The Kitchen bar is a superb 'old school' bar in Belfast with a touch of class. Great pub grub with a superb atmosphere where half full or bursting to the rafters. A perfect blueprint for a traditional but classy public house.

Had the cajun burger. Was lovely. Very filling. The service was very good. Quite busy. Would recommend for lunch for a quick dinner

Probably the most visited bar when in Belfast as it is positioned perfectly for dinner afterwards in either Wagamama or Pizza Express. Guinness is always good and being able to watch football at the same time is a bonus.

The decor is not fantastic, there's nothing wrong with it but it feels dated when there are so many more exciting places in Belfast BUT in saying that- the staff were... More

Went in on a busy Saturday afternoon for a couple of vino and some food. We were shown to our table in about 5 minutes even though the place was very busy.

Nice dinner, decent service, lovely beer. The pub is very nice, the service was good but I noticed that not all staff was as helpful and smiley as the girl who looked after us. I had a burger which was ok and my friend had a tasty salmon.
