About The Clarence

Set across four floors, The Clarence offers something for diners and drinkers of all tastes.

The Ground Floor is a sympathetically-restored traditional pub with lots of original features, offering a welcoming atmosphere in which to enjoy Manchester's best pub food. Serving 6 real ales, including some made in our Silver Street micro brewery in the basement, there's also a formidable range of wines and spirits. The full menu is available to enjoy in the pub.

Our restaurant is on the first floor, with tall windows providing a light, airy space in this beautifully restored building. With full table service provided and our chefs working hard at the pass, this is the place to come for the full dining experience with table service.

On the top floor is the Fallen Angel, our intimate cocktail bar, open at weekends or occasionally by request (and available for private hire). If you're lucky, this is the place to enjoy pre-or-post-meal cocktails or to spend your night in style, with table service for drinks.

We have dined with you frequently and often come with friends, however we were surprised to see the food choices on the blackboard. My husband and I originally thought that they were the specials as we had always been given a menu, however we quickly realised that this was the menu. The two girls who were serving did a fantastic job, despite it being busy and them being in demand at times. There were times were the food in the kitchen was sat under the lights for quite some time as there was no one around to serve it. We were disappointed this time.

A disappointing return to the Clarence, previously it has always been excellent.Booked in for the restaurant but when we arrived were told that this was not open.It was uncomfortably cold downstairs and the atmosphere is lacking in comparison with upstairs.Only one waiter on [very pleasant] but the service was very slow. We weren't in a hurry but other people there were not impressed and apologies had to be offered. Food overall was just OK [but my chicken liver pate was the worst I have ever experienced]. A friend told me the other week that The Clarence isn't what it was and after this visit I would agree. I do hope this is just a temporary blip.

Lovely food, but very slow service and cocktails requested weren't available as ingredients wasn't in stock. Very annoying. Shame as I had been here twice previously and did not suffer this.

Dined upstairs, good menu, offering wide variety of dishes, well cooked hot very well presented, staff pleasant and efficient. One of the best roast belly pork with all the trimmings l’be had. Good dessert menu with something different on offer.

I was looking forward to eating here as I haven't been before...Won't be going again.... I have never seen such a rubbish and tiny menu. After there was no chicken available, the only thing I could have was fish and chips which I didn't feel like but had to have. AND then the mushy peas were mushed garden peas with onion in them- who does that!! It was hideous!...Most of the tables still had plates and glasses on them and were unmade. Only 2 other people in there which doesn't surprise me. Awful experience.

Best food, drink and service in Bury. We had a family party and everyone loved it. Thanks to Harry, Dylan, Christina and all the chefs and the whole Clarence Team. Brilliant evening.

Just a few small things detracted from a better score. I am sure we will give you another try next time we are in Bury.
