MATES Ian Fletcher and Scott Simp­son have come a long way since sell­ing fish and chips at fes­ti­vals around Perth.

The duo will start serv­ing burg­ers made from WA pro­duce and lo­cal beers at their new ven­ture Green­horns, which is part of the of­fer­ings at the new Raine Square din­ing precinct.

“We worked to­gether at a restau­rant and used to go to all the fes­ti­vals,” Fletcher, the chef, said.

“We were fed up with pay­ing $15 for food and it not be­ing good, so we de­cided to do it well with WA pro­duce.”

Fletcher is English and Simp­son Scot­tish, so they started as a fish and chip stall and adapted to of­fer Cal­i­for­nian-style food.

They moved on from the food stalls to launch Green­horns Deli in the Rio Tinto build­ing and have part­nered with Feral Brew­ing Com­pany to serve lo­cal beer with burg­ers and bites at Raine Square.

“We’ve got food that pairs with beers and we’ve got lots of ve­gan and gluten­free op­tions,” Fletcher, of Joon­danna, said.

“I used to come here (to Raine Square) be­fore and when we heard it was be­ing re­de­vel­oped we looked into it.

“It’s a great lo­ca­tion with the sta­dium, Perth Arena and Ya­gan Square nearby and the cin­ema up­stairs.”
