When in Belfast step back in time and visit the oldest bar in the city hidden in a alleyway, this great old bar has atmosphere and good Guinness , it serves food , great out side seating for the smoker and pleasant staff , you can just picture the drunken sailors in the past singing , as the ships used...

Another beautiful Belfast pub deserving of its tourist trail status.When I called a young man was playing the guitar the drink was good the conversation buzzing.Pub experience perfection personified. Call in you owe it to yourself you've been good all year.

A small hamely pub hidden in one of Belfast entries. The food here is excellent and we'll priced, complementing a bar that serves up a fine selection of beers and spirits from local breweries as well as large multinationals. People complain that it's a bit dark but I think that is part of its charm, along with the many quaint... More

The four of us had lunch here. I had the Bangers and mash which were honey and mustard sausage with mash and onion gravy. Our friends had the Grilled macaroni and cheese which was tasty. Both were excellent. The place is a little dark but the atmosphere is interesting. There are paintings on the wall typical of old times. It... More

Advised by a local to go to Whites, the oldest Befast Pub. Authentic building and old memorabilia. With a fire going in the fireplace it was a cozy stop for typical Irish food that was both tasty and plentiful. Staff was pleasant and efficient. Interesting and enjoyable find in the middle of the city.

An old tavern full of history. A great big open fire and dimly lit with candles. Good atmosphere and decent food. Good place for lunch or a quiet drink. Feels like a country pub. Not a great selection of beers on tap but some good bottled beer. Good for visitors/tourists.

We are 2 couples traveling through Ireland on an 8 day escorted tour of Northern Ireland and a 15 day self driving tour of the Republic. While in Belfast, we had an "on your own" evening from the escorted tour and wanted an old tavern/pub experience. Using the Frommers website we noted the recommendation of White's Tavern, a 300 year... More

We researched this place and found the menu online to be very attractive. Getting there however, the menu has changed and there are no classic Irish meals any longer. Just sandwiches and mac and cheese. And at above average prices. We were looking for typical pub lunch. Luckily we suspected this by reading previous posts. Very disappointing because it has... More

Hogweed is from Belfast originally but, despite living there for the first half of my life, I'd never visited White’s. I guess it isn’t really a young persons’ kind of place. The first thing I'd say about it is that it’s immensely characterful. Built in 1630 apparently, making it almost as old as me, it’s very dark inside, open fire... More
