The Clifden

Whilst the beer garden in this Jewellery Quarter pub may be more than a fair mile away from traditional with it's commissioned graffiti pieces and vintage neon bingo signs, the pub out front still retains a mahogany charm. A cosy boozer outfront with raw brick work an lather upholstery, The Lord Clifden stays true to its traditional roots.
