This is Bungay's only brewpub (since 1991) and is located on the north side of town and consisting of a separate public bar and lounge with an attached third room which usually provides some sanctuary when the bars are crowded.

Green Dragon beers are brewed in outbuildings adjacent to the car park located at the rear. Occasional bottled conditioned beers and strong ales are also brewed which compliment their quality draught ales.

The green dragon may be a reference to the Earl of Pembroke and appears on their coat of arms. William de la Pole, 1st Duke of Suffolk was an important medieval English soldier and commander in the Hundred Years' War and later Lord Chamberlain of England. He was created Earl of Pembroke in 1447 and Duke of Suffolk in 1448.
