Lunch in or near Sharon, CT

Will be visiting Sharon CT next week and am looking for options for lunch.

OK Hounds let me know of a good place for sandwichs and salads. Any pubs in the area?

    Nothing much in Sharon itself, but if you take Route 41 north to Lakeville, there are at least a half dozen restaurant choices, including the pub-like Black Rabbit Bar & Grill.

          Reading this while sipping a cup of Harney's Tea. They are a importer and vendor of tea and the tea house is just a nice little isdeline to their main business. The Harney family are really nice people, too. I used to do business with them in the early 2000s

            For half a sec, I wondered what an isdeline was till I figured out it was a typo. HA HA HA! :)

            For folks who don't know Harney, not only can you buy tea and have lunch, but there's an entire tasting room where you can sample before you buy. They have cool tea accessories, too. I used to have pics on here, but they vaporized when Chow got rid of the restaurant database.

            Which are your faves? If you like a flavored green tea, try their tropical green (it's kind of pineapple-y). I'm ultra fond of all their chocolate varieties (Florence - chocolate hazelnut, chocolate mint, just plain chocolate)...you get the picture. Nice to know nice people are behind the teas I enjoy so much.

              In 2002 I helped Mr. Harney locate a part for an old piece of telecommunications equipment, saiving him from spending many thousands on an uneeded new system (as he was told he needed by a local vendor). The next day i received a parcel with about 30 boxes of tea as a thank you (class act).

              Like you I am partial to the chocolate varieties...........

                  When I first moved here, one of the sons introduced me to the family- and gave me a tour of the plant. Amazing success story. Truly delicious tea. Lovely family. Good realtors too :)

        When Pigs Fly, is located in Sharon, CT 1 block away from hospital. Its a BBQ takeout (soon to be tiny restaurant any day now) was very good. Had sliced brisket on roll- maybe a tad too saucy, but that's just how I like it. Brisket had nice smoke flavor, I would have liked a bit of fat- so those of you who like lean, this is your place. The slaw had good flavor, I like mine a little bit finer cut, but good tang. Roll was a "potato- like" roll. My lunch companion had a side of beans. Tasted homemade from small beans. It was pretty good, could have cut back on the cumin. 2 sandwiches (very filling) comes with a side each plus a drink was $20.10. We were stuffed. Just so you know, for now its cash only. They have an atm machine inside.
