COVID NOTICE – Whilst we aim to offer as close to our normal experience as we can, customers are advised that there are still huge challenges with our supply chain, with additional processes to follow and less staff to work in areas. Our menu is currently reduced, there may sometimes be a wait on food but we are doing everything we possibly can to maintain supply and consistency. It is however not easy so please be kind to our staff. To meet every customer’s pre-COVID expectations is our aim but please bear with if we just cant! *Food service hours are currently reduced – please book a table online where the current service hours are offered.
Traditional welsh hospitality is the order of the day at The Dragon Inn and a big part of that has always been good quality food. We’re blessed to be located in a good stock-rearing area in The Brecon Beacons National Park. The local beef, lamb, pork and turkey are all excellent as is the venison and wild game. Our fish is sourced from the Welsh and Cornish coastlines. We take pride in supporting our local businesses and many of our suppliers are local to crickhowell including: Cashell’s Butchers, Black Mountain Smokery, The Welsh Venison Centre, Askews Bakery, Alex Gooch Bakery among many more!
The Dragon Inn Restaurant & Bar specialises in producing a range of traditional dishes and food is served all day. We offer meals from our own “Dragon burgers” home made from premium cut locally supplied steak and beautiful sirloins through to dishes like Welsh Lamb loin chops with caramelised vegetables roasted in honey & thyme. Vegetarian & gluten free options are available, as are sandwiches and bar snacks for those looking for something smaller during the day. All Allergies are catered for, please just ask our staff.
Celtic Pride Welsh Beef Steaks, a speciality at the Dragon Inn – Celtic Pride is a collaboration of three of Wales’ leading agri-food businesses: The Welsh Meat Company, Castell Howell Foods and Wynnstay Farmers. Beef marketed under the Celtic Pride brand can be traced from farm to customer and is produced and processed in Wales to meet the highest standards of quality, health, taste and flavour. These standards are achieved by the adoption of best practice in production and the meat being matured for 21 days.
Children are welcomed and our “Dragonette” menu includes family favourites such as children’s pasta, fish fingers, Chicken nuggets and we will always try and accommodate our younger guests by offering smaller portions of our main meals where possible. We have high chairs, crayons and children’s meal deals in the hope we make your children just as welcome.
Dogs are also welcome at the dragon – we have areas allocated within the restaurant so please book always a table to avoid disappointment and indicate you have a dog. Dogs are welcome in all outdoor areas including the courtyard and garden.
The restaurant also has our best value Steak Night on a Tuesday where the same quality steaks can be enjoyed at a reduced cost and Sunday lunch is mainly a roasting event featuring sirloin of local beef, roasted pork loin or roasted leg of Welsh lamb. Our gravy will light up your day as will our roasted vegetables. We also offer our full daytime menu on a Sunday if a roast doesn’t take your fancy or you have special dietary requirements.
