Dragon’s Lair Consistent with its rural heritage, dogs are always very welcome at The Dragon - provided, of course, that they are well- trained and behaved. So, too, are the many horses that frequent the lanes of this area of Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire. Indeed, a safe and purpose- designed sanctuary with hitching rail for several horses is thoughtfully provided within the pub’s own car park - which can also accommodate up to 30 vehicles. Dragons Pantry The Dragon’s only significant compromise in respect of English pub cultural tradition can be seen in its cuisine - which can be enjoyed either within the beamed restaurant, which seats 20, or, less formally, in the bar areas. Alongside the traditional ‘pub grub’ menu and selection of sandwiches freshly made to order, there is a quality Thai menu featuring over 40 authentic dishes - all served daily (except Mondays) untill 10pm. Four real ales Real ales customarily on offer are Fullers ESB - winner of more CAMRA awards than any other beer - and the ubiquitous Fullers London Pride, alongside Youngs and Tribute. Always available as well to meet other preferences and tastes are draft Guinness and a dark mild, together with lagers and cider and a panoply of bottled beers.

Certainly, the relaxed ambience created by the beautiful, sympathetically-extended building - much of it dating from the 17th Century - is unarguably enticing. Lorem ispum
