The Lord Clyde succeeds in keeping its old-fashioned boozer character even while transitioning to gastropub status. Locals pile in at weekends for a quiet pint (the small corner room’s the place to go) or Sunday roasts in the big back dining room. Gin is a speciality, with twenty on the list, including a strong showing of smaller distilleries.
