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

Went here as a second choice and was pleased and surprised at quality of food and service. Warm and welcoming with a wide choice on the menu and the wine list was comprehensive and also reasonably priced for centre of Belfast. Only complaint was that vegetables were few and the drizzle ( maybe more a squiggly squirt ) of pink... More

My husband and I went to the Whig for lunch today. The doors opened at 1200 and it quickly filled up with a few office party groups and other casual diners. Our server, Lisa, quickly brought our drinks and took our order. We shared pâté and toast for starter - delicious with little red-currants. For main I had crispy haddock... More
