The Clarence Yard Story

Clarence Yard is an iconic location within Southend-on-Sea, with a rich history to match.

Clarence Yard opened as a Bakery in the late 19th Century and over the years has had many identities, including a stationers, flour mill and a bar. The building has become an iconic location within Southend’s community, known by multiple
generations for one of its many faces all of which contributing to it’s rich history. In 2016 the building was purchased by Stockvale, who were eager to restore the Clarence Yard to its former glory and ensured that they had the people who knew
how. A full restoration began of the exterior and interior and after extensive work was completed in October of 2017 and opened as a high-quality, family friendly restaurant. With a car park only 100m away and just a quick walk it’s the ideal location for a great meal.

The Britannia Story

Fish and Chips, the quintessential British dish, usually served with a disproportional spray of salt and more than a splash of vinegar, then wrapped in yesterdays newspaper. Well it’s moved on.
May we introduce Heritage Fish and Chips, taking our much loved national dish and serving it in the way it should be served.
We believe Fish and Chips should be: Tasty and delicious without being overpowering, simple, yet presented with style and we hope you agree.
With a promise to provide wholesome tasty food at affordable prices, where better to enjoy this than in the heart of Southend-on-Sea in the surroundings of this beautifully restored Victorian building.

Our delicious Fish and Chips can also be enjoyed at Pavillion Fish & Chip Emporium, which is based at Adventure Island.
