About Us


Freshly Renovated and Warmly Inviting.

The Clare Castle is under new management and the Bar has undergone a beautiful renovation to restore this 1870's pub to its former glory.


Cold Beer and much, much more.

The renovated main bar has a relaxing feel that caters to all.

The wine walled premium bar serves beers like Peroni, Pirate Life Port Local & Pure Blonde as well as beautiful wines with Fox Sports entertainment. The TAB bar serves old favourites like Melbourne Bitter, & Carton Draught with all the action of Sky Racing with TAB facilities.

There is something for everyone at The Clare Castle.


Pub Food at its best - Returns End of June

The beautifully renovated restaurant is soon to be matched with a brand new kitchen. This means our kitchen is temporarily closed, but we look forward to seeing you at the end of June to serve you from our brand new state of the art kitchen with cooking by our new chef the legendary Shane Maher.

Remember though that in the meantime the bar is still serving Melbourne's coldest beer and sensational wines.
