called in for a drink so no opinion on restaurant. bar downstairs is pretty much a tourist attraction. fascinating, but over-priced and service is minimal. nice place for a photo, but couldn't imagine spending an evening here.

Looks stunning inside and out. The staff are friendly and the beer is great. All the little booths are unique and the glass / woodwork is all beautiful. Defo worth a visit

Our taxi driver left us out at the crown after we asked him to bring us to a good pub. The decor is exquisite with the original bar and ceiling from the 1800s. We were lucky to get a booth in the bar, so could have a quiet drink. Would definitely recommend a visit.

What an amazing pub this place has some fantastic architecture and the beer is good (if you can show me a pub in Belfast that doesn't have good beer I'll be amazed) the staff like everyone in Belfast are very friendly. This is a must visit

The pub is stunning real oldy worldy. The carvings in the ceiling and around the pub was beautiful and i loved the private booths where you can fit around 8 people in, maybe more if you don't mind getting closer to the person next to you. The drinks was expensive though compared to other pubs in the area. Unfortunately that... More

Had friends over from England so of course we headed to our famous crown bar. We had something to eat which we all enjoyed so we left a very generous tip as I know many of the tourist visiting do. I later discovered the tips only go to floor staff and are not split with the hard working kitchen staff... More

My boyfriend and I went to dinner in the restaurant upstairs and we're honestly disappointed. The meals were overpriced for the actual meal. My boyfriend got the 10oz ribeye steak and it definitely was not that. The downstairs saloon is amazing and a really cool pub, but I wouldn't recommend the food.

General Manager A, General Manager at The Crown Liquor Saloon, responded to this review

Hi Mloeffler, Thanks for the review and I am sorry that you were left disappointed with your meal. We only serve 2 types of steak which are the 10oz ribeye or the 14oz porterhouse steak and regularly check the quality of the meat being delivered so I am sorry that you were not happy with the food you received. I... More

I had heard about The Crown and this was my first visit. It wasn't a disappointment. The décor is wonderful and I enjoyed the privacy of the booths. We had a meal in the restaurant upstairs and I can recommend the Irish Stew. The service was good and the price reasonable. If you are thinking of visiting, they don't customers... More

Very historic and full of atmosphere but drinks very expensive. Service fine but nothing startling. Been once doubt if I will return
