One of Newcastle Harbour’s most iconic and loved seafood restaurants, Scratchleys on the Wharf offers sunsets, cocktails and stunning water views. Overlooking the busy port towards Nobby’s Lighthouse, this restaurant and new addition Battlesticks Bar, delight discerning diners with sunlight sparkling off the water, seen through floor-to-ceiling glass doors. Private dining rooms are available for events, while a takeaway out front meets the needs of those looking to picnic on the foreshore. Dine in to start with Scratchleys chowder packed full of fish, prawns, mussels, squid, octopus, potato and corn; before a house specialty char-grilled seafood antipasto plate, drizzled with basil and almond pesto. Carnivores may opt for pork belly roulade with fennel and thyme, served on celeriac puree.
A few words from Scratchleys On The Wharf
Scratchleys On the Wharf overlooks the beautiful port of Newcastle Harbour in New South Wales. It's a great place to sit, relax and watch the ships go by while sipping on a glass of red wine. Make sure you book in advance and get a window seat because this view is not something you'll want to miss.
From the tastiest range of succulent seafood and sizzling steaks on the menu through to the extensive range of fine wines from the Hunter Valley, Scratchleys On the Wharf will delight your taste buds. Look over the water towards Nobby's Lighthouse with the sunlight sparkling off the magnificent water while enjoying your meal or have a quick takeaway and stroll along the Newcastle footpath. The menu is selected by the Hunter Valley's premier chefs, including seasonal specialties and daily specials.
Scratchley's is well known for its tantalising menu of succulent seafood but if you're not into fish dishes, worry not - there are a host of meat, chicken and vegetarian options as well as a long toothsome dessert menu. The hot and cold seafood platter deserves a mention here as a popular favourite. A mixture of famous Port Stephens Oysters, sweet King Prawns, Blue Swimmer Crabs and succulent Balmain Bugs make this a mouth-watering treat.
The restaurant is decidedly relaxed and has a friendly, homey atmosphere. The tables are left bare and clean white linen line the tops. Seating is open and airy, in harmony with the harbour. It's a place where people get together to cool off and have a laugh. Together with the view and food, what could possibly go wrong?
If you're having a function, either a wedding reception, cocktail party, birthday party or really, any kind of get-together, Scratchley's can cater for groups of anywhere from 30 to 70 people in style and elegance. Rest assured your special event will be remembered by all your guests and that the staff are known to pay special attention to detail and can be trusted to take care of the arrangements.
