“Scrumptious- Always hits the spot!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

We have eaten lunch in the John Hewitt Bar many times over the years and have never had a bad meal. The food is always delicious. Service is fast and efficient which suits people who are out for a quick lunch from work. My favourite of chicken gougons with rice and spicy veg was off the menu today so I ordered what the friendly waitress recommended- Tandoori marinated chicken breast, cumin potatoes and garlic vegetables. Well, it was fabulous! Highly recommended. In too much of a rush today for coffee which was a pity as their coffee is great too.

“Fabulous beer, food, atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014 via mobile

The best pub in Belfast IMO. Great range of beers (and other victuals!). Un-fussy but really good grub and the atmosphere and spirit of the place envelopes you!
