We stayed 3 nights the room we had was a good size and well appointed good quality fittings effective air conditioning and quiet- access via steep stairs would not be great for anyone with mobility issues but fine for us. Any minor issues we had were quickly addressed - this is a small chain and we would use them again. This has a good location for Sadlers Wells and Exmouth Market with a good choice of places to eat and drink in the area.

Four of us stayed here for a birthday weekend in London, arriving early afternoon on Friday and leaving on Monday morning. We were delighted with our choice and were made to feel very welcome. The pub downstairs was still closed and so the rooms were really quiet with very effective double glazing and brilliant air conditioning, which we needed as it was very warm and leaving the windows open would have been noisy. Having said that, the area was quiet all weekend and only really came to life on Monday, which we didn’t mind at all. The rooms here are really nice and have a lot of character with every comfort and amenity, though we didn’t spend very much time there as we were out enjoying London. The bed was very comfortable and there was an excellent shower and very nice towels. The links to transport are excellent. We used the NCP car park a 5 minute walk away which was very secure. Buses and the tube are within easy reach of the pub so it was great for getting around. Even though many of the local cafes were still closed post-COVID, there were two really good breakfast places nearby and there will be many more once everything opens up again. We enjoyed going out for breakfast and the quality of cafes was really high in the street just opposite the pub. We would highly recommend the Clerk and Well and will stay again.

The staff were super friendly and hospitable. The environment was pleasant- there were TVs around showing soccer matches. I was disappointed by the food (I ordered chicken wings and fries) which was quite oily. My partner ordered chicken cooked with coconut milk, which he liked.

Drab with lumpy bed and access via steep, windy stairs absolutely treacherous for seniors. Had to leave for safety reasons and did not use a towel or anything else. Asked for immediate refund and refused any so had to pay for 5 night stay though left right away and had to find a suitable hotel. DO NOT STAY HERE.

Response from FirstRestaurantGroup, Manager at The Clerk & Well Pub
Responded Feb 5, 2020
Thank you very much for your review. We greatly appreciate your comments about the steep steps and I can assure you that the safety and security of our guests is always our top priority. We do everything possible to inform the guests that we do not have a lift as stated in our booking confirmation and pre-arrival emails to all our guests. Unfortunately we were unable to move you to a room on a lower floor or in a different property because we were fully booked, but we were going to relocate you the following day to another site but you had already left. We are sorry that we have not been able to resolve this, but as per my direct email, we would love you to have you back at one of the other sites. Best regards
