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. Please note - our restaurant is situated on the first floor, up a flight of stairs. Unfortunately no lift is available. 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.
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.
Loved the tapas!
Brilliant afternoon. Food very good & nothing too much trouble. First class, thank you to Rebecca & the team. X
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.
Had a fabulous Sunday lunch. Great food as ever!
Staff were friendly and attentive as always!
Food was great as ever, very good value too
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.
Always great food. Service was both professional and friendly
Excellent service and lovely food
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.
Nicole our waitress was delightful and very helpful
Waiting staff need training, not attentive.
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.
my wife and I took my mum for her b,day we all enjoyed the food ,drink ,very friendly service and will recommend to others
Had the sea bass which was very fresh and tasty, lovely meal, attentive staff, great experience 😊
Great surroundings music and food , thoroughly enjoyed the meal . Thank you !
We love coming to the Clarence. The food and service are always good.
