After hearing buzz around John Longs for years finally tried it out.... disappointed. Nothing special at all, firstly the food was lukewarm! And not one or two things everything we ordered. Great to see a veggie option but would be better suited having a normal...More

Upon entering this casual and brick establishment we were greeted by the cook behind the open kitchen to select our seats. We chose a booth in the middle of the restaurant. Photos of H&W shipyard (Harland and Wolff, builders of the RMS Titanic) and other...More

Undoubtedly the best fish and chips that I have ever tasted in the UK. Been many times and tried many different items from their menu. I can say that I have never been disappointed. Quaint old-school Belfast interior, nicely decorated with pictures of numerous celebrities...More

It is hard to say much more than “just visit this place”! It is a delicious taste of old Belfast and never fails to impress.

The building is classic and once inside you'll find a no-frills very good meal. I can't weigh in and say it's best ever, as I'm no fish & chips expert, but it was good and tasty and I'd definitely go back.
