I'm a touch apprehensive at rating this little gem.. I'd like to keep it all to myself, ha ha. I had the most wonderful Sunday Roast - Feeling greedy so had all 3 courses at £12.95 ... FOOD to DIE FOR!! Not been for a few years, but now under new Management and came highly recommended... Loving the feel of that cosy old pub - with their friendly staff & excellent service, can't wait to go again! GREAT FOOD!!

The bar is small and dark-quite dingy actually. Seating is minimal in the bar area but this is because it is a small pub. The 'bolt on' eating area is much much larger and bright/airy. Outside is a well kept and extremely pretty garden area, brick laid. It has hanging baskets and a wide variety of flowers, all well tended and free from litter.
The landlord and landlady are very young. But don't be put off by it because they are two of the most professional, courteous and hard working publicans I have met. Many of the more 'established' publicans could learn a thing or two from this couple. Likeable and helpful, they will go far. It will be a great shame if ever they leave.
The food varies from good to excellent. We have eaten there several times and yet to have something presented to us of which we were unhappy. You can eat in the bar area-there are tables by the fire-but it does get very warm. The restaurant is better and, when busy, there is a good atmosphere. Equally it is a great place to come for a quiet meal.
Not much there for the kids. Don't forget this is a small village pub and limited with space. The locals are lively but not offensive. Some of the bar chat is hilarious and quite entertaining.
Parking is ample and the beer is good. Never had a bad pint there. Prices are comparable.
There is a much larger pub up the road called The Quint. But it is nowhere near as good as this little gem of a pub, despite the size advantage. In fact there are three places in this village to go for a pint and The Clomes is the preferred choice of locals and tourists alike. It is the cleanest pub of the three and the most welcoming.
If you are set for a pint and a meal, find yourself in Quintrell Downs and looking for the best pub? It would have to be the Two Clomes without a doubt.
Small pub, amazing service.

This is a lovely place for a drink but don't bother to eat there. The meals are not good, at all. They need to get a chef that knows how to cook & then maybe they will have a good trade, like it used to be years ago. In the summer they have a nice little garden area, full of flowers & hanging baskets, very pleasant on a warm evening.

Wow, Sunday Lunch was excellent
It was our first Sunday Lunch at the Two Clomes and we weren't disappointed, the best roast dinner we have eaten at a restaurant. My husband had the Minestrone Soup to start which was home cooked with big chunks of vegetables and great flavour, we all had Roast Beef which was cooked perfectly, the roast potatoes were scrummy, crispy on the outside and soft potato inside the Yorkshire Puddings were huge and tasted wonderful and last but not least the veg, not hard but cooked just as we liked it. Home made deserts which are just like your mum would make but that's all I am going to say as you need to try them for yourselves!
I have eaten here a few times on a week day for the odd work lunch and the food and service has always been excellent. The Pub has a lovely atmosphere and the owners & staff make you feel very welcome.
We would love to keep this place a secret and not tell anyone who has never visited but that would be unfair on the owners and staff as people need to pay this place a visit and see for themselves how excellent the food is.

We had a meal in the Two Clomes last week, it was very quick service food not bad, but under cooked chips. we were sat near the door which was open for smokers!!!! on a cold night , so we didn't stay for the free quiz.
