After a lukewarm Irish stew, which needed to be returned, the final dish was well worth the wait. Lovely bar and well worth the visit. Cracking!

This really is a must-see when visiting Belfast. The decor is just out of this world, you can't help but be amazed by the craftsmanship.They really don't make pubs like that any more.

What an amazing place. You can enjoy this trip back in time and enjoy real ale. We visited three times as it was such a great place to hang out. We met some interesting people, and on our last visit tried the dining room on the first floor. It is not very big and the main room is quite regularly... More

Iconic bar. Went in alone and necked a Bushmills. Very pleasant. Is £3.50 a lot? I thought it was pretty cheap. Go.

A trip back in time to the 19th century when the Crown was a popular rendezvous. Experience genuine Irish friendliness and great food. Try Champ!

I have taken visitors to the Crown bar on many occasions and, whether they are English, American or European they have all said that the Crown was a highlight of their visit - many have also returned to mop up more of the atmosphere of this fine gas-lit pub with its traditional private snugs. The service in the Crown is... More
