It was great to be able to spend the weekend in the sun at our favourite bar, great atmosphere, surroundings and top service. The cocktails also to die for.

Not enough staff to serve at the bar which was busy. More for young people who like to stand about as it was impossible to get a seat.

This place is fantastic, it looks the part, the music is awesome i could not fault that. For a bar of the beaten track and away from city centre, it really stands out as something unique and a hidden gem within a neighbourhood. Drinks are reasonably priced, cocktails are a bit step considering it the same you get in the... More

Beautiful bar, with great entertainment. Had an absolute blast, with my friends here over Easter, i would highly recommend the bar bites, especially the platter, although it is a bit pricey for all you get on it, we had the platter for four, maybe ease up on the nachos a bit. The cocktails are ok, its hard to know how... More

Attended the wolfetones lastnight and while they were amazing (as always) the venue really didn't meet the needs of the punters. The night was in the great Hall, there were so many underage children there, most completely incapable of looking after themselves. Falling all over the place and pushing people to get past. The toilets were absolutely horrible, soaking wet... More

I was at a family wedding reception at the Devenish complex on Saturday , it was a great day from start to finish. Lovely room and decor for the meal, with fabulous food. The room for the evening reception was just as beautiful, on a grander scale, and the buffet food was amazing. Friendly and attentive staff throughout, with a... More

This bar is an absolute beacon of beauty for the community and the locals that go to it, one of the most impressive bars in west/south Belfast in terms of looks and the notoriety it gets for events. But it is let down by the staff that man the bar, a bunch of young kids with no respect for elders,... More
