I had the veggie curry & my wife had the open prawn sandwich. For breakfast I had the full Ulster Fry and my wife had the scrambled eggs/salmon. All brilliant.... More

Haven't been here since it was the piano bar but decided to indulge in a pre theatre lunch with my sister. Prebooked but arrived a bit early at 12.30 which wasn't a problem even though the place looked busy. Friendly staff efficiently dealt with the Q in the waiting area and it wasn't long before we were seated at a... More

I ate her for lunch on Saturday. I highly recommend the Belfast bap. It was delicious. The place looks great with quirky decor and paintings on the walls. The ladies toilets has a basket with complimentary hygiene products which was a nice touch. The only downside was the service. The servers were incredibly slow to seat us, take our order... More

Came here for breakfast on a recent trip as our hotel was around the corner. My partner had the all day fry which he really enjoyed and I had a lovely scone. Quirky place and good service.

Saturday morning breakfast, 5 minutes walk from our hotel and recommended by the Concierge. The decor and ambience is fab, soft lighting, chandeliers and quirky pictures. We were lucky to be seated quickly as it turned busy shortly after we arrived at about 10am. The Irish breakfast was perfect for my husband and the omelette was enough for me. The... More

I like cooking and am very particular about my food. I ordered steak and ale pie from the special's menu. This pie is heavenly, it has brocolli, garlic and a beautiful mushroom combination with ale. Highly recommended... Also, great atmosphere..
