I was with my family walking down Commercial Court on Sunday afternoon the 13th of September. My wife sat down on one of the red seats and I walked into the bar with my 4 year old son. I was told very rudely by a person collecting glasses that no children are permitted in the bar. I went back outside and left my son with my wife and went back in. I was refused again at the bar even though my son and wife were not on the pub. I had to stand and argue that Commercial Court was a public right of way and not the property of the Duke of York. I also mentioned that the Duke of York has lots of kids running about outside on Saturday afternoons. It took me 5 min's of complaining before I could get a pint. To be honest The Duke is one of my favourite bars but after being treated like this I will not be back and I would not recommend anyone else goes back either!
I sincerely hope you mean 'brutal' in a good way - this gem of a place has to be one of the best pubs in Belfast. Ed
Kind of place that every Irish pub in the world is trying to be. The collection of football programmes on the walls must be priceless. I made the owner an offer but he wasn't interested.
