My Partner and I have visited Whites quite a few times over the past few years, and really appreciate the cosy welcoming atmosphere and staff. However on our last two visits in the past year, the food has been way below par. When I complained...More

Take a step back and enjoy one of Belfast’s oldest pubs. Enjoy a pint in this old tavern. Well with a visit.

Oldest Tavern in Belfast, circa 1630. Great selection of both beer and spirits. Pork Sandwich excellent though fries soggy. Very reasonably priced and friendly staff.

First of all, White's Tavern is the oldest tavern in Belfast dating back to 1630! They serve excellent local pub fare and delicious local beers. This should be a must stop in Belfast.

I’m solely reviewing the food in this review. In a word: poor. It’s never a good starting sign that the cups were tea stained. I didn’t mind but my friend got his changed eventually. There was one server doing most of the running and she...More

We had a late lunch at this hard-to-find pub down an alley without much of a sign to indicate what it is until you’re right on it. I had Bangor’s (sausages) and Mash (potatoes) and hubby had fish n’ chips and we both had Guinness....More

Not sure. Did not see any children. Not sure it suitable for children though there is a seating area outside main bar.

Sorry! We were only there for a few drinks. Were not eating there so didn't take note of Menu or Times.
