The Morning Star - Award Winning Gastro Pub is one of Belfast’s most historic and picturesque pubs dating back to 1810 and run by the McAlister family since 1989, most recently crowned RAI Best Gastro Pub 2019. Showing live domestic and international rugby, horse racing daily, boxing & golf events.
Safe to say we have one of the most exciting pub menus serving food until 10pm daily with the likes of pan friend kangaroo, emu and crocodile. If you fancy something a little less exotic, then fear not. Our ethos is farm to fork, buying prize winning beef and lamb from local farmers, and top sales along with raising some of our own and sourcing as close to home as possible. Our in-house master butcher ensuring your steak is the best on the block and responsible for handmaking our burgers and sausages daily. The seafood is fresh daily and steaks including those cut to order and 1.5kg Tomahawks feature on the menu. We serve a range of craft local beers both bottled and draught, stock fine Irish Whiskeys & have an exciting menu of local gins.
