If you get a little tired of the traditional pubs, and want something more like home (for us at least!), this is a great place. Very funky and small, with great ambience. Both times we went, the upstairs was closed. I was hoping to check...More

Hi, thanks for the great review! If the upstairs lounge is closed the next time you are in just ask the staff on duty and they will be more than happy to let you have a peak!

We stumbled across this place as we were wandering around, and it was a lovely little bar - friendly staff and customers. The guy singing on guitar with his little dog made the night. Guinness was great Highly recommended.

Fun, small little pub with a great vibe. The decor is quite eclectic and seem to be filled with a lot of locals. Centrally located and easy to find. We would definitly go back. They do not service food however there is a hamburger joint...More

Although this pub does not serve food, the staff were quite quick about producing a menu and ordering in some hamburgers for us. The décor and the true Irish character of the patrons, made this well worth the visit

Great little find in the popular Cathedral Quarter in Belfast. Cosy and quirky and specialising in rums of numerous types and prices

Spent a couple of hours in here, sampled some nice rums & Irish Gin with Ginger Ale - Yummy. Staff helpful & locals friendly.

This is an extremely small pub, so be prepared to be squashed at peak times! This is well worth it for the experience of visiting this bar. It is unique, and needs to be seen to be understood. What a wonderful pub!

They serve cocktails both upstairs and downstairs - we thought it was much more fun upstairs though - it's a bit weird in a fabulous quirky way!! Enjoy.
