Open 7 days a week, and serving food from 12pm right through until 9pm (10pm Fri and Sat). Please note; Mon - Thurs we serve sandwiches only 3pm - 5pm. On Sundays we offer a menu featuring just the classics, but our popular Sunday roasts are available until 6pm, or we sell out (often earlier), so booking is recommended.
Reservations aren't always needed in the restaurant, however we strongly recommend that you book to avoid disappointment.

If you are unable to use the stairs, please let us know when booking a table and we will be happy to reserve you one on the ground floor. The same menu is available throughout the building.
We don't serve food in our first floor restaurant on Mondays & Tuesdays and from 5pm on Wednesdays & Thursdays, but the same menu will be available to enjoy on the ground floor.

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.
A nice surprise in Bury!
As always - great food, drink and service from the team.
Lovely food, good service great venue!
One of our favourite dining experiences, always enjoyable.
Excellent food and service for our party of 14.
A really great place to chill out for double birthday celebrations - but our main, fish of the day, needed a side to make it a proper meal and we all then had to order chips once it had arrived - this should be clearer on menu or from waiter. Also we had long wait to order and then receive our desert, meaning we didn't stay on for coffee as planned and were still late for our 7pm event at the Met despite arriving 5.30 Good - but could do much better...
Lovely food as always! Always recommending to friends and family. What a little gem residing in the heart of bury!
Another fabulous meal
Haven't visited for a few months. Great bar with atmosphere, great beers and great staff! Restaurant service and food as excellent as ever. We noticed the smaller menu, however it's quality not quantity that counts... It's a shame Bury Town Centre is quieter at night than it used to be, and it is worth the trip into Bury just to visit The Clarence with it's atmosphere and great staff!
When I book a table for 4.30 (because we had to be elsewhere later on) I expect to be seated at 4.30. We were seated at 4.55pm. No good. If I was a “walk in” then fair enough - but not for a specific booking, despite their excuses
Excellent food and service, huge variety of drinks
6 of us really enjoyed our evening, the food was very good particularly the catch of the day that 3 of us had.
Staff were fantastic and friendly
Absolutely delightful lunch . Mussels and sea bass both perfect.
Great we really enjoyed the Clarence in BURY
From start to finish definitely doing something right 1st class keep it up in the words of arnie I'll be back
Very limited choice on the menu. Not really much choice for anyone on a gluten free diet. Many of the ales at the bar were not available. Quite a poor experience to be honest.
We came to the Clarence again because our last meal and experience was so nice. I’m sorry to say, this time was really disappointing. We were asked to wait while a check was made if our table was ready, we didn’t really want a drink in the bar. That didn’t hapoenn straight away as we heard the telephone conversation and as soon as the call was made, the table was ready ?The table wasn’t the best, but we noticed the people on the next table were given better service than us including details of ‘specials’. We were ordering at much the same time, but nothing was offered to us, it seemed a bit strange to hear them talking about dishes that didn’t appear on our menus nor were they mentioned, only that there was only 1 duck left. We weren’t asked about drinks, and waited an age for cheese that had clearly been waiting and not delivered. No one said anything as we left. It was very busy, but others seemed to get better service than us. We feel really disappointed, we were going to bring friends but now we don’t feel like it would be a good experience
Thursday night Good choice on menu Great service Drinks good Relaxed Ambiance
The split tables did cause a problem for 9 people. Gaps and wonky legs. The restaurant could have been opened with the amount of tables dining
One of the best vegetarian Sunday roasts I've ever had - such a gorgeous bistro-type restaurant with impeccable service. We will be back, thank you!
Lovely place good honest food
It was good
Lovely food, fantastic service. Our waiter Alfie was very attentive and polite, nothing was too much trouble. Great atmosphere too. Will definitely be back.
Food was late coming out. I had specifically asked for a certain time. Half the guests needed to leave by the time the food came out. Had to ask twice for the Red Cabbage to go with the Lancashire hot pot - people had already eaten by the time we got it. Very embarrassing.
