The Cloth Ear

No visit to Northern Ireland would be complete without visiting a really good pub! In Belfast you are spoilt for choice, but why not start your odyssey in The Merchant Hotel’s own welcoming public house – The Cloth Ear?

There’s an exceptional range of craft beers, ales and stouts both bottled and on tap as well as a range of lagers and beers from around the world. They have an extensive range of liqueurs and spirits including a fine portfolio of Irish and International whiskies.   A diverse range of new and old world wines are also available as well as classic and contemporary cocktails.

And of course, no great pub would be complete without great pub grub! The food in The Cloth Ear is fresh, creative and hearty, using the best local ingredients is the key to their successful dishes. Their signature “hanging skewers” are a feast for the eyes…… and the belly.

Every Thursday evening there is live music from resident band “Acoustic Soul”. They play acoustic adaptations of rock n’ roll anthems, indie classics and modern chart toppers. They also show all the big sporting events in the Cloth Ear notably Premier League football, local and International Rugby and major golf tournaments.
