Best seasonal ingredients brought to your plate

On top of our regular menu items, we bring you seasonal specials which reflect daily changes – the weather, breeding seasons, growing seasons and harvests all impact our kitchen every day, presenting our chefs with challenges and opportunities! For Scarecrow, great food isn’t just about the ingredients; it’s about where it comes from, who makes it, how it makes it way to the plate, and finally, how it’s enjoyed.

Scarecrow stewards this process every step of the way. The food is ethically sourced and prepared by a detail-orientated team that strives to ensure every plate reflected the skill and energy gone into making memorable meals. Come enjoy a quick  meal before or linger over a meal paired with drinks from our carefully considered cellar. Tables and spaces available to suit quiet catch-ups or livelier engagements.

Scarecrow’s produce is organic, seasonal and hand-picked by local farmers and artisans.
