As per previous review, this has been the Purple Dog for some time. An improvement on the Clarence and this is now another pub which happily attracts all age groups. The lager is consistently good, and as a die-hard smoker I like what they've done to the patio area at the back. Always on the visiting list for a weekend session.

Completely closed, in fact. It's now under different management, and known as "The Purple Dog."

Heard that this has been temporarily closed down by licensing officers??? Don't really go in here anymore, but at least it smells like a real pub should do!

Being a regular reader of beer in the evening it strikes me that the Clarence has its staff writing reviews like its going out of fashion because they have no customers in the bar.
