The British are known for their parliamentary democracy and ability to consume salty beef extract while retaining a stiff upper lip. Reconnect with your transatlantic neighbors with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of British-pub fare and drinks at The Dragon Pub in Frankfort.
The Dragon Pub preps the edibles found in traditional English drinking and eating establishments, plus its own house specialties and health- and animal-friendly options. Thirsty diners munch on bangers and mash—thick sausages steamed in Guinness beer served with hearty mashed potatoes submerged in red-onion gravy ($7.95)—which couples well with a pint of Guinness ($4) or Woodchuck draft cider ($3.50). Fiery Dragon's Breath wings heat up taste buds in broods of six ($4.50) or 12 ($7.50), with buffalo, bourbon barbecue, and Cajun-style options. Herbivorous beasts may mash molars against the portobello and organic baby-spinach quesadilla ($7.95) or the portobello burger topped with baby spinach, tomato, provolone cheese, and pesto mayonnaise ($7.95). A variety of bottled domestic, craft, and import beers and local hard liquors usher solids down gullets.
The Dragon Pub's multilevel deck overlooking the Kentucky River affords commanding views of Frankfort's Capitol Dome. Within, patrons swig and chow amid exposed-brick walls while comfortably seated atop carved wooden chairs, reminiscent of those in recreation rooms of stately manor homes. Weekly trivia nights, band performances, karaoke, and open-mic events at The Dragon Pub offer opportunities to celebrate special occasions, such as birthdays and Opposite Day.
