Pretty good eats!

It's a pub, and the food is pretty good for a pub. They probably try to serve a few more items than necessary. They, of course, fry a lot. Good atmosphere. My first time to try colcannon. It was heavy, but it was delicious for someone who loves garlic and corned beef as I do.

We were searching for a place to eat and happened upon this pub. We were greatly surprised, expecting burgers and pub grub we found authentic Irish fare. The Colcannon and Bangers and Mash are the best this side of Belfast! The bathroom on the main floor, however, was a bit rough.

Waitresses were fine, but cook staff was totally unorganized and unprepared. Had to wait over an hour to start courses. Chowder was hot but corn and potatoes were served cold. Finally got steamers, but they were cold and we were given two servings for five people. Took 3 hours to be served 3 lobsters. No manager on site. Finally was... More

The Harp and Dragon is my favorite spot for a bite to eat after a night out to the theater. My favorite sandwich is the Galway, and I love the Blarney Stones! The atmosphere is similar to a Irish pub.

Harp & Dragon is a friendly, cut epub I'd be glad to frequent. I came here for dinner and drinks after hearing about it from friend who lived in the town, and I'm glad I did. They have a pretty good beer selection and their food menu was also unique. Nt every pub you visit has good drinks AND food,... More

Lots of teachers and area workers frequent the place during happy hour. A fun little hometown bar. Food is very good also. Can get very crowded but after happy hour place seems to empty out.

Decent place to sit down for a drink as they have a good happy hour. Staff was reasonable friendly but are somewhat reserved, not outgoing. Sandwiches were good and prime rib was very thick however Cesar salad turned out to be a house salad.

I want to be fair when I complete this review. Hats off to Mr. Capuano for taking the time and effort to make his mark in Norwich.
