back in the 70's, this was a hangout for hippies. Always a great atmosphere and had great memories. Of course this has changed hugely but it was always a back street pub with a special atmosphere all of its own

Corner pub in compact inner suburb. Reasonable selection of well kept beers. Affable locals. Not sure if they do food.

Like others I do not understand why this good old pub has been removed from the Nightlife section where it ought to be with all the other popular local taverns. The Clifton is friendly warm busy and sells good beer.

This is a very good much loved traditional Greenbank pub which was one of the first entries in the original 'Nightlife' section. Why it has been moved to 'Attractions' beat us regulars. Tripadvisor, please put it back with the othe pubs and clubs.
