Arranged a catch up with friends for lunch and we stayed for dinner !

What a great pub and the roast was amazing - so much food and just like a really good home made roast meal. There were two roasts to choose from on the day we visited Lamb or beef - most of the group of 10 we were with had roast beef - it was so very good !

The roast had cauliflower cheese, heaps of meat, peas, roast potatoes and pumpkin ...also a Yorkshire pudding - it was so delicious ! I asked the staff for some horseradish and they had it (amazing) and happily brought me some to enjoy with my meal - staff fabulous

So impressed at our lunch and the roast that we have book another group lunch (different friends) this Sunday - just cant wait

The food was excellent and the staff absolutely lovely. As British people we are very picky about Sunday Roast but we were so impressed! Best we've had in 10 years in Australia.
The only negative was that the air conditioning was on quite high which made our food cool too quickly. This may have just been where our table was situated.

I think I have found the best Sunday roast in Melbourne!!! Just the Yorkshire alone will put any pom me included to shame! The beef nicely cooked to perfection, cauliflower cheese yummy, potatoes yummy, gravy well seasoned , Yorkshire....perfect!

Everything about this gastronomic experience is close to perfection! Every bit worth coming and paying public transport because it is outside the free tram zone. Very leafy and quiet location! Clean, well spaced seatings, very nice staffs, just book to save yourself stress as it can be busy. Indoor and outdoor seating, pub and restaurant area.

Price reasonable and had a great time! Will def come back!

Two adults ordering main meals.. bar special pie and chips, and burger. Flavour is good but not overly exciting for a five star. Staff proficient but not overly excited service. Bland service. Good price for the food.

We went to Clares Castle recently with a group of friends and loved it so much we came back for a dinner.

Lovely staff and food is delicious and fresh. Such a hidden gem and we will definitely be back. Highly recommend the bugs and steak. Service is quick and friendly.

Highly recommend!

Very calm place, no loud music whilst trying to eat or chat.
Food excellent, service great, staff just need to be aware we as customers can hear everything they say ?

Great local pub with a cozy friendly atmosphere. Restaurant section was nice, however we sat in the front bar with the rugby. Our 9 year old was with us and that was completely fine. She had the burger off the kids menu and literally inhaled it and as she is super fussy this was a good sign it was tasty.

This is a great pub for few different reasons. It caters very well to the locals, has a great outdoor area that captures the evening sun, a pretty unique "Wine Style" room that has a open fire and Chesterfields (Made me want to light a cigar) and the food, although a little on the expensive side ($32 for a pasta dish) is amazing. They have done a truely wonderful job of making this a comfortable local pub. The staff are generally great (There is one grumpy member who make you feel like she would rather be elsewhere). I highly recommend the steaks (Eye Fillet $44 & Rib Eye $56) but the whole menu won't disappoint.

Incredible meal - our table had steaks and bugs, and the rib eye skewers (the satay was seriously delicious!) all of which is highly recommend! Also lovely ambience and service all round - I want to come back to try the Sunday roast as they looked so good. Really family friendly and the staff were so accomodating of our pram and didn't make us feel in the way. Highly recommend!

I was recommended by a friend to try out the Sunday roast , and I was no disappointed. Undoubtably one of the best and reasonably priced roasts I have ever had at a restaurant (and I have tried a lot). The dining area is lovely to sit in, or there is the more casual pub area . Friendly staff and an overall lovely dining experience. I will be going back and I will be 100% recommending to others .

Went here last night. For a quick dinner.
Food was just good.
Garlic bread very good
Chicken Schnitzel good.
I asked if vegetables can be served instead of salad. Answer yes but l was not made aware l would be charged an extra $12. An then to make it worse bristle spouts. The only vegetable l don't like. A childhood historic thing😩
I did not complain maybe I should have mentioned . I still left tip as the service was friendly efficient.
The meal did not say come again soon however.
But I would say others will enjoy.
So do try and be sure you have more dialog with staff.

Good value for money for today's inflationary prices. Food standardquality a little hit & miss, but generally good across the 3x dishes we had.
Would go back again and would definitely recommend if the manager was more friendly.

This would have to be one of the best Sunday roasts I've ever eaten...beef with Yorkshire pudding or pork with crackling... the Morton bay bug sliders are delicious for entree and the desserts are yum if you can fit one in!!! ... the menu is extensive if you can look past the roast...

Meals were priced well for the size. Main meal for me was a chicken parma, very nice. Dessert, sticky date pudding, I am sorry was not nice, I could not finish it. My dinner companion had the lamb, very delicious! Their dessert was the lemon tart, that was yummy. All up great vibe for a Monday night, we will be back again.

Really well thought out menu utilising the best of land and sea! Ordered the lamb shank which fell off the bone and passed the test. Also got the Marinara which I'm not sure was worth $37 but the seafood was delightful

Overall delicious and will come back for the steak!

The Clare is a fantastic local pub. Excellent staff/service and delicious food. The private room is a great venue for a group event ... great atmosphere.

A tad pricey is the food. Disappointed with the $50 eye fillet. The steak was bang on perfect but it was served with almost a plateful of shop bought frozen chips strewn all over the plate. Awful chips and presentation ordinary. Bill was incorrect. Staff a little too familiar and a long time between courses. Otherwise the overall experience was fine.

Dined in the fantastic private room on Saturday night, easily seating 14 of us.
The entrées and mains through to dessert were delicious!
My 1/2 a dozen oysters were as fresh as could be.
I wanted the ribeye for my main but my nephew scored the last remaining one.
I'm sure it was cooked as good as my scotch fillet.
The Clare Castle has seen some big changes but they are all great changes for this local iconic pub in Port Melbourne.
