Clarence Yard is one of Southend's premier social venues, a popular authentic courtyard bar with plenty of atmosphere.
Located in the centre of Southend, close to the railway station, the building was originally a mid-to-late 1800s bakery - the yard was used as a loading bay and stabling area for horses.
Over the last few years, the building has been restored and renovated, retaining the original stone courtyard, to include two freehouse bars serving a fine selection of wines and beers and an open kitchen serving contemporary meals from lunchtime through to the evening.
During the evenings, the main bar sees some of the area's premier DJs playing lively soul and funk sets to an appreciative audience comprised of people from all age groups.
The first floor is also available for private functions - please call us on 01702 392 153 for details of availability.
We hope you will enjoy your visit to Clarence Yard - one of Southend's best-kept secrets.
