“Great food, lots of character”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

Great, good value, homely food, in a characterful Belfast city centre bar, but get there early for lunch on a working day.

“Possibly named after the "Garrick Club", a fashionable London Club”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

Have been here a few times, but generally when it's packed, so it was nice to call in a couple of weeks back, when it wasn't so busy. It a lovely looking bar, with a nice crowd, with a trendier bunch out back. However, I have read a few reviews, which mentioned that the staff were rude, and I have to admit, that they weren't the friendliest. I took a few photos, and the look I got from a couple of them spoke volumes. There was a young girl working there, and she was the friendliest of them all.

Apart from that, I enjoyed my stay. I had a drink in front first, got chatting to a man next to me, and then went out back, to have a gawk. There was a big screen tv on showing the football, with a livelier crowd, but they all seemed very respectable, and everybody seemed to be enjoying themselves.
