Our local pub, the Green Dragon, Exelby, had a grand opening last night. With an excellent free buffet and music from the Sugartown Duo a good night was had by all.
After a turbulent few months and a number of different faces behind the bar, the new Landlord and Landlady along with the manager Helen and chef Andy are keen to get it up and running again as the friendly hub of the village it should be.
Carl and Alyn already run the highly successful New Inn at Thrintoft and should easily be able to build on that reputation. They will oversee everything and be on-site as required but the day to day running will be taken on by their manager Helen.
A superb new menu is on offer from today and with music planned every few weeks, they are off to a good start.
Opening times are Mon - 5 to 11pm --Bar only
Tues to Fri - 5 to 11pm with food served between 5 and 9pm
Sat - 12 noon to 11.30pm with lunch from 12 to 2.15 and Dinner 5 to 9pm
Sun - 12 noon to 7pm with lunch served between 12noon and 4.30pm
Lunchtime openings will commence with the warmer weather.
A friendly welcome awaits so come and support them and get the pub back to how it should be.
p.s. We are eating there on Saturday so will report back.
