The Morning Star

One of Belfast’s most historic pubs and RAI Best Gastro Pub 2017, the Morning Star dates back to 1854 and has been run by the McAlister family since 1989.

Housed in a listed building, in a narrow entry between Ann Street and High Street, The Morning Star is a must-see in Belfast. Serving traditional pub grub in the downstairs bar, the upstairs dining experience is for the more adventurous diner.

It’s safe to say it’s one of the most eclectic pub menus we’ve ever seen. You can eat pan-fried kangaroo and crocodile as well as emu, ostrich and bison.

But if you fancy something a little less exotic, fear not. Their in- house butcher makes the sausages. The seafood is fresh every day and the steaks are up to 24 oz. It’s the only place we know where Oysters Kilpatrick are served and they are real champions of local brews.
