They say that Guinness tastes better in Ireland and does not travel - they are right and what better place to sip on one than this historic Pub

The Crown is a must see pub for people interested in interiors, Victoriana and love a drink. It's a busy place on a Friday night, if you can get one of the booths, you're into a winner! Friends said the building is maintained by the National Trust. They've done a beautiful job!

Arrived at the restaurant and was seated straight away, waitresses were very nice, we were handed two menus and after a few minutes our waitress returned to take our order, I made my order and my husband ordered a mixed grill only to be told the mixed grill wasn't available, we were given a few more minutes to order so...

Hi Tracy d, we're sorry that you were disappointed with your visit with us and that we had ran out of a number of items. We have recently changed our supplier schedule and this has caused some disruption to our supply but our waiting staff should have informed you about dishes that were unavailable and I have spoken to the...

Probably the best looking of the old pubs of Belfast, with it's exquisite exterior tiling and long marble bar, fashioned by Italian craftsmen; the Crown, now owned by the National Trust, is opposite the Europa Hotel and next to Robinson's bar. When you enter, it is like stepping back in time. The saloon is beautifully finished in carved wood, stained... More

Hi holidaymanWashington, thanks for the great description of our bar which is a great example of a Victorian gin palace and is original from the 1880's. I'm sorry that you had a wait at the bar and were then left unhappy with the food service upstairs. Our steak and Guinness pie is an extremely popular menu item and due to... More

My Group had booked a meal in the dining room at the Crown, which is above the bar. The bar was packed (it was a Friday night!) but the meal was resonably priced although my rare steak was a little too done for my taste. Beautiful setting though, the upstairs not quite as pretty as the bar itself. Service and... More

After having lunched here around 8 years ago it was a must stop while in Belfast. Something must have changed with the kitchen as we had a lousy meal and we paid far too much.The pub itself downstairs is a must see while in Belfast. Enjoy a pint or two, but eat elsewhere is my suggestion.

Hi edSchmidt, I'm sorry that on your return to the Crown you were left disappointed. We offer pub food at competitive prices and regularly check our menu against other pubs. The menu itself changes twice a year and we try and keep a mix of pub classics with some specialist dishes like our 10 varieties of sausage and champ. We're... More
