Stopped here for some lunch and a drink. Was pleasantly suprised to see a trad session going on which provided a great atmosphere without being overpowering when eating. I had the ploughmans and my partner had the chowder, both of which were lovely, served quickly and were good value.

So well looked after by the lovely staff in Mc Hughs in Belfast. We ate dinner there on two nights and they were so obliging. Catered for 25 of us on the second night and even put on the burger for us when it wasn't on the menu!! Thanks to all the staff especially the chef and Leahanne for looking... More

We spent a great Sunday afternoon outdoors at McHughs. Great live music by a duo of two guitars. Oh, the man could sing. Standard pub treat on the drinks and lovely folks enjoying the Sunday afternoon. I'll try the food next time.

Great pub that serves good food. Always a good buzz in here. On the Sunday evening we found that there was traditional Irish music live in the bar which made it even better.

McHugh's dates back to 1711 and the atmosphere reflects the history but is updated to a modern comfort level. The service and food were excellent. I ordered the smoked salmon appetizer and the seafood chowder. Both were as good as I have ever had. My dining partner had the mussels and Irish stew appetizers and recommends them highly as well....

A great selection of gin if you like it, plus recommendations of garnish and mixer for each particular one. The food menu has lots to offer, plenty of choice and it was well cooked and lovely too!

Very limited choice of beers. No proper ales on tap, just the usual fizzy lager and Guinness. Belfast Black was off. Third rate karaoke band playing 80's hits. Lack of seating. It was like going back thirty years in time. The owners need to pull their fingers out and realise customers these days demand choice. I'll not be going back.
