Description: Lavery's is Belfast's oldest family-owned pub, at the heart of the city's...
Lavery's is Belfast's oldest family-owned pub, at the heart of the city's social life for almost 100 years. Perfectly located a short distance from both the city centre and the vibrant Queen's Quarter, it's a versatile, lively entertainment venue with the charm of a traditional Irish pub. Behind the unassuming street façade lies a grand total of four bars, two roof gardens, a street-level beer garden, an independent off licence and Northern Ireland's largest pool room. All of our bars offer something different - whether it be exciting club nights, live music, comedy, live sport or free entertainment, Lavery's offers something for everyone: The Public Bar The perfect place to relax by the fire with a quiet pint or catch up with friends, the Public Bar is the traditional heart of Lavery's, and home to our many loyal customers from the city centre and beyond. The Back Bar & Beer Garden The Back Bar has taken on legendary status for its focus on great music and unpretentious good times. There is free entertainment seven nights a week, with live gigs from the hottest new bands and our ever-popular open mic night, The Living Room. Mister Tom's Lounge At weekends our first floor venue Mister Tom's is an exciting nightclub venue. It's also home to Lavery's Comedy Club, featuring the best comedians in Northern Ireland and beyond, and it's available too as a stylish and comfortable room for private functions. The Pool Room and Roof Terraces On our top floor is Northern Ireland's largest pool room, with 22 pool tables and full bar facilities. The pool room opens out onto our two open-air roof terraces, and there is free DJ entertainment seven days a week. Every Saturday night, the pool room is transformed into our hugely popular alternative club, Beat Connection - dazzling lights and visuals and a thrilling soundtrack of electronica, hip-hop and house. The Woodworkers The Woodworkers is Belfast's new social bar and rotating tap room. We're proud to offer the best craft beers from around the world on our six rotating taps, plus an array of delicious cocktails, quality spirits, wine and more. It's heaven for beer aficionados, with a brand new offering every week plus regular free tap takeovers from the most exciting independent brewers around, and all set to a carefully curated playlist, plus DJs from Thursday to Saturday. Lavery's Independent Off Licence Our off sales is nestled between the Public Bar and The Woodworkers and open seven days a week with an extensive range of craft beer, ale, lager, cider, wine and spirits - not to mention exclusive Lavery's merchandise! Food Food is available in all of our bars from noon to 10pm (12.30pm-10pm on Sunday), featuring traditional Irish cuisine, light bites and a fine array of contemporary fare - all made using fresh ingredients sourced in Northern Ireland. We are happy to meet all dietary requirements, and we are proud of our specially selected gluten-free menu. Group bookings are welcome. Lavery's has a food hygiene rating of five stars. Sport Lavery's is the number one venue for live sport in Belfast, with HD screens throughout the building offering live coverage of football, rugby, golf, darts, racing, cricket, tennis, F1, NFL and more on request. We have close relationships with Ulster Rugby, Belfast Giants ice hockey team and the Northern Ireland national football team, and we're delighted to welcome fans of each to support their teams at Lavery's. We are also proud sponsors of Queen's University football and volleyball clubs, and Belfast Roller Derby. Room Hire and Function Rooms We would be delighted to host your weddings, parties, pool parties and private functions, or book ahead to reserve a table for private dining.

Just want... More

Had an excellent pasta seafood dish - only one small criticism- a finger bowl would have been very useful after negotiating the superb prawns. Very reasonably priced

Stopped in with some friends for a drink on Friday after work. It was still quiet, so it was enjoyable. We sat on the terrace and enjoyed the nice weather. Good specials on whiskey and gin. Look forward to going back and seeing it in a more lively state.

This is an extremely large bar with plenty of little drinking/watering holes to visit. Very modern with a hint of Americanfied in my opinion but not in a bad way. There were plenty of seating in the bar areas and in the pool room where there are many table to play on, my only issue would be pricing of alcohol... More

We stopped here the night we arrived in Belfast and were so impressed we returned the next night. Everything we ordered off the menu was fantastic and the staff were wonderful. I would highly recommend this establishment if you are in the University area!

This place is great for a game of pool and a few beers during the week and a night out on a Saturday. The drinks are a little overpriced however their beer of the month deals are pretty good! And the food here is delicious :) I would definitely recommend laverys! Fab!

Has everything you need under 1 roof, good drinks, great smoking area, pool upstairs and multiple TVs covering a wide range of sport, you could spent your whole evening and night here and not have to go anywhere else!!
