We are all about Ethical Epicurean Experiences. Our offering is a farm to plate genuine, fresh food, sourced from a number of local farms including our own organic, bio-dynamic Penobscot Farm operated to permaculture principles. Our team of international Chef's know there job is to enhance and enrich the natural flavours mother nature has given us.
We offer all day dining with three different menu options -

3. A la carte menu.
Our wine list is amazing, representing almost every winemaker in Clare and every variety grown in the region, plus an impressive list of international wines.
The Watervale Hotel has beautifully renovated private, casual and formal dining bar and lounge spaces, as well as a verandah bar, beer garden surrounded by food theatre, wine room, and an old Gaol re-purposed for private dining and functions.
The kitchen is massive and includes in-kitchen dining that is intended for cooking demonstrations (subject to COVID regulations), and we have a massive Argentinean style BBQ and Wood Oven that we use to roast, grill, rotisserie and smoke.
