We had a lovely lunch, it was a wee bit expensive but overall a lovely experience and we would recommend the bar to friends and family. Such a pity you have to close for 4 weeks but we hope to revisit when this lock down is over. Good Luck.

Had three visits here in 10 days, fabulous food each time (reallytasty and great portions), excellent service and lovely staff. The place itself is gorgeous and comfortable. Unfortunately, we had some noisy elderly gents beside us who obviously had been imbibing for a while but, that aside, we had a great time and cant wait for it to reopen. I expect we will be regular customers. Thanks!!

Lovely location not far out of Central Belfast. Very rural feel to the place with a quaint, welcoming and cosy atmosphere. Staff were really friendly and went out of their way to cater for an elderly guest in the party. Very good value and the food was very good. Would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this pub/restaurant and we will certainly be back very soon.

1st visit we are two pensioners and we were shown to a table next to a party of 4-6adults and 5-6children I stated that I didn’t feel safe and we were moved to a table opposite the entrance to the kitchen with all the guests walking past us still felt very unsafe

After all the great reviews I was disappointed in the quality of the food. I had what amounted to a rather expensive fish supper, (haddock and chips). The fish was nice enough although the batter could have been a little crisper. the chips on the other hand were almost inedible, they were over crisp and hard.
The pavlova was poorly presented with the fresh fruit looking like it was thrown on the plate, no finesse.
The staff were polite and service was prompt. The surroundings were no different from the previous owner . The seating was very comfortable. Overall disappointing.

Went to Bob's on Saturday past for a few socially distanced afternoon drinks in their new beer garden, which is very well set up with ample space between tables and quick service from the waiting staff when drinks were needed - much better than another venue I was at recently where there were long delays waiting to order drinks as we could no longer go to the bar ourselves. We live locally outside Belfast and would normally have headed into the city, but Bob's makes for a lovely rural setting close to South Belfast and a refreshing change from the bars in town - I'd fully urge people in the city to get out and try it.

We had dinner booked in the restaurant at Bob's that evening also, so our group moved in there to dine and everyone was very impressed with their food. The portions were generous (my BBQ ribs main came with chicken wings and other sides, and probably could have fed 2 people) and the bill very reasonable. Glad to see Bob's is going from strength to strength under new owners in these trying times, and we will definitely be back soon.

Had a meal at beginning of this week. From start to finish everything was like clockwork . Social distancing in place, and felt very safe awaits at same time relaxed.

Staff very friendly. We got the 2 course meal and drink for £20 each and it was excellent value and delicious .

Highly recommend and good to see despite change of ownership it continue not only to flourish but to improve. It's great you can now bring children so families can enjoy the opportunity to eat together.

Food absolutely outstanding and chef adapted meal to suit needs which was amazing! However being in the vulnerable category and with 2 children shielding at home we did not feel very safe with none of the waiting staff wearing masks or distancing. One waitress said and I quote “I’ve been on from 11am and there’s no way I’m wearing a mask to get spots on my face” this I found very insulting and ignorant being a nurse myself and wearing a mask for 14hr shifts given the pandemic I would want to protect people. A real shame.
