“lovely well mannered staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

I took my wife and children to Belfast on Saturday the 8th of june, we went to the nomadic museum then called into the Northern whig for a late lunch. We were met at the sign by the manager and shown to a table, nice right beside the window with room for our buggies. The manager fetched us 2 high chairs and a jug of water. Once we were settled our order was taken by victor my wife had the prawn salad while I had the chicken pitta both were top class. Good portions and well priced our two kids had the chicken gougons and the pasta again for kids I couldn't fault it the food looked like a mini version of the adults mains. Once we had finished the plates were cleared by the manager who chatted as he cleared He invited us to sit on and relax and when ready just to ask for the bill we were not rushed in anyway. As a family day out we felt so welcomed at the whig that I felt obligated to leave a comment so to Laim and victor thank you we will be back and I have told our friends and family the the Northern whig is a must for lunch when in Belfast.

Fabulous service, value and food! Will definitely return! Two courses for £10.... Not your average pub grub... Gastronomic!

“Great food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

I went to the Northern Whig the last Friday in May for lunch and the food was great! The food came quickly and place was beautiful, and was busy which created a good atmosphere. It was very nicely presented, and tasted great! The service was good, but felt that the customer service could be a bit better but other than that the food was magnificent! Would definitely go back

“Had a lovely lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

Went to Northern Whig on Saturday and had a lovely lunch with my wife and daughter. We only had mains from the lunch menu. Beer Battered fish and the burger. I gotta say it was delicious. My wife and i shared half and half. Good Service and really nice staff. Will definitely be back. Thanks
