The Duke of Clarence serves gastro pub food at lunchtime and during the evening and has a good wine list, many of which are served by the glass. A sister of the Builder's Arms on Britten Street in Chelsea, the decor is much the same. With many windows, this is a bright and airy pub, with comfortable sofas to sit in as well as many tables and chairs.

Rock solid - my local. Food consistently good. Excellent open atmosphere - light in day and cozy at night. Specials vary and are good. Good beers on tap. The pub quiz is long gone these days (maybe 3-4 years ago they did away with it). OK for dining alone. Excellent for lunch too. If it is really busy - try across the street at the Drayton Arms. Lamb burger is one of my favorites.more
Few notches above the normal pub, this is clearly a gastro pub. Not a restaurant as such either, would be perfectly fine to sit here just with a beer or two.

When I initially walked in, this place seemed great. Nicer pub, lots of cool wooden features (I'm a sucker for giant unfinished solid wood tables). Alas, I stepped up to the bar and soon I was singing a different tune.
First, the placement of the tables relative to the bar is a bit silly considering it's a pub that gets very busy quickly. I had to maneuver in between tables and finally...more
This is my local. And there's good reason. Aside from the fact it's not far from my flat.
Solid food. Burgers are always good. My lamb shank steak (strange right) was great the other night but almost over-shadowed by the really well done side of lentils with sweet potatoes and tomatoes. The best are the glazed sausages to start. My favorite.
House bottles of red and white are a good deal and...more
This is the sort of pub you'd love to have for your local. And you might even put on your list for when you're in Earl's Court, which isn't often.
You could almost call it a clean, well-lit place to drink. Windows all round lend a friendly atmosphere, and an excellent selection of ales (Tribute, Doom Bar, and... oh, something else which I've forgotten) Aspall cider on draught. The food looked...more
