Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Found if difficult to get a booking For the family as all was booked when we arrived in Roses Point inclusive of the bet and restaurant in Yeats Country club where we were residents . After a 4 hour driveCame to Sligo town and did a walk in into the Belfry bar . Despite limited choice on the menu the food was very tasty and served with style . Thumbs up to the chef and the staff . Keep going as you are all doing a great job in these strange times . Highly recommend the food and the service

Wonderful food but the staff are truly the selling point. Felt completely welcome on every visit. Lovely young woman called Saskia served us on multiple visits - I hope her professionalism is appreciated and rewarded. That is the kind of staff every business wants working for them. Well done Saskia.

Food was delicious, fantastic selection for vegetarians, had vegetable fajitas sweet potato fries and garlic bread. The staff are lovely and most efficient. The hygiene standards in the bathrooms could have been somewhat better, but overall the experience was brilliant. Cosy place dim lighting and indoor smoking area. Lovely place for friends/ family/ groups/ and couples. Definitely recommend the fajitas and garlic bread! Ok it of this world they were! Well done staff your bosses should be proud 😃thank you for a lovely night !

My wife myself and 2 friends were in Sligo at the end of Jan for a Weekend. The Rugby 6 nations were starting so we decided to go to a local bar and watch the match. We were passing The Belfry so decided to go there, it was about 2 in the afternoon when we arrived so we were pleased to find not a lot of people about yet which meant we would get some good seats beside a TV, or so we thought. We quickly found out that there were no seats available near a TV downstairs as they were bizarrely Reserved for the Rugby, so we were offered upstairs to try there. We ventured up to check and found a lovely bar complete with fire and a large TV front and centre, what's more we also found a lovely table beside it Ressuullttt. No sorry not so quick after we had got the drinks in and were viewing the food menus and enjoying our lovely location a very officious little Bar Man/ manager came over to say that by the way these seats are reserved for the Rugby at 4. we protested that it was only 2.15 and there was no reserved sign lol on the tables and what's more we were after buying drinks and what's further more there was actually only about 12 people in the bar, at this point the Reservation waitress appeared and placed a little reserved sign on our table. Fair enough we thought you don't want our custom so we will spend our money elsewhere which we did. Never seen this anywhere else in my life for a bar and if its a Sligo thing then it may well explain why its a Ghost town lined with empty shops and no atmosphere and definitely not wort visiting again, or ever if you've never been. The Belfry... Visitors not welcome.

Booked on line for Saturday night, welcomed by a member of staff, shown to a table, but didn’t take my name for booking as there was ample seating still available. I ordered a Turkey Roast and my wife a Bacon Roast. Both meals arrived in a short space of time and the plate had Turkey, potato,carrots,swede, cauliflower, broccoli and gravy. Having spent eight nights travelling around Ireland we both agreed that this was the best meal we had. My Turkey was tasty and tender, the potatoes were soft and creamy, all the vegetables were cooked to perfection, top marks to the chef

I recently ordered a couple of takeaway pizzas and was dad from impressed by the burnt offering. Clearly the chef couldn't care less, pity because the topping wasn't bad but surely the chef could have looked at the black pizza base. See the photo's. Obviously if I had seen that in the restaurant I'd have sent it back.

38 euros seemed a rather high price for a fillet steak, but I ordered with high hopes. In the event, however, the meat that arrived looked smaller than the promised 8 oz, but - much worse - contained a large amount of gristle: whatever part of the animal it was, it can't have been fillet. I pointed this out to our server, who said she would inform the kitchen, but nothing came of that (except the bill, which we paid but with no addition for service). Very disappointing, and I won't be going back.

We had a booking here which limited us to 2 hours. Food was good but the stew special appeared as though it had been reheated in a microwave. Fish and chips & burger and chips all went down well. Service was a bit slow. We ordered a dessert and another round of drinks but our two hours were up just as the drinks were arriving.

Fantastic food but lacked staff for the crowd that that was there. Felt staff couldn’t give full attention to customers as they were rushing around trying to keep afloat. Not their fault but maybe more staff for the future. Can’t fault the food.

I had a meal there on Saturday last with my husband and son. While my son had pizza, which he enjoyed and my husband had a burger, which was also good. I had roast beef dinner, in which the beef was paper thin, a minute portion with very ' aldente' vegetables (under cooked), mash was okay, roast potatoes which were over cooked, very disappointing to say the least! Definitely not worth 18 euro. Lots of staff, nome of them asked us, if we enjoyed our meal! Just cleared the table and didn't ask if we were finished!

Terrible service, rude staff, can’t review food as waited for service for 30 mins , asked staff x 2 to order food and drinks . In the end just left. Would not recommend Need to employ staff who know what they are doing!

The most unwelcoming pub I've ever been to. Absolutely zero people skills from the staff, it's as they don't want you there. Drinks orders met sighs, food just thrown down in front of you. No-one would bring us just some salt for our meal, never mind anything else. I would be shocked if this place had many, if any, repeat customers.

We had a lovely evening here. Love the relaxed vibe and dim lights theme. Fits so nicely with the decor. Everything was clean with Sanitizing stations evident everywhere. The service was fantastic, sorry I didn't get your name, but the man was very good at his job. Friendly and polite. We all enjoyed our food! I was disappointed to see the menu had changed but once I ate I was delighted that it had! Facilities clean and social distancing obvious. I will recommend to friends. We will be back soon hopefully! thanks for everything and well done team, you nailed it 🐱 ps pizza was fab and excuse the poor photography ♥️

Got food from here last week and it was missing chips. I was contacted by a staff member to apologise to me. And tonight they send up a load of food including desert and beverages. They went above and beyond the food was fab. Will definitely be ordering again

Wanted comfort food and a good glass of wine. That’s what I got. Great Irish beef stew with buttery mash and Irish bread. Generous portions, Great service and not too expensive. Friendly staff. Plenty of seating, sport on tv and pool tables upstairs. Enjoyed it so much. Went back a second night for more stew. Others in my party had the steak sandwich and exceptional pints of Guinness.
