  1. Beer Garden

    Beer Garden

    The bar is home to one of the largest dedicated beer gardens in Belfast and the first in the heart of the Cathedral Quarter.

  2. Food


    Local, bold, simple food. The proof is in the pudding, drop in and see what we have to offer. Specials on daily which change seasonally with our local ingredients.

    Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so we’ve worked hard to bring you some beautiful dishes inspired by contemporary recipes, but still paying homage to the classics.

    Our lunch menu is filled with mouth-watering local ingredients and recipes which are prepared to perfection. It’s a no-brainer when you’re deciding where to dine out after checking out our menu.

    The National loves a good Sunday brunch! So we’ve put together our favourites from our breakfast and lunch menus and combined them to offer an incredible selection of dishes for you to choose from.

    Menus can be found HERE!

    We offer innovative and awe-inspiring cocktail creations, strong flavoursome coffee and a range of local craft beers and ales. Also, don’t forget the Bubbles!
