Still worth a visit even in the close season

Went back to the Clinton Arms at the very end of October and was pleasantly surprised at the standard of the meals and the service even though it was the end of the holiday season. Would always recommend a visit to the Clinton Arms

I ordered the faggots and it was evident that they had been microwaved to the stage of not being able to get my knife through them. What small amount I managed to cut... More
