The Great Room Restaurant is undoubtedly one of Northern Ireland’s most extraordinary restaurants. Thanks to the remarkable original Victorian interior with its glass cupola, Ireland’s largest chandelier an array of plasterwork detailing, the space is second to none. Needless to say our chefs search tirelessly to bring the finest seasonal ingredients together in eloquent dishes in thoughtfully prepared menus, just one of the reasons The Great Room Restaurant was awarded 2 AA Rosettes. All this is complemented by expert service and a wine list to which all the superlatives apply!
Mid- week lunch is served Monday to Friday from 12.00 to 14.15

To book our iconic Afternoon Tea, please search for Afternoon Tea at The Merchant Hotel.

    First night of the new tasting menu with paired wines. Beautifully presented dishes with very good wines well described by the waiter. Of note was the beef with a lovely Rioja. Definitely special occasion stuff given the price but worth it.

    Beautiful hotel, fabulous service but food failed to deliver. Really nothing special at all. Great evening, but not worth it. Sorry!

    Excellent food and service from the table staff. The initial welcome at the front desk of the hotel and at the entrance to the Great Room was not very good, as the staff were distracted and we waited around and had to interrupt staff doing other tasks to tell them that we had arrived.
