Wrapped in Celtic mythology, The Dragonfly near Newport occupies supposedly enchanted, but undoubtedly beautiful, land. It boasts traditional British pub cuisine by the homely hearth-fire, or in the pretty beer garden which faces the peaceful Tredegar House Country Park.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Dragonfly menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Dragonfly ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

Though outside the city in the rustic countryside, The Dragonfly is only an 11-minute drive from Newport (South Wales) Train Station.

    We all loved the meal and the roaring fire!!! A really happy experience!

    Food is only average in view of cost of it. You could visit a cheaper pub chain and get a meal of the same quality. Not enough veg provided with pie or gravey boat provided and burger looked a little lost on plate - imagine a burger in a bun, a pot with a few chips in it and a very tiny pot of dip on a very large white plate.

    A rambling little restaurant, very user friendly, with a small outside area. Plenty of parking space. For a chain it's an acceptable family restaurant.

    The worst steak I have ever had. Would only give £5 of the bill not 20% on the £70+ I spent. Will never go back again.
