Lavery's has 4 venues under one roof: a public bar, a roof terrace, a beer garden and a ballroom. It has something for most people and I would definitely recommend this venue.

Good pub with lots of pool tables and good food with friendly staff. If you are on a boys day out it is ideal place to go and play pool and watch football.

Having only been allowed in to woodworkers half hour previous was then refused entry upstairs. Why? Because they didn’t like the sound of my English accent. Get a grip Belfast. Move with the times!

The music on a Saturday night is mostly dance music with the occasional classic pop song. Dress code is mostly anything goes but you will not be allowed entry if you are wearing tracksuit bottoms.
