The Swan Inn, High Street, Clare

From the outside, the most distinctive feature of this pub is the fourfold
chimney, which you can see from the top of Clare Castle mound a few
hundred yards away.
On the inside, the most distinctive feature is the size of the open
fireplace. It's not much smaller than the footprint of The Nutshell
in Bury. There's a sign on the door to warn parents not to let their
small children run about, fall over face first and incinerate themselves.
Greene King standards available, and some food. The huffers on
the menu are enormous triangular lumps of bread and probably more than
many people can eat.
