The food is great and the service personal. We had such a great experience a couple of weeks ago, we just had to return, and were not disappointed! The Moreton bay bugs are to die for, the wine selection is good too. Annie our waitress was fantastic and recognised us upon our return which made us feel a little special!

We had an enjoyable evening meal at the Clare Castle. The service was friendly and relaxed, while the food and drinks were nice and reasonably priced. It’s clear that the team are working hard and will turn the Clare Castle in to local we can all be proud of. Well done team!

The entree of prawn spring rolls were great with a very nice dipping sauce. The other entree we shared were the bug tails on rice, absolutely magnificent. The mains of lamb cutlets were great & very filling, the mint sauce was special. The other main was a crumbed veal snitzel which was OK.

We were a group of 6 and dined around 7 pm. Our waitress was Jocelyn and we were also served by Amanda. Both were very friendly and efficient throughout the evening. The food was delicious and plentiful. We had several bottles of red wine which were both excellent. Thanks for a great night.
