In the shadow of Wymondham Abbey, this attractive timber-framed building makes quite the first impression, thanks to a frontage that appears to be leaning precariously out over the road. Things are just as striking inside, thanks to a well preserved, multiple-room interior, with a corridor leading you from the street, through the heart of the building and out into a small main bar area with a nice traditional dark wood servery in the front right corner and three or four small tables filling the rest of the room. Everything within this room is exactly how you’d picture it from outside, with white walls crossed by dark wood beams, low level lighting and a collection of ancient looking agricultural implements on display across both the walls and ceiling. A lovely brick fireplace on the back wall looks like it gets a fair bit of use in the colder months and no doubt makes this a very cosy spot indeed. From here, a larger front room can be accessed, full of more dark wood beams and pillars, sturdy looking tables and chairs and another fireplace which really acts as the room’s main focal point. Stairs lead up to a first-floor room with a lot more tables and chairs, but if you can’t tackle these, then you can keep heading to the rear for a small snug-like room with a few more tables in a nice, secluded part of the pub. A door to the side leads you out to a very pleasant three-tier garden with ample seating, plenty of bright plants and a large shelter to the rear. Most customers were sat out here on the bright, warm day we visited, many of whom were eating from the appealing pub menu.
The pub also has a reputation for keeping good cask ale and they had four available on this occasion – Newby Wyke Banquo, Robinsons Trooper, Coastal Cornish Porter and a house beer called Green Dragon. My pint of the Banquo was in good nick, despite the warm temperatures outside. The staff were very friendly, delivering prompt service on a very busy weekend day and dealing well with a couple of very drunk elderly ladies who turned up on bicycle and made a massive scene before being politely shown out the door.
This is a quality pub that has a great rural feel to it and is worth a look for the fine multiple-room interior alone. The fact that they also have a great beer garden, excellent service and well-kept beer makes it a destination pub and will reward repeat visits.

This is a cracking little timber framed, black and white pub in an intriguing market town. A mediaeval merchant’s house, this has the atmosphere of having been a pub for centuries, a spirit of conviviality.
A front room, laid up with tables and chairs, accessing the internal bar by way of a kind of porthole.Further along the centre passage, a snug,screened from without by a high backed settle. On our mid week lunchtime visit, the woodstove in the fireplace was unlit, due to the pleasant April sunshine.A smallish bar top, with four handpumps, serving Adnams Southwold Bitter, and three guests, from Norfolk Brewhouse and Robinsons.
Befitting the age of the house, the floors in the snug were of uneven red tiles showing a good deal of wear. The quality of the chamfering of the main beams attests to the historic status of the Dragon. Further back, in a Victorian service wing, is a small dining room decorated with old bills of sale and similar memorabilia, and a wonderfully distressed dresser.
As a town centre pub, there was a good mix of drinkers and diners, and it was good to hear a few local voices. Food was enjoyable, service friendly, and I particularly appreciated the Moon Gazer Dark Mild from Norfolk Brewhouse.Though not a spirits drinker, I noted a large collection of Single Malts behind the bar.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Green Dragon

This 14th Century Inn is well worth a visit. There were four ales on handpump on our visit, I went for Grain 316 and Nethergate Umbel Magna. The other two ales that were on were Adnams Southwold and Green Jack Orange Wheat Beer. We called in just after lunch and the pub had quietened off, so it was great to get a seat in the bar area next to the wood burning stove.
