As it was my first time, the first impression when walking in was good as there are awards for the bar and the staff displayed by the bar. Having visited I have no idea how they won any of these. The menu is basic pub grub but the standard of food is way below par. Several of us either sent food back or did not eat what we had been served. The food appeared to have been left out and simply reheated in a microwave or left too long on a hot plate to where it had developed a skin. Any orders in batter such as the chicken goujons were very greasy and the 'creamy mash' was inedible. The service was good by the young girls at the bar if you are standing having a drink but if you are in the restaurant you pretty much have to get up and go to the bar for your own drinks as the restaurant staff did not seem that interested in helping in that way. None of us will be frequenting this establishment again.

First time we have eaten here. The service was very efficient and friendly. The menu had a great choice and our meals were very tasty. Some of the best prices i have seen anywhere let alone in the centre of Belfast.
Will definitely call again.

It is terrible to have such a good location and serve such poor food. I believe that they are trading on unsuspecting shoppers. I would be surprised if they have any repeat customers.
I got their soda bread pizza and it was a lump of dough, about 3 inches thick with one slice of tomato, one tiny piece of red pepper and a pile of cheap tasteless cheese on top. The chips had black spots on them and were inedible. Appalling!.

Called in for a meal around 7 on the last Saturday before Christmas. This wee pub is always buzzing! The food end was full with Christmas parties. Service was good and pleasant, plenty of staff on and the meals were brought out quickly. The food was tasty average pub grub. Reasonably priced. Will nip in again when shopping in belfast.
