Sunday Lunch
Welcome to The Clifton, we look forward to serving you. All the food served at The Clifton is freshly prepared and made with beautiful seasonal ingredients. There’s truly something for everyone on the menu, from bar snacks and kids’ dishes, to our famous Sunday roasts. Plus, you can rest assured that everything on the menu is sampled, and the suppliers are personally vouched for, by Ben, Ed and Adam – a tough job, but someone has to do all that tasting!

Cracking Sunday roast with gravy to die for. Will certainly be back in a few weeks time. A real hidden gem!

Great dinner out, enjoyed 5 or so sharing plates between 2. Staff could not have done more to make us feel comfortable. Will definitely go back with the family.

We have just moved to the area and great to know this is round the corner. My only suggestion is that they make the front area no smoking as this is very enclosed.

Delicious food and lovely atmosphere. Loads of precautions taken to safeguard guests at tables. Price is high for pub meal but this is probably connected with the pandemic and the removal of tables.

Delicious Sunday Roast and friendly staff. Even though there are COVID safety measures, the pub feels "normal", which is great.

Love it here. Everyone always really friendly especially Jen our table service. Love the way they haven’t gone overboard with the “tape” on reopening after lockdown unlike other places making you feel like you’re drinking in a crime scene. Although the menu has been changed to just small plates but not the end of the world!

We were given a lovely table in the conservatory with a gentle breeze. There were only a few other tables inside but the staff welcomed guest into the outside courtyard which definitely added a buzz. Really nice to see my favourite local from back in the day going strong!

We decided to spend Super Saturday at the wonderful Clifton. The rump steak with chimi churi was spectacular; the langoustine tortellini was below par - the butter sauce was wonderful but the pasta was floury and pretty tasteless. Still, it was a lovely evening!

After lockdown, it was quite nice to finally be able to return to the Clifton! The outdoor area was lovely to sit outside at a big picnic table with some friends. Overall, we had a pleasant experience, service went at a fine pace. My only query was the lack of PPE. Several staff members had a mask on throughout the entire experience, while the bartender did NOT and our waitress had a mask around her neck which clearly does not do any prevention. I would feel much more comfortable returning here if all staff was wearing a mask.

Great service from super friendly staff make this pub a great option for Sunday lunch. Very popular with groups and families so if you're looking for a quieter experience go for a later lunch booking. Food is great and the wine list decent. A really lovely afternoon was had by all.

A lovely pub, however the servers were not very friendly and were clearly rushing around. The wait for food was very long, it took 1 hour 15 minutes for the main course to arrive. The wait staff were extremely busy and were unable to cope with the number of tables. It lead to a disappointing experience.
