This is a loverly pub that is great to have a well deserved break in when you have had enough of walking the streets of Belfast. The staff are very friendly and the bar meals are very good.

Booked for family dinner. Great graduation menu, very busy venue with restaurant upstairs. Steak on stone great. Sadly we had a waitress who had no personality and was very grumpy. Chips greasy and portions small. Deserts all lovely. Normally fabulous but a touch disappointed tonight.
