Brilliant night with brilliant service! There was 19 of us and every single person said that the food was lovely and so did I! Service was quick with no issues or delays, staff were fantastic! 2nd year in a row choosing Northern Whig as our Christmas dinner spot and I can say that it will most definitely be the spot for next year! Thank you all for such a great experience from the booking to the actual dinner!

Great feedback on the Turkey&Ham, Hake, Veggie Trio and Chicken Supreme. The Beef main course feedback was that it was tasty but a wee bit tough. Although assured by staff it was vegetarian, the Broth appeared to have bits of chicken in and was reported to taste "chickeny", although the vegetarian said she might just be paranoid about this. We all agreed that the portions were huge and the general quality was great. The service was stellar! We chatted quite a lot at the start and I really appreciated the serving staff encouraging us to get on with ordering food to keep to our time slot. I've never had such good service for a larger group in Belfast, they're doing a fantastic job.

My new fiancé and I had dinner in The Northern Whig last night. When we arrived, the staff heard from a little bird that we recently got engaged and they made us feel so welcome and special. Food was exceptional, as was the service. Can't wait to be back guys. PJ & Mags x

We had a lovely meal to celebrate a special birthday. We did have a problem with one of our main courses being over salted, however this with dealt with without any fuss. A complimentary drink was offered but refused (designated driver). Without us asking the main course was removed from our bill. We will definitely eat there again and would highly recommend. Please don’t remove the seafood pasta from your menu 🙂

Service was pleasant but a bit slow for the amount of customers in the restaurant. Portions were very generous. Chicken was a bit salty. Otherwise enjoyed our meal. Will be back again.
