Located within the Shoalhaven region on the NSW South Coast, The Growers, a new 450-seat indoor-outdoor casual eatery and bar has open.
In October 2020, American born Chef, Patrick Haney joined The Growers on the NSW South Coast. He was drawn to the venue’s farm to plate ethos, which focuses on showcasing the region’s diverse agricultural producers. Patrick’s menu at The Growers centres around sustainable and simple ingredients, creating wholesome dishes to be shared with family and friends.
A selection of shared dishes including; Oysters from Greenwell Point and Batemans Bay; squid and whitebait fritto; and wood-fired pizzas. More substantial items include house-pasta made with local vegetables; and roast chicken with kale polenta and mushrooms. Patrick will also work closely with local producers Pines, Eden Smokehouse and Milton Beef, among many others.
Highlighting the regional beverage producers, the drinks list will include Jervis Bay Brewing Co, BentSpoke Canberra, spirits hailing from Distillery Botanica in Erina NSW, and a curated wine list that showcases boutique and local wineries.
Created by Tully Heard Consulting (the team behind the acre Eateries, The Greens, The Fernery, Taffy’s and Alala’s), The Growers will feature multiple dining areas and enclosed events spaces. There is an expansive outdoor garden area that includes seating under planted pergolas, a fire pit, kid’s play areas, and kiosk which will offer a limited weekend menu that focuses on barbeque style dishes such as; slow-cooked pulled pork seasoned with The Growers spice rub made from the venue’s kitchen garden.
The expansive space by Pony Design Co is inviting and warm, using a combination of natural timber finishings, greenery, eclectic furniture and textured stones, with plenty of space for social distancing.
Patrick said: “The NSW South Coast is a region rich with produce and history and The Growers will continue to tell these stories, cementing its place as a leading food, beverage and event destination. As we head into the school and festive holidays, The Growers is the perfect pit stop for lunch if you are passing through, or an ideal location for those in the Shoalhaven region over summer”.
The Growers is two and a half hours from Sydney and Canberra and offers both the local community and holidaymakers a place to gather, celebrate, and re-discover the beauty of the NSW South Coast.
