Went here for a drink, it does get very busy, so I would be prepared to stand. There are seating booths but they were all busy, but the interior is amazing, and such a unique place.

Lots of history and original decor in this bar. Snugs are great if you can get one, it’s usually really busy. Avoid the toilets at all costs, being national trust run now they fall greatly below their normal standards!!! Other than that worth a visit.

Popped in for a drink with friends whilst on holiday in Belfast. Such a shame that the Barman was quite rude and miserable. Sort out your Bar Staff. After all- it’s a tourist attraction.

Great atmosphere and history, particularly liked the booths and the story behind the bells ! Friendly clientele - even to English opposition - and good choice of beers - my favourite was Nicholson. Restaurant upstairs provided reasonable choice of simple food.
