“Cool bar tenders, nice atmosphere”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

My friend and I went here to watch the World Cup and try some whiskeys. The bartender was great and gave us a nice selection of Highland and Lowland whiskeys to try. He even wrote down the names of the whiskeys for us for future reference. The drinks were reasonably priced. A fun time

“Superb, that is all I can say.”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

From the second I stepped into the place I was met with a friendly smile and looked after very well. Good was great and the selection of drinks superb. Will definitely be back and will be recommending the place. This is what a pub should be, thanks for the great experience.

“Nice atmosphere, friendly people”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

We had drinks and dessert here one night. One of our kids had his second dinner a BLT and he raved about it. The people in the restaurant all seemed to enjoy what they ate and the staff was really friendly!

“Awful aussie waitress”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

Came here for the 1st time after my cousin made a reservation. Walked in but no one came to attend us. So we sat down at the table that we think was reserved for us as it said 7.30. An Australian waitress came up to us and asked 'excuse me, have u booked a table?' And my cousin said yes, my name is ..... , and the waitress asked, whats the name? My cousin yet again repeated her name. Cousin ended up repeating her name 3 times. No smile, very rude! She walked and away to get the menus. Me and my cousins were very hacked off about her attitude. She came back with the menus. Walked away for like a min, didnt even give us a chance to look at the menu and came back and asked what drinks we would like. I said to her, well can i have the drinks menu. N she gave me this dirtiest look and flipped the menu round to show us the drinks menu. No smile . She made us look stupid! If she had given us a chance to look at the menu, maybe we would figure out where to drinks where. My cousins couldnt believe we encountered such rude waitress that they decidded to grab our coats and leave! Awful service!! 1st impression, bad impression. Will never even come here and certainly wont be recommending to friends.

Hi there,

I am very sorry to read this review as well as extremely disappointed in the service you received. I would be very grateful if you would be so kind to email clerks@maclay.co.uk so that we can discuss this in more detail.

This really does not reflect the ethic of Clerk's Bar therefore I would like the opportunity to investigate this fully as well as go some way to making this up to you and your cousin.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,
Kayleigh
General Manager
