One of the very few bars owned by The National Trust, this one surely surprises the first time visitors with its period gas lamps, ornate interiors, carved wooden ceiling, etched/stained glass windows, cosy wooden boxes with antique brass bell-system to call staff for service. A true Victorian gem preserved since 1826. Regret arriving there late at night and missing out on the pub-grub, but would surely like to visit again.

As title said lovely old fashion bar bursting with the seems with character.
Still lights with gas mantels all around the place, titled floors etc.
However even more importantly serves very good selection of good beverages and excellent service ( even though the night we were there before Christmas it was packed).

One of the oldest pubs in Belfast with lovely ornate Victorian decor. Atmosphere is buzzing with all age groups. The food was fantastic, lovely traditional menu just what I like! A warm hospitality from all the staff. This pub is directly in front of the Europa hotel and has lots of nearby bars to visit- a must if you go to Belfast!!
