The Pound was the best music pub in the 70s.

The main problem was the state of the bogs - obviously a common and long running problem in Belfast bars. :)

Yep.  I spent many Saturday afternoons in The Pound.  Great entertainment.

I like the Cutter's Wharf, especially in the summertime.

Bars I enjoyed were Whites, Morning Star, Kelly's Cellars, Red Barn, The Pavilion, the Pound and the Club Bar near to Q.U.B.
 BUT, IMHO, THE BEST BAR IN bELFAST IS THE ONER WHERE YOU HAVE THE BEST CRAIC AND CAMARADERIE-wherever it be in the City.

We would have the odd work function upstairs in the Morning Star, the weemin don't like it so much as it is not reefeened enough for them, preferring to do luncheon in the likes of Malmaison or the Merchant (and believe me it's far from luncheon in the Merchant some of them were reared !). For me the Morning Star does the best steamed mussels and the best steak in Belfast  O0

seldom been in there- albeit it is 75 yards from where I was born...Errigle Inn- my parents knew Tommy and Rose Mc Gurran who owned it and lived not too far away in the Rosetta area.

I know those who rave about the food in the Morning Star.

Years and years ago when I worked in Churchill House we sometimes went there for lunch - then it was a 'spit on the floor' type of saloon!  But I always found the food to be good - same as the Kitchen Bar, the Globe and of course my haunt at the time, The Mermaid! - - All our yesterdays eh?  ::)

Now I'm never in the Town Centre so have lost out on all the good pubs to go to eat in.  Plus as ya get older Ali, us aul weemin are lucken more for a comfortable seat rather than plenty till ate!  ;) :D

Ach Sally Ann, oul weemin, yer cookie ! The Kitchen Bar now as far as I'm concerned is nowhere near .as good as the old one as far as  ambience and grub is concerned. I'm a country gulpin originally where was the Mermaid ?
