This was the first pub we went to on our first night in Belfast and it certainly set the bar very high (no pun intended). Guinness memorabilia is all over the place! Friendly staff and ideally located!

Visited during a quiet Thursday evening, rare I was told, but got to fully take in this really interesting pub. Every surface is covered with pub paraphernalia, meaning every inch has something worth reading or considering. It also makes it genuinely unique. Added to this...More

It is difficult to find the words to express how excellent this pub is. The decor is something else and the atmosphere terrific. Knowledgeable, pleasant and helpful staff round off what is a MUST GO TO pub in Belfast

I couldn't recommend this pub more highly. The decor is fabulous and there was great live music. We had a great evening.

A central, very busy and historic pub with interesting paraphernalia plastered all over the walls. Worth a visit, but the beer is better elsewhere.
