We went on a City Running Tour and our guide informed us of the unique history involved with the GDT. The food and service was fine. My son had the Bangers And Mash. I had the PotPie. There is a lot of history to look at hanging on the walls. No complaints, just not an extraordinary meal.

Noon on the Saturday before St. Patrick's Day, the Green Dragon was already hosting at least two pub crawl groups, but the staff was friendly and pleasant. The Guinness stew was hearty and warming and the waitstaff attentive. The placemats have a great little story about the history of the place.

Stopped in for a beer one evening. Good selection, kind of slow service but overall a good atmosphere. It's loud so don't expect quiet conversation - but its a tavern, so pretty expected. Neat little historical stop that should be tried at least once.

Nancy and I were following the Freedom Trail when we saw a group of costumed revolutionaries walking down the road. We left the Trail and followed them to the Green Dragon, and what a good decision that was! Spent a large portion of our day enjoying good pints in a warm, quaint pub while chatting with a variety of tour... More

We stopped here for appetizers and beer on an icy cold evening. The food and drink were fine and the prices reasonable. But what made it special was the huge group of people in Revolutionary War dress. They had been at the reenactment of the Boston Massacre which occurred on March 5, 1770. They were a fun bunch of people!!

This is a great place to eat after a tiring day of walking the freedom trail. The atmosphere is historic with a very chill vibe and pub is just a really cool part of history. We had fish & chips, chicken & chips, and some kind of stew. The food was delicious and the prices were good. Highly recommend!

For my father's birthday weekend dinner we were to all go to The Green Dragon Tavern since he loves pubs. However, our experience was nothing shy of disappointing. When we entered there was no one to seat us, and we were instantly struck deaf due to the wretched singing (screaming) of a one man band that was set up in... More

Stopped in along our walk on the Freedom Trail. Nice historic atmosphere and decor. We had the Redcoat Wing Sampler, the Dragon Sliders and the BBQ Pub Wrap. The wings were great. Crispy and perfectly seasoned. The portions were perfect for lunch

It dates back to being the oldest tavern in the US. Music was live and the band was lively. People dancing in the small space at the entrance. All kinds of brews available and of course, the bartender appeared bored with the place and gawking people hoping to find ghosts and history stories!!! Stayed in a for some time and... More

Historical pub with ambience. Had a few brews and savored the experience. Tried the Green Dragon brew (not brewed on site) and didn't care for it. Service was average. Not crowded.

Thank baaaaaaa

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
