Our favourite pub time is afternoon/early evening, and our favourite type of pub is not too big, no music, cosy friendly welcoming atmosphere, and decent pub food. The Fountain Tavern ticked all of the boxes. No doubt the upstairs dining-room would have been nice, but we greatly enjoyed the downstairs bar menu on both our visits.

Nipped in for some grub and a couple of beers while visiting Belfast with my mum. Food was lovely, and the service from the lovely Jolene was top notch, friendly and informative. If I ever find myself over there again I'll definitely be paying another visit.

Good food, warm atmosphere and great value on a wintry day. Great friendly service and some of the best cod and chips in town.

Called in here for a pint of Guinness ! Delicious!!! I think here served the best of them all during our times in Belfast! It does have the feel of a local pub when you first walk in and there were plenty of regulars which adds to its charm! There were also plenty of visitors and patrons of all ages!... More

Good pub grub at a reasonable price. Portions were massive...if not a little too big. Would have given it 5 but the missus had a beanburger and it was very floury but other than that...great pub food and very friendly staff. Would recommend.

Thank stephen s
