“Great for traditional chow”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

We stopped in for Belfast Lager and Smithwick's, and stayed on for the Irish stew and the seafood chowder. Yum! Everything sure hit the spot.

“A good night/day at Brennans”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

Hi

We moved to England several years ago but enjoy going home to Belfast. We have spent many a great time at Brennan's both during the day and on an evening. The food is great and they will rehash a dish to your taste (only a little quibble about the menu it has no vegetarian options). The staff are great and was served a few times by Donna who is a great asset to the pub. The weekend evening entertainment is brilliant. There is a mixed age group and has and oldy world traditional pub feeling. Can't wait to go back.

“Good food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

Had the steak and Guinness pie. Fellow travelers had the fish and chips. Good value for the money. Service was decent for how busy the place was.
