One of the original bars in the Cathedral quarter in Belfast, John Hewitt is one of the more authentic Belfast pubs. A great selection of beers with knowledgeable friendly staff. Food is extremely tasty with a simple but interesting menu. Always an 'interesting; crowd, providing wonderful people watching. A great place to spend a relaxing few hours in a lovely environemnt

Visited here with my wife and a friend who is a regular to put it generously! Busy enough considering the weather was rotten outside but able to get a table straight away. We both had the hake and our friend had salmon salad. Very reasonably priced and the Guinness was good too but not quite as good as in Dublin . Will definitely call again and would recommend without hesitation as we found no faults at all.

Came across this traditonal bar whilst exploring the streets of Belfast on my own. A remarkable bar with a rich history which you can read on the walls in various news reports. A wide range of beers from across the world. Although I didnt eat the food coming out from the kitchen looked appetising. They have complimentary newspapers and a diverse cliental a must visit if in Belfast

I would like to say a massive thank you to the wonderful staff at John Hewitt for making my Mum's birthday one to remember!

The food was simply divine, the staff couldn't do enough for us, and the prices were great. Love that they use local produce, the menu is really something else.

Each one of our party of seven loved every part of our meal and the whole experience!
