“Fantastic Spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2012

I came to whites and saw it was very busy but thought I'd chance my arm and see what it's like, i hadn't been in a good few years. I was very impressed. A lot of bar-restaurants let the standards slip when it gets busy, but this wasn't the case. I got the last free table and had a very friendly waitress come and get my sorted within seconds of coming in. The food didn't take too long (another surprise considering how busy it was) and was fantastic!! I had the Steak & Guinness pie and would give anything for the recipe. The pint of guinness I had was tremendous, I've had a pint of the black stuff at most of the trad bars in belfast and quality doesn't vary too much but this was a cut above the rest! Glorious fire blazing away and as i finished my meal a singer/songwriter was just setting up, I stayed for his set and ended up having a brilliant wee night! Highly recommend whites!!

“Atmospheric.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2012

Had three days in Belfast and visited twice, Thurs afternoon was quiet but the bar staff were very friendly and chatty, really nice. Returned Sat lunch for some food which was excellent Irish stew and live background music, bar was very busy and buzzing and the staff again were just excellent and very friendly. Would recommend.

“A diverting experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2011

A very old pub that is still reassuringly popular. The newspaper clippings on the walls means the tavern is like a museum as well.

The vibrant chatter of the other punters creates an embracing atmosphere. There are a couple of downsides: the music is a touch too loud and arguably not needed; and the food doesn't look great. But overall a pleasant enough drinking spot away from the crowded shops.

“Great pub!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2011

Good atmosphere for a quick drink! Some pubs in Belfast are ruined by the addition of too many TV screens
This one has kept it's pub atmosphere by not falling into that trap

“One of Belfast best pubs for food..”

I love Whites and although I now live in England and make a point of going for lunch or dinner everytime i'm home. Great traditional homecooked food in a really relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommended!
