The pub used to be ok, spacious with a decent atmosphere. But over the past few weeks, something appears to have happened. There's a big turnover in bar staff. Few of the staff appear to be properly trained. There are frequently items missing from the menu. Nobody appears to be properly in charge. The Clarence is losing any advantages it... More

Appalling food, shameful that a Chef could dish up such rubbish, even a dog would turn his nose up !!! .. If it wasn't for the company we were in the food would have been returned .. Absolutely shameful

This place is fine for a quick tea type visit but although three of the four meals ordered were fine the fourth, chicken in bacon with BBQ sauce was inedible. It was a Monday and therefore supposed to be bigger portions but the mixed grill burger and chips I had was nice but left me stopping at McDonalds on the... More

Don't ever make the mistake of ordering fish and expecting it not to be over-cooked and slimy... Never again!! But the family atmosphere is good, the balance of indoor and outdoor seating areas is excellent. And the car... More

Since last February this pub has improved I would rarely come here before but now it's my first choice for a family meal or a night out with friends as it caters to all. The food is always delicious and the staff are friendly. My children are always made to feel welcome and never looked down on like in other... More
