The Welsh Dragon Bar is housed in a wonderful old historic domed building on a traffic island,
and was once the "loo stop" for the trams - hence their motto - "come in for a leek". There are
separate areas, which lends itself ideally for private party functions; a lounge room with leather
couches, a nice cosy bar with a fireplace being the focal point and then a pool room adorned with
rugby jerseys and french doors leading out to a lovely landscaped courtyard that is ideal for
smokers and barbeques in the summer.
The people at the Welsh Dragon Bar have a genuine passion for promoting their culture through the
authenticity of all their staff, food, music and memorabilia. The bar is far more of a "British
Style" country pub and it appeals to local residents as well as a great ex-pat following and
travellers alike. Many nights end in a sing song around the piano or with the guitar, and patrons
are chuffed to be invited to sign their relevant country's flag on the wall. Their unique
memorabilia includes love spoons, historic ties & rugby shirts, photos and numerous tea towels sent
in by returning visitors.
While the Welsh Dragon Bar no longer has a restaurant, they do serve bar snacks.
Their future plans are to enhance the lounge area by installing windows that open out to see
Courtenay Place and put small tables along the pavement area, as well as utilising the marvelous
glass roof which is hidden at present.
There is live music on most nights including a Welsh singer and also a well known theatre
performer who gets the crowds going with a percussion session into the early hours.
Jo Howard is the genuine Welsh owner and host and also cooks the Welsh meals so you are
guaranteed authenticity as well as the "Warm Welsh Welcome".
