Description

The Deer’s Head is Belfast city’s original brewpub with a fully functional on-site craft brewery, Bell's Brewery, on full display inside this newly refurbished saloon bar.

Founded by Wine & Spirit Merchant John Donnelly in 1885, The Deer’s Head is the first historical pub in Belfast to be brought back to its original name. Steeped in history and tradition, walk around this iconic building to discover nods of history across its walls.

Displayed inside this recently refurbished saloon bar you'll find Bell’s Brewery, where you can observe the entire brewing process, up close and personal, from the comfort of your seat. Unpasteurised, unfiltered beer born and brewed in Belfast. Smell the malt being mashed and the hops being added to the boil on brew days and fully immerse yourself in this popular experience in Belfast. With state-of-the-art brewing equipment, these are the only copper Brewiks tanks to be found in Europe!

The origins of Bell’s Brewery date back to 1778, when founder John Bell operated one of the first-known commercial breweries in Belfast and helped kickstart the beer revolution in the city during this time. The team at the Deer’s Head are passionate about reviving what was once the city’s thriving brewery quarter.

With beers named after once known pubs of Belfast including their core North Star Lager, Black Bull Stout & Monkey Shaving the Goat IPA, rotating specials and a fantastic local craft beer selection, The Deer’s Head is the perfect city centre destination for beer enthusiasts. With tasting flights available, it’s also the perfect opportunity for anyone wanting to explore craft beer for the first time. They are also purveyors of the finest quality spirits with over 120 whiskies and 70 gins on their shelves.

Traditional food is served Monday to Saturday from 11am and 12pm on Sundays where you can expect to find all your favourite pub classics, created by their MasterChef finalist Head Chef, Jonny Stevenson of Urban Scullery. Well renowned for their Sunday Roasts… they are a favourite with locals and tourists alike!

Enjoy live music and entertainment in the bar from Ukulele Jams, Irish Dancing Experiences, Trad Sessions, Live Singers and DJs every week. Or venture upstairs to The Deer’s Head Music Hall; a 200-capacity venue showcasing everything from local blues artists to popular touring bands from the UK, Ireland and beyond.
