A bit about us…

The Clarence Social is a recently opened, proudly independent venue in Cheltenham. Across 3 floors, our interiors are elegant yet playful, inspired by regency design ‘with a twist’ – with spaces available to book for eating, drinking, meeting or private parties. Our team of creative, passionate staff, serve our customers from brunch, lunch, through to dinner and late night drinks.

The Inspiration…

The Clarence Social concept started with owner Terry Croft having a simple desire to create a venue where people could meet for drinks, eat until late and continue to socialise late into the night in one venue.

We wanted to ensure our customers were looked after and all without the need to brave the great British weather or needing to leave and queue to get into a separate late night venue!

This vision has shaped everything from our beautiful interior, designed by the very clever people at Finch design (winners of best Bar design in the UK) to our food menu and drinks lists and our carefully selected kitchen and front of house teams.



Our food menus and drinks lists are designed by our passionate and creative team of hospitality professionals.

Our suppliers and ingredients are carefully considered.

Our venue has been designed to work from brunch, lunch and dinner to late night drinking.

Our mission has always been to create that place where you feel at home, appreciated and looked after whether it’s a coffee, after work drink or celebratory meal.
