A small and comfortable pub in downtown Belfast, close to Hilton hotel and convention centre. Good selection of beer and ciders. Yes, good food as well. Staff friendly, room to sit outside if the weather is nice.

Popped in for a drink - there were two sided to the bar and I think we ended up in the locals bar with little booths. Only stopped in for a drink as its right next to St Geroges Market place. Would try the other side of the bar next time.

Nice place for a wee pint. Nothing extraordinary - bartenders are attentive and the prices are good value.

Generally uncared for feel about the place. Went in for a note to eat but just had a quick drink and left. Didn't feel welcome.

Avoid this bar. Started to pull our beer then served another 5 customers before finishing our order. Very ignorant. Don't deserve any business.

We were in St George's market and decided to go for lunch somewhere nearby. We went to Ronnie Drew's with no idea what it would be like. The interior is plain even a bit dowdy but clean, the staff are pleasant... But the food is great!! Everything was beautifully cooked and well presented and I am really fussy! The chef... More

Been coming here for ages. They stopped doing breakfast for a while but back at it again. It's literally the best in Belfast. Great value. Located beside St George market so brilliant spot to hit before the market. Has a lot of history and full of locals. A must do in Belfast

Great pub with a few 'characters' in there. Internal architecture is very nice and Guinness is great. Certainly worth a visit....
