We would complain about the atmosphere, but how can you have atmosphere with nobody there? A spotless (and punter-less) front bar greeted us on entry. Suprising for a Thursday night, I thought. Still, the barmaid was friendly and chatted away about the place.

The Clarence looks as though it's had a recent re-fit (actually not that recent, it's just well kept) and while it's not a stand-out option if you're out this way, it's still a fairly nice spot. We're told it hots up at weekends, when the football crowd are in (The pub sponsors Sydney South New Zealanders), but we've never seen it that busy.

The back bar is small, accomodating a single pool table, but the bar looks through onto the larger Pokie Lounge. Now, there are split allegiances within the PubGuide team on the subject of Pokies. My personal view is that they should be dragged into the street and smashed, but looking here I couldn't really summon up enough hatred to even complain. It was just depressing. We chatted with the barman for a few minutes while we finished our beers and moved on.

We're told they're currently applying for a licence to run live music, but until then, we'll be giving it a miss.

A bit quite, but still much nicer than a few other local hotels. Day staff are nicer, as night staff lack customer service skills. Greg is the main man there. The friendliest barman in town..........Just don't eat the food.

Great local pub - has come a long way since the change from the comedy store. The 24hr opening hours are great for us shift workers & the staff are always friendly.
