Quite a busy place, bit away from tourist centres. Quite a large selection of local crafts which are sold in bottles for taek-away. Service has to get used to this new feature though turning me away initially, then got corrected by colleague. OK for next visit and drink.
Typical JDW located close to my hotel in south Belfast, had a good steak and a Devils Backbone American IPA, good value for money, you know what you get, no surprises here. Busy and almost filled at my short visit.
On the southern side of the city centre this Wetherspoon pub has an extensive ground floor area with a traditional pub feel to it, there’s no attempt here to make it look like an Irish bar. It stocks the usual set of ales although a huge pillar in front of the middle of the bar obscures one set of pumps from the other so it can take some jostling during busy hours to view the current range.
very popular place as well but very big so no problem finding a seat. lots of cask beer, i think i counted 15. a couple of ciders too. the food is decently price and well portioned. this place won’t win awards for being cozy or warming but the selection and proximity to where i was staying won me over.
Large pub with a decent selection of craft beer. Not the most charing pub, but ok food and friendly staff. Decent place to have some food and some real ale. Surprisingly cheap cask ale. The beer was excellent!
This pub is the frequently the best wetherspoons on Northern Ireland and has been voted the Northenr Ireland CAMRA branch pub of the year in 2010 and 2011. Up to eight beers on tap, along with draught ciders (either on tap or from box) and a selection of various bottled beers from around the world, this is certainly the best on-licensed venue in the North. It doesn’t have any of the character that is sometimes present in wetherspoons pubs, which is a pity, though during the twice annual beerfestival a "pour your own" stillage is often erected which allows customers unfamiliar with handpumps to see the difference. Good selection of beers from all over the UK, regularly featuring beers from Nortehrn Ireland breweries.
Usual selection of wetherspoons menu, with some specialised "traiditional Northern Ireland" dishes.
Reccomended for the variety and quality of beers available on tap.
