OK, let me say straight off that the Clare Castle just isn't really my sort of pub. Somehow a wall of racing screens and garish red stools designed for optimum betting pleasure isn't an atmosphere that enhances my drinking pleasure.
Up until very recently, the Clare was one of two pubs competing for the traditional wharfie custom on the Northern side of the tram tracks. Its survival is a testament to the enduring loyality of its sport loving punters.Beers on tap: Carlton Draught - what else could a man possibly need?
