earth local village pub with a fine choice of beers and hearty food
The good pub guide review
There's a proper emphasis on excellent beer, wholesome food and a welcoming atmosphere at this homely red-brick local. There's an ever-changing range of four to six cask ales on handpump on the solid oak bar ' recent brewers have included Ashover, Geeves, Lenton Lane, Oakham, Shiny and Shipstones (check social media for regular updates) ' as well as up to six ciders, 12 gins and a smattering of whiskies. Although the interior is open-plan, there are four distinct areas including a snug and a dining section. The menu offers honest pubby food in generous portions, with special themed nights from Wednesday to Friday. Service comes with a smile, children and dogs are welcome, and there's a sunny patio with seating at the front (though it's a bit close to the main road) as well as a small garden.
