Quinno _ left this review about The Deer's Head

Popped in here as it was next on the list after a pretty underwhelming 30 mins in the John Hewitt. What a contrast here – clean, bright and rammed full of the local ukulele group having a practice night. The interior is P shaped with booths running along the leg of the P; we took a booth seat opposite a large troupe of strumming musos who were belting out an array of pop tunes and the odd traditional standards. Then the icing on the cake, a menu of beers brewed-in house (Bell’s) across arrange of styles (though all keg, but this is Belfast...). The homebrew beers were plentiful, flighted and amongst them were some genuinely quality brews – Horse Fair, Widow Partridges and Black Bull were particularly good, though not cheap. We decided to sack off the rest of the evening and stay here, such a good session we were having. Occasionally you hit a place just at the right time and this was it but even so there was definitely enough to make it a destination pub in the city with or without the music.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Deers Head

Although not planning a visit, you really shouldn't walk past a place proclaiming itself to be an "imbibing emporium"... so I didn't. Once inside, one finds an attractive line of booths beside the windows along the main façade. There is also a large raised area towards the back with signage indicating some decent pub food is on offer. The solidly-imposing counter and bar-back are amongst a number of Victorian-era features remaining. No real ale, unfortunately, but I'm glad I found the time to pop in for a quick pint of Smithwicks.

Large pub with booths running down one side under the windows, a raised seating area set up for dining at one end and a couple of small snugs at the other end. They have all kinds of music played in here in the evenings over the week, but we called in early afternoon when it was nice and peaceful. Standard range of Irish kegs on the bar so I had a Guinness, which was fine. It's a pleasant enough pub is this one, a little off the beaten tourist track and all the better for it.
