Worst service of any establishment visited
Dec 2019 • Friends
The food seemed to be OK at best... nothing to rave about, however, the attitude of the dark haired staff member was appalling. She snapped at two of our diners and then brought a meal replacement and practically threw the plate at the customer. ..the replacement meal was re-served on the same plate as the first meal with the food having been scrapped off...obviously in a fit of temper. When I spend my money I am prepared for food to be OK unless I am in a higher end establishment..but in All cases I expect the service/front of house to make it special and encourage me to return. I will not be in The John Hewitt again as will none of my party. It was disgraceful behaviour from the staff member.

Best pub experience in Belfast
Jan 2020
Visited Saturday evening approx.6 pm...great music session with top class musicians- well kept traditional pub - great vibe- good bar service and very clean.
Would definitely recommend as being better than other more " famous" belfast pubs we visited.

Turn down the decibels !
Aug 2019 • Friends
We often frequent this bar and enjoy the our nights there, however when the live bands are on we often have to leave. The bands are great and the music good, its just the volume ! Please turn the volume down a notch and allow us to enjoy the music and the company !

Stop deafening the customers!
Aug 2019 • Friends
I have been visiting the John Hewitt for many years as part of a usual Friday night gathering of friends. The live music is always of great quality but recently the noise levels have gotten completely out of control. To sit in the bar is absolutely deafening, often reaching way beyond the 90 decibel level. Not only does this prevent any kind of conversation but it is potentially very damaging to customers and staff alike. Why spoil a good bar? Just TURN IT DOWN!!!

The John Hewitt bar is a venue for local musicians as well as serving food and drink. I have no hesitation in recommending a visit to this pub if you are in the area.

Nice bar in the Cathedral Quarter of Belfast
Feb 2019 • Couples
John Hewitt’s is a nice bar to gather for a meet and to start your night walking through the Cathedral Quarter of Belfast. Recommend show homework on John Hewitt prior to going as it provides some background on the bar and the man.
