Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Clock

Basic corner local with remnants of 'under new ownership' signage outside. The 'L'-shaped bar - with a single step up at the mid-point - is sparsely furnished but tidy enough. There is another small room off to one side with a counter from the same servery and a side room off the other branch which was in darkness when I stopped by. No real ale, unfortunately, so made do with a quick Worthington's (£3.00).

Soup Dragon left this review about The Clock

This is a Victorian corner pub with patio area. It was originally named the Moseley Arms Hotel, before becoming the New Moseley Arms (Old Moseley Arms is just down the road) and finally, The Clock. The pub is in cream brick, with a lower, green, facade, which has moulded pilasters and a corner entrance (now disused). The interior has a couple of rooms, to the right and left of the entrance. The right is the bar, which is an L-shaped room in cream and green walls, with a wood floor. It has a few Irish bits of memorabilia on the walls, as well as a couple of old photos. There is a TV, which had the footy on. At the end of the room there is an old snug, which has had the door removed and entrance made a little wider - i think this is in a salmon colour and had a fireplace and old prints on the walls. The room to the left is the lounge - but has a pool table and dart board. There is a TV too, but this wasn't on. Both rooms have bench seating. There was no music. The service was very friendly and a few locals were in. Beer; no real ale, just the usual tap stuff with a decent enough M&B MILD. The inside has a very traditional feel - it is another locals pub and Irish themed. I am happy i popped in, but nothing for the real ale drinker.
