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!

Katelyn is one of the best bartenders I have met. She is very friendly and attentive. Danny who is her manager always gives great customer service. Come and enjoy the harp..,you will enjoy your experience..!

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

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
