We've been to belfast on a 2days tour and at the end of our first day in the city decided to have a pint. This pub is SO popular that it's even mentioned on the maps from the visitor's centre.

It is like stepping back in time. The bar is a sanctuary of peace in Belfast's busy shopping centre. Frequented by tourists and locals and usually gets busy. But very disappointed by the graffiti in the booths, what kind of imbecile would feel the need to scratch his name into Victorian woodwork! Sort it out national trust! Put in CCTV,... More

We called in here from a recommendation by a work college, it is a beautiful old pub. We didn't eat here because the food was not being served straight away. It was a nice experience and I wish more pubs were left alone with their characteristics.

Dinner in a snug with a correctly pulled Guinness capped a wonderful day. Beautiful building, with carved wood, tooled metal ceiling and stained glass windows. Excellent food and prompt services, but let you stay as long as you wished. We went back twice as it has so much atmosphere!

Stunning interior at the bar, a great atmosphere for drinks. The dining rooms upstairs were lovely. Separate from the bar so a family could have a meal there away from the bar. Good menu, with GLUTEN FREE options. Main courses all fantastic, desserts nothing special but still good traditional Irish food which was lovely. Would certainly go again for a... More

Having mentioned to a few friends we were visiting Belfast, we were ordered to visit The Crown. Totally blown away by the architecture and the glass windows. Beers were good and the staff were friendly. If, for no other reason, you must visit to take in the decor and atmosphere

Visited this place Monday for lunch. Loved it. Before visiting Belfast have read about this place as one of the must see places in Belfast. Definitely worth it. We payed £9.50 each for a burger with fries and a pint with it each. Was really great. At first I thought the portion of food was a little small but then... More

You cannot be wowed by the place beautiful architecture, little booths to sit with friends, carved ceiling and breathtaking windows my only criticism is not enough seating. Gold selection of drinks and staff were nice (not amazing but still friendly) definitely worth a look if your close. Real character.

Visited the upstairs restaurant at this famous Victorian pub ( which is owned by the National Trust ) twice as we enjoyed the food and ambiance here.Downstairs are attractive booth areas and on both our visits the place was very busy with scarcely a seat to be found.Reservations for the restaurant are recommended where there is a good atmosphere and...
