If you’ve not guess by now, we’re not your average city boozer.
When our manager opened the Green Dragon back in 1983, he did so with the intention of creating a space that offers weary urbanites the chance to relax and switch off from modern life. He pined for the rural pubs that he’d visited in his youth and wanted to bring that same bucolic vibe to the city. He designed our pub to be a post-modern marvel, a building that recalled the past whilst flatly denying certain aspects of our present day hence the lack of any televisions and the proliferation of book cases!
Little did he know that over 30 years later, the world would be even more hectic and modern life would have us shackled with even more bizarre gadgets and gizmos. Whilst we haven’t gone as far as to ban mobile phones in our pub, we have stuck to our founder’s original vision of a pub without televisions which makes it a perfect place to escape this year’s Six Nations…
Starting from the 1st February onwards we’ll be offering an alternative itinerary that will provide much needed asylum for any rugby refugees who need it:
Let The Games Begin: Board Game Bonanza
1st February, from 6pm
We kick off our alternative itinerary with a huge board game blow-out that is bound to be a hit with Rugby widowers looking for a bit of friendly competition. We’ll be emptying our games coffers, not to mention bringing a few extra special ones out of the closet to share with you all. Drop in at any time from 6pm and jump into a game when a space opens up. There’ll be plenty of variety, from marathon length role-players to quick-fire rounds of cards, so you should find something to your taste.
Starting Saturday 2nd February to 16th March, 2pm-5pm
Turn your frustrations into something creative at our regular Saturday Craft workshops. We’ll have a whole bevvy of materials and tools that you’re at liberty to use, so if you’ve got a backlog of DIY cards to put together we’ll have you covered. Each week we’ll be inviting a specialist crafter who will be demonstrating their particular talent and showing you how to do the same. There’ll also be a few stalls selling wares, should you wish to take a sneaky short-cut.
Quiz Me Silly
Starting Saturday 2nd February to 16th March, 6pm-9pm
There’ll be strictly no Sports round at this quiz, which will stretch your knowledge in every other area. In Green Dragon tradition, team entry is absolutely free so we won’t be offering any cash prizes, but there will be the opportunity throughout the quiz to win food sharers for your table and a few cheeky drinks. The grand prize is a slap up roast dinner for team member that can be cashed in on any following Sunday.
Classic Sunday Afternoon Movies
Starting Sunday 3rd February to 17th March, from 3pm
We might not have any telly screens here at the Green Dragon, but we do have a real film projector and an ever-growing selection of classic movies. Drop in every Sunday afternoon to catch a classic movie, get comfy in our screening room, order pints to your seat and help yourself to complementary popcorn whilst you’re at it. Entrance is strictly limited to 20 people on a first come first served basis for £5 a ticket. Check in the pub for our complete schedule.
