We went to the pub to meet up with some friends for their birthday. It was the day following the storms and I believe the cellars had flooded so it was all hand on deck. The service was great and the waitresses attentive and cared about your enjoyment. The food was lovely, home cooked and the portions a mammoth size.... More

The menu has great choice and the food is unbelievably cheap in price. Do not expect gourmet food but it was tasty. The waitress was lovely although it got busy and service did suffer slightly. The pub decor lets this place down. It's old and tired looking. Cobwebs on windowsill while you're eating. Needs a deep clean and a desperate... More

Went to Greenfield in saddleworth, a very picturesque area which is great for hiking and sightseeing. Stopped of for lunch at the Clarence hotel the kerb appeal is not as good as it could be, needs brightening up to attract visitors, however once you get inside its a different story. The place is warm and charming, only to be outdone... More

My brother, son and myself enjoyed a delightful lunch at the Clarence last week and the atmosphere was so pleasant that it was like having lunch n someone's home. The home cooking was excellent and very satisfying, and served by very pleasant people. My only suggestion is that the cottage pie could be more attractive if instead of piling mash... More

We went for a big walk round Dovestone with friends then booked Sunday lunch here for after the walk. Staff are so friendly, helpful and efficient. Food is excellent and good value. Can highly recommend the Torta Frita garlic bread which is delicious and roast sunday dinner excellent. There were 13 of us and we got served promptly and everyone... More

In a nutshell this could be better than what it was with a bit more care. Went for an afternoon meal with friends. Rag pudding was good and the vegetables nicely cooked. However the hot wings were cold and the home cooked chips were disappointing. Worse thing was the service. Just a general lack of customer care training, table not... More

Awful. Filthy glasses and cutlery. Overpriced good, well below average quality. Will never go again.

Popped in for a bite to eat before heading off to Dove Stones. Brilliant food, excellent price, yes the pub could do with a refurb but look past that and try the cajun chicken!

We came across this pub when passing but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, there are plenty more pub in the area. The beer was a reasonable price but the food was over priced for what we were served. As we were eating we also had a random dog running around our feet and sitting at the end of our... More

Description
The Clarence is located in Greenfield, Saddleworth, Not very far away from Dovestones. Its an ideal location to come and enjoy a nice Cask ale pint and some home cooked food after a long walk or if you just want to come to a place with a warm and welcoming atmosphere, good beer selection and home cooked food. We have recently changed Management and would like to welcome customers new and old to come back to The Clarence.
