11 The Green, Willington, Derby, DE65 6BP

Situated in the heart of Willington village, overlooking the Trent and Mersey canal, this historic venue is bursting with character and charm. There’s nowhere quite like The Dragon on a sunny afternoon, when guests flock to the picturesque beer garden perched on the edge of the canal. The new Garden Room, a glass structure with a retractable canvas roof, gives perfect protection from the elements and offers al fresco dining all year round. Guests can watch the boats floating along the canal, and enjoy the benefits of being simultaneously inside and outside.

You can pop in to The Dragon for a hearty breakfast or light lunch, but you can also enjoy a sumptuous afternoon tea, or even a three-course supper. If you’re feeling peckish, why not take a seat in the extensive restaurant and dine on a delicious selection of classic and contemporary dishes? You could start with peppered beef fillet or perhaps artichoke and celeriac risotto with potato foam and truffles. To follow, you may favour tender duck breast with celeriac fondant, creamed cabbage and a light jus, or you may be more tempted by fish of the day with kale, pommes Anna and rich smoked cauliflower velouté. Finish by sampling creamy vanilla panna cotta with cherry textures and aerated chocolate, or tuck into rich baked Alaska with malt toffee parfait and hazelnut meringue.
