The Clarendon Arms  

This is a quaint corner boozer serving great food at reasonable prices (Cajun Chicken and chips with salad; Spaghetti and cheesy mushrooms), and with 'huge' portions
too! The single bar is 'L' shaped and splits the room into two distinct areas, one for drinking and one for eating. The food area has many blackboards to let you know what food is available and the choice is good, even for vegetarians. The drinking area is fine while at the bar, but go to the toilets and its not disabled friendly as you have to go down steps. The eating area is carpeted while the rest is bare flags. There is a TV by the toilets to watch sport on. It is a Green King pub and thus serves Rayments, IPA and Abbots all well kept and no sparkler. The walls are adorned by plates on a Dutch plate rack (where else) and a low ceiling of beams. A friendly atmosphere compliments this relaxed clean and tidy pub and we were made welcome from the moment we walked in the door, right down to the free visitors car parking pass. Its not far too from the park separating the Grafton shopping Centre and the center of town. Well worth s stop over for a drink or to stay as they have 4 rooms, alas none are en-suite. Rooms were basic with TV tea making facilities and twin beds (of the small is beautiful size). However they are comfortable with a certain rustic charm, near the centre of town and at gbp25 per person B&B (large breakfast), hence the rating.
