Ive had this eatery recommended by a handful of people I have met in Belfast. I found the traditional Irish food very tasty and a lot of people eating here. When the locals eat here it must be good

First stop in Belfast - throughly enjoyed the veggie fry with all the types of carb possible - soda bread, pancake, potatoe bread and hash browns. Perfect after an early flight or a hangover. Really lovely staff
