A great old fashioned pub serving great beer. Still has original 'snugs' which are great. Everyone is happy to share these " private" drinking areas. Great atmosphere to indulge in the Guinness.

A pub but with a difference! Gorgeous interior with stained glass windows, tiled flooring, wood panelling, snug booths and long busy bar. This was featured in our guide to Belfast and we dropped in for a drink. Glad we did. Very busy even on a Tuesday night and finding a seat was a challenge. Bar staff helpful. The sitting booths...

Driving into the city from Belfast City Airport, this public house came highly recommended by our Value Cabs taxi driver. We came to the conclusion that he must have been here a fair few times as he gave vivid - and sometimes vague - descriptions of his experiences here. From the outside, the pub really stands out. It's walls are... More

Hi J2705, thanks for the review and I'm glad we lived up to the taxi drivers recommendation. Unfortunately we have had some supplier issues which have meant that some items have been unavailable on our menus.

My wife and I and friends called in here for a drink. This is the oldest Victorian pub in Belfast and is well worth a visit. It reminded me how pubs were when I was a child. If you like a bit of history you will enjoy this pub. We didn't eat here but looking at the food that was... More

Hi slickspivSheffield, thanks for taking the time to give us a review. The pub dates back to 1826 and its interior is from the 1880's which gives a glimpse of what Belfast must have been like in the Victorian era.

The Crown is, without doubt, a beautiful building in the heart of Belfast. It has a fascinating history and is still gas-lit with snugs abundant. Little else though. You are always hard pressed to get a seat, especially at the weekend. Beers are very expensive for Belfast and the place is usually buzzing with tourists, many of whom only take... More

I am sorry that you feel our prices are expensive for Belfast, we regularly check our prices against other businesses to make sure we are competitive and our Guinness is cheaper than a number of bars in the vicinity.

The place is packed in the evenings but the bar downstairs thins out a little as workers drift off home. The inside of the place has to be seen and the range of drinks on offer is excellent. Its certainly not the place for a quiet drink, be prepared to stand and if you want a booth get their early.... More
