Food and service lovely but please turn the heating on it’s very cold and draughty. Downstairs toilet needs cleaned - it smells. This is my third visit and it’s the same each time. Please sort it out.

Was a lovely meal, good music but was a bit too loud, service was a bit slow as it was Valentine’s Day and the last place was busy but our servers were very friendly and welcoming. The drinks were great and we really appreciated the Prosecco that we got on arrival, overall a great experience and will definitely go again.

Don’t waste your time much nice places close by ! Shockingly bad service Disappointing!
Table booked was running late so we waited in the bar for 30 minutes. Vegan menu and food was good service very slow rude and I’ve never experienced such rudeness.
After waiting on reserved table for 30 mins we had starters and mains only to be asked to vacate our table before even being offered a desert menu ! Very rude very pompous front of house slow service and the first thing to help would be a change in career for the manageress !!!
Will NEVER be back

I would recommend Henry's, the food, service and atmosphere was good but be aware that you could get a table in the middle of the bar. There was a football match on so was noisy. We were seated opposite the big screen so had people standing around us while eating and couldn't chat with friends properly. For me, as having friends over from Scotland that haven't seen in a long time, would have been better in a quieter restaurant. Should have researched better!

Brilliant atmosphere. Staff were really friendly and kept the kitchen open for us as we were running late. Live band was brilliant. We definitely felt like we had a nice Irish experience

The food and service were excellent and it’s a gorgeous bar. I enjoyed the live music but sometimes it was just a tad loud for a Sunday afternoon which meant it was hard to converse while dining.

Very disappointed in the lack of food suitable for coaelics. My mum wanted to leave but settled instead for chicken n potatoes n veg.I think this shud be addressed. My food was good and was happy but it put a dampner on the lunch overall.

We come home two times a year and have always had lovely meals in and around Belfast, this was not good my chicken was very dry and tasted burnt. My wife had pie but the base of the pastry was like rock. We have had food here before and it was lovely. I will say the staff were lovely and very apologetic and offered alternatives and did take the cost of my meal off the bill.

Great food and service. Atmosphere is noisier than we thought, can’t really talk over a meal if that’s what you are looking for. Music is good though if that’s what you want, very lively and plenty of people about. I would say better for drinks than a quiet meal

It was a great restaurant with a live singer. The food was fantastic, we had the local bread starter. My husband had the roasted chicken, which was delicious, juicy, and flavorful. The Goliath burger was nothing less than the name. It was a Goliath. It was delicious to match as well as the fries. Great place to eat!

Food was so so good. Great space.
Biggest let down are the staff. Dont seem very happy to help or even to be there. Not very attentive and kind of feel disorganised.

We went for dinner at 730 and felt more like a bar than restaurant. The food was good but nothing to write home about. The musicians called Fairly Local were excellent.

Having moved to Belfast in November 2018 I have used both Henry’s and Jail house. Great food and value as well a decent beer.
Luv the big screen football and fact that when you book a table it’s always ready and available.... fantastic atmosphere in the evening with live music 10/10

Great pub/restaurant off a little side alley close to city hall. Comfortable, cozy furnishings, nice menu, great food, great service. We were on a land tour of Ireland and in Belfast for the day. Wanting some local Irish fare for lunch between tour stops, used OpenTable to find this great pub. We throughly enjoyed the food, the service and the ambience. Would definitely return if through Belfast again in the future.

A lovely location for a meal on our first night in Belfast - the city centre was quiet but then we entered Joy's Entry off one of the main shopping streets and felt like we'd arrived! Great vibe, live music giving us the authentic feel and sense of location. Service issues probably because they seemed a little bit understaffed.
