HOSPITALITY group Clover has announced plans to create 50 jobs in a further expansion of one of Belfast's oldest pubs.

The group, which operate a portfolio of eight venues in the city, is set to invest another £1.5 million in White's Tavern.

The Winecellar Entry venue, which dates back to 1630, was recently upgraded in 2020 with a large beer garden extending onto High Street.

Clover said it's now planning to establish a new beer hall at White's and open a fully licensed fish and chip shop.

Mark Beirne a director of the Clover Group, said: “This investment is testament not only to our confidence in the opportunities that there are within Belfast's social scene but also to the expertise and skillset within our team, who have worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic to deliver exemplary experiences for our customers.

“We are privileged to be the guardians of this outstanding Belfast bar, and the additions we have made will ensure that it will be cherished for generations to come,” he said.

“This new investment is ground-breaking, maintaining the long-standing traditional fabric of White's but adding an exciting quality new offering with an authentic beer garden and the first fully licensed fish and chip shop, delivering local Northern Ireland produce from Kilkeel scampi through to North Antrim Lobster.”
