A little pub history
Steeped in history, The Dragonfly sits in an area of great significance to the ancient Celtic people. The pub was formerly known as The Celtic Springs, referring to a sacred spring to the east of the inn. To its north sits another enchanted site, the infamous Witching Tree, a tree which Celtic myth states has people trapped within it.
