Inexperienced staff, although helpful. Supermarket food packaged as home made and not very appetising. Won’t return the next time we walk Dovestone.

We went here after a walk round Dovestones reservoir. The pub itself is clean with old fashioned decor. Dogs are allowed which is a huge plus for us. The food is reasonably priced (3 course Sunday menu for £15.95) but it is very simple and...More

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.
