With some fine tiling in the front section and a large skylight at the back, this is a welcome outlet for cask beer. CAMRA Pub of the Season Autumn 2002. Children's licence until 20.00 (last food orders an hour before). in existence from 1702 as the Green Dragon and subsequently demolished and rebuilt by Richard Payne from Rochester (hence the name) although it was briefly the Tanners Hall in the 1980s. It is now Wetherspoon's longest trading pub.

Following CAMRA's updated definition of "real cider", pubs such as this selling for example Old Rosie and Orchard Pig or other ciders such as Thistly Cross, Stans, Gwynt Y Draig, Broadoak etc. no longer qualify for the "Real cider" tag.
