About the Pub

Northern Ireland's first Social Enterprise bar was named after the poet John Hewitt. This is a popular bar, near St Anne's Cathedral. It does not have TV or piped music but concentrates on live music and events including quizzes and art exhibitions. It is owned and run by the Belfast Unemployed Resource Centre and helps to fund the organisation's work. High-quality food is served at lunchtime with specials on the blackboard. There is one hand pump mainly serving ales from Shepherd Neame, although there are occasional guests from local breweries such as Hercules. Not open until the evening on Sunday.
