The crown bar has to be the best spot in Belfast to have a good pint of the black stuff. Anytime I'm down in the city I always make sure to have a few pints of Guinness here it's top notch

Any trup to Belfast MUST include a trip to The Crown. Whats great about this place is that the locals still frequent it so you can enjoy some craig while having a thrist quenching guiness.

What a great building! So over the top with beautiful original ornate Victorian glass, carved woodwork inside and on the ceilings. So much history! Lovely little private booths where gentlemen of a bye gone era were entertained by ladies, or secretive ladies could enjoy a drink in private. Booths add to a lovely intimate atmosphere for a group. The Guinness... More

Well what a treat! This is a gorgeous pub both inside and out. Definitely a place to visit to experience wonderful Irish pub. We visited on weekday mid afternoon and was still packed and full of atmosphere so can imagine that evenings and weekends might be a bit too much! Unfortunately children aren't allowed in, but too be honest might... More

Hi BelfastFoodTravelMan, thanks for the review and we're glad you enjoyed your visit. If you are visiting again it is possible to reserve a snug but its sometimes fun to just take pot luck and maybe share one with some people instead. Hope to see you again soon Andy More

called in for a drink so no opinion on restaurant. bar downstairs is pretty much a tourist attraction. fascinating, but over-priced and service is minimal. nice place for a photo, but couldn't imagine spending an evening here.

Hi Boozehound666, I'm sorry that you were not impressed by your recent visit. The downstairs bar is original from the 1880's and many people do come in to look at the fantastic surroundings but it is first and foremost a bar. We regularly check our prices against the local competition to make sure we are not overpriced and always try... More

Our taxi driver left us out at the crown after we asked him to bring us to a good pub. The decor is exquisite with the original bar and ceiling from the 1800s. We were lucky to get a booth in the bar, so could have a quiet drink. Would definitely recommend a visit.
