The best wee bar in East Belfast. I have lived abroad for 30 years and still look forward to my yearly visit home and my nights in the Cosy with the lads. Alec the barman is a credit to all in the profession

I cannot recommend this bar highly enough!

A warm and friendly atmosphere and an even warmer welcome. Junior, Alec and the rest of the staff are always friendly and go out of their way to make customers feel at home.

I have visited this bar on a few occasions and always look forward to my next visit.

A small friendly bar. Prices not too bad. Could do with some “up market” wines tho. A good Port is also missing

I've been to the Cosy on a number of occasions and found it to be very friendly, welcoming and a really good night! I look forward to going again.

It's not the best bar in East Belfast but it's certainly not the worst either.

No, still amazed at the poor reviews.

Must be someone with a grudge. The Cosy will be one of the biggest things I'll miss when it's time to go home

Cosy bar is a basically one big family. Everyone knows everyone, always there to help, couldnt ask for anything better.

Have grew up around alec and all the regulars. Its like a second family.

Bad reviews are just people who werent nice enough to be accepted into the family.

I have been to the bar on a number of occasions found it very welcoming, with very friendly bar staff who are always willing to help.

The other customers of the bar give the traditional welcome by most in NI, friendly, helpful and full of laughter.

My favourite local in East Belfast - have only ever been greeted with friendliness by the locals since we moved here only a couple of months ago. Can't understand the poor reviews.

If there was ever a bar with a misleading name, then this is it. A dreadful place.

Submitted by Wolfie on 20 November 2008

This is a small local bar, it is a place where all the customers are regulars, and everyone knows each other, if a stranger walks in - the whole place seems to go silent and look at them, a few years ago the front door was permanantly locked and you had to press a doorbell to be let in, if you were not known you wouldn't even get through the front door, this bar is more like a private drinking club than a public house.
