This is an amazing little place. Owned by the National Trust, It serves really good ales. Made up of "Little Booths", Very quaint. Some very nice carvings, tiles and mouldings to look at while having a pint under "Gas Light", yes Gas Light

Love this Saloon. It has great woodwork in the Saloon and a nice dining room upstairs. Ask someone to explain the symbol of the crown as you walk in the front door. This place is across the street from the Europa Hotel and Bus Station.

Food was delicious and traditionally Irish. Pub is quirky with booths and fantastic architecture. A definite must-do in Belfast!

They say that Guinness tastes better in Ireland and does not travel - they are right and what better place to sip on one than this historic Pub

The Crown is a must see pub for people interested in interiors, Victoriana and love a drink. It's a busy place on a Friday night, if you can get one of the booths, you're into a winner! Friends said the building is maintained by the National Trust. They've done a beautiful job!
