Cozy Pub in Central Belfast

This pub is an easy walk from all the sights of Belfast. We were warmly greeted and quickly got a drink as we sat down for dinner. Wonderful beer selection., Plenty of atmosphere and locals in for a drink. Risotto with a grilled chicken breast was very good. Excellent fish and chips. Our... read more

We entered via bar with our two boys and considered leaving as it looked a bit crowded. The barman told us that there were tables in the other room and we got a great table for the four of us. We ordered from the £8.95 main and drink deal and me and hubby had chilli (real chunks of steak not... More

I am literally sitting in the Gartick as I type this review. The staff are friendly and attentive and the food is amazing! Hubby had a burger and I ordered the pie of the day. We are both more than satisfied. Prices are reasonable for a good meal. This is the best pub we've eaten at so far.

Stopped in here by chance for food and drinks . Rugby was on so the place was heaving. Defo worth eating here if you can get a table. Served pub grub but the standard was well above average and was delicious. Had a chicken dish with an Asian fusion salad, even their chips were a bit special and yummy. Would... More

A nice pub to go to for drinks. We went there with relatives on a Saturday night. It was busy but not too crowded. A nice atmosphere. Pub located in the city center of Belfast.

Like the title says. Awful food. Risotto is dry and bland. Wedges are blasted to within an inch of their lives. Also dry and bland. Awful awful awful. If you want food avoid like the plague. However the only saving grace is the really good service.

I've had a long day. I moved to Belfast City centre lately and went for a pint. The food smelt great so I ordered the risotto. Eat every pick. The garlic bread was just tasty. Service with a smile and a Prague beer. I will be back.
