We've walked past this pub many times before. However, not being great drinkers, it took a positive review in a newspaper before I could convince anyone to eat there with me. We were not disappointed. The interior furnishings and service at the Clare Inn is exactly what you would expect in any pub, but the main dishes we have tried have always exceeded our expectations: absolutely delicious, well presented and also very reasonably priced.
The offerings include familiar favourites, such as a Sunday Roast Special or a Mushroom and Blue Cheese Risotto. These are what you might make at home, but are well executed and beautifully decorated with fresh herbs or a similar garnish.
|Chef's Special: Roast Beef with Yorkshire Pudding and all the Trimmings|
|Mushroom Risotto with Spinach, Blue Cheese and Parmesan|
|Slow Roast Duck with Pickled Beetroot, Courgette & Parsnip Fritter with Blood Orange Marmalata|
|Fish of the Day: Panfried Blue Warehou with Hot Smoked Salmon Wontons and Blue Cheese and Fennel Coleslaw|
Mains: Chef's Special: Roast Beef with Yorkshire Pudding and all the Trimmings ($19), Fish of the Day: Panfried Blue Warehou with Hot Smoked Salmon Wontons and Blue Cheese and Fennel Coleslaw ($26), Slow Roast Duck with Pickled Beetroot, Courgette & Parsnip Fritter with Blood Orange Marmalata ($27.50), Eye Fillet Roasted with Two Mushroom Ragout, Garlic and Parsley Champ & Truffle Oil ($33.50)
Not a great variety of options for you here. The modified Pasta of the Day: Mushroom Risotto with Spinach, Blue Cheese and Parmesan ($16.50) was excellent though.
