The rebuilt bar of the same name is a shadow of it's former self. Poor choice of beer and very average food. The steak pie should... More

My wife and I decided to have a drink at the Kitchen bar before our dinner. As it was Easter Saturday it was quiet,so we got a table and saw some footy as well as chatting away. Love the design

Purpose build eatery pretending its a pub. I gather its a plastic replica of a legendary but different place from 10 or so years ago that was demolished nearby. As is frustrating throughout Belfast and NI generally, NO choice of real locally crafted beers or ciders on draft. Only mass-produced stuff pretending it is "local" to the innocent and the... More

The beer on tap was disgusting and the bottled beer was out of date.The atmosphere was just after work drunkards. This is possibly the worst bar in Belfast.

Had the Sunday roast here today and it was not good at all. The roast beef was lukewarm and chewy and the rest of the trimmings where bland and tasteless. Watery veg and tasteless mashed potato and a very sorry roast potato. Service was fine, but no one asked how the food was so was not able to give feedback.... More

I had dinner here with friends on Sunday, Dec 14th. I rang earlier in the day to make a reservation; asked for 8pm but was told the kitchen closes at 8, so made it for 7pm. We arrived at 7 and were seated with menus. I left the table briefly and as soon as I came back the waitress was... More

Went there recently with friends. Great atmosphere, friendly staff and really good but non fancy ulster pub grub. If you want a plain old Ulster pub meal go here for the quality is excellent.
