The hamlet of Cockleford is situated in the heart of the Cotswolds, a tranquil and picturesque setting ideal for rest and relaxation. For visitors seeking an alternative to the bland uniformity of many a modern town centre hotel, the Green Dragon Inn offers an appealing individuality; roaring log fires, beamed ceilings and stone flagged floors set the scene for a relaxing experience. The Inn dates back to the 17th century, a popular retreat for those who appreciate good food, fine wine, real ales and comfortable cottage-style accommodation.

From the comfort of hand crafted furniture you can sample some of the real ales and fine wines available in the warm and friendly bars, the Green Dragon prides themselves on having a good selection of fine ales; Butcombe, Hooky, Doom Bar and guest ale's. For those who like a 'Wee Dramn' there is also a fine collection of malt whisky on offer.

For a tasty snack or full meal, the cosy and informal Mouse Bar or Lower Bar, provides a wide range of excellent traditional and modern "pub food with a difference". The food is freshly prepared daily by the resident Chefs, who take great care to ensure that the quality of the food served is of the highest standard and the menus provide something for the most discerning palate, or the most difficult child! Light meals and sandwiches are served lunchtimes Monday to Saturday only. To complement the food the comprehensive wine list includes wines from Europe and around the world, notable for its range and value.

For business or pleasure the charming, comfortable bedrooms provide a relaxing retreat. All nine en-suite rooms are double or twin and are individually furnished to a high standard. Z-beds and cots are available for infants and children upon request. Each room has direct dial telephone and a colour television. Facsimile services are also available to guests and Wi-Fi is available in the Main Pub. Room nine, the St George's Suite, is a bed-sitting room, equipped with a wide screen television, Wi-Fi, desk and comfortable sofas. It also has a luxury en-suite bathroom, perfect for that special occasion! Rooms cost from £70 for a single to £195 for the St George's Suite; a full English, or Continental breakfast, is included.

The function room with its own bar, caters up to one hundred people and opens out onto a spacious patio area overlooking one of the Cowley lakes. Guests can enjoy the delights of eating 'al fresco' in a beautiful setting, weather permitting. Available for private parties, wedding receptions and business meetings and conferences, there is a room hire charge, dependent on the size and type of event, from £200 to £500. For a unique and memorable experience the room can be turned into a skittle alley. Teams have been coming to the Green Dragon since the early 1900's to play skittles and they pride themselves on keeping the tradition going.

Far from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the Green Dragon Inn provides a peaceful and secluded haven in lovely surroundings.
