Digital Detox Dinner

On Thursday 9th May, The Cloth Ear is hosting something a little different…an evening for the raconteurs among you!

In an age where we can’t escape distractions and the constant buzz of mobile phones, we have created an evening specifically designed to remove outside distractions with one simple rule, no phones! Our aim is simple – to Reintroduce the Gentle Art of Conversation.

Book your table from 7:30pm and enjoy a soiree of exceptional food and drink, and let the conversation flow.

To book, simply phone 028 9026 2719.

In line with current Government legislation, the Merchant Hotel will be closed to non-residents from 26th December. To book an overnight stay, please do so via our website or by emailing

E-gift experience vouchers due to expire during the time we are closed will automatically be extended to 31st October 2021. Monetary gift cards and e-vouchers purchased after 2015 are now valid for 7 years.
