We all had something different and it was all good. The staff could not do enough for you and the service was great. The bar staff... More

Good atmosphere in this pub. Met some of the ulster rugby team here. Sells nice beers and is warm and welcoming. Nice clientele in what is a great part of Belfast

Food, drink, staff and service - all superior!! What a great recommendation from the local port pilot. The John Hewitt is frequented by locals and was outstanding in all regards. And, fast/free wifi.

Excellent food at more than reasonable prices. You would pay double anywhere else for what you're served here. Have had shark fillet/seabass/swordfish at different times at the John hewitt and always is priced £10 or less. Lovely relaxed atmosphere also, perfect for a lazy weekday off without breaking the bank!

A real ale pub in the city centre offering a good range of meals and, in particular, fish dishes. These are not the cheapest but the servings are most generous and of excellent quality.

Travel to Belfast from London 6 times a year and always head here for lunch.

Menu is good without being fussy the portions are ample... More
