If you're in Belfast go to the Sunflower. Simple as. It's one of those genuinely cool pubs. It's not trying to be cool, it just is. It has a brilliant selection of craft beers (this place gave up the mainstream brands a while back) and...More

Great beer and great staff. The beer garden is the crowning glory, it has its own outdoor pizza kitchen! Regular live folk and open Mic sessions and much more. One of Belfast's hidden gems.
