  • Try the Belfast ale and stay away from the Aspal, it's rocket fuel
  • A lot of people don't realise that the bar is a social economy. All the profits are gifted to the Unemployment Resource Centre. So you can get pissed and feel good about yourself.
  • Great pub. It's big too. Don't miss the murals in the alleys.
  • On Fridays, get a delicious and reasonably-priced bowl of seafood chowder with your pint of local brew.
  • Awesome Irish folk music and great beer prices
  • A must if you're in Belfast. Very irish pub
  • Best bar in Belfast!

  • Lovely comfy pub.
  • God. Give the "Farmageddon" a wide berth, maybe the worst beer I've ever tried.
  • Fulcrum beer is pretty good. A little sweet, but well worth trying.
