The Green Dragon is located in the rural idyll that is Flaunden, a picturesque village on the Chiltern Hills where south-west Hertfordshire meets Buckinghamshire. You will find Flaunden deep within a triangle formed by Chesham, Hemel Hempstead and Watford. And, as centuries-old tradition dictates, you’ll find The Dragon - as it is affectionately known locally - virtually adjacent to the village Church of St Mary Magdaline. Flaunden has long been a centre of choice for walkers.  For here on the Hertforshire- Buckingham border is stunning, robust walking country. Importantly, too, the Green Dragon is where both lone walkers and larger groups invariably pause, rest, refresh, and reflect; and to which they invariably return - either that day, or on their next visit. And many will be accompanied by their dogs - if well behaved, always welcome at The Dragon. As one incredulous American tourist remarked "Look at this place. You've got a dart board, four different board-games, card-games, dominoes and some weird thing with a wooden box and a bunch of little sticks, not to mention old-fashioned eccentricities such as Aunt Sally, wellie- throwing, shove ha'penny, marrowdangling, and conger-cuddling. You call this a bar? At home we'd call it a kindergarten!" The Green Dragon, Flaunden, Hertfordshire, HP3 0PP.

For like the dragons of myth and legend, the traditional pub is constantly rumoured to be fading gradually into the mists of time. Yet legend and reality can still be found co-existing  very happily indeed!
