A Belfast icon since 1845, this gas-lit, Victorian beacon of delight serves simple pub-food that is solid, filling, and great value for money. A decent choice of real ales, and spirits are served with panache and flair by professional, experienced bar-tenders in black and white,...More

This is the classic booth type pub, good selection of stouts and largers and good next door if required. Great Guinness and a good vibe.

Although we've been here before we went in to a re visit. This place was packed not with locals but tourists. 10 deep at the bar and no where to sit. Great atmosphere though.

Have a drink (or more) there and be astonished about the authentic original old style decoration. Many beers and many Whiskeys available. Impressive are the private sitting „boxes“ :-)

Fascinating historic bar across from the Europa Hotel. Interior architecture is stunning. Many private sitting room areas for groups of 8-10 people. Every night we visited it was packed. Very popular meeting place!

I don’t honestly remember but Belfast is quite a reasonable place. I would guess at £3.50 - £4.00. Which when you compare to Dublin it’s a steal
