Watervale Hotel guests can enjoy our Degustation by simply selecting the items they want to try from our list and we will bring one portion for each guest.
This allows the table to order a selection off our menu, a great way to ‘Taste the Clare Valley”.
For those looking to try our very local wines we recommend the Watervale Paired Wine Degustation. This includes a 60ml glass of Watervale wine with a different variety with each course, expertly matched by our in house sommelier.

I went with my family to the Watervale Hotel near Clare for lunch . The food was amazing all local products and their service was excellent and Sophie the waitress assistant manager was so lovely. The owner made us feel very welcome and special and came over to talk to us. Very old and quaint hotel with lots of character such an enjoyable lunch and hospitality

Gabby Gleeson

This is now a regular place for me and my family! The food has been consistently fantastic! The owners are lovely and always make you feel welcome. OMG try the duck sliders! - so fresh and the meat just melts in your mouth. The filo cigars are packed full of flavour and go beautifully with the yoghurt dipping sauce. The arancini balls are so yummy! - had to stop myself from eating all of them! It was the first time we had tried the ribs and they didn’t disappoint... beautifully seasoned and the meat fell of the bone without being dry. Thanks guys.... we’ll be back soon!


One of the joys of vising Barcelona, Spain, is the exquisite range of Tapas in restaurants. Imagine my delight to find that new management of the Watervale Hotel has introduced a tapas menu. You choose four different tapas for $20 or, as we chose to add a glass of Clare Valley wine of our choice and dessert for $32.00. These tapas are delightful to look upon and tasty. We met the young chef, too, which was an added pleasure. So nice to find something different from the usual pub food. Lamb cigars, for instance, surely had a Spanish influence. Classy addition to the Clare Valley food offerings.

I went here today as I was told the now do a tapas-style menu which I love. Oh... My... Goodness!! It was wonderful! We had Arancini, Duck Sliders, Spiced Lamb Cigars and Mini homemade Pies. So much flavour!! The chef is a credit to them! Beautifully cooked and we did not leave at all hungry. Really fantastic wine list stocking lots of local wines from the Clare Valley. I had never been here before but now I can thoroughly recommend it to anyone! I’m looking forward to the new and exciting things this pub will have to offer


We had 5 dishes and each and every one was just impeccable - not a fault with anything. The food was absolutely amazing and the service matched. This hotel is a must to visit for food if you are in the Clare Valley area - it's not your regular pub.


We shared 3 amazing tapas plates between the 2 of us - arancini, lamb cigars and portobello mushrooms and chick peas. Nice to find something more interesting than a boring schnitzel. We’ll definitely come back!
