It was on the right side of the road but has moved 50 metres down the road on the left from the main shopping street. The old place was actually "old" which we had been visiting twice a year for the last 12 - 15 years.
It had changed hands in the last couple of years, the menu dusted down and new glasses. Now it had wandered down the road to renovated premises with a one year lease, whether the old Zur Clocke will re-open and it will move back again, only time will tell.
The atmosphere in the new places isn't as good. The food is still up to the same reasonably high standard. The staff are the same friendly, helpful student labour force that they have always used over the years, with the old faces moving down the road. The geography and law students.
The new place might grow on one. The toilets downstairs are now swish and you do get free splash on fragrances in the loo so you can return to your meal smelling perfect for the evening ahead. Mind you it could have been a shop lifter from Douglas who deposited the sampler in the loo. Possibly not, basically the student labour force organised the move across the road and revamped the place for the owner, well that's what we were told.
