Called in on Sunday night for drinks, great cocktail promo on between 5-9 £4 cocktails!! Tried a few of them and were gorgeous! Fallen angel being my favourite! We sat at the window at the beginning of the night but lacked atmosphere as there wasn't many people around us so moved up to the bar stools and was far better.... More

We popped in here for food and rolled out the door when it closed at 2am!!! The cocktails, food, singer then DJ (DJ Phlip) were all FANTASTIC!!! Brilliant place, loved it! The only downside was that when table service stopped and we had to go to the bar, the service behind the bar was appallingly slow!! It took about 35... More

My boyfriend and I visited here on Christmas Eve for some lunch while finishing up shopping for the big day. It was quite busy and mixed with the nice Christmas decor and cheerful tunes provided a great atmosphere for the holidays.

We went there on advice from another pub which was full. We had a short wait to be seated and the service was excellent and our food came very quickly. Each course was delicious and arrived piping hot. There was a varied wine list with good selection to suit all pockets. Would recommend this pub/restaurant

You get used to Belfast restaurants and bars being pleasant places to eat and drink so when we called in yesterday we expected the same sort of thing. We stood at the "Wait here to be seated" sign for so long without being acknowledged by any of the staff (Who all clocked us) that we were beginning to think we... More
