Review.............The Clarendon is rather unsurprisingly on Clarendon Street, opposite Parker’s Piece near the police station. A local pub with regulars perched on low barstools it really does have a character of its own. The wonderful bar is cluttered with memorabilia; postcards, foreign bank notes and pictures of Laurel and Hardy compete for your attention among the numerous bottles of spirits. The till is a fantastic mechanical push button affair (never mind digital, it isn’t even electric!), and around the walls you’ll see golf collectibles and old vinyl records. Small and cosy, there are only about ten tables in here and one section is usually saved for diners. There is plenty of food available; they do Sunday lunch and a steak night has been running here for many years (long before a lot of other pubs started doing this). It is also worth taking a look at the blackboard for the daily specials. If you’re only a little bit peckish you can normally find some rolls available at the bar. There are four bitter pumps, expect Greene King I.P.A. and Abbott Ale as standard, and there are lagers such as Carling on draught. If you fancy going outside there is a small beer garden with three bench seats, and if it gets a bit nippy there are blankets available. On the entertainments side there is a quiz night, the bar has a T.V., and when I’ve dropped by its showing cricket more often than football. The Clarendon also doesn’t have a jukebox, there is normally some pleasant music playing in the background which is the barpersons choice on the stereo. A nice local backstreet pub.
