THE TIME HAS COME – SCOUT’S PUB OPENS FOR SOFT LAUNCH TOMORROW!

Scout's Pub- Food-44 (1)

It’s finally here! Tomorrow, June 22 through June 26, we’ll open the doors to the newest member in our family of restaurants, Scout’s Pub, for a “soft launch” in the Westhaven community of Franklin. We’ll serve burgers, brews and other items from our well-rounded menu as we gear up for our public grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony on Monday, June 27, at 1:30 p.m. 

Our proprietor, Andy Marshall, envisioned an upscale, modern pub with a neighborly vibe, and has produced a unique restaurant and hospitable experience for both neighborhood locals and visitors to enjoy.

“We are serving tight-knit neighborhoods that place value on shared experiences with friends and family, and I think they’ll see our commitment to that, too, through the restaurant’s mission and what we bring to the table at Scout’s Pub,” Andy said. 

Scout’s Pub takes its name from Andy’s beloved family dog, and it promises to be a sought-after gathering spot for the many neighborhoods in the vicinity. We were excited to have the casual atmosphere and eclectic interior design styled by Kim Leggett of local antique shop, City Farmhouse, and our 1,250-square-foot patio, and fun, fresh menu are each part of creating a great destination to watch the big game, meet for lunch or happy hour, or dine as a family.

Menu highlights include confit duck wings (served traditional hot or Asian and pictured above), fish and chips, house-ground burgers, Irish bratwurst with colcannon mash, fresh salads, scratch made pizzas and a number of sides and shareables. Are you hungry yet?!

“Both European gastropubs and Southern culture gravitate toward hearty cuisine made with seasonal ingredients, and that’s what we want to do here,” said Keith West, head chef at Scout’s Pub. “Our menu offers a good mix of basics and traditional favorites, while also adding a modern flair that’s unexpected.”

We’re also offering an extensive list of carefully made cocktails, wine and craft beer, including local options from Blackstone Brewery, Mantra Artisan Ales, Little Harpeth Brewing Co. and more.

Scout’s Pub will be open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. In addition, we’ll serve brunch each Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m. through 2 p.m., with drink specials and an array of breakfast favorites.

The public is invited to drop in during the soft launch, or add themselves to the wait-list through the NoWait app, available on smart phones.

NEW “PUCKETT’S BREW” IS STRAIGHT OUTTA NASHVILLE!

Puckett's Brew

Our restaurants have a new beer offering on their menus, and in true Puckett’s fashion, it is produced locally at Nashville’s oldest craft brewery, Blackstone Brewing Company. Their Helles style Lager is the new “Puckett’s Brew” and is now being served in all Puckett’s restaurants, including Puckett’s Boat House!

Why’d we choose Blackstone, you ask? Well, several Blackstone beers have long been staples on Puckett’s menus, and their continual popularity inspired us to pursue a partnership that would spotlight a Blackstone Brewing Company product as the crowd favorite “Puckett’s Brew.”

The creation of the lager is an art, and it requires a minimum of 30 days to perfect through a production cycle that takes place in Blackstone’s brewing system from Germany, made especially to brew German-style lagers.

We toured the brewery and chatted with Thomas Solinsky, director of sales and marketing for Blackstone, about the careful planning and quality control that goes into the crafting of the beer.

“Throughout the process, we strive for the highest quality possible when crafting our beers,” Solinsky told us. “If the brew cycle is finished and we are not satisfied with the final product, we will hold back on selling it and start over.”

Light, with low bitterness and a crisp and pleasant malty flavor, Solinksy said his team settled on this recipe because it is well balanced and doesn’t have too strong of a flavor. This beer will pair well with just about anything on the menu, which makes it an easy sell when eating BBQ and fried chicken at Puckett’s!

Located just west of downtown Nashville at 2312 Clifton Ave., Blackstone Brewery has recently added a tasting room and will soon allow visitors to enjoy outdoor tastings in a beer garden. Situated on 3.5 acres of land, it boasts 130 fruit trees and various vegetable plants, and produces its own honey on-site.

Swing by and grab a mason jar of the Puckett’s Brew; you won’t be disappointed!

We are excited to welcome Chris Payne to the A. Marshall Family Foods Inc. family as the general manager of Scout’s Pub!

Chris recently relocated from Atlanta where he opened over 70 restaurants, ranging from steakhouses and fast-casual concepts to bars. Since joining the Scout’s Pub team, Payne has spent time in each of the A.

Also joining the Scout’s team is our long-time brand chef, Keith West, who will serve as head chef at the new restaurant, and Brad Lentz and Lee Rice, who will make the shift to Westhaven from Franklin’s Puckett’s Gro. We’re thrilled to have them on board, too!

Scout’s Pub is scheduled to open its doors this summer in Westhaven, and is looking for more talented people like Chris, Brad and Lee to join the team! If you or someone you know is interested, please stop by Scout’s Pub on May 24, 25, and 26 from 10 AM – 2 PM and 4 PM – 7 PM to meet Chris. Bring your resume and a photo I.D.!
