Had a very enjoyable meal. Good variety menu. Will hopefully be back soon.
We had an excellent time would highly recommend. Food was lovely, staff friendly and helpful.
Food and service was great. I would recommend this restaurant.
Service was especially good (waiter possibly called Mark.) Great choice on menu. Good atmosphere.
Great food service, Sunday Roast value for money, great to have live music on Sunday afternoon. Will definitely be back.
We went here upon recommendation from family members, we had lunch it was very nice. Next time we are in Belfast we will book again.
All good from the food and drink point of view, food was prompt and great, only bit of feedback would be way too much onion with the Korean chicken dish.
We had booked the cocktail experience for my birthday and our group really enjoyed the experience, this was driven by the value and the fact you could choose your own cocktails to make from a menu, however Paddy made the experience, he was easy to engage with and had lots of banter, this isn't easy when the others are drinking, well done Paddy.
Staff where all extremely helpful and friendly. Food was amazing, even by the fussy eaters standards. No pressure to move our seats, great entertainment and atmosphere.
This was my first time at the Northern whig and I wasn't disappointed the staff and service was amazing and the food was delicious we will definitely be back again
Really enjoyed the time there.
My experience here was exceptional.I would definitely have another meal here. Atmosphere is great
Pleasant and enjoyable experience, meal was well presented, tasty with decent sized portions. Staff friendly and attentive.
Just to say everyone enjoyed their food & service for such a big party excellent.. especially the head waitress who dealt with us..very professional so kindly pass that onto her. Apologies didn’t get her name
I booked the cocktail masterclass and two course dinner for Saturday 15th June for my best friend's hen night. Our masterclass started at 4pm in the upstairs bar. The other bridesmaids and I arrived a bit earlier to decorate the area for the night with some banners, balloons and napkins. All the other girls and the bride arrived and we got started with the masterclass. It was then that we noticed a woman and man who were not members of our party had come into the upstairs bar area and started to decorate the area for a 21st birthday party that was happening that evening at 8pm. All of us had placed our bags and jackets on tables and chairs and these people came around and decorated the tables containing our belongings and hen party decorations. The lady said she had been told she could come down from 4pm to decorate the area for the 21st birthday however our masterclass started at 4pm so I feel that it was unprofessional for her to have been told she could decorate the area whilst another party was happening at the same time. She could have been told she could decorate from 6pm at which point we would have moved downstairs for our meal. Myself and a few of the other girls felt awkward with the situation. I have to say though that the cocktails were excellent and the two guys behind the bar did a fantastic job. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. Overall it was a fun evening slightly dampened by the awkwardness in the upstairs bar.
Lovely food and brilliant service today. Will definitely be back.
Good food and wine, cocktails great and reasonably priced, staff very friendly.
From start to finish everything was great.Eould definitely go back again
Food was fantastic as always and service was friendly and efficient but alcoholic drinks were a bit pricey. £8 for gin and tonic and over £6 for a glass of wine!
Staff were great, food was delicious, perfect for after work drinks or catching up with friends
Great Sunday menu options
Food was incredible! Atmosphere lively..had a fab evening!
Great food and great service
Delicious food and cocktails ! Would have liked a specials menu on a Saturday. Had a two hour slot for lunch which was great and then went to the bar, disappointed that there was no seating with available seating upstairs but not allowed up hence our party leaving to go elsewhere
