Lovely spot.

A piece of history - an ornate gem from the Victorian era. Getting a decent pint of beer (rather than lager or Guinness) in Belfast can be hard work but the Crown serves a good range. It is prone to busloads of tourists arriving at regular intervals...

The inside of this place is spectacular with all the original features & the little booths, we decided to eat in the restaurant, it's a bit overpriced for what you get, we had the fish & chips, the tartar sauce already comes on your plate with the chips in it, as my Husband dislikes it he was instantly put off,...

It's a neat bit of history to experience, but it'll hit you in the pocket! Very ornate interior with unique wooden carvings. I enjoyed it, but regret buying a meal due to the prices.

Great wee saloon, but very disappointed in the service. Must see sight and if you manage to sit in a booth it's very impressive. Toilets are as old and impressive as the bar.

The building was amazing. Went on a girls weekend and got a booth for the 10 of us and we had a wonderful afternoon. Food is very expensive. Can get better for cheaper in other pubs but they wouldn't give you the unique decor

Loved the downstairs bar area with its distinctive decor and cute "snugs". We ate upstairs and were disappointed. Service was incredibly slow and the food was not good. Better to stick to the pub.

The Bar is definitely work a try. Walk through at the very least to see the unusual enclosed Victorian booths. The Dining room upstairs had comfort food that was tasty. The wait staff did not seem to communicate well. One told us we would have to wait for an hour, where the next server seated us immediately. I guess they... More

Would definately recommend a stop off for a guinness, we managed to get a booth which was great, but we were lucky it does get quite busy.

The detail--- walls, ceiling, woodwork, etc-- is worth walking in. I didn't eat (tried, but it was full... apparently it gets booked up- make a reservation!) but I did have a drink and admire the Victorian decor. Don't miss it.

Came here on a recommendation and glad we did! Lovely decor and managed to nab a booth! Pleasant staff in a busy but not crowed popular bar!
