As advertised, wonderful atmosphere, beautiful stained glass and lovely carved wood booths. And once we scored a booth, a lovely couple asked to join us, revealing that he is a violinist with the Ulster orchestra and she is a psychologist working in the public sector. So we spent too much time and drank too many drinks, and had a wonderful... More

Positioned only a five min walk from City Hall is this unique amazing pub. The outside is stunning full of character. You might struggle to get in because of the crowds taking photos. We were lucky to find a booth for just our group. Your imagination could run wild as you think of all the history in there. Including the... More

My sister and I were in Belfast recently. I liked the sound of this place from the description in the guide book so off we went. It was a Tuesday evening and fairly busy. Yes it is very nice with all the book says, - Victorian but oh dear me there is nothing Victorian about the prices. £11 for two... More

We visited the Crown Bar on recommendation from a friend, and were not disappointed. The Guinness is not rushed, and with a shamrock on the top! Very elegantly decorated, although we did not get to use a booth, as as very busy. Staff were friendly but not overcompensating for tourists. Drinks were slightly expensive, you don't get much change from... More

Beautiful and historic. We started with Guinness and followed with a steak and Guinness pie. The portion was huge and the pie was out of this world. The pastry was flaky and melt in your mouth. Loved being in the private booth with friends and never felt rushed out because someone was waiting for your seat. A must visit place... More

My mom & I visited The Crown Bar on July 18th while on tour of Belfast. We waited over an hour for our food; others who had ordered after us received their food. Ended up asking for our money back because we needed to board the tour bus.

My girlfriend and I visited here while exploring Belfast. The decor of this olde-worlde bar is unlike anywhere I have had a drink before and definitely worth a visit. The local drinks were tasty, I didn't try the food. The bar was very busy when we visited so unfortunately we could not get a booth. There was a steady flow... More
