Winecellar Entry

Winecellar Entry is a small Entry just off Lombard Street, it is home to White’s Tavern, a popular pub founded in 1630. Whilst considered to be the longest serving pub in Belfast, it has largely been rebuilt after a fire in the 1990s.

Belfast has a series of historical narrow alleyways  they are mainly to be found in the vicinity of High Street and Ann Street. It is thought they date back to at least, if not before 1630, these entries are the oldest parts of Belfast city. In days long gone, they played an important part in the residential and business life of the then town – now city.

The names gracing these alleyways are almost romantic and I intend returning to them at a future date.
