The Dragon, is a 150 year old pub with character, charm and a warm welcome! Situated in the heart of Willington village, backing on to the Trent and Mersey canal. It has recently been sympathetically extended, renovated and restored with the introduction of a new 70 seater restaurant, courtyard and dedicated bar area to compliment our fabulous beer garden, on the edge of the canal. There is nowhere quite like The Dragon on a sunny afternoon…

We are the area’s favourite destination for diners, drinkers, walkers and boaters alike. We serve a superb selection of classic and contemporary dishes throughout the day. Bookings are advised for evenings and weekends but there is plenty of room and plenty of parking with a FREE public car park right next door! There is always plenty to see and do at The Dragon including featured dining nights, themed evenings and community events.


Our restaurant serves a selection of classic and contemporary dishes, snacks and sandwiches...

  • 12pm until 3pm and 5.30pm until 9pm Monday to Thursday
  • 12pm until 9pm EVERY Friday, Saturday and Bank Holiday
