One of Croydon pleasant city places. Only been here for drinks but have never eaten here. They do have a nice selection of beers and plenty of space to sit. Close to many good restaurants in South Croydon.
Great staff, great food, good times!!
Wana try somewhere different that's a little quirky and attracts an alternative mix crowd, then you're like this pub!
You can catch live sports, play a board game, have a game of pool, watch a band if one on, or listen to the dj spinning some tunes!
Decent atmosphere to have a drink, no hassle and you can wear what you like!
If you like trendy chains then you won't like this pub!
don,t rate this place at all expensive,service is not great. I have bean here a couple times and that was enough 4 me!!!
This building has gone through several changes in facade: it used to be a bank, then an estate agent, and has been a pub for approximately a decade. In its guise as The Green Dragon, the pub has slightly alternative leanings, hosting live bands in the metal/prog rock vein, but also caters for gentler evenings by providing board games for customers to play while enjoying a few drinks (which are priced around the market rate).
The pub attracts quite a nice crowd and has the advantage of staying open until 1am, so is good to move on to if you're not quite ready to go home at midnight but don't fancy a full-on night on the tiles.
Hard to believe the Green Dragon isn't here already! Since it opened, it has become one of Croydon's top pubs and that isn't damning it with faint praise. The sheen has come off a little and it looks a little more lived-in than it did a couple of years ago but they are still following the formula that has made the pub a success in the first place. It's a bit of a melting pot, with a real cross-section of drinkers there and with its community-minded policies, it's like a proper local. However, if a pub is defined by its beer, then the Dragon is at the top of the pile, regularly winning awards from the local branch of CAMRA. They have a variety of British ales on tap and all are well-kept, should that float your boat. The food is simple and basic but very reasonable. During the days it is quiet but on the weekend it can be noisier, usually underpinned by an eclectic soundtrack. With gigs upstairs during the week, it is a good place to spend some time. Why the four stars? Little niggles I guess but mainly it gets four stars because it's not as good as it used to be.
I hired the upstairs for a works party. Easy to organise although the new bar staff kept giving me the wrong email address. The food was decent quality for a buffet and there was plenty of it. They provided staff on the upstairs bar especially for us at no charge but there were over 100 of us so we did bring in a lot of money for them on a wednesday night. Nice, easy place to have a drink. Friendly staff and good atmosphere.
Dearest pub in town. the food is waaaay over rated.In All honesty looking tatty and a little unclean,the wait can be forever.
