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've dined here on a number of occasions and this is the first time we've been somewhat disappointed. We were a party of nine and had booked a table for 8pm. First we had a short 10 minute wait until our table was ready and the bench seating on one side of the table is not the most comfortable of seating and it is also too low to eat comfortably unless you're at least 6' tall. It's also very awkward to get in and out when you're a a large group. We eventualy ordered and waited....and waited.....and waited, there was a significantly long delay before our starters eventually appeared. Understandable if the restaurant was heaving but it wasn't, so no discernible reason for the wait and no apology either. Then we had another, not insignificant wait for our mains. All the meals bar mine were fine but not only did my meal arrive with the wrong accompaniment but when the right one was delivered, discovered that the meal was cold. So whilst everyone else enjoyed their food, I waited for a replacement which arrived in reasonable time but was overcooked. Couldn't face the thought of returning this one as well but did mention it when paying the bill and to their credit, this charge was removed from the bill. Apart from that everyone enjoyed their meals and our waitress was charming and helpful but this was not the high standard we've come to expect from The Clarence. Yes we'll be back and hope to see a much improved service if this establishment is to stay on our "favourites" list.

The meal was excellent, the staff were a credit to the Clarence however I found them a little less attentive and slow on small things (clearing the plates, serving food). Huge down fall, we wanted to pay for drinks separately so had to keep going downstairs which, for some of the older members of our party was extremely difficult. All in all the food/atmosphere/experience was great. Thank you.

Fantastic service from the man with his hair in a pony tail. He was friendly and attentive and dealt with all requests very promptly despite the Clarence being relatively busy when we visited. Food was great and the 2 courses menu is veey good value. Children's food menu also very good. Only reason I knocked a star off for value for money is because I think £1.25 for a very small children's cordial is excessive. Like that it was served in a plastic cup with lid though. Would recommend and will come back.

Brilliant as always. Food, service etc top notch as usual (we are regulars). One thing, it was a Sunday afternoon and we seemed to have a limited menu to choose from, usually we have the pick and had my heart set on the duck. Like I say, other than that, superb. Thanks.

Food was excellent, everything perfectly cooked. Service was very friendly, and welcoming however it was very slow. We didnt get our mains till almost two hours after our table was booked for.

Excellent service. From help in organising the event from Bec through to the guys setting up on the evening and then the bar staff on the night. They cant do enough to help. We used the top floor bar which has a great atmosphere. Not even mentioned the food yet, for an order of 30 people they got it all right and everyone went away happy! Would highly recommend...
