  • 14.02. - Roost
    Within stumbling distance of the McNichols and en-route to the kitchen, large food orientated pub, split level, is extremely dark inside and would make a good rock pub, if it didn’t have a bit of reputation. Not a bad boozer, worth the visit for the lunch Like this:Like Loading...
  • 14.02. - Whites Tavern
    The oldest bar in Belfast, in the courtyard behind Monaco and within stumbling distance of Bridge Street, again a traditional looking bar but I think it lost some of its charms after being done out and then being burnt out. Still dark and cosy. Foods pretty good but of note is the hand-drawn Guinness, the […]

  • 14.02. - Pats
    Old world pub situated in a courtyard leading to the new Call centre development on the banks of the lagan. The main entrance takes you to an old-style pub, dark and cavernous with the smell of peat wafting from the open fire. You can sit either in the traditional area by the fire chomping down […]
  • 14.02. - Muldoons
    Belfast’s second most Nautical Bar (hhharrrrrr). Unspoilt, good Guinness and well worth a look (again before some prick in thick-rimmed glasses (who thinks spending Daddies money on a bar indicates entrepreneurship) buys it, rips it apart and turns it into a “pre-club bar” (whatever the frig that is.). Second opinion: Another traditional pub (not a […]
  • 14.02. - Morrisons
    Another pub that is etched in everyone’s memories, either for being allowed in and having a good time or getting turned away for the most ludicrous reasons. Near the Ulster hall and a short jaunt from Blackstaff square and Katy Daly’s. It has been done out recently and no longer looks like an old shop, […]
  • 14.02. - Morning Star
    Larger high ceiling traditional bar on Pottinger entry, this bar is popular for two reasons (maybe even three) it is a traditional boozer, it has not changed a lot really apart from a better lit back food bit, the bookies are across from it so you get a lot of people in who like a […]
  • 14.02. - Monaco
    The Monaco bars are another pretty famous stomping ground in Belfast, the front bar is every bit the traditional Irish affair with high ceilings, and seating along the walls , if you take a swing around to the back bar (or the lounge) this is were the food is served, better lit and heaving a […]
  • 14.02. - McHughs
    One of three contenders for Belfast’s oldest pub. It’s utter rubbish of course as it only opened about 7 years ago. As a Botanic Inns bar, it has a “theme” this one is their take on the gastro-pub as the entire top half of the place is devoted to a restaurant. Of course “gastro” in […]

    I used to love the Kitchen – “Country Cooking in the heart of the City”. Paddies Pizza, huge Ulster Fries all washed down with a selection of real ales. Add to this a huge mix of customers (from the shopper to the office worker through to the racing follower attracted by the beer and the […]

    A bar attached to the Limelight, formerly known as The Dome and formerly not very friendly to the alternative sorts. But the management has discovered a niche after the closure of Rock Bottom and The Drury Lane. Welcome us with open arms. The bar is large and still has remnants of why it was called […]

    I remember when this bar opened they wouldn’t let me in for being ‘too casual’. Thankfully this has all changed now, the management realises that the secret to a good bar is a mix of people Nice new pub with traditional style. This pub stands out from the newer pubs in two respects, it doesn’t […]

    Just behind the City hall, a proper pub, bar on one side as you walk in which is nicely done out, with tiles and a ton of wood. A place that you cannot get near on a lunchtime because shoppers and office sorts mingle. The food is good and it used to hold a pretty […]

    Used to be a great pub then they did it out. They spent millions on it and it looked out of date four days later. They then started to refuse me entry because I was wearing a shirt and boots but let my under 21 mate in wearing training shoes. So I complained a lot […]

    Another famous bar, god knows how many times I have been turned away from here for all manner of interesting reasons. Large bright pub split over three levels and four bars. I always head to the back bar (Fibar Magees) which is a Mock Micks pub, dark with a type of shop larder feel. Guinness […]
  • 14.02. - Empire
    Another famous pub in what I assume was an old church, the original bar in the basement, and it is large and has a stage at one end. Sells pretty good food and is always busy. Do not drink the Smithwicks. Hasn’t really changed but has lost a lot of its charm since everyone seems […]
  • 14.02. - Duke of York
    A bit of a favourite of mine even though it has no real ales, it is steeped in history and also looks the part tucked away down an alleyway. Has a large front room and equally large back room, has all the usual lagers and beers on. Of particular interest is the extensive whisky collection […]

    Every time I travel home the first pub I must drink in is the Crown, as this is the only pub in the UK owned by the national trust, it is boothed, wood finished stain class windowed. It looks like a temple to drinking, foods pretty good and the Guinness is excellent. It is always […]

    Deceptively purple pub on the outside; also because it is a corner bar you expect it to be massive inside, which it is not, it is small contemporary wood finished affair, with an exceptionally good pint of Guinness. Nice and relaxed inside, seats where a bit uncomfortable, had to drink more to take the edge […]

    Unusual Bar in Belfast’s only flat iron shape building. The décor made up of huge paintings of Irish literary greats (Shaw, Yeats, Wilde etc) propped up against the bar supping pints of Guinness and chewing the fat. Being next door to the Law courts means that it attracts the legal crowd at Lunchtime. The Guinness […]

    The wine bar in the Bigg Market Bogs opened last Friday and as much as I hate to admit it, it looks really nice. Of course, a bar is not it’s fixtures and fittings and the shambling detritus who lope around the Bigg Market will soon make it a wretched place. I now have 4 […]
