A bit of Belfast history

This is the oldest pub in Belfast, and it must have seen so much history since it first opened its doors in 1630. Tucked away up an entry, it's cozy and atmospheric. Even at... read more

I am a 57 year old man and have joined this trip site to say how much I throughly enjoy my time here. My wife and I along with 2 friends were recommended here by a friend while on holiday for the weekend. We did have to send all of our food back as it was only mildly warm however,... More

Nice pub, amazing open fire, excellent whiskey selection. Arrived at 5.50pm on a Tuesday evening, the girl behind the bar told us that the kitchen had closed and that she was closing the bar in 30 mins. I said that we wouldn't be staying long, so she let us place an order of one round of drinks. In the time... More

Hi Dee, thanks for your review and for coming into White's on Tuesday evening, as I know you've been few times before. Our website/facebook page is right, we do close at 8pm on a Tuesday. On the Tuesday night that you visited us, we closed 1 hour early so that we could do maintenance, paint some parts of the interior... More

This is the oldest pub in Belfast, and it must have seen so much history since it first opened its doors in 1630. Tucked away up an entry, it's cozy and atmospheric. Even at lunchtime it's cozy with little natural light, instead there are tealights everywhere which makes it delightful. The service is good and the food is honest to... More

Hi Coz! Thanks for your comment and for having lunch with us! Really happy you could spend some time at Whites, it really does have a lot of history and if you look around, you'll find pockets of information all around the bar. I think perhaps your server didn't explain properly about the Lasagne - it wasn't sold out -... More

We were recommended to come here for lunch by a local. It's a hidden up an alley and doesn't look much from the outside but it has a cozy warm atmosphere inside. The food was good and it was just what we needed on a cold afternoon.

The barman told me they reduced the size of the steak pie, which is not a problem, as its still huge..! The meat was great, but possibly needed a bit more gravy..... Good honest pub food. As you are usually spoilt for choice with the variety of beers offered in pubs now, Whites may lack on this front, but the... More

It has been a long time since I ate at the tavern and my wife and I decided to pay a visit last week for a quick bite of lunch. The bar is still very atmospheric as not much natural light enters the building from the entry and the lit candles complete the atmosphere. Our lunch of lasagne was generous... More

Eight of us had a meal here on a Friday evening. Served by a very pleasant young man. Orders for food and drinks taken quickly. Food was fantastic all of us enjoyed our dish. Atmosphere in bar is really warm and we had a very pleasant night. If we were to gripe about anything it would be the live singer.... More

Hi there! We remember your table and we're so glad you enjoyed your night with us. It was a really good night. The singer that night was great but you're right - she was a bit loud and we did tell her to turn it down at one point. I'm glad it didn't spoil your fun though. Welcome back anytime... More
