Clermont is a small city in Florida, west of Orlando. Clermont, which is known as the “gem of the hills,” is surrounded by gently sloping hills in an otherwise flat state. The historic downtown has not changes much in 50 years. Clermont is also home to one of the first constructed landmarks in Florida: the Citrus Tower. When you are settled into Clermont, plan a visit the Citrus Tower. It was built in 1956 on one of the highest hills in the area and serves as a monument to Florida’s citrus industry. It stands 226 feet high and has a glass-enclosed observation deck at the top. You can also visit the Showcase of Citrus to pick your own oranges or take an eco-tour in a giant swamp buggy and enjoy a glimpse into Florida’s past. The entire family will enjoy a perfect day in the citrus groves. When visiting Clermont, be sure to visit Revolution: The Off-Road Experience. It is a unique off-road motor and sports venue perfect for families staying in vacation rentals in the area. You can ride ATVs and dune buggies, water ski, or go bass fishing. In Clermont, you can hike, bike, go boating, or drop your line in a lake and wait for the fish to bite. Play a round of golf on one of the many world-class golf courses in the area. Lakeridge Winery is Florida’s largest premium winery and offers winery tours and wine tastings seven days a week. A visit to the President’s Hall of Fame, with wax figures and White House memorabilia, is a perfect afternoon trip. A short drive away from Clermont, is Disney World, Sea World, Universal Studios, and the bustling city of Orlando.

The Friar Tuck which is located in the Four Corners area of Clermont opened its doors in February of 2017. This quaint little English Cafe and market was the vision of Nottingham native and owner/operator Rebecca to create a warm and cozy café. The Friar Tuck is serving up fresh homemade treats from England, here in the heart of Central Florida. The Friar Tuck creates homemade English classics as well as many present day, hand crafted specialties. Known for their pies, such as Steak & Mushroom and Chicken Curry amongst others, as well as Cornish Pasty’s, custom sandwiches, soups and fresh cream desserts just like home. The little market is plentiful with items like real Cadbury Chocolates, Crisps, Biscuits, Jams and other hard to find UK groceries. A Proper English Breakfast on the weekends and a Traditional Sunday Roast are a must! Whether you are an ex-pat, or just love English food, you will certainly enjoy the traditional tastes of England found here.
On holiday from England for two weeks. Love the English food. We have been visiting At least twice a year for the past 25 years. The only thing we miss from England is the food. Love the full English breakfast, the home made pasties, pies and cake BLT with the potatoe salad yum. I am looking forward to Sunday and a roast dinner. Friendly Engish staff.
Keep it up girls it’s a big from me

This Bar and Grill is ideally situated on the lake waters edge with beautiful views. The majority of the eating is outdoors and sometimes the table look dirty. As someone who tends to judge a place by their toilets - the toilets here are a disgrace which makes me wonder how clean and hygienic the kitchen is.. Nevertheless the food is always tasty and reasonably priced.

I was pleasantly surprised to find this little gem tucked away in Clermont! I brought my 14 year old granddaughter for her first experience with India cuisine and I couldn’t have asked for a better introduction for her! The restaurant itself is bright and open....MoreThank you! Glad you enjoyed and we hope you come to see us next time in Clermont!

I don't usually care for fried fish so I went with the Mahi mahi grilled salad. A fantastic choice. Fish was moist and flavorful. Iceberg lettuce, tomato and cucumber were fresh. My wife had the chicken and chips basket since she is not keen on most fish. Two large pieces, she claims, tasted fantastic. The chips are more like American steak fries not the English pub style (there still good). Mother-in-law and aunt did have the fish and chips said they were done very well. Please be aware of the hours, this location closes at 8pm, parking along with seating (on stools) is very, very limited. I will be back to try other items.

Our group had the gyro express (gyro with fries and soda for 9.99), gyro platter ( gyro with 2 sides),chicken kebabs- all delicious and generous portions. This is a family establishment with very reasonable prices and is sparkling clean. Very much liked the gyro meat which is moist half beef half lamb-tasty, not salty or dry. They have take- out service. We will definitely be back!

My husband and I visited on our first night in Clermont and our meal was awesome! We had the ribs with baked beans, potato salad, and collard greens. Everything was really wonderful! The ribs were perfectly seasoned and cooked. The sides were good but the greens were terrific! Service was friendly and helpful. Our visit was excellent and we will definitely return on our next visit to Clermont.

Service was fantastic and welcoming. The recommendations for sushi far exceeded my expectations. I finally discovered Honey Chicken done right. Very well done, and I WILL be driving the 45 minutes it takes to get here at least once a week. I'm addicted!

If you're in Clermont and looking for an authentic Cuban experience check out Troy's. At Troy's we offer an authentic experience with a healthy twist. The menu at Troy's is designed to cater to those who demand healthy, fresh, flavorful food. We only use all-natural, hormone-free, antibiotic-free ingredients.
We found Troy's Cuban Deli several years ago and just frequented it again when we visited Florida. The food was still absolutely exceptional! The Cuban sandwich, the smoked, pulled pork, the red beans and rice, the flan -- oh my goodness! We felt like we had escaped to Cuba for an authentic lunch! We ended up running some errands and before we left town, my husband drove back to Troy's Cuban Deli to order two more plates of food to take home! The portions are huge and delicious! We had several more meals to enjoy!!! There are booths and tables in the restaurant which is located at the end unit of a strip mall by the Citrus Tower. It is not fancy but it is clean and well managed. I HIGHLY recommend this delicious restaurant! ENJOY!

Friendly service and awesome ribs. Don't miss this terrific restaurant. You can also get barbecued chicken, fish as specials and good sides including salads, fries and sweet potato. There are other locations near here but the one in Clermont is our favorite.
