We were really looking forward to eating here on our last night in Belfast. Truly the worst food I have ever been served. Uncooked vegetables and inedible pie. We didn't have the heart to return the food as the waiting staff are so young and...polite. Honestly cannot recommend you don't go there enough. The toilets were filthy. Far better places to spend your money, only wish we had known.More

Went early on a Tuesday evening the place was heaving. We were invited to share with some people already in the booth which was lovely. The food was no better than average.

A very interesting place to visit, full of windfall architecture. Owned by the national trust and run as a bar with restaurant on the first floor. We had a lovely meal, very inexpensive but excellent food. Irish fare at its best.

The decor and history. Try to get a "snug". Food is good and the drinks are even better! If you get a chance, pop in

This was round the corner from our hotel so popped in, well 3 times during our brief stay, tricky to get a seat as lots of tourists (like us) but good quality Guinness and not extortionate. You can sit outside and watch the world go...round, wouldn't go out of your way but defo pop in if passing.More

Lovely pub and great atmosphere, just spoiled by the veggie and vegan food being somewhat over-priced. Vegan burger was £15 and although menu said ALL burgers come with fries, it didn’t, it only came with a very small salad and no fries at all. Did...query it and was told that it only came with a salad. They did acknowledge the menu was misleading and would look into it, but didn’t offer the fries, instead said that I would have to pay for them as a ‘side’, which was disappointing. Had the fries been included as per the menu £15 would have been ok, but for a burger and small salad - very expensive. Shame as the service by Emma was great and the pub lovely, hence only 4 star review.More

We had been recommended to call in here by various friends before our trip and it was definitely worth it! We were served by Megan and Ellyn and the fishcakes were to die for. Such a fascinating place in it's own right but the meal...made it extra specialMore

Nice lunch at an iconic Belfast pub. Managed to get a booth for all four of us. Guiness a must, even though I'm a regular Guiness drinker. A mix of fish finger, club, and chicken & avocado sandwiches with chips all round. Friendly helpful staff,...great food, and authentic srroundungs.More

Megan and Rhiannon, our servers, were great! Food quality was great! I had Lamb stew and Laura had Guinness pie. They were out of ice for our drinks. Out of mashed potatoes. Out of bangers. Out of toffee pudding. But the service was great and...our dinner ended up being great!More

Possibly THE rudest barmen I have ever ever encountered!!! Left!!! I realise it’s very busy and everywhere understaffed but why be disgustingly rude to customers who are being perfectly polite

Amazing decor and atmosphere but rubbish for coeliacs. We hoped to have lunch there but nothing was labelled for allergens and when we asked for advice at the bar we were told to go onto the company website. Turns out there were only two possible...dishes I could have and these were by no means certain.More

Where to start, what a pub, atmosphere is amazing, The building has so much character you can spend a whole evening just looking around Service was second to none, Rhiannon served our drinks and brought our menu to the snug (which you must experience the...snugs) Without being asked she moved us to a more roomy and light snug which only improved our experience The food is second to none the Irish stew is amazing The way the staff, Rhiannon, Megan and Heath looked after us made us feel like a locals It’s a must for anyone visiting BelfastMore

Was able to book a table on Saturday night during our visit to Belfast for a group of 10 people. We'd have liked to book at 7:30pm but were unable to, after phoning and speaking to someone they suggested booking around 5pm or 8:30pm as...it would be quieter, we managed to get a table for 8:30pm. Staff were pleasant although we felt rushed to order food as they said the kitchen was going to close. A little disappointed as it was their suggestion that a table would be available at 8:30, if they want to close the kitchen they shouldn't accept late bookings. Food was OK as was the atmosphere, but I'd recommend getting their earlier to avoid being rushed.More

The booths wouldn’t fit 13 and are very separated by glass and beautiful original woodwork so you wouldn’t be able to see each other.

Not sure but some places will only allow children into bars if you are eating. Sorry I can’t be any more help.
