The Morning Star bar and restaurant is a must for anyone wanting to see a living museum piece of old Belfast. The Morning Star is easily identified by the superb Victorian sign hanging from a grandly exuberant iron bracket jutting out from the corner of the bar.
Another great rarity is the Winged Lion of St Mark sitting proudly on the corner. The building is historically listed and can trace its history back to 1810, when it was mentioned in The Belfast Newsletter as being one of the terminals for the Belfast to Dublin Mail Coach. The downstairs bar has its original mahogany counter with its old terrazzo floor.
A fresh daily seafood menu is available. Specialty steaks available up to 24oz and cut to any size. Morning Star has their own in-house butcher producing home-made sausages.
Local and guest beers are available plus weekly promotional beer prices.
The self-service buffet lunch is served daily from 12 - 4pm Monday to Saturday.
