Morning Star is a traditional Irish pub which was very busy when I visited. It serves a good range of food and drinks and I would recommend a visit to this establishment.

Massive portions of delicious home cooked food...made the mistake of having a starter!! The food is delicious and freshly made...the roasts and Guinness pie were massive and very tasty. As seems to be the case for all Belfast the staff are ultra friendly and welcoming!...More

The food was generous and reasonably priced. The atmosphere is great and the service is very friendly. My first meal tasted burnt but they exchanged it for something else very readily.

We stopped for drink here but after seeing the food stayed for dinner. The menu is excellent and the choices of meat are delicious. The black pudding mash is wonderful.
