About The Clockhouse


Up until 2002, the building that the Clockhouse Bar occupies was in fact a Barclays bank, built in 1929.

Situated opposite the village green, the bar is central to East Preston with its independent array of restaurants, shops and businesses, and literally a 2 minute walk to the sailing club and the beautiful beach.
The working clock above the bar is a kept war memorial, dedicated to those who lost their lives in the Great Wars.

Food & Drink

Between 12 noon and 6pm, 7 days a week, The Clockhouse Bar provides a lunchtime menu of soups and hot snacks. Cold platters and sandwiches are also available from the Clockhouse Deli next door, and are welcome to be eaten in the bar itself.
