Description
The Clifford Arms is owned by Dominic and Clare de Suys. It is a combination of the former and much loved Coffee Rush and the traditional approach of the Clifford Arms. Now operating as a continental style café bar serving from 9 am to 11 pm daily with a short closure between 4 and 5 pm to allow us to prepare for the evening. We serve breakfast and light lunches daily and dinner on Friday and Saturday evenings. Sunday lunch is also served and it is particularly popular when we host a jazz group. Monday nights are reserved for jazz (please see list or ring for dates and names of artistes)
