Called in here for a pint of Guinness ! Delicious!!! I think here served the best of them all during our times in Belfast! It does have the feel of a local pub when you first walk in and there were plenty of regulars which adds to its charm! There were also plenty of visitors and patrons of all ages!... More

Called in for a bit of pub grub and a quite pint after work, asked the barman could I use his facilities and was bluntly told no its for customers only and it says on the door!! Went elsewhere to spend my hard earned cash won't be back......

Good pub grub at a reasonable price. Portions were massive...if not a little too big. Would have given it 5 but the missus had a beanburger and it was very floury but other than that...great pub food and very friendly staff. Would recommend.

This Fountain might never win any food awards, but the portions were plentiful and the food provided solid fuel for shopping the rest of the day. The service though is its strongest point, so overall I would happily recommend here.

I go to this pub every week. They have a bunch of drink packs that are very affordable. The staff is very friendly too. They have a fireplace and every week they have some kind of live music/karaoke event. For food I only tried the chili nachos which you can ask with a pint for 6£. Definitely recommend it!

On our family visit to Belfast for New Year we went looking for somewhere nice to eat on the night of our arrival. We came across this venue which appeared to be a nice place to eat after looking at the menu. We proceeded up the stairs and were greeted by a lovely male waiter to trued to get us... More

As above food good. Had lasagna and chips and friends had scampie and side and chicken strips and salad. No complains and less than £30 for 3 people including drinks. Good service and friends staff. And down stairs in bar do good drink promos 😁
