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.

Excellent food and service. As a vegan, the quality and choice is excellent. I have to say, the non vegan food looked superb; large portions and hot. The service is very good; no fuss, no drama. We enjoyed it so much we’ve booked Christmas lunch.

No note had been made that I requested to sit near the fire. They had run out of turkey roast dinners and a few other items from the menu. My starter was freezing cold so i sent it back. By the time a new one came 35 minutes later, they were serving everyone's mains. But apart from that, the food we did have was lovely and the staff were polite. An enjoyable evening overall.
