This bar is a cracking place, full of atmosphere and laughter. Don't miss an opportunity to go in and have a drink in one of the enclosed booths. It's brilliant

It is historic. It is a beautiful pub. The service runs from non-existent to surely. The food is mediocre. The drinks are no better than a less expensive venue. But hey, we can say we were there!

This bar is very unique and a fascinating place to visit due to its unusual decor. It is very busy and extremely lively and the night we went there was a great band playing. We also ate in the restaurant and the food was lovely although by the time we ate (table booked for 8pm). There was a whole section... More

Still yet to dine here but ALWAYS make sure we grab a beer here. Absolute Victorian gem with buckets of history. Great for tourists but the warm welcome means it's great for regulars as well. If you in the area you must drop it. Highly recommend.

The atmosphere here takes you back into history! However, the service and quality in this establishment make a visit a perfect combination of the old and the new. Don't miss it!

Out bus tour driver recommend the Crown when we stopped in Belfast on our way back to Dublin. We had a pint and enjoyed the private wooden booths. It was mid-afternoon, so the place was not too busy, but it was starting to fill up when we left. If we're ever in Belfast again, we'll definitely stop by again.

We were in Belfast for a couple days so we just had to stop by this legendary pub. We walked in and it was packed on a Tuesday night. We finally managed to get one of the beautiful wooden and very private booths. There are no cocktail waitresses or waiters, so you have to get up to the bar to... More

This is still the benchmark for Belfast pubs - a perfectly preserved Victorian gem. I am glad to report that since my last visit they have greatly expanded their choice of beers and they now have a fair selection of local microbrews (and a few not so local - Doom Bar!). The clientele is still the interesting mix of disheveled... More

I love the Crown Liquor Saloon - it's one of the best pubs in Northern Ireland, if not Ireland. The interior decor is stunning, the beer on tap is always to a good standard and the craic is great. You always meet some characters here and the staff despite being busy, work hard and chat away to you.
