The Clarence pub sits in the heart of the Balham community, where we pride ourselves on creating a relaxed atmosphere perfect for meeting with friends, family lunches, nervous first date territory, and pretty much everything in-between.

We have lots of treats to wet the appetite, from delicious pizzas cooked in our woodstone oven, to juicy burgers and hot-dogs with plenty of smaller snacks to suits everyone. You will be spoilt for choices with our spirit and beer selection, with local spirits and beers made right on our doorstep, (some brewed in our sister pub The Florence in Herne Hill) as well as a wide range of wines, international and craft beers from all over the world. With meaty and veggie brunches to enjoy at weekends, and a variety of roasts on Sundays, we’ve got all bases covered.

We only stopped by the Clarence for a quick glass of wine on a Friday evening. This was an enjoyable experience. It was fairly empty but had a small seated garden outside which was great in the warm weather.

The wine they have on tap is palatable which was quite surprising and also after spying on other peoples food choices the Garlic pizza bread looked tasty along with the nachos (just one...more

First impressions on walking in the door were not so great, but first impressions turned out to be quite wrong in this case. Not only did they serve real ale, but they had a locally brewed Bonobo (snicker) beer on. It was very good beer was the Adnam's old ale they served.

You get a good crowd in The Clarence. Plus a good range of beers and wines to get that crowd loose and chatty on the weekend.
