Its an interesting old building and one you feel you should visit however the bar is understaffed and the stress shows on the barstaff. I stood for 10 minutes clearly being ignored and had to move up the bar to the other member of staff before i could get served, I saw this happen to others also, I can appreciate... More

a must visit if you are in Belfast really friendly staff and the interior of the pub is a site to see if you can get yourself a booth all the better but if not just stand at the bar and take in the original décor and the atmosphere

People complain about the prices but I found them very reasonable. Too bust to chat to staff but they were friendly and efficient. The food looked excellent.

...so allow plenty of time for lunch. The building itself is a majestic gem from the Victorian age with tile floors and ornate décor, particularly on the first floor. We ate on the second floor, as the bar fills up quickly. Venison pie (13.50 GBP) was excellent, but service was VERY slow. Waitress was apologetic and said that the kitchen... More

Visited Belfast with a big group and we popped into the crown on a Saturday afternoon. We were lucky to get a booth and all managed to get in. Nice pub. All very friendly

NT owned, but operated like a normal pub/cafe, this place is anything but normal, thick with old-fashioned decoration and atmosphere. If you are in before the rush-hours you might get a seat in one of the rather private table booths, surrounded by geogeous carved mahogany, and deep-sculpted Victorian tiles, else you can always sit at the long bar and admire...

What a fantastic little public house! We loved the little private booths, the ornate windows and the beautifully tiled floor! Would definitely visit again

Great bar, with such character.... Must have a drink to enjoy the great sitting area thatnis a enclosed booth with seats for a private setting. Tried to have dinner there but they were closed for a special party.

We had delicious food upstairs, but the service was awful. So, if you don't mind being treated poorly, enjoy the food!

The Crown Liquor Saloon is literally a jewel in the crown of the Belfast tourist circuit. I've known it for years and have enjoyed many a pint in its Victorian opulence. However I was disappointed with the quality of service. I took an old friend from Cork there, convinced that he would enjoy the atmosphere and experience. Regrettably there appeared... More
