For surroundings and heritage, The Crown has always been great. But now that they have a good selection of craft ales, it's fantastic for an easy to find rendezvous and a few to start the evening. Without a booth, I never feel like staying all night due to the busyness of the place. Whilst it could be a cliché of... More

Hi PatrickDay, its great that you like our range of craft ales and we change them regularly to make sure there is always something new to try.

Went with wife and daughter to this pub for a drink on our first visit to Belfast before returning to our respective hotels after a meal in another establishment. Really interesting decor, very friendly bar staff and a good drinks selection, although I tend to stick to Guinness whenever we travel over to Ireland. Will certainly revisit here when we... More

Visit here each time I'm in Belfast and this place has the best Guinness in Belfast...probably!!. Very popular with the tourists and there's some great history attached to it. Good food available too. The staff are friendly and are good at multi tasking taking many drinks orders at once and getting them all correct. Great atmosphere and a must visit... More

Went with few English work colleagues to show them the grand old pub and get them a few Guinness. Pub is beautiful but the Guinness is not.

Crown Bar has been a favourite of mine for over 30 years. Went there for Christmas lunch. I was the only one who had turkey - the others were equally as disappointed.
