This pub used to serve good food. Or at least edible food.
Went for Sunday lunch.
Awful food, was shocked at how bad it was. Was like stepping back in time. Service was dreadful, miserable staff no doubt being paid pennies.
Left most of the food. Extortionate prices.
Judging by the fact it was almost empty suggests that most people have realised and stayed away.more
Yes, it hit the spot! Good Pub Food with an Awesome Outdoor Seating, perfect for summer.
Highlights: Food was delicious, cooked great with ample quantity, Location was easy to find with some private parking, Staff was friendly with good decor and ample space for private events.
Can improve: Food is above average but they can definitely improve to make it better.

The terrace outside is the right mix of laidback pub atmosphere with pure class. Jazz plays in the background and the staff, while a bit slow to serve sometimes, are attentive and offer you bread and crudités to keep you going before your meal arrives.
I ordered a shoulder of lamb and my boyfriend ordered two sides to create a main. Truth is, we only had to wait about 5 minutes for the meals!...more
How this place could be any less than 5 stars is just beyond me!!!! I was lucky enough to come here for one of my best friends wedding receptions. The three course meal we had was incredible!!! I had squid for starters! Then BBQ chicken and fries. And the. Chocolate brownie for dessert was just to die for. The design of the place worked so so well for a wedding and I had the best night ever!...more
Firstly, please note that this is a review of the pub and not the restaurant. I've no idea what the food and service is like there.
I refer to Clissold Arms as The Prettiest Pub In The World. I first discovered Clissold Arms while on my evening jog. I couldn't help but stop and admire the beer garden, quite literally covered in fairy lights. It's a bit kitsch but really cute.
