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!

For me there's nothing better than a bar with activities, the pool bar in Laverys delivers. There must be going on two dozen tables and they are surprising playable; you can generate serious spin and there's no roll that you can notice. The cost of playing is good, the beer is good but it would be nice to half craft... More

Hi Phil, Thanks for the lovely review. Just to let you know for future reference we have a craft beer bar (a recent addition downstairs called The Woodworkers) - accessible from The Pool Room where you can purchase a selection of craft beers from our rotating taps. We hope to bring the rest of the bar into line in terms... More

Great mix of people of all ages and types. Staff are everywhere and professional, always easy to get served fast. New woodworkers bar adds a more trendy side to it and the extended alley bar is a great place for everyone to mix. A great relaxed local where you can go play pool, watch a match, get some surprisingly great... More

I used to love laverys but it seems to have went down hill. Their st Patricks day was miserable compared to the festivities of the years past. Djs are miserable and picky on which music they play ( used to be a great diversity of music) and the whole place seems to have lost its atmosphere. Also staff not as... More

Avoid like the plague, complete dump. Don't waste ur money.

Hi Michael, Our door security have the difficult job of enforcing a strict door policy set by us every night. Sometimes admittedly we get it wrong, but judging by your Facebook message, language in said Facebook message & Tripadvisor review 'Dump' the security may have had genuine grounds to refuse your entry. Furthermore I don't believe you're fit to make... More

Had dinner here with friends as part of a short stay in Belfast. It was recommended by a cabbie for a lively place to have a drink and watch the football. Our server was great, no request was too difficult. Food was immensely satisfying and great value. I had the languistines for starter followed by ribs and pulled pork. Total... More

Best night out in Belfast. Diverse crowd, plenty of selection behind the bar as well as an eclectic mix of music. Perfect.
