Dating back to the 18th century, this was the first of a number of inns that stood at 130 High Street opposite Holy Rood Church. It changed its name to The Bugle in c.1833 and finally became the Clarence Hotel in c.1839, probably in honour of William IV (formerly the Duke of Clarence) who died in 1837. The original building was demolished in the 1950s and replaced by an entirely new inn named the Clarence Bars. This closed down in 1982, but the building still stands.
