The John Hewitt
The award-winning John Hewitt in Belfast's Cathedral Quarter is owned by the Belfast Unemployed Resource Centre and generates funds for the project. The food, served amid dark wood panelling and a floor of original tiles, is not flash but it is proper: steak sandwich, fish and chips, pork chop with mash. The beer selection includes Hilden, from Ireland's oldest independent brewery.
