Really like the oldie worldie feel of the pub

We went to the Crown with some business acquaintances after work. It was packed and was very lively even though the weather was very changeable and poor outside. Love the atmosphere in there! If visiting Belfast, it's a must!

What a fantastic place and a 'must go' whenever I visit Belfast. This pub is preserved from the 1800's and is a real experience. Always busy but with plenty of staff you'll be quickly and expertly served. Don't miss it.

Heard about this place but all we could do was stop in for a pint on a Friday afternoon. The place as packed but people were generally friendly. It was an experience just to have a drink here and would recommend it if for no other reason than it is an experience!

This is a superb venue to take friends and visitors alike for a bit of craic and a tipple or two. This Gin Palace is now owned and run by the National Trust. Its an extremely fine specimen full of character and an interesting history.I love the booths! It survived 'the troubles' and remains a great attraction and well worth... More

The Crown Liquor Saloon is a unique site where architecture and detailed decor are blended with wonderful staff (Maggie's a treat!) and where tasty fish and chips are topped off with Guinness , of course! I was overwhelmed with the interior decor of the Crown. It's a spectacular spot to visit any time of the day. The location in the... More

It is definitely worth a visit... you can just imagine some of what must have gone on here back in the day. Good food, good Guiness, but not a destination point.

We visited this pub/restaurant to celebrate a birthday during our weekend in Belfast. It had been recommended to us by a work colleague..........How disappointing! We waited for over an hour for our food which was semi warm when it arrived. Dreadful service with two poor bar staff trying to take food orders, serve drinks & wait on tables! Management need...

A great place to have a drink at standard charges. The tables have doors to the cubicles. The decoration is so ornate and worth just going in to see. Mostly tourists in but that did not detract from the ambiance. Heartily recommend.

We love to stop at the Crown Liquor Saloon on any visit to Belfast and soak in the historic atmosphere and wonderful ambiance. This place is well worth a visit. However we have been here twice for dinners and both times left really disappointed. We thought the first negative dining experience might have been an off night and so we... More

Just popped in for a quick pre dinner drink on Friday early evening. It was packed but great atmosphere and less busy than when we poked our heads round the door bang on the Friday lunch rush. If our short stay in Belfast allows we'll be back to appreciate in a quieter hour the decor and booth seating that make... More
