We have been informed that the Twist at the Green Dragon has closed, having ceased trading on Sunday 18th October.
If this information is confirmed, the closure represents sad news for the village as it means that yet another drinking/dining business is no longer available to us, following on the heels of the Red Lion and, a while back, the Peking Rendezvous.
What is it about this particular pub?
Clearly, given its recent history, there are major challenges when it comes to making the Green Dragon a commercial success. The business has been through at least three management teams or owners in the same number of years. But hopes were high that the business model which seemed to be prospering in Wendover would transfer successfully to Haddenham. Apparently this was not the case.
No doubt many of us will have our own opinion as to what is required to make the Green Dragon a successful pub/restaurant. However, if it was that simple, we presumably wouldn't be looking at closed doors and shutters once again.
