I called in for a pint last night with my friends. The bar was virtually empty and the grumpy barman told me there's too many people with me, What a pathetic excuse. Save yourself the hassle and go elsewhere.

attempted to get a beer in this bar last night, a place my friends and I use regularly but were refused by the sourbaked barman as there were "too many of us." There were 8 of us. I looked around the bar, there were two others in the place? shocking customer service and a poor reflection on the great city... More

Great clean bar. Fantastic selection of local ales etc which staff seem genuinely passionate about. Hidden gem in city centre right beside Victoria centre. Small but perfectly formed. Locals mix seamlessly with tourists. Belfast in a nutshell.

We had been walking round for ages and it had gotten dark and we came upon bittles bar so decided to pop in for a beer or two. Although only a small place it was an old traditional bar with lots of art on the walls. We were made very welcome here by the staff and had a nice pint... More

We visited Bittles bar following recommendation. Bittles is a busy and lively bar with a really warm and welcoming feel to it. Best pint of Guinness we've had and a huge selection of Irish whiskey with a few Scotch as well. John the owner was more than happy to talk through his collection and told us some of the history...

Genuine friendly pub. Not tourist plastic and has its own history. Great pint every time I visit. Had some great conversations with the regular drinkers and John whenever working out of Belfast. Very kindly sorted me out for a lift back to hotel too. Genuine pub. Love it.

Popped in for a drink, but it felt like we weren't entirely welcomed, drunk up and left, and to be fair i don't think they even noticed. Shame as its a pretty cool little place.

Best pint of Guinness I've had in Belfast! Great atmosphere, and fantastic paintings of all famous Irish folk. Gem of a wee pub.

A quaint and unusual tiny triangular shaped Belfast bar. John the proprietor is friendly and interesting to chat with, but not one to suffer fool;s and timewasters gladly. A top gentleman indeed!
