The Cloth Ear is the pub attached to the Merchant Hotel. We went in on a Friday evening and spent an excellent hour there. It was busy, but there were still plenty of seats available. The decor and furniture are absolutely top quality. The selection...More

Visited tonite at a quiet time! 25 mins to get 2 glasses of wine! New staff no excuse! In contrast the Thirsty Goat could provide the same drinks in 5 mins in a much busier establishment!
