Hercules is a busy city centre bar which serves pub food and is often a place to find traditional Irish music on Saturday nights.
The Hercules bar takes its name from Hercules Street, the previous name for Royal Avenue which itself was named after Sir Hercules Langford.
The bar was founded in 1875 by Patrick McGlade, who, with his brother Francis, went on to establish many other licensed premises in the city. The Hercules name dates back to 1901, when it was known as the Hercules Wine and Spirit Stores.
A new restauant 'Ooomami @ the 'Herc' hs just opened in this City Centre Venue

The staff are great and they are now holding the best reggae and ska night I have ever been to and the friendliest atmosphere ever
we tried here today after walking past it lots of times. The staff were friendly and the food was great: we had the curry and the burger and couldn't finish it. the waitress said it is a new chef. Either way, I would definitely recommend it
probably a good bar if you are Irish
The `Herc` has one of the best Irish trad sessions on a saturday night in Belfast. Some times over a dozen musicians take part and the atmosphere can be magic on some sat. nights. The bar-staff
Seen the menu board with a 'Classic 80's Menu' It looked good and I must sy I had an excellent homemade pate, followed by a great Chicken Maryland...no room for dessert, but they sounded great. Overall a very pleasing experienc. I will be back for one of those Knickerbocker Glories.
Recently visited 'The Herc' for something to eat in the upstairs restuarant on a Saturday, the food was tasty and good, pleasant staff and was reasonably priced. After my food i went downstairs to the public bar and it was just as good because i had good craic with the other customers and the bar man was nice. I reccommend you go there, especially on a Sunday for the cavery stlye meal.
Down to earth food, friendly staff and woth a visit. I got a leaflet and it was worth visiting for the Carvery style meal
Went for Lunch Saturday...Great food and great prices. The McDonald kind go with the burgers it seems. Fair enough
Ended up in the Herc with a group of guys on a Friday night and had a great time. The bar staff were friendly and, on the Saturday night, there was a session.
had my lunch in the herc today have to say sorry to see some of the staff away the food was just ok
was in this bar for lunch yesterday the staff were refreshing but the food was a disgrace the chips looked and tasted like mcdonalds
went to this bar today and have to say the waitresses were excellent but the food was disgusting the chips lookedlike they were razored!! and freezing cold!! oooonmammmaaa not
I just visited this pub while on a shopping trip, great lunch and best burger I have had in a long time. Good Luck with Ooomami at the 'HERC'
Dropped into this bar today and had what is proably the best burger I have ever had. The service was great, the presentation was superb and the price was just right. I think the restaurant was called Oomami. Well done and a great menu all round.
I recently visited the Hercules and was most pleased to have a wonderful lunch in this vibrant City Centre Bar
if your looking to b ignored and cold food this is the bar to go in to, the bar staff hav no respect for thier customers and certainly no how to make you feel unwelcome!!
cold food would not go again
I Went for a quiet lunch and it was good.... if you consider ordering food and not getting it good, i would recommend going to the hercules if you have hours to waste and like ordering your food 3 times!!
