The Clarendon, situated just minutes from Portobello Road, is the newest cocktail lounge bar and restaurant to hit this upmarket area. With a gorgeous, intimate rooftop, you cannot go past this venue for an afterwork pint and snack.
Scanning the menu we suggest you get a little naughty and opt for the fried variety of Garlic & Parsley Frites and Flash Fried Squid. Costing a total of £10 makes it an affordable Friday afternoon treat.
The service is fantastic and the wait staff adhere to your requests intently, insuring that you are satisfied on all levels. It does not take long for your order to come out (I believe we waited for approximately 10 minutes). Our Frites (or fries as you will) and squid emerged on a rustic board with a side of sweet chilli sauce and what tasted similar to an aioli. This was the perfect side to our ciders. The squid was fresh and the fries were crunchy, what more could you possibly ask for.
When you are at The Clarendon make sure you venture to the rooftop, as the view and ambience go hand in hand, whilst you sit back and look forward to the weekend ahead.
