Been to a Clare Inn about 5 occasions and they have been consistent with serving great tasting food and great hospitality. Since it’s an Irish join you can’t do without their Guinness. The steaks are great.
Not many places to get a beef Wellington in Auckland, and unfortunately the Clare Inn’s version, while having some unique Irish adaptation, was a bit underwhelming. The beef was dry and hot, maybe microwaved. The ambience isn’t the best too, unfortunately - sticky and rough furniture and outdated decor. This place has a lot of potential. The recipes are good, just need a bit more craft and diligence.
Best pub food ever! Our go to and one of our favourites. Always happy with their food! Can be busy but they always deliver with standard. Thumbs up!
