Clarence is top dog

Scott Collins is celebrating this week after his newest London pub won the very coveted 'Pub of the Year' award in the Evening Standard. The Clarence is a large, welcoming, friendly place named after Collins's dog. The decor is stylish, there is a large range of interesting beers and wines (all supplied by Bibendum) and the food is top notch.

One of the judges, Gregg Wallace, was particularly impressed: "The Clarence makes no attempt to be a restaurant. Someone has given a great deal of thought to producing great pub food."

Al Murray (the famed 'pub landlord') agreed, "The pub food really impressed. This may be something of a bar in pub's clothing but, even so, it is remarkably successful."

The Clarence is a busy place and manages to combine all the virtues of a really good local pub with a modern and unstuffy feel - this may well be an early example of a new breed of pubs.

The Juice suggests you get down there sharpish...
