A Selection of Reviews of Whites Tavern
White's Tavern first opened in 1630, claims the title of Belfast's oldest pub. The small, unassuming building is tucked away in an alley and can be hard to find, but persistent explorers can reward themselves with a drink in one of the city's most venerable institutions. There's no pomp and circumstance here, just well-poured pints and a quiet, rustic atmosphere.
Whites Tavern calls itself Belfast's oldest and there is no reason to dispute the 1630 opening date. Traditional in every sense of the word, Whites is the perfect pub to have a pint of Guinness while sitting by the fire listening to an impromptu band belt out old school Irish music. This is the real deal, a locals hangout without pretention and certainly no tourist cheese.
