About Us


Freshly Renovated and Warmly Inviting.

The Clare Castle is under new management and the Bar, Restaurant, Wine Lounge, Bathrooms and Kitchen have all undergone a beautiful renovation to restore this 1870's pub to its former glory.


Pub Food at its very best.

The warmly inviting restaurant is serving a whole new standard of pub food. Of course, we have the Pub classics like Chicken and Veal Parmas, Cutlets, Burgers and Steak Sandwiches. But we raise the bar with our Signature Moreton Bay Bugs, Beautiful Fresh Fish, Potato Gnocchis, an amazing selection of steaks and much, much more.


The Home of the Moreton Bay Bug

The Clare Castle is the home of the Moreton Bay Bug. From beautiful Grilled Bugs (Entree and Main), Bug Tacos, Bug Turkish Bread Pizza to a sensational Garlic & Chilli Bug Spaghetti. You have to try our Moreton Bay Bugs.


Beautiful Wine Lounge

Our Wine Lounge is a beautiful and relaxing space. Grab a glass or a bottle of wine, a scotch or maybe a beer and enjoy this beautiful quiet space. Great for a pre or post dinner drink or a catch up and chat with friends. The lounge is available for private gatherings or as a private dining room, just call us to discuss.


Cold Beer and Beautiful Wines.

The bar has a relaxing feel that caters to all.

From our main bar with a relaxing feel and a beautiful wine wall to our TAB section that offers all the racing action with discrete on site TAB facilities.

We have the best beer in Melbourne! Our Glycol system ensures a beautiful cold beer every time with great beers like Peroni, 4 Pines, Moon Dog, Melbourne Bitter, Blonde, Great Northern and, of course, Carlton Draught.


The Family Friendly Pub

The whole family will enjoy The Clare Castle.

We have great pub classics that older kids just adore and for the younger ones we have a great value kids menu with $10 meals and $2.50 Soft Drinks.
