Ended up coming here with friends when I was over from the States for a month. The staff were really friendly and interesting to talk to. A great selection of draught beer and the first real traditional authentic Irish bar I was in when over there. Loved the cosy fire and genuine antiques about the bar and the band playing that night were awesome. Definitely will be back, can't speak more highly of the place, a great spot!

Great atmosphere, great music, bar staff are all lovely and really friendly. Drinks are average and it's definately not the cheapest place around. Still good craic is always had in it, if youre a student you can't not go ;)

A great wee spot for a bit of banter. Its got an unbelievable selection of wines and beers and always something happening about the bar to keep punters entertained. To be honest i've moved back home from the U.S a year ago and haven't left this place. Has the best barstaff in Belfast, enough said.

i like it because its class (loads of women and loads of drunk yobs like myself and lethal music) but i resent the fact that i must have spent over 10 000 there in the last 4 years!

Hatfield.... Best place ever!!.. great craic, great drink, great music :)...!! and for those who say is a "hole" clearly must not get out much!!

Prices where average but there wasn't much craic. The atmosphere was dead and on both nights I was there the place was underattended and over staffed. Maybe ok for a quick one but not somewhere worth seeking for a night out.
