Brought my family (on a day trip to Belfast) to The John Hewitt for lunch. The food was great - my steak & kidney pie was a feast. Free newspapers, real beer - I didn't want to leave.

Brought my mother to the John Hewitt for lunch. Great food but she said the toilets were disgusting. Also great selection of beers.

Decided to try lunch here after reading a write-up in the Independent on the plane over to Belfast. So glad we read that article - the food and atmosphere was brilliant - freshly fired squid with coriandar rice and salse verde - and large portions too. Huge varierty of beers on tap too. We missed the music, but speaking to other people later they apparently put on great free shows in the late afternoon/evening.

Slightly off the beaten track, but don't let that put you off - fantastic!

We just stumbled upon this bar. We had eaten around the corner in NO 27 Talbot Road. We were very lucky as it was a Saturday night and there were folks playing music. Very upbeat and traditional style music. It was an old style pub with a good local atmosphere. Not sure how many locals were there but it was just up our street. The drinks were reasonably priced for a city. The music did it for us and we would visit here again ( especially if the music was on).
