I'm a Catholic married to a Protestant from the area. Her father has drunk in this pub since forever, but I was always scared sh*tless as I'd heard it was full of sectarianism. Eventually upon being asked for a pint with my father-in-law I gave in and chanced it - and it was magic! Even though I have an Irish name when I was asked it the punters didn't care and made me feel very welcome. Bit of banter, but of craic! I go at least once a month now - never had any bother other than a bit of ribbing during Celtic matches lol. Friendly staff, decent beer. Very traditional.

Whenever I visit Belfast I always pop in for a pint or two. I've always been made welcome. A great traditional inn.

I've been drinking in this bar for almost 30 years and it's never changed but I think that's what the customers want - a traditional Belfast bar which serves the community.

This is a horrible place, it has a nasty atmosphere, I couldn't wait to leave - no thank you !

An untidy and unclean bar, it was full of over-weight men with huge beer-bellies, the atmosphere was crude and coarse, with a touch of menace. The pint of lager I bought was served in a dirty glass and it tasted flat, bad language was being used openly, I also heard some sectarian opinions being expressed by male and female drinkers. MY ADVICE WOULD BE TO STAY WELL CLEAR OF THIS BAR.

This place had filthy toilets, dirty glasses and tables. The staff didnt seem to care and service was poor. There were also at least six under age drinkers in the bar two of whom were very drunk.I would avoid this place like the plague.

Quite a quaint place. Very basic. Good atmosphere here. the locals sitting around the bar having a good bit of banter with the barman, I liked it here and the band played during the afternoon and the karaoke later that nite. I am a visitor from OZ and my friend who lives near by took me here. I really enjoyed myself!
