This pub has been my regular for many years now, and during that time I have seen a few changes (not always for the better) and a few landlords come and go. In recent months, it has been taken over again and wow, it's probably the best it's ever been. The food is both simple and truly amazing; all cooked fresh from scratch in the refurbished and scrubbed kitchen. The staff are lovely, friendly but still remain professional and they don't form their own little clique, which I've often seen happen here before and in other pubs, which puts punters off I think. The landlord is also warm and welcoming.
However, if you're looking for a raucous boozer on a Friday / Saturday night this is probably not for you. The pub plays music but it's kept at a low, background level so you can chat with people you're with without having to shout. The pub quiz (Thurs eve) and jazz night (Sun eve) are both a fun night out.
All in all, the Clary is now everything I want from my local and more. Definitely worth a visit if you've never been, or if you have and were put off by how it was previously I'd highly recommend that you give it a second chance; you won't be disappointed!
