OK... the last time Ray & I and another guest ate here - January 2015 - it was well...horrible. especially the horrible service. So - I have to say right off the top - our waitress - Kayla was a genuinely good waitress. When we first walked in - we sat in a nice booth in the quiet section -... More

Located in downtown Norwich near the harbour in a gentrified section of Norwich. Three story with a great roof deck. Nice bar main floor and roof. Good selection of beers and a great selection of good food which is not always the norm for a pub

I went to the Harp & Dragon with my family last night for the All You Can Eat Lobster Bake. We certainly got more than we ever expected! Cold food, under cooked lobsters and food poisoning of 5 people in our party !!! Management is so rude and had no regard to his customer by saying that they served over... More

I have tried numerous times to like Harp & Dragon. They have poor service, there is always an occasion to be said no to , they have many rules and they make no effort to please customers or do the right thing. Originally ( years ago) it was a great place but has not been good for a few years... More

Great potential but always seems to just miss the mark Large bar with lots of nooks and crannies like a true Irish pub Nice outside upper deck patio Nice beer selection but more times than not multiple selections unavailable Even bar staff don't know until after you order then " sorry but don't have that beer" Even though it's on...

I didn't want to cook so we went. Awesome service and the prime rib is "Flinstonian" in size. Great service. Sit upstairs on the nice days. Prices were reasonable as well.

I arrived with my out-of-town guests at 7:30pm on a Thursday evening. We were told to seat ourselves. After 15 minutes we had to remind a waitress that we were there. She came with menus and had to be told to clean the table first. We promptly ordered, (burgers and fries) and then waited an hour and fifteen minutes for... More

A lot of gnats flying around the bar. We both had fish and chips, the chips were cool, not warm or hot, and the fish was luke warm. The kitchen must of been having a bad day. Tarter sauce on one plate only. Much more fish on one plate than the other. The coleslaw was also very warm. Not at... More

This bar has the potential to be so much better than it is. Every time I visit it seems to have gotten worse. If you want food, the service sitting at the tables is the worst! The last 3 times I've sat at a table with a group of friends the service is extremely slow and at least one thing... More

As much as I want the Harp and Dragon to succeed because it is close by, it has really gone downhill. The food was good at one point but now is overpriced and barely edible. My wife and I went in recently and the menu has completely changed. Our favorites that are still on it, like the Galway, have become... More
