About Cuffs Bar & Grill
In July 2016, Crumlin Road Gaol opened its new licensed restaurant Cuffs Bar & Grill. The new restaurant is a welcome addition to Belfast's blossoming restaurant scene and the North Belfast hospitality industry.
Opened in the NI Year of Food and Drink, which celebrates the quality and creativity in the industry, the new restaurant at Crumlin Road Gaol prides itself on keeping it local. Head Chef Damian Blaney ensures that all ingredients are fresh and sourced locally. Damian and his team make the best of the seasons and have worked hard to create a menu which includes something for all.
The service was extremely slow. We were in the restaurant for 1hr 45mins - it took us about 40 mins to get mains and then a further 30 minutes to get a second round of drinks after our mains were cleared. I had pork belly which was very poor, extremely fatty and overcooked, served with limp spinach and mushrooms in a sauce that was like water. I sent this back and to their credit got a replacement main straight away, the chicken tenders (which were just fine). Was still however charged for the pork belly which was more expensive. Overall I enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant but found the food and service very much lacking, which was unfortunate. It took us so long to get cocktails after our means that we had to rush them so we would make our tour of the jail on time. I won't be going back.
We had to ask twice for are drinks which we had ordered. Staff seemed a bit confused. Food was lovely
Absolutely beautiful food, will definitely be back.
Went for dinner with friends before the jail of horror night and the food was absolutely amazing as was the service and atmosphere. Really surprised as didn't really know much about the restaurant but will definitely return!!
Food was excellent, service very poor.
Brill restaurant. Love the layout, the chairs are lovely and food is excellent. Def one of best meals I’ve had in years
I found the food to be excellent we really enjoyed it and the staff were nice and very friendly.I would highly recommend it to anyone and we shall be returning in the future maybe even take in show.
Food was beautiful and will definitely be back soon
Already recommended to many,but with a warning. If the kids are drinking coke or sprite etc. The tiny bottles are over £2 each I think the kids meal should include drinks,even if from a 2ltr bottle. Love the place..........
A lovely place for dinner and good value for money. The staff are very helpful and polite. Have eaten here on 3 different occasions and will definitely be going again ☺☺
Very enjoyable experience and will definitely return
The carbonara was the nicest I have ever tasted.
Bought a voucher for the restaurant for my Ma and Da before seeing the Johnny Cash show.They loved it.The food was excellent and they had a great night.Well recommended.

The staff forgot to bring all my wifes meal had to ask twice for it very disappointed on that service Regards Tommy Tourish
Very enjoyable lunch, we will definitely be back
First time there and enjoyed it , will return 😀
Elaine was very welcoming. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and she looked after us brilliantly on the night. The food was amazing.
I had the turkey and ham dinner it was beautiful, my 12 year old had the chicken strips and she is very fussy eater, she said best chicken she has ever had, my husband and mum both had salmon and said it was delicious, we will mist certainly be back for more.
Lovely decor and staff were friendly and helpful. Food was delicious and great value for money. Understandable but disappointing that there was no roast beef or turkey and ham left. Will have to return another Sunday to hopefully sample them. Definitely plan a return trip :)
Great meal in super surroundings, surprised it wasn't busier! Excellent service, thank you!
Lovely food and great service
Sunday roast really good size portions & well liked by all (more gravy would of been nice & must been due to ice in glass every1 soft drink went flat almost immediately ) restaurant was pretty quiet at time we were there so no atmosphere other than people talking .. Nice staff & would recommend re-booked go back
lovely food great service good value for money
Lovely room , nicely furnished but only had the one course as we were travelling home to England & limited for time but the service was very efficient ..food was delicious ..had a wobbly table but a lady soon sorted it out for us. It was Tuesday so it was only £2 a pint for Guinness which was very good too.. Would highly recommend ..
