Great atmosphere, love the shape of the bar especially if you're lucky enough to get a booth. Drinks certainly are not cheap but for the building, the location and the history of the pub it's more than worth it. Would recommend to all.

What a historically stunning building with a breathtaking interior. Belfast is well behind Dublin in the visitor stakes, but if this was in Dublin's Temple Bar then it would be acclaimed as Ireland's best pub and would be crammed with tourists. The fact that it is in Belfast and is full of locals makes it even more attractive. Unbelievably the... More

This bar is very worth a visit purely to see the decoration both inside and outside the building. Tiles and fantastic woodwork make a surrounding that leaves you standing with mouth ajar. Service however not particularly friendly which was the exception rather than the rule during our visit to Belfast.

Very historical, nice booths (with doors!) and great beer. The pub is very nice to look at whilst sipping your Guinness!

They have most any beverage you could want and you get to enjoy it with new friends or in your own private booth. Great fun with the friendly barkeep.

The Crown is regarded as one of Belfast's landmark buildings for good reason. The ornate decor, intricate mosaic floor tiling, gas lighting and several semi-private booths make this place well with a visit. Other reviews have complained about poor service and cited the fact that there was only one person behind the bar - this is a proper Irish pub,... More

This is a fabulous pub, very quirky and historic. Some say it's expensive but it is not too bad and certainly worth the price of a pint of Guiness to savour the decor or enjoy one of the private booths. Give it ago......

This is seen as a 'must visit' stop on the Belfast tour. It certainly is an interesting building indicative of the 'old Belfast'. I would recommend one goes in, have a look around and leave. Whilst there was a good range of ales, the service was poor. One person behind the bar was clearly insufficient. When eventually served, the batman... More
