We stumbled across this place as we were wandering around, and it was a lovely little bar - friendly staff and customers. The guy singing on guitar with his little dog made the night. Guinness was great Highly recommended.

Fun, small little pub with a great vibe. The decor is quite eclectic and seem to be filled with a lot of locals. Centrally located and easy to find. We would definitly go back. They do not service food however there is a hamburger joint...More

Although this pub does not serve food, the staff were quite quick about producing a menu and ordering in some hamburgers for us. The décor and the true Irish character of the patrons, made this well worth the visit

Great little find in the popular Cathedral Quarter in Belfast. Cosy and quirky and specialising in rums of numerous types and prices

Spent a couple of hours in here, sampled some nice rums & Irish Gin with Ginger Ale - Yummy. Staff helpful & locals friendly.

This is an extremely small pub, so be prepared to be squashed at peak times! This is well worth it for the experience of visiting this bar. It is unique, and needs to be seen to be understood. What a wonderful pub!

Stopped by for a drink, which quickly became two. Specialises in mojitos and pina coladas, which are worth trying. Got a seat at the bar without too much difficulty, and found the barman to be very knowledgable about his spirits. Started experimenting with dark rums,...More

Definitely not the best tapas place in town. Maybe it's a bit hit and miss but our paella was literally flavored burnt rice. The rest of the food was ok. The service was poor and the atmosphere was average. As I say... much better places...More

Hi James, thanks for leaving a review but can I just check that you have got the correct venue as we don't actually serve food. Cheers!

They serve cocktails both upstairs and downstairs - we thought it was much more fun upstairs though - it's a bit weird in a fabulous quirky way!! Enjoy.
