We have been there for dinner after going to movies at the Garde Arts Theater right across the street. Love their Irish menu & many choices of great beer.

Joke. 15 minutes bartender couldn't make a Jameson and ginger. Sat there and sat there and sat there and sat there. Left went next store.

Typical Irish bar with american staff working, pleasant bar tender. Food mediocre, never expect much in an Irish bar. Atmosphere nice. Lots of memorabilia on the walls.

Looked forward to yesterday, St. Patrick's Day, for weeks as we planned our night out at Hanafin's Pub in New London. I'll start with the positives: The staff is beyond amazing! From the barstaff to the bouncer at the door, absolutely wonderful, friendly, welcoming and efficient. Now the negatives: the food is bland. My son-in-law had the shepherd's pie and... More

Food...not so much. Many variations of beer and a full bar. A wonderful boisterous atmosphere especially if a game is on. Owned and managed by lovely people.

I was enticed by the sign out front of this 'authentic Irish Pub' which read "Happy Hour 3-6". I went in to grab an IPA. After waiting a very long time, the barmaid got me an IPA (my 2nd choice, since the 1st choice was 'out'). It was $8. I asked about the "Happy Hour prices". She said "IPAs aren't... More

We came in on the train and were waiting for the ferry on a Sunday in June a bit after lunchtime. The town was pretty quiet but I figured a pub would be open. Hanafin's was a bit of a walk, but not too bad. We weren't in a hurry anyway and wanted to just eat and chill out for... More

We were regulars at the Glastonbury Hanafins. So much so a gift certificate was often a gift from our children for birthdays and Christmas. When the Glastonbury store closed, I called the New London store, but they refused to honor the gift certificate. I will not be frequenting Hanafins. Very disappointing.

4 of us were going to a show at the theater directly across the street from Hanafins . When we got there it wasn't very busy but it took awhile to be acknowledged and for the server to take our drink order. By the time she came to the table, we had plenty of time to review the menu so... More
