We are regular visitors to whites tavern, we went yesterday sat 1st march for the usual 2 course lunch for 2 and wine for 25 pound and love the live music only to be informed it has changed ownership and no live music and the menu had changed, the variety of choice was disappointing and pricey for things on offer....

Toilets very clean and we where told were only renovated recently, We had a great late lunch. Soup and stew starter for myself and my wife followed by delicious poached fish... More

I was in Whites last Saturday (14 December) for a couple of hours. I bought a round of drinks for myself and my friends, and when I brought them back to our table, realised that what I thought was two pints of Magners was actually two pints of Carlsberg. I brought the two pints back to the bar, politely said... More

Every time I go here I feel like I'm about to get into a fight with a pirate. It's not rough or anything, but it just reminds me of one of those old pubs from the 1800's or Mrs Miggin's pie shop or something. It's small (or cosy if you think that's a real word), pleasant and serves alcohol.

We dropped by after our bus tour and was a lovely place to warm up, open fire and great food and drinks. Friendly staff, but like most pubs, nothing special apart from its history. There was a good singer that started as we were leaving, good atmosphere.

Dating back to 1630, Whites Tavern is located down a small alleyway. It's well worth a visit whilst in Belfast.

I can't say anything bad about White's Tavern. It's a cozy pub with an open fire serving comfort dishes like Guinness and steak pie and an excellent seafood chowder. The waitress was lovely, I was looking for a place to meet a tour the next day and asked if she knew where it was. As I was walking out she... More

This c.1630, the oldest pub in Belfast, is great. A fire burning in the hearth, a Guinness and a good seafood chowder greeted us on a cold day. The service was excellent, the prices reasonable and the atmosphere purely Belfast. Be sure and go before 6 PM and food service is discontinued.
