About Swell Bistro

Established in June 2022 by Chef Jordan, Swell Bistro gives a fresh, contemporary touch to traditional bistro dining. Sourcing unique, fresh ingredients is the secret behind the delicious food created in our seaside kitchen. Chef Jordan creates all her own sauces, batters her barramundi and squid, and forms her meat patties for that succulent burger.

My partner and I attended your Melbourne Cup function this year and were blown away by the standard of food and service.

After many years of chemotherapy, my partner now has to ensure a specialised diet, your wonderful chef and hospitality staff went over and above to make sure she received the right meal, even though they were quiet busy, explained what ingredients made up each serving. 

What can sometimes be a stressful outing for people on special diets, was turned into a truly enjoyable day. Your kitchen and hospitality staff made it that way, not forgetting the rest of the staff there that served us with a cheerful smile all day. 

We have had a few enjoyable Melbourne Cup days at the Club and that one was the best!

Such a classic country club, old school, wonderful service and great food. I played here with my band a few weeks ago and the place was rocking. It is the go to place in Scott’s for food, drinks and entertainment.

We had some young families head to the club from the caravan park for a bowls and live entertainment afternoon. The kids loved the outdoor area and the adults loved club priced drinks. We had dinner there after the music stopped and the meals were huge and great quality. Value for money and a fun venue. A lot of improvements and changes lately has made Club Scotts an icon in beautiful Scotts Head.
