Purveyors without Palaver

Clunes’ historic Criterion Hotel is now a café by day and restaurant by night.

Quigley & Clarke retains the original 1860s charm while embracing modern sensibilities.

Our earthy establishment is a real place of welcome where you can join us for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  

The wine list is extensive and the foodstuffs delicious, with an honest, seasonal menu inspired by homegrown and regional produce.

Drop by or settle in for an experience of understated elegance and convivial conversation.

Our Incredible Staff

The Quigley & Clarke ethos is earthy and real. We’re connected to the local community and the land where we grow or source our regional produce.

Our business owners have backgrounds in nursing and event catering so we’re big on care and logistics. That means attention to you and attention to detail.

We’ve assembled a skilled and down to earth team to share quality café and restaurant experiences with you.

We also put our green thumbs to good use and our sustainability principles into practice.

The Three Cs

Our three chefs are curious, creative and classy menu makers.


Hamish (Exec Chef) Kyle and Johnny bring diversity to our classic fare and quality cuisine.

Baristas of Repute

Paul leads our team of aficionados.


The blessed brew can make or break your day so we treat your leaf tea, home blend or single origin coffee with all due respect.

Our head honchos

Donall is the Mr. Quigley of our operation, and he runs the show during the day.


You’ll come across Steve not-Clarke in the evenings, as the amiable dinner host.

Front of house

The folks who welcome you here prefer to think of you as guests, not customers.


Our attention to all the things means you get a great eatery experience.
