The Rutland CAMRA Pub Of The Year (POTY – we love an acronym) 2018 goes to the Green Dragon in Ryhall. This is the second time that Shaun and Debbie Rolfe, Landlord and Landlady, their team and customers have been recognised as the best pub in the county.
With four hand pumps the Dragon is described in the Good Beer Guide as a Former Melbourns stone built pub in the heart of the village. The Main building is Grade II Listed and was built in the 17th Century and gives the Green Dragon Pub a nice cosy feel with its low ceilings and nooks and crannies. Superb home cooked meals are served and as the pub has it’s own pizza oven these are a speciality of the house and served daily.
David Laughton, Pubs Officer said “The Dragon is what it a pub should be: welcoming, friendly and at the heart of the community. They kindly offer card carrying CAMRA members a 20p discount on real ale and run a very successful beer festival usually held in May. Well worth a visit.”
Landlady, Debbie Rolfe said: “We are delighted to get the POTY again. It means a great deal to all of us here, Shaun and I are very pleased to accept this award which means a great deal to staff and customers alike. CAMRA is doing a great job in helping pubs like us remain the real heart of the community.”
