Superb decor, like going back in time, very professional staff, excellent service, great range of of everything to drink, bar snacks available ( I had calamari with mayo, unusual presentation but absolutely no problem with it). The windows and drinking booths alone are worth going to see. Don't miss it

This has to be the best pub I have been in whilst in Ireland. Such a hidden little jem in Belfast, electric ambiance fantastic choice of fine ales and beers, wines and spirits too. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable and food was amazing and honestly priced. Fantastic pub and fantastic city

Well worth a visit to sample a bygone age. Centrally placed opposite the Europa Hotel, no trip to Belfast is complete with out a visit. If you have only time to visit one pub, make it this one. Can be very busy and crowded at times, All adds to the atmosphere and experience. Can't comment on food didm't east there.

Located just a short walk behind the city hall, opposite the Europa hotel and Europa bus station is this beautiful old irish pub with booths like the old saloons to sit in, the architecture is stunning and the bar has a great atmosphere.

Great place to round off a days sight seeing, with a few drinks and a bite to eat. Really is a step back in time, gas lighting, mosaic tiling, private snugs. You feel the history of the place.

The pub is nice inside, old architecture etc and looked after very well. The seating areas/booth areas are cool like old saloons. It did take a long time to be served and the bar wasn't busy at all, drinks prices were higher than other places we'd been to in Belfast earlier in the day. Also a very rude barman kept... More

This beautifully restored Victorian pub is a must see stop for a drink in Belfasr. Nowhere else in the British Isles comes close to giving you an almost perfect experience of 19th century pub life. Experience it and the Grand Opera House for a trip back in time.
