We had dinner and drinks here on our first night in Belfast and what a welcome! We had dinner upstairs and had traditional Irish Stew which melted in your mouth it was fabulous. The service was good. The salted caramel profiteroles for dessert were to die for and I can highly recommend!
We went downstairs for drinks and what a place with private booths along the length of the bar it’s an amazing place. You get a real feel for the gin palace it would have been in its heyday. Drinks were reasonably priced which is always a plus.
This is another must see when in town

The service was horrible, the waiter was quite arrogant and unfriendly. The food is mediocre and nothing different from cheap eats pubs. The only thing worth vsiiting this place is the ambiance and the novelty of being the oldest liquor saloon in Belfast. It’s worth visiting once for the experience and photo op. But if you want good food with good service, this establishment unfortunately is not the place to be,

Went for a drink to check out the fabulous decor. Unfortunately we couldn't get a booth but enjoyed a drink and good atmosphere sitting at the bar. Reasonably priced, worth it for the uniqueness of the building.

Arrive early or pre book a booth if you can. Great atmosphere and fun environment to have a beer and show your kids what bars used to be like!
