It's hard to resist a visit to the crown when in Belfast but as usual I left wondering why I had gone there in the first place.the bar has a good history about it and still features the snugs for enjoying a private drink.the pints are over priced and often badly poured and the local charm has gone... read more

Lovely though it is, it is just a bar. If you are lucky enough to get a booth for the evening you are ok. Otherwise it is one heck of a squeeze. It serves beer and other fine booze but nothing to write home about.

We went here on a whim on a Friday evening, hoping for some food we were in doubt as it was so busy. We managed to get a 'snug' and enjoyed some lovely food washed down with plenty of Guinness! Beautiful features fully restored made us feel like we had stepped back in time! A must visit!!

I love this pub even it's just to look at the decor. It is a National Trust property and the workmanship is awesome although it continues to function as a working pub. The lights are the original gas lights! The tiles are amazing. The food and beer are tasty and definitely worth a visit. And there's always a few locals... More

One of the oldest but also most characterful pubs in Belfast. It looks fantastic, great stained glass windows, wooden carvings, and the original booths which we were lucky enough to find a seat in on a Friday afternoon. The bonus is that the Guinness is good and the bar snacks were excellent, had the best fries with a sandwich ever!... More

JUST RUDE BEYOND BELIEF! The manager and the staff were so rude to myself and my Mum that we actually had to leave the bar due to the terrible lack of customer service. The barman was so aggressive in his approach it made my Mum feel quite shaken. I have travelled all around the world and never have I come... More

Beautiful restored Bar, across from the Europa Hotel. Great place to meet friends or be solo. Has some tables but these are harder to come by. A must visit even for a pint.
