Slow service and overpriced.

Called in to try out the bar for a drink after eating at a nearby restaurant. Just as well we weren't thirsty as after waiting about 20 mins my husband then went and stood at the bar for a further 10 mins before getting served! I should say the bar wasn't busy - there just wasnt a barman to be... read more

I have visited this bar many times over the past year or two to meet customers& collegues who are staying in the hotel. On each occasion the service at the bar has been noteably bad!! It is a real let down for such a good hotel. Staff are extremely glum and ignore you when standing right in front of them,... More

We ate here one night. It was not really busy. Loads of staff on but they didn't seem to be doing anything. It took ages for the food to arrive but when it did, it was good. Even ordering a drink at the counter was a chore.

The BFM and significant other decided to go to the bar at the Fitzwilliam Bar for a cup of tea one cold Saturday afternoon in February last. Great Victoria Street Belfast BT2 7BQ 028 9031 1588 The surroundings were superb and the staff very friendly. We did not have to wait for any length of time either to be seated,... More

As guests in the hotel we decided not to brave a winter's night and go to the hotel bar. It lacked atmosphere and served really poor Guinness. Should be a lot better.

Purchased a living social voucher for afternoon tea as a treat for mum and I and, I can say it was just average. I have been to many places in Belfast for afternoon tea so I have a lot to compare it with. The food itself was ok, nothing exciting, in fact it looked pretty boring! I didn't even take... More

I took my girlfriend here as a treat for a night as got a great offer on Bed, Breakfast & 3 Course Evening Meal, on a Friday night. From the moment we checked in we felt welcomed. The check in process was quick and painless. I had booked a Superior room which was absolutely fantastic, a very very modern look... More

Ridiculously long wait to get our food even though the pub was barely half full. We were given every excuse in the book. Finally, we were told the pub shared a kitchen with the restaurant, which was very busy. Forty-five minutes to wait for food is simply unacceptful, regardless of the reason. And the food was only good, not great.... More
