The food was great, 25 of us had a meal there on Saturday night and every one I spoke to commented favourably about their meals. The host was very friendly and obliging and even found me my favourite stout. They had a band that started about 10 pm and even though a bit loud played some tunes we could dance... More

We spent the weekend in Clare and visited this hotel to spend an evening enjoying the local hospitality. Whilst we had heard good reports about the meals we chose not to dine and instead spent our time enjoying a few drinks and playing the pokies waiting for the dj to start. This was a mistake we were met in the... More

A few days in Clare. Where to eat? We checked out the eating places in the main street and were attracted by the Stone Grill special on Tuesday nights. Old heritage building with interesting decor. Warm fire and friendly service. The food was good and we weren't the only ones enjoying the stone grill judging by the number going past... More

The roast of the day for $11.95 was lamb - so scrumptious - a generous serving which melted in the mouth. No hesitation advising anyone to try this meal. Tomato and vegie soup was also very good for a chilly night.

We had a meal in the Bistro where the service was good and meals reasonably prompt. However, that's about where the accolades finished. The food was very ordinary and definitely overpriced for what was served. There was also a very unpleasant "smell" in the room, a bit like rising damp or mould.

We were here for drinks and dinner for a family function. I ordered from the specials menu - grilled barra with pistachio and chilli butter. The fish was a little over cooked for my liking and wasn't as fresh as I hoped for. The pistachio and chilli butter could have been a little bit more hotter and it could have... More

Had dinner on Friday night, it was pretty quiet. Wine by the glass options were limited and pretty terrible considering it's the centre of a wine region. My husband had the hot stone steak, he really enjoyed it. I had the beef noodles and they were very average. Veggies tasted like they were past their best. Food did come out... More

The good first. The friendly service was excellent. Prices for drinks were very reasonable. It appears to be a family run business and they do a great job. We only stayed on night for a break on our long drive home. Glad we did. We struck the evening of the Stone Grill special and we were not disappointing. I was... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch with my partner, we just had a schnitzel and coke each. Both ladies behind the bar/till were lovely and very accommodating. The salad on the plate for lunch very much exceeded my expectation. Loved the entire meal and sitting outside was lovely!

Had friends from the UK with us and tried the stone-grill. Great service and great food. The steak was tender and delicious and the beers cold. Could not fault food or service. The outdoor eating area was also pleasant and allowed us to take in the ambiance of the town.
