    The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. Staff were very friendly, welcoming and accommodating. Plenty of screens to watch the sports without it being too intrusive. Music in the beerhall was a bit loud but the singer was still fab none the less. Overall a great place to spend your day.

    Great Sunday lunch. Was impressed with the waiter who seemed to be waiting all the tables on his own - without breaking a sweat and a had a great attitude! Good to find another place in Belfast offering great Sunday lunches.

    Arrived for our reservation, waited 35 minutes to even look at a menu (I had to go to the bar and ask for one). Then another 25 minutes until someone came to take our order. My partner had went to the bar a twice to ask for a drink order to be taken and ended up just going to the bar when we wanted a drink (a simple glass of water). Restaurant was freezing and very busy. Food was nice when it eventually came (another 30 minutes) but very small portions for what you are paying for. In the place for over 2 hours for a fish and chips- would not recommend.

    It was absolute chaos in that place. There were far too many people allowed in, if there had have been a fire, there would have been a lot of people killed, not from the fire but from the stampede to get out! It shouldn’t be allowed. I will never be back. It was like sardines in a tin. Disgusting!

    Very slow service. We were left waiting a long time to get a menu when we arrived. Once we ordered the food it arrived quick enough but the steaks were cold. The rest of the food was as amazing as always. We sat waiting a long time for a server after dinner to order dessert and more drinks and in the end we had to pay the bill and leave because it was taking so long and we were under pressure with time due to our shift working patterns. In all it took 1 hour 40 just to eat the main course and pay the bill.

    The choice on the menu was very limited. We all ordered the roast beef. After about 15 mins we were told the beef was finished which was very poor as it was only 3pm The ladies toilets were a disgrace. Absolutely filthy and the sanitary bins were spilling out with used sanitary pads. I don’t think they had been cleaned from the Saturday night. I was extremely disappointed as we were hosting family from England and Porto who had never been before.

    The place was great, with great food and friendly staff. However, when we were there, it was a bit too noisy with loud music and not a cozy dinner environment. The fish in the Fish & Chips was amazing, very fresh. The burger was good also.

    We booked a reservation for dinner and showed up early for a drink only to find out the dining room was closed for renovations. Nobody let us know of the closure and our reservation remained active online. The bartender tried to get us a reservation at Henry’s, but couldn’t. We ended up having to wait to get a seat there. Poor communication all around by White’s Tavern. The pub was nice for a drink, but dinner was another story…

    Overall, our experience was good. Food was great and it’s a cool building/well decorated. Our only complaints were one, that it was quite difficult to figure out where to go to check in for our reservation (however, this was the case at many places in Ireland). And two, the experience from start to finish took two hours. There were only two of us and we ordered two beers, two entrees, and one dessert. We were often waiting for our server to come back around and eventually went up to the bar to pay for our meal because we were ready to go. Everyone and everything was very nice, it just took a long time. So, if you’re wanting to hang out at a restaurant for a while, we would recommend this place. But, if you’re wanting to hop around from place to place like we were, this may not be the spot for you.

    The ambience was fabulous - the staff were amazing but the Thai curry had no flavour whatsoever! (3 of 4 had this dish and all agreed) It wouldn’t put me off though as the friendliness of staff made up for it. We’ll be back for sure!

    Best roast beef dinner I've had in a long time. The beef was slightly pink and melted in my mouth. Veggies all cooked to perfection. Not usually a fan of a Yorkshire pudding but these weren't the normal bland rubbery type. And that gravy was fabulous. As always the service was excellent. The staff here are so friendly and attentive ,nothing is too much trouble. Cant wait to go back. I believe they have a new chef called brendan, keep up the good work 👏

    There are lots of entrances. We ended up in the old pub downstairs which was not where we needed or wanted to be. We finally got led up to the restaurant part which was fantastic. Maps doesn't lead you to the restaurant entrance but the experience and food was so good!!

    The place was strange to say the least! While parts of it were lively with a great atmosphere, where we were was dreary and a bit like being in someone's house who doesn't particularly like you or want you there. The food was fine but nothing spectacular. The male server was excellent and very helpful and made us feel very welcome but the female server was not great. She spent more time on her phone than working. I'd say this place is excellent for a few drinks and craic but go somewhere else for food. Especially Sunday Lunch.

    Slow service to begin with as staff seemed to be all trying to cover everywhere, with no real direction. Had indicated on booking what a very special occasion this was but the staff had not been made aware. Food average. Excellent music but way too loud for a dining experience.

    food was lovely, but as a restaurant it is terribly loud. it also serves as a bar and there were 2 different singers in the evening. even though we were sitting as far as possible from the music we were right underneath a speaker, which made talking to each other impossible. we were a group of friends catching up after a long time and the evening was ruined by not being able to talk to each other unless we were shouting, it was so loud. In the end we gave up and once dinner was over we left to go somewhere else. We asked on 3 separate occasions to have it turned down but they wouldn't do so. As a pub, yes the the music would be fine but as a restaurant it's very poor if you can't even talk to the person you're with.

    Have been several times for food and never disappoints. The restaurant was very busy so did take a while for the food to come out, but it was worth the wait. Recommend the crispy buttermilk chicken with peppercorn sauce, very tasty. Great atmosphere and very friendly staff.

    Didn’t actually serve dining food past 6pm despite us booking the food menu Easter Sunday evening on open table. Left us stuck for Easter Sunday evening dinner last minute and having to find somewhere else on the spot after a flight into Belfast. Advertising needs changed. Have since checked opening hours and menu (3 months on) and despite whites response saying hours were changed and advertising updates to me on below response- all remains the same.

    20 mins for a drink to be served, should have more than one bar man on. Food came and order wasnt correct, chips cold on both meals, steak over cooked, when ordering steak it should be served with real chips not frozen french fries. Wouldn't recommend and won't be back.
