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.

I've been a fan of the Clarence for many years and travel to Bury 2-3 times a year to eat there. The Sunday Roast has always been a favourite. I recently booked a table for a special occasion. I'm hoping that it was a one-off experience but I have to say that for me, the magic has wained. Our table server was very poor. She tried to rush us into making decisions on drinks and food, assumed that I was drinking wine and poured me a glass even though it was my wife drinking it. I mentioned that it wasn't for me and the reply was "ooh" before walking off. So we had a glass of white wine sat getting warm until my wife was ready for another glass. The menu options have been cut shorter. The food arrived and although it was presented well, was bland and not to usual past standards. The cushions in the fixed seats were worn down, uneven and uncomfortable. They were aware of the special occasion and yet unfortunately nobody was left feeling special. It felt like an unhappy ship. I hope that they can raise their standards back to where they originally were.

Vegetarian options very dull and not as described. A falafel was more like a sausage.

Four of us for tea and two of our party had never eaten at The Clarence before. Our guests were very impressed with the amazing food and friendly, efficient service. Can’t recommend highly enough. Will be back soon, and may fit in that pudding - maybe.

During a recent weekend visit to my home town, my family and I ate at the Clarence three times, sampling the main evening menu, tapas style dining and Sunday lunch. On each occasion we received nothing less than courteous, efficient service; excellent cuisine and great value for money. We will be back!

Veg was cold. Never received mustard after asking. Waitresses at the hot plate eating food and biting nails. Sat around the corner and very hard to get noticed to order drinks.

I spent more than £60 last Friday, when my steak arrived there was no garnish, a few mushrooms and half tomato would have been nice.

Excellent food and service. The goats cheese and beetroot starter, and the fully loaded burger were particularly high points in a very good meal.
