Nice spot of lunch

We had lunch at the belfray whilst traveling to belfast. The staff were very accommodating. We wanted a Sunday dinner and the carvery had just finish. They said no problem and served us a lovely meal.

Sunday lunch with family was rather hit and miss., great service but food was not up to scratch, maybe as they were nearing the end of service, everything seemed quite dried up.

The staff here are excellent and the food is too. We had dinner as a group of four friends and really enjoyed our evening. A special mention for Katrina who served us.

Had a big celebratory gathering. The welcome was lovely. The event well organised and the food was delicious. I was impressed that waiting staff wore white cotton Ives when serving. Good hygiene was very obvious. Will certainly visit again.

The belfray offers great food but can be a bit pricey when compared to other restaurants of similar standards. That said the ambience is great , food is good and service very friendly and personal. Menu offers good choice also.

Been a few times for Sunday carvery. We ate in the ballroom, it has a lovely atmosphere and an excellent pianist was playing which really added to the great atmosphere. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and great portions. I would definitely recommend carvery in the ballroom

Top marks yet again to the Belfray for another great visit. They never fail to disappoint with their attentive, friendly service and top notch food. Today we were celebrating a christening, there were 24 of us plus 3 young children for their Sunday Carvery which was delish - you definitely won't go hungry, i still haven't managed to eat anything...
