Great Irish stew and excellent service from friendly staff. Plenty of space upstairs if the Bar is too busy. Definitely worth a visit - the bar is stunning!

Another of Belfast's old bars, over three floors and complete with doormen. We called in for a few drinks as we were too late for food. We found a nice quiet corner in the snug. The music room at the rear, was absolutely packed. We were quite amazed to hear one of the female bar staff, say to a male... More
