Was recommended to Ryan's recently.

I had a beer at the bar and was very... More

Visited on a Thursday night , had drinks round the fire and the famous chicken wings which are top notch!! Good vibe and they have such a decent playlist of music on in the background!

We were visiting the area for a weekend away and popped in for a drink and ended up spending the evening there including a 2 course meal for 2 for £10. Very impressed will definitely return.

I really enjoyed my meal here, 2 courses for £10 usually has a pretty basic menu but I thought they had a perfect choice of foods! Really enjoyed it and the whole buzz of the place was great. Although it was busy nothing was too much for the staff!

This was my first time to Ryan's bar and I was impressed. They had a great 2 course for £10 deal which my partner and I made use of. It is very much pub grub sort of food, so if that's what you are looking for then it's perfect. I liked the edgy feel of the pub and staff also... More

Came here for food and drinks with some friends. We opted for the 2 courses for 10£. The food is ok, not a great selection but then for 10£ that's what you would expect! it is good value food and the pub is friendly. I would come here again for casual cheap food and a relaxed atmosphere.

I know this was a bar originally known as the "Four in Hand" from many years ago. So this was our first visit since it changed to what it is called now. It was my friends 48th wedding anniversary and it was recommended by a family member to try it out. I can sum up our visit by saying of... More

Our black taxi driver recommended this for lunch. It’s within easy walking distance of the Ulster museaum and botanical gardens. The restaurant is upstairs and bar is downstars. This was awesome pub food and definitely a local favorite. First the menus have the old sci-fi movie theme on the cover which is fun, second the prices are great 2 cources... More

Three years since I visited Belfast and Ryan's Bar. A vibrant, busy and very friendly pub the food is excellent. The two course meal for the price is an added bonus. The staff are superb.
