“Cracking wee bar”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

Love the atmosphere in the bar especially on Grand National day - always extremely busy then as there is a bookies right next door so it attracts punters! Friendly bar staff and possibly one of the nicest pints in town!

“Local Bar in the center of Belfast”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

You'll find this local bar at the back of the Castlecourt Shoping center, on Castle Street. To me, it's a real market bar, with hungry and thirsty punters, who aren't looking for all the mod-cons. It's a kinda no-nonsense bar with genuine people as customers. I'd imagine the majority of them are regulars, and if I lived in Belfast, I would probably be one too.
