The Clifton is that increasingly rare beast - a proper pub with no pretentions and no attempt to be a gastro pub. I had a nice conversation with a friendly landlord, a decent pint and good old-fashioned fish and chips.

The people's pub, Our menu is designed with our customers in mind, a refreshed facade and vibrant activities calendar makes The Clifton Inn a great choice. We serve food 6 days a week and our menu makes us the ideal spot to grab a purse-friendly bite when out and about in the city. Our varied menu epitomises value for money dining, with no compromise on portion size or the quality of ingredients, and is available on Monday to Saturday. The popular carvery is on Sundays from noon to 3pm, booking is strongly recommended to avoid disappointment. The wide drinks selection includes local real ales from Devon and beyond which are featured on a regular basis, and cider lovers are spoilt for choice with a selection that includes Addlestones, Thatchers Gold and many different flavoured ciders.
