Lovely place to have a drink, there's a few signs saying other building were the oldest in Belfast but think this is the oldest tavern! Nice Guinness & seating area outside

We couldn't stay for food so we were only there for a few drinks but "the oldest pub in Belfast" is worth a look, although not that easy to find in a little narrow street. There was a friendly welcome from the barman and although...More
