Nipped in for some grub and a couple of beers while visiting Belfast with my mum. Food was lovely, and the service from the lovely Jolene was top notch, friendly and informative. If I ever find myself over there again I'll definitely be paying another visit.

Good food, warm atmosphere and great value on a wintry day. Great friendly service and some of the best cod and chips in town.

Called in here for a pint of Guinness ! Delicious!!! I think here served the best of them all during our times in Belfast! It does have the feel of a local pub when you first walk in and there were plenty of regulars which adds to its charm! There were also plenty of visitors and patrons of all ages!... More
