Welcome to The Light Dragoon

Nestled among the rolling hills of the East Riding of Yorkshire sits the hidden gem that is The Light Dragoon in the beautiful village of Etton. With its commanding position in the village and its enviable reputation for top quality food, wine and ales it really is a must visit.

At The Light Dragoon we aim to capture the essence of a country inn, with our beautiful forty seater restaurant, relaxing bar area for drinking, and our large outside patio area perfect for enjoying the summer weather whilst surrounded by our glorious gardens.

Or why not pick up a book and curl up in front of one of our blazing fires in winter, there is a space and time here for you to relax and enjoy. Our three real fires, original oak beams and friendly staff make The Light Dragoon a place you'll never want to leave.

In keeping with our cosy interiors, our service is calm but focused, dedicated to ensuring that you thoroughly enjoy your time as our guest.

Etton is fast becoming central to the areas cyclists and walkers. We even have our own "Muddy Boots Bar" with an amazing open fire to toast your aching feet. Don't forget your four legged friends too, we are very, very dog-friendly and will always have a chew or two about for them to nibble on!

Beverley, and its impressive minster, is a mere 10 minute drive away, with the famous Beverley Racecourse even closer just in case you fancy a flutter!

!!!!! IF CARLSBERG DID SUMMER !!!!!
If Carlsberg did summer. It would be long sunny days. No work. It would be a drive in the convertible in the country. It would be stopping at a country pub. It would be The Light Dragoon. It would be in our Beer Garden. It would be a nice cool beer. It would be a chilled white wine. It would be a G n T with loads of ice and fresh lime and Juniper berries. It would be lunch with the finest fresh ingredients. It would be served by wonderful staff. There would be a gorgeous landlord who's so handsome you can hardly control yourself. If Carlsberg did summers they would be Light Dragoon summers. We're waiting. ........

!! LANDLORD NEEDED HIS MUSCLES !!
Well what a day Mothers Day turned out to be. The Light Dragoon catered for almost 250 happy customers on Sunday and almost 600 over the weekend. A big thank you to all that visited us. A lovely day spent with some of the yummiest mummies on the planet. A huge thank you to both our kitchen and front of house team who were remarkable and worked so hard to make it special for everyone. Our landlord as you can see needed all his muscle to get through the weekend too. Even had to strip to the waist at one point to keep cool. Don't forget to book your table early for Point to Point on Sunday 25th March so as not to be disappointed. We will be serving food until 8.30pm to accommodate the late comers. We're waiting....

!!!!!!!!!! JUST WOW !!!!!!!!!!
Valentines day yesterday was amazing. Our chef Chris came up with a gorgeous menu which was so well received. The Light Dragoon was full last night. Apologies to those that wanted to book and couldn't. The atmosphere was so romantic. Sexy lighting, candles everywhere, songs of love and amazing service from Charlotte and Sally. We've put a few snaps on to wet your appetite. Don't forget we are running our valentine's menu on Saturday 17th. But be quick we don't have many tables left. We're waiting.
