Profile information

Retired from full time work, not yet retired from drinking. Like a hoppy, not malty beer. Wish I could find a pint like the old Boddington's or Wilson's of Manchester - not the imitations sold today under those names.

Most of the negative reviews on this site appear to be written by members of the same group. They appear to have been annoyed that they were told to keep the noise down. One reason I haven't camped for years. I used to run youth groups and I hated bringing the generally well-behaved young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to campsites where a bunch of over-privileged brats were effing and blinding all night. Cornwall during public school holidays anyone? Anyway the "Dragon" is no longer there and the pub has recently been re-furbished. Pity the prices have gone up too, but then so has the quality. The popularity of this place should tell its own story. I go for lunch there every other week and it's always full. Beer is Marstons and well kept. House wine is higher quality than in most pubs. The pub is still a bit lacking in character - I preferred it how it was. I should add the staff are excellent. Another reviewer said it was a sort of upmarket Wetherspoons. Well the food is cooked fresh for a start, and there is a proper chef. Wetherspoons food is designed to be all microwaved by unqualified staff. No comparison.

Acceptable pub with a bunch of regulars who hog the bar and some very irregular types who hover near the fireplace. Not a bad pint though, and you could do a lot worse if you have to drink in Frodsham

Good beer, and lovely food when I went. Basic but friendly local. Even as a stranger, people talk to you.
