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.

Make a day of it

The Dragon Fly is right on the doorstep of Tredegar House, the ancient home of the Morgan Family, set in a beautiful 90 acre park. Nearby Bassaleg draws many visitors and the Cwm Hedd Lakes offer numerous activities.
