We went for a walk around Dovestones Res and looked for a pub which would do food and allow dogs, we found the Clarence. Service was terrible, the pub was basically empty apart from a few locals, we were the only group (6). It took 15 minutes to get our first drinks, seriously. Although I acknowledge that it is a...

Arrived on a sunny late Saturday afternoon. The place was pretty empty so getting seated was easy. Within a few minutes of getting a table friendly waiting staff brought menus over and our drinks order taken. Tea was great and coffee was good although the coffee should have been hotter. We proceeded ordered garlic bread, fish and chips, Empire State... More

isn't it funny what you might expect when you see a name like 'The Clarence'? We thought it would be smart/casual dining with area for the doggit. On arrival there was a group of people outside who put me off a bit...then the entrance into the bar is scruffy...desperately needs some updating or just refreshing the paint scuffs. Fairly pleasant... More

We are a walking group who have spent money here before but never again. The place is uninviting and the service slow due to too few staff. If you get the opportunity of visiting this place ,,,,,,,walk away!

After 4 mile walk around Doveholes Reservoir, we stopped for lunch. There was a good range of dishes, reasonably priced and very nicely cooked. Good range of beers on the bar too.

This review is a difficult one to write. The food wasn't that great and the place really needs some TLC. But, the staff were great, really friendly and service was prompt. The real stand out though was the price. £14 for 3 courses is incredible value. So I would say the Clarence is worth a visit just to make up... More

Description
The Clarence is located in Greenfield, Saddleworth, Not very far away from Dovestones. Its an ideal location to come and enjoy a nice Cask ale pint and some home cooked food after a long walk or if you just want to come to a place with a warm and welcoming atmosphere, good beer selection and home cooked food. We have recently changed Management and would like to welcome customers new and old to come back to The Clarence.
