    Dined here on St patricks day. The servers were all incredibly friendly and accommodating, and the food was delicious. I got the beef burger and my partner got the steak sandwich. A real city centre gem with a lovely warm atmosphere.

    We had been in the bar the day before and the service was fantastic so decided to come for food the next day and we were not disappointed. The young girl serving us was great with my three year old son and let him choose which drink he wanted with his meal. Next time I’m in Belfast I will definitely return!

    This our first time in Fountain Lane restaurant and it won’t be our last. The food was amazing we a shared salt and chilli chicken starter and I can only say the dish was very tasty with a zingy slaw and excellent chilli dip. For mains my wife had the chicken burger that was tender and full of flavour I had the the beef burger that arrived as a portion of braised brisket on top of a beef patty with onion lettuce and tomato absolutely beautiful Highly recommend if you want to eat first class food at a reasonable price

    Its a lovely old pub but I would say a tad underloved. The food was nice but not amazing and price wise it was OK but not cheap. Some of the staff were a bit fed up looking tbh.

    I have sent email regarding our experience.Only my children were with us we would have left immediately.Customer service was non existent &in your managers own words I was lied to(Alan).I have known this pub/restaurant from Croft inn days & standards have severely dropped.Hospitality industry is suffering & to go out for a family meal & be treated like this by your staff is very unprofessional.

    Food was great but service very poor. Had to ask to order a drink twice and had to ask to order food. There was only 4 tables taken so not busy. Downstairs seemed to have more life.

    Arrived at the restaurant and we were seated and given menus straight away but 10 mins later our order hadnt been taken and we hadnt even been asked if we wanted a drink but people who arrived after us were brought their wine. I went and got a waitress to take our order, we waited another 10 mins and still nothing. I would understand if it was busy but it was pretty quiet with empty tables, now i know why this was one of the only places where we could get a booking. Terrible service!!

    Originally booked Sunday roast menu for 3 ppl 3 courses for £17.95 on 07/11/2022. Only to be told this was unavailable on Sunday 27/11/2022 when we arrived. New all day menu only available. We were asked to confirm our booking on Saturday 26/11/2022 with no mention of the new menu & that the Sunday roast menu was no longer available. Eventually ordered ,mine & my son in laws arrived (turkey/ham) extremely dry, cold & sparse gravy. My daughter had quite a lengthy wait on her meal(burger) had to remind staff we were still waiting on a meal. Asked for a gravy boat, again a long wait & had to ask again as a reminder. Plates not cleared. I went to bar to ask to pay the bill. Told to sit back down & the bill would be brought over. Nobody approached table with bill. Had to ask again as they'd forgotten.
