Established in 1868
Situated above Belfasts’s oldest tavern, The Oyster Rooms was originally established in 1868 by John Walker, who was a fish monger and spirit merchant by trade. Fished from the loughs of Belfast and Carlingford, the proprietor, John, soon earned a reputation for his supply of high quality oyster to the city. From being a humble place, where the locals loved to eat, drink and socialise, The Oyster Rooms has now evolved into one of the most admired restaurants in Belfast. Without a doubt, there’s history in our heart, music in our soul, and plenty of good food and great drinks that will make you happy!
