See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Up until 2002, the building that the Clockhouse Bar occupies was in fact a Barclays bank, built in 1929. There is a working clock above the pub which is a kept war memorial, dedicated to those who lost their lives in the First World War. In the pub itself there are many different types of clocks on the wall. There is a mirror clock behind the bar, showing a time of 8:57. This is the time it stopped at during the second world war, due to the clock winder being called up to serve, and he was not replaced. Inside there are cork style tables and a raised level with comfy seating. Live Music Sat and Sun, with Folk/Roots/Blues on the last Sunday in the month. No longer serves food, but customers welcome to eat food from local shops/ takeaways if they buy a drink at the bar to accompany it. Upstairs restaurant is no longer open on a daily basis, it is only available for pre booked private dining & functions.
