“Scrumptious- Always hits the spot!!”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

We have eaten lunch in the John Hewitt Bar many times over the years and have never had a bad meal. The food is always delicious. Service is fast and efficient which suits people who are out for a quick lunch from work. My favourite of chicken gougons with rice and spicy veg was off the menu today so I ordered what the friendly waitress recommended- Tandoori marinated chicken breast, cumin potatoes and garlic vegetables. Well, it was fabulous! Highly recommended. In too much of a rush today for coffee which was a pity as their coffee is great too.

“Fabulous beer, food, atmosphere”
Reviewed July 28, 2014 via mobile

The best pub in Belfast IMO. Great range of beers (and other victuals!). Un-fussy but really good grub and the atmosphere and spirit of the place envelopes you!
