Called in for a tea when passing through. Elegant cafe with friendly and quick service. Good pot of tea, scone and toasted tea cake. Tea cake came open with butter in separate dish; would have preferred tea cake buttered while hot, but a minor quibble.

Barnard Castle is full of interesting shops, and right in the middle of them is Clarendon's. Had the Stilton and broccoli soup which came with bread and croutons. Very tasty, and highly recommended. Cheerful and efficient staff, too!

Always a lovely visit. Foods lovely, great atmosphere, polite staff, just a shame the prices aren't that bit cheaper. But the foods worth it though! I always love the chicken and bacon club sandwich.

It was a very rainy day when we ate at Clarendon's which added to the charm. The food was excellent; fresh and tasty. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. There is a charming gift store in restaurant as well.
