    Porterhouse steak was cooked to perfection and the Spagetti Gamberi was delicious. Our table waiter was professional and friendly.

    Went in for the Sunday roast after very solid online reviews. Nothing special, potatoes and peas were under done. The lamb alright, but pieces varied in terms of fattiness between us and was salty. Partners chicken also dry. Highlights were the cauliflower and the peppercorn gravy. The location and restaurant itself was lovely.

    Food was superb, ambience lovely, nice and warm on a cool day. Only issue was that we were rushed out at 2pm so that the table could be used by others, yet there was already another table available. After spending good money on drinks and food, sharing quality time with New Zealand guests who we hadn’t seen for four years, it was disappointing to be ushered out after 2 hours on a Sunday.

    This was my second visit to The Clare Castle. There are several locations for dining within the hotel, on my first visit we dined in the restaurant for an outstanding roast lunch. On our second visit we dined in the bar. Both locations were extremely comfortable with the same menu. The food is of a high standard and reasonably priced. The service and atmosphere are both excellent.
