Best breakfast in Belfast

Been coming here for ages. They stopped doing breakfast for a while but back at it again. It's literally the best in Belfast. Great value. Located beside St George market so brilliant spot to hit before the market. Has a lot of history and full of locals. A must do in Belfast

Great pub with a few 'characters' in there. Internal architecture is very nice and Guinness is great. Certainly worth a visit....

Went there with friend for a pint of Guinness. This is an unadulterated Irish pub, with all the good feelings.

Had the pleasure of eating what I now know is the best Seafood Chowder in Belfast! No potatoes, just fresh seafood and cream. A genuine bowl of happiness. San Francisco has some culinary competition
