Bartenders think they're doing you a favor. Dark and dingy inside. Overpriced everything. Find another place to have cocktails.

Harp and Dragon has been famous for their 1/2 of happy hour for just about everything. I have gone many times and stayed long after happy hr ends so I still spend good money there but without a good happy hour to get things going it is just not as attractive. Current happy hr is 25% of food and beer... More

The Harp is my most favorite spot, especially their roof top deck in the summer with their fire pits. Great selection of beers. Awesome happy hour where everything is half off. Menu is a little limited and very Irish oriented- a lot of items have corn beef in them i.e. mac and corn beef, corn beef fritters. Food is okay-... More

We've eaten here many times. As the years have passed both the food and service have gone downhill. We got the colcannon and the bangers. The bangers were italian sausages, and raw in the middle. Both dishes were over-garliced, and I am still exuding garlic today. The service was very slow but the restaurant was not full. It just seemed... More

Went to see red light Jan 28. Arrived around 9. Took about 20 min to order a drink. Bartender actually left one of our drinks, a beer, under the tap and left. The staff looked miserable. I had to request the beer from the bar back since I already paid. Finally found a table, expected it to be busy because... More

I absolutely love the vibe of this place. The bartenders are friendly and service is quick. Local entertainment and plenty of places to sit. We really enjoy going out to the H&D!

We went because we had heard great things from friends and found a Groupon deal that was too good to pass up. The food and drinks were great and they have capacity for at least 100 with a great patio upstairs and all you can eat lobster bake. Definitely bring your appetite.

I work in Norwich and sample the different, and most of the time amazing, food from all over town. Looking for a "dinner" portion for lunch to bring back to my coworkers. On the surface the pub appears aesthetically pleasing. Wait staff is decent. Food was cold, extremely small and frankly cheap tasting. (boxed potatoes in an Irish pub???) But... More

Okay...first off...I was afraid I was arriving at a dump. NOT SO! :) I walked inside and into a great tavern/pub...with a superb bartender...who was great, knowledgeable and helpful with her recommendations. The Harp & Dragon in my estimate could be the best place to be on St. Patrick's Day or a Sunday afternoon as we lucked out. It's a... More
