Visited twice on the 20th August. The second visit was later in the evening, atmosphere was really good. Asked at the bar for a round of drinks, but was told that the bar had closed which is fine, only for someone to come to the bar 5 minutes after me ask for drinks, the same person who told me it...

The oldest bar in Belfast. Great bar with a very knowledgable staff. Pretty good Whiskey and beer selection (Get the Belfast Black if you want a change from Guinness). Wanted fish and chips, however that was not available for dinner (it was available for the lunch menu). The dinner part of the restaurant was a bit more upscale than I... More

We popped into McHughs because I needed I McPee. What a great find. The staff were really knowledgable about all the ales and spirits. I tried Jameson's Caskmate that was matured in stout barrels absolutely lovely. Belfast stout was a lighter alternative to Guinnes. Definitely with going their on purpose if you into your ales etc.

Spent an hour for a few drinks there recently it was very quiet and I enjoyed my pints although a bit expensive. The management need to check the downstairs disabled toilet it was a disgrace. I as a local was appalled I dread to think what the tourists must say. This very well known pub restaurant is in an area... More

I am less than usual in downtown Belfast and was pleasantly surprised to have time on my hands and be near this old well established hostelry and had their Atlantic Chowder with wheaten bread washed down with glorious Stout and finished with Belfast Cream Slice a delicacy I had not had before. Excellent service in a busy venue and delightful... More

300 years old pub within walkable distance of the Titanic exhibition. We were starving and not disappointed. Friendly and efficient service and a good choice for lunch. Most enjoyable. Well priced. Ate in the bar. There is a restaurant.
