Hi,

Does anyone know of any pubs open in city on Christmas day?  We are just looking for somewhere to go for a drink or 3 for a couple of hrs, no family here so have to amuse ourselves somehow!

Cheers :)

It looks as though the Forum doesn't have a spokesperson of the Federation of the Retail Licensed Trade (FRLT) Northern Ireland as a member. That's just typical. They should  be organised and be like the chemists who publish a rota in the Tele every Saturday so that we all know which chemist is open over the weekend.

Chris, do you expect The Primrose to be open on Xmas Day?

I guess he's not going to answer. .I see your request on another thread was deleted as well. Coats

No Christmas Day opening.

Boxing Day ... Open late afternoon onwards but no meals

Thanks Chris. That's what I'd have expected. 

I've asked various people and no one says their local pub has been open in the past or will be opening  on Christmas Day.

This is an interesting clip from another website;  OK, it relates to the ROI:

Pub opening hours St Patrick’s Day  via Dublin South-West Blog March 15th, 2007 at 23:47

It seems other pubs in Ballynahinch are opening on Christmas Day evening.  Newtownbreda must indeed be "in the sticks" and not on the outskirts of Belfast.

Indeed you are Les.  I phoned The Whitefort not too far from us in Andersonstown and they are opened from 11.00 am for Christmas dinner and once the dinners are sorted, they are open to the pulic for drink, although they are fully booked out for dinner.  So I imagine most of the bars in Belfast will be open on Christmas Day, and plenty of them will be doing Christmas lunches, but I would imagine you would need to book pretty quickly  O0
Does my face look bothered?
