In 1974 three Dutch brothers began a journey which started Clogs Pizza Castle in Bendigo and was the first free home delivery service in Australia. 1986 saw the Pizza Castle expand and become Bendigo’s first a la carte Restaurant and now with a few aesthetic and concept changes, Clogs is still going strong 45+ years later.
Clogs is still owned and operated by the van Haandel’s and still uses the same dough recipe from the beginning. Most of the original pizzas are even still on the menu. Youngest son Michael has now taken over the operations with his partner Di.
Most recently in 2017 the Clogs building, an iconic Vahland exterior underwent a bold transformation with the exterior being painted a bright energetic mint green to symbolise what Clogs is all about and was shortly followed by a unique and contemporary retro chic interior redesign.
The terrazzo floors, hardwood features and Italian leather banquettes make for a comfortable, fun and slightly Italian feel. Don’t be fooled by the name. Clogs has a diverse yet fun wine list, delicious cocktails and a changing selection of craft beer and cider to compliment a modern Australian/ Italian influenced gastro delight.
Come in and enjoy what we have on offer from 5pm until late every evening.
