We opened our doors in March 2019 to provide an inclusive and welcoming community meeting place where delicious locally-sourced food and indie craft brews can be shared with family, friends and colleagues in a safe and friendly space. From day one, our commitment to the well being of our customers and staff has been our priority.
WHAT ARE WE DOING RIGHT NOW?
We believe our community role remains an important one. As long as the best evidence-based guidelines – from federal and state public health agencies – advise us that we are able to remain open, we will do so, and continue to serve you with the same care and attention we always have with your wellbeing and safety front of mind.
We have implemented social distancing measures across our venue – this includes the spacing and layout of tables, as well as the number of patrons in any single area. We have also implemented a range of sanitation features all designed to feel simplistic, safe and not hindering to your dining experience. We have provided special training to all staff to enable the above procedures and to also request patrons that don’t follow these sensible guidelines to leave our premises until they are well.

fare: Sparkke at the Whitmore's Award-Winning Restaurant
As a result of the amazing efforts by our community, we are delighted to announce that fare – Sparkke at the Whitmore’s award-winning restaurant – is open and ready to welcome you.
We'd just like to thank everyone who has supported us over the last few months; we’re extremely humbled that so many of you have enjoyed our food in the comfort of your home. If you love our Sparkke to You menu, you’re in luck, as we will continue to bring the pub to you with our exclusive takeaway menu and bottle shop range.
fare is open for lunch and dinner from Wednesday to Sunday. We have curated a Chef's Choice Feed Me menu at $75PP and a full a la carte menu.
Our pub menu is available from 11-9pm daily Wednesday to Sunday and will be updating weekly, so look out for new additions.
We have 2 sittings available for both lunch and dinner: early and late. Your table will be booked for a maximum of 1.5 hours to facilitate complete sanitation of the area before the next sitting.
While we are limited with people eating at the Whitmore, we have designed a custom Takeaway menu that brings all the beauty and heart of the Whitmore right to your doorstep. Check out our full menu below!
Feeling more like staying in than going out? We’re ramping up our inhouse bottle shop to allow you to swing by and collect any of your Sparkke at the Whitmore favourite brews in package; 375 ml cans or 1.9 L growlers pulled straight off of the tap. Or maybe you’re looking for a bottle of one of our special gin collaborations with Australia’s top distillers? We also have some amazing wines stocked with a tight, considered collection. In any case, we’re open and ready to serve you.
Opening Hours: 11am - 9pm daily
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
We see our venue as a community partnership. We do need you to do your bit. We really can’t do it without you.
If you aren’t in Adelaide, support us with online sales and social messages (they really do help keep us going).
If you’re visiting us at the pub, we have designed the space to enable social distancing and sanitation practices, keeping our venue virus-free! Initiatives meant to protect your well-being. That said, if you aren’t well, please wait and return at a time when we can welcome you back fully recovered.
For the sake of our mammas and grandmamas, as well as your own, please keep fevers, coughs, aches and pains socially isolated, and don’t wait and wonder – GET TESTED!
Stay connected. We’re here with you.
MORE ABOUT THE STEPS WE'RE TAKING:
We are proceeding according to best practice advice from the Australian and South Australian governments - as well as state and national health services.
We’ve implemented social distancing guidelines at our tables across our venue
We check all staff temperatures at the beginning of each shift (with their permission of course!)
We’re ensuring that we follow government regulations, capping each area of the venue at capacity of 1 person every 2 square metres (from June 29)
We disinfect every smooth surface, including door handles, banisters, tables, shelving etc every hour, and of course as always, we wipe every table after every customer finishes a meal or a drink. This is all done with single-use towelling.
We disinfect the keypad after transactions where you’re required to enter your pin.
We have set up hand sanitising units across the pub – so you can sanitise your hands as you arrive and depart too (of course in the loo too!)
We’ve removed cutlery caddies from the casual dining areas in the pub and returned to providing serviette wrapped cutlery.
As always, all of our glassware, cutlery, and tableware are cleaned with high-grade commercial cleaners that sterilise as part of the cleaning process.
Every single staff member has been fully trained to adhere to our guidelines and to focus on your well-being, as well as their own.
We have provided special training to staff to enable them to request patrons that don’t follow our guidelines to leave our premises until they are well.
