Gastropub
$$$
“Named after the Robert Burns' poem, this newly minted bar oozes trad charm reminiscent of a pub many years' its senior. Formerly the Ulster Female Penitentiary, its dark and brooding interior envelopes a large central bar surrounded by stools, snugs and lots of eye-catching curios; think bookshelves crammed with tomes from Mills & Boon to Encyclopaedia Britannica. We're sure the former inmates would approve. Plenty of hearty faves populate the all day menu, while the drinks list evokes a Scottish baronial chic you'd expect from this watering hole's moniker. Check out its fabulous rooftop bar, The Perch, and adjoining Rita's ”
