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 used your restaurant upstairs plenty of times and it’s as been 5* on Tuesday we treated my dad for his 70th birthday to a meal and unfortunately it wasn’t the same experience. Food wasn’t as good we had to send a burger back uncooked and I had to go and get my drink as it was sat on the bar for 10 mins. I wouldn’t come through the week again and would think twice at the weekend. You have an amazing pub but unfortunately your team need some engagement as they all seemed unhappy to be there and lack of development.

As always the food was lovely and is great value for money. Was a little disappointed in the service but this was nothing to do with the waitresses who were very attentive with their service. Kitchen seemed to be a little stretched so delay with getting food but is usually busy on Sunday’s due to the demand. Will be back again.

Slow service (2 hours for two courses). Non attentive staff. No final bill (reliance on written orders from waitresses) - not a till printout. Chaotic scenes when attempting to pay. Not informed about group discount, consequently may have been overcharged. Would not recommend this restaurant to any other lunch groups.

It is the second time we have booked out the top floor room. First, for a birthday celebration and second for a wake. Both times staff were amazing sorting out a set menu/meal or a buffet style meal. Bec is amazing at listening and organising everything my parents wanted and nothing was too much of an ask. -From helping with decorations the first time around and organising the room with us to making sure everything was running smoothly! The bar staff have been fantastic on both occasions-very friendly, and the food has always been amazing, we go to The Clarence regularly, for the food anyway! It’s the perfect space for a get together with family and friends. Everything we needed! Thanks so much!

Disappointed to note the oven was broke! Not enough staff on for my liking and the little waitress was rushed off her feet. Starters were luke warm and not hot. Coffee was like sludge and when we asked for some hot milk to put in it we had to chase the bar staff for it. It eventually came and was luke warm and not hot.

Super food and excellent service from the staff. Would perhaps like to see more choices on the main menu but the tapas dishes we had were very good.

A thoroughly enjoyable experience from the initial greeting, a couple of drinks in the bar through to the end of our meal in the restaurant upstairs. Good choice of real ales, good wine and good food served by friendly and attentive staff.

I always book the upstairs window table for a get together with friends. The staff are some of the most friendly and obliging around. Always a great atmosphere and the food is lovely.

I can’t fault the food, the food was amazing but having to get the staffs attention for drinks and to order just wasn’t the best service I’ve had. I’d totally understand if you was busy but there was 5 tables in and 3 members of staff, we was only a table of 2. Can’t fault the food though.
