The Green Dragon Inn, November 1997

It's easy to find. Just follow the main street down to the Monnow Bridge, admire it, cross it, and you'll see the pub behind the small roundabout. A friendly landlord greeted us as we walked in to the pub. There's 2 comfortable bars in the pub, both of which were full of locals enjoying a pint and/or some of the reasonably priced varied home-made food. Beerwise I had a great pint of Hancock's HB and Morrell's Varisty, the latter one of their selection of guest beers. Both were excellently served and cheered me up no end - I'd been stung by a wasp on my right foot that morning and could hardly walk. The beer reduced the pain considerably! One other point worth mentioning are the amusing cartoons in the men's loos. I say men's loos as Christine wandered into the ladies and found none there. I guess it must be men's toilet humour only!
