Showcasing the diversity of the wonderful local region Harvest Newrybar creates fabulous fresh food sourced from local artisan producers and the restaurants own gardens.

 

The restaurants chefs have teamed up with forager and wild food researcher, Peter Hardwick, to create a menu full of local curiosities. Each Wednesday, we present a selection of ideas and flavours on a plate after a day of foraging and developing (including pickling and fermenting) at the Wild Harvest Sessions for guests to experience and provide feedback.
