WE NEED THE CLARENCE BACK FOR THE GAY COMMUNITY
I think it is bad that the clarence is no longer gay. it has been gay more than 10 yrs and they decide to get rid of us gay community from there. we only have one gay pub left and not every one goes there they like the clarence for there discos etc and we all had a choice of pubs to go to and now we dont. i think its discusting for us gay community to lose a gay pub for it to be turned into a pub for foriegners. where can we go now in bedford apart from the barley, i think its discrimating to the gay community. in other towns theres more than 2 gay pubs for gays to visit but here there aint and what about the gay people who cant travel outside bedford where will they go. i think if the gay community in bedford supported each other they will all get together and try and get the clarence back for the gay community and not let someone come in and take it away from us.ps the best times there was when russ and abby had it and tony and rick it was really buzzing at the weekends and there wasnt much trouble at all either if there was it was sorted out straight away. If we got that pub back for the gay community it would have to be runned by people who have had a lot of expierence in running pubs, decent staff and good entertainment on and listen to there customers what they think will be gd for the business and if they give to the community what they need they will respect and support back in the same way.

Tis Kewl!!
Cant believe what previous two people said & feel so moved i have to write something. First i want to correct a couple of things. 1) I think you'll find that it was rick & tony that ruined the clarry with their seedy escapades & forever chasing after young boys dressed in leather. Their whole reign was a sham & im glad theyve gone. Brad n Chris have worked wonders with that place, its a travesty that bedford are losin such gr8 guys.
2) Its cause of the kind of rubbish those last two spouted that the bedford gay scenes gotta bad name. Obviously from their tone they dont partake in it like the rest of us. Well im glad. Stay at home and spout ur poison there. Pathetic bitches.
As far as im concerned i cant wait for chris n brad to open their next gay place. Until then il be going to their str8 places because its obvious from the rubbish thats been said on here that me & the bedford gay scene need a trial seperation while it grows up. Well done B and C, u did a blinding job! At the end of the day no one else had the nuts to do it. I'd be bloody proud of what you achieved and of having ur own businesses so young. Wish i was like you when i was that age. As for the critics, let them fester in their own jealousy! Enough said! respect boyz, best of luck. Andrew x.

Downhill fast
It was great when Rick & Tony had it, and Russel & Abby, but since Rick & Tony left, it became really bad - best move now if it is pulled down and re-develloped - Bradleigh has ruined this venue for Bedford - hope he does not affect The Barley Mow in the same way!

GOOD GLAD YOUR GOING
I HOPE THIS PLACE GETS KNOCKED DOWN! IT'S BEEN BAD SINCE YOU STARTED AND GETTING YOUR STAFF TO WRITE STUFF ISNT GOING TO GET YOU ANYWHERE! YOU NEVER HEAR WHAT YOUR PUBLIC TELL YOU AND YOU WONDER WHY YOU HAVEN'T MADE ANY MONEY

Bradleigh's Bradleigh
I work at the Clarence and thought I would tell you chris and bradleigh are leaving. It has been a brilliant place to work with a fantastic team. These last two weeks will be your last chance to come down to the clarry as no one has bought the pub so it looks like it will be knocked down. To anyone who is interested we are celebrating world aids day tomorrow night and having a massive leaving party for chris and Bradleigh next Saturday the 9th. Thank you for the support. x x

I love it!
Im glad the previous two queens don't go anymore. The atmosphere is so much better now all the bitching is gone. The boys who've got it at the mo do a brilliant job and its one of the friendliest places ive been too. When i first started goin a year ago i was only 19 and i hadnt been to many places but its intimidating finding somewhere to go when you first come out. The landlords and their staff made me and my m8s feel so welcome, the music was wicked and i even came home with money in my pocket so it turned out to be a cheap nite out too. Go almost every week now and love Chris and Brad to bits. Well done guys, keep ignoring the idiots!! You do a gr8 job and everyone loves ya! Mwah!!!!

i think it was much better with the previous people. fantastic atmosphere then, everyone getting to know each other. as the then landlods of the pub mingled with the patrons every night, 7 nights a week. gosh i miss the good old days of when the clarence was buzzing, hip n friendly.

Have to agree with Joe
I now go to london, e.g G.A.Y cause there is nothing in Bedford anymore for gay people. Nothing like it used to be when Abby and Russ were here!

still a grat place to go
totally disagree with joe, its the best place in the loac area. never seen any trouble and i go in every week. security are great. the music is camp and cheesy on a friday and clubby on a saturday, so something for everyone. chris and bradleigh are really welcoming and so are the whole team. well recommended. clarencebedford.com is their website so you can see for yourself

Gone down hill
Used to be the place to go, but now music isn't as good and always trouble. Better off going out of town.
