In December 1971 it was reported that an old man trap was hanging on display in the bar, a fearsome instrument once used by landlords to deter or catch poachers. Is it still there?

The Green Dragon was briefly owned by the now defunct Smiles Brewery of Bristol (in the mid 1990’s?), but it has now been sold and operates as a free house once more.

This page will be updated with additional information.
