Seasonality is at the heart of what Martin and Kelly – the creative and dynamic duo behind Needle in a Haystack – do. They look at what local farms are growing and design a menu around that – because food tastes better when it is fresh and naturally grown. Just of their dishes will get your foodie heart racing….try their beer and thyme braised beef, roasted garlic and potato puree, watercress, wasabi kale and beef and beer reduction.
