Bar was ok, and the food was ok for the price. I suspect this bar is used more by locals, as there seemed to be plenty there for Sunday lunch drinks. Not really a beautiful pub, but probably more authentic to day to day belfast life.

Had a band on upstairs which was good followed by a DJ. Bar prices where quite expensive. Could be a great night but too many sleazy guys which spoiled it a bit
