Warm, friendly and welcoming, The Dragoon is the perfect place to drop off for a pint and relax away from the bustle of the centre of the county town.
Licensees Colin and Janet Beck greet their regulars and passers by with equal aplomb and cheer and serve a decent selection of wine to complement Shepherd Neame’s ales and lagers.
They pride themselves on keeping a real community pub. The Dragoon dates back to the 1900s and has strong links with the armed forces, not least because of the Army camp that used to be up the road.
Sports fans frequent the pub to watch all the big games - football, rugby and golf in particular on Sky Sports.
The pub has its own darts and pool teams and visitors can enjoy a game or two or traditional pursuits like cards and board games.
Bands perform in the spacious pub for special occasions and by arrangement.
The Dragoon has disabled access and a sheltered outdoor area for smokers.
