“Great Pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

If you want a classic Irish/Northern Irish pub, this is your place to go. Excellent food and drink. Great music. Tucked away near City Centre, it's definitely worth finding. The Real Deal, not some phoney touristy place.

“Oldest tavern in Belfast.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

It is hard to find, because it is down a close, but just ask the bus tour guys. Has a super cool, cavernous feel to it. Smells a bit musty and is chilly, but you can feel the history. Had perfectly poured Guinness. Started with yummy fish chowder. My husband had smoked Haddock which was perfection with mash and spring onions and veggies. I had the fish cake which was good, but I wished I had what he had. Be patient, the service is a hair slow.

“Fantastic wee little bar tucked away in Belfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

Masses of atmosphere to be found in this ancient building that used to be a stable tavern. It has a great open fire place and a low heavy beamed ceiling with a great feeling of past times about it. With the bar staff being very friendly and welcoming and the food is top notch rustick fare, this place is a must when visiting Belfast

“" Tasty food "”

Had lunch with a friend recently. The portions were good and the food was tasty, especially the shepherds pie. Friendly service, just a little bit slow. Very clean toilets :-) Nice atmosphere.

“Lovely Boozer.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012

Called in on Sunday morning last. Wasn't busy, a few tourists having food and a few locals at the bar. There was live music by a young guy who was taking requests, and we enjoyed him. He made it a good experience. Service was good and the waitress was friendly. However, a pet hate of mine is when the staff go outside for a smoke and abandon their station, which happened on our visit. I understand they need a smoke but why not get cover for their absence? We didn't stay too long but agreed that we will definitely return on our next visit to Belfast. One of the better pubs in Belfast.
