I got invited by my brother to come see a band and to be honest I was not disappointed, the venue was great and the bar staff friendly and up for a bit of banter. I'm definitely going to go again.

Great place for tribute bands and tremendous metal sounds. A friendly welcome and some good banter. This place is professionally run and is making its name as one of the places to go for top music. We'll be back.

Great friendly pub. Staff are great, it's a good pint, and top bands every week. Now I've moved to the area I will be visiting more often.

The Dragonffli is probably the first decent live music venue you will find north of Newport. I travel up from Cardiff for some of the best gigs but there's always something cool going on there every week. I even met Duff McKagen from Guns n...More

The welsh have a penchant for loud rock. I visited this place the other weekend after finding a band on their page that I liked called Tradish. Valleys towns are pretty void of live music and this place serves where none others don't. The Dragonffli...More
