This was a beautiful place and apparently iconic in Belfast, but when I was there anyway, there wasn't too much going on.

We were lucky to get a booth which was very quaint. The red wine wasn't great and the toilet facilities were horrible. However, the Guinness was good and it was nice to see an old pub in all it's glory. Perhaps the problem is there's loads in better nick with better booze in London. I am glad we went.

Was last here about 4 years ago and loved it then. Made a special journey on way to airport for a spot of lunch. Same waitress who is very polite. The Irish stew was lovely, though very different from the last time, but still enjoyable. The food took some time to arrive, but was well worth it. The food in... More

This is a well known tourist attraction in Belfast. It's located directly across from the Europa Hotel. The decor is very old world with a wonderful old ceiling and enclosed booths. The service is hit and miss with a not so friendly staff. The food was okay. It's worth a trip in for a drink and to take pictures.

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!
