Fountain Lane has been feeding and watering Belfast since 1901. With a wealth of history as a tavern for the city, call in for good food, great drinks, local music, live sport.

From 1840 Fountain Lane’s name originated from the two fountains that were situated on Fountain Street, which distributed water from Mundy’s Well to the local community. From then on, the site was established as Fountain Street National School.
