The Kitchen bar is a superb 'old school' bar in Belfast with a touch of class. Great pub grub with a superb atmosphere where half full or bursting to the rafters. A perfect blueprint for a traditional but classy public house.

Had the cajun burger. Was lovely. Very filling. The service was very good. Quite busy. Would recommend for lunch for a quick dinner

Probably the most visited bar when in Belfast as it is positioned perfectly for dinner afterwards in either Wagamama or Pizza Express. Guinness is always good and being able to watch football at the same time is a bonus.
