|Incidentally under a new manager, Carl having left in September to work some magic at a pub in Islington. Sue is now at the helm, who from what little exposure thus far seems to run a reasonable ship. Certainly at first glance there is little if any difference; decor, layout, drinks and food all seem to be very similar to under Carl's steerage. Which should be a positive, as the GD still manages to sell its wares to a variety of different clientele - usually the more civilised sorts I'm happy to report - depending on the time of day and day of the week. Sometimes good management is about changing little and maintaining prior good standards. |
My only minor criticism is perhaps that the cask beer choice isn't quite as diverse as it was before; a few more adventurous options wouldn't go amiss for those of us who find this the key attraction of the pub. We don't need a surfeit of Marstons-related offerings when we could have more interesting "locales" from local businesses.
Food remains of the Mediterranean flavour, and very tasty it is. Apparently it'll be moving from Spain towards Italy as home-prepared pizzas are due to be introduced shortly.

|Spacious pub on the site of (apparently) a former bank. Good selection of ales and food (both individual dishes and shareable ones). Long walk to the loos!|

|The Dragon continues to feature in the CamRA Good Beer Guide, hopefully indicating it is still holding its own as a destination for quality beers under the current management. |

|Had an unexpected spare hour in croydon. Not expecting much I much I have to admit. This is a lively town pub and I was pleasantly surprised. Good selection of ales. Mixed clientele. |
