Watervale Hotel

Clare Valley

The Watervale Hotel in the heart of the Clare Valley wine region has become one of the most exciting Food and Wine experience destinations in Australia.
This has been recognized by winning 20 awards since re-opening in September 2020 most recently the '2022 Best Restaurant in a Pub or Club in Australia' (RCA), as well as the '2021 Best Wine List in Australian Country Pub', and '2022 Best Tourism Restaurant' (TicSA).
Our offering is farm-to-plate, sourced from a number of local farms including our own organic, bio-dynamic Penobscot Farm operated to permaculture principles. Our Penobscot Farm Tour and Degustation was awarded '2022 Best Food Tourism' (TicSA).
2022 'SA Chef of the Year' Chef Nicola Palmer and her team of international Chef's know that their role is to enhance and enrich the authentic flavours mother nature has gifted us.
