Description: Beautiful location on the Murray River 10 minutes from Mandurah and less than an hour from Perth straight down the freeway. Excellent food & friendly service. Ideal setting for weddings with rose gardens and river backdrop and an illuminated glass dance floor in the upstairs function room for the reception. Having a Tavern licence you are able to drop in just for a drink if you prefer - by road or just tie your boat up to the jetty. Check the website for menus and opening hours.

We only put the ribs on the menu this week! How lovely to have such a positive review so soon. I think the smokey apple cider sauce is what makes them so special, our chefs have been working for some time to get the sauce just right before putting them on the menul. Thank you very much for the lovely review Wandera, we are pleased you enjoyed them! Your photo of the sunset is spectacular, thank you also for sharing that with us. We enjoy looking after our customers and having a friendly chat when we have time, so we are looking forward to your regular visits.

“Working my way through the menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013 via mobile

Myself and my family ate at the clansman on a Saturday lunch time. Although the restaurant was busy the waitstaff were still very attentive and happy to help with our group. We sat outside over looking the river and the children were kept entertained with the garden games that the restaurant had very kindly provided. I had ordered the vegetable curry which was fantastic, arrived with rice, naan bread and 2 other dips, it tasted as good as it looked. My family were also very happy with their meals and we have all been back to eat since. 10/10 from us!

Thank you so much for your lovely review Jackie. We are glad you and your family all enjoyed your meals and that the children were able to play and amuse themselves while the adults enjoyed their meals. We have a great team of staff and we are pleased that you were well looked after. The Vegetable Curry is very popular with vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike and is indeed one of my favourites. We look forward to seeing you all again soon so you can 'work your way through the menu' some more!.

“Amazing Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013 via mobile

What a beautiful place to have dinner, the surroundings just sum up why I moved to Australia. The food was excellent, you could see that it was made from scratch and not from a jar, so much effort was put into the presentation. The owner was lovely, he came and spoke to us for a while and greeted us as we came in.

Thank you Nick for taking the time to write such a lovely review. We are glad you enjoyed your freshly prepared and well presented food. We feel the presentation of the meals is important to compliment the quality ingredients used. It certainly is a lovely spot to enjoy a meal and a drink and hopefully one day when you are here a dolphin may make an appearance for you!

“Take a trip out of town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

The Clansman is situated in a pretty sleepy riverside setting with the most beautifully kept garden (roses that make you think of an English stately home) making a trip out of Mandurah itself totally worthwhile.
Bob and Maryanne work very hard to ensure the food is fresh and tasty. My fish was delicious and the puddings were beauitiful, innovative and very scrummy!
The premises is big and upstairs is used as a function suite with a hi-tech light up dance floor! This makes the bar and restaurant equally large with plenty of tables.
My favourite table is outside, under the sail shades as the sun sets slowly over the river turning the entire area to orange, gold and red.........wonderful.

Thank you for your lovely review Village Lady! We are glad you enjoyed the sun setting in to the river - it can be quite spectacular depending on the clouds. Our chefs Kevin and Nicole pride themselves on using only the freshest ingredients and the grilled snapper and stuffed snapper are fresh local West Australian fish. We are pleased you enjoyed the garden. We host a lot of weddings and with the river backdrop, the roses help create memorable photos for the bride and groom. We hope to see you again if and when you return to WA.

“Excellent Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

My husband and I visited The Clansman about 6 months ago for a meal and went back there on Friday 22nd Feb. and were not disappointed this time either. We both chose to have the lobster. It came perfectly presented and was absolutely delicious. My husband said he had never seen such big plates. Compliments to the Chef. Bobby and Maryanne were very chatty, friendly and welcoming. Thank you for a lovely evening.
