The existence and stability of quiescent solitons in a dual core optical medium, where the one core has only Kerr nonlinearity while the other has Bragg grating and dispersive reflectivity are investigated. Three spectral gaps are identified in the systems linear spectrum, in which both lower and upper band gaps overlap with one branch of the continuous spectrum for all values of normalized group velocity $c$ in the linear core; and, the central band gap remains a genuine bandgap. Soliton solutions exist only in the lower and upper gaps. In the absence of dispersive reflectivity, stable solitons are only found in the upper bandgap. However, introduction of dispersive reflectivity significantly alters the stability characteristics of solitons and results in the stabilization of solitons in a portion of the lower bandgap.
