Took my brother for his birthday, lunchtime food and drink. They showed football on multiple screens too which was great. Wasn't overly noisy as it was early. The vibe was great, workers were lovely and good craic to chat with. Food was very good for the price. Amazing selection of beers. Would definitely return!

We change the booking from 2 to 6 people which was easy enough to do. Only one issue, my dish (salmon on bed of noodles) had to be sent back twice as it wasn't cooked properly. I ended up choosing the fish and chips, which was lovely. The staff dealt with the issue very well and we didn't have to pay for the meal, plus we were given a round of drinks for free. Overall the experience was a good one. We just happened to be there when the N.Ireland football match was on, which was a bit distracting, however the The booked entertainment was great.

Unfortunately had to wait a little while for our table which was under a speaker.
However the staff were love and very accommodating of our 9yr old. He devoured the adult margarita pizza! The chicken and chorizo pie was delicious with fantastic pastry and the husband really enjoyed the special tacos.
The live music was great just too loud for the little man.
Would definitely go back as a couple maybe not with our son.

We booked for my mother's birthday and it was an amazing experience from the start. My mother even got a free desert as it was her birthday,
Restaurant was clean and staff were friendly, nothing seemed to be too much for them. Only thing is the two rounds of daiquiris we ordered tasted different to each other. But overall everything was very nice

Staff were very helpful with my booking and pre ordering food. Staff on the night were fab and couldn’t have been more accommodating. Colleagues want to make it a regular. Great live music too.

There was a young lady who made us feel very welcome, brought us to our seat and made sure we had everything we wanted even though the place was very busy already and she was rushed off her feet. I wanted to let her know we appreciated her service but when I went to give her a tip and express our appreciation she had finished work. I'd like her boss to know she was a star and a big asset to his/her establishment. We do go to other restaurant bars throughout the city but we will definitely go back to Pugh Ugly's again

I booked through opentable, got the email confirmation etc, but when I went to the bar, they had no record of the booking. To be fair to the staff they went out of their way to accommodate and we got a table about 30mins later than I had booked, but the whole opentable booking experience was rubbish.
Fodd, staff etc was good though.

Somewhere to go for Pub grub, that you don’t mind sitting amongst people just in for drinks. Very noisy so hard to hear, however the food was lovely and the service good.

Ordered half a dozen starters between 4 for a quick bite to eat before a show at the Limelight. Every dish was delish - great bar food and great service.

It was nice food but much more of a bar and less of a restaurant than I thought we be on OpenTable.
Very friendly staff but quite hard to get seated at our reserved table as they were very busy.
Nice food and decent service but definitely not restaurant enough for a date night lol.

In Belfast for the weekend so did a bit of research on where to go and booked a table at Pug Uglys for dinner through opentable before noon for that evening. Arrived to find that none of the staff knew of the booking and didn't know what had happened. The staff member we dealt with was very apologetic but I have now read that a few other people had similar experience with bookings not being honoured so there is obviously an issue with this at Pug Uglys. The music was also insanely loud for 7.15pm in a bar full of diners. It took us over an hour wandering around Belfast to find somewhere else with a table due to it being the weekend after Valentine's Day. I'd booked a table to avoid that exact situation. I would not return to Pug Uglys or recommend it to anyone.

Asked for a table near the TV for the rugby, got the only table in the place that didn't have a view of a TV, cider on tap was flat, no bottled alska left and the last bottle even though it was sealed was half empty by the time the bar man set it up...

We had a lovely meal. When I went to bar to get my bill I was told by 3 different members of staff that the area I was standing us wasn't a serving area. I explained to each one I just wanted my bill. I finally got it when the waitress who had served us came over. Not pleasant bar staff.

I don’t know wether pug uglys or open table are to blame but even though our booking was confirmed by email we were texted by pug uglys an hour before we were due to leave to tell us that “although we TRIED to book a table, they were fully booked and could not take us” so our night was ruined.....

My mum, sister and myself had the most amazing meal and experience at pug uglys on Friday night. Our waitress was outstanding (wish we had got her name) .. she even got me and my mum amazing non -alcoholic mojitos made which were to ‘die for!’ Our food was delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed our night we’ve recommended it to all our friends!!
