    Lovely staff and lovely food. Even though we arrived a few minutes late we still felt so welcome and all of the staff are so friendly. The restaurant itself is gorgeous and the food and cocktails are amazing and very reasonably priced. Portions are huge too and everything is cooked to perfection. If we could give more than 5 stars we would! We’ll definitely be back! :)

    Would highly recommend lock & brew. We came here last night for my dad's birthday and the staff couldn't do enough for us. The place had a great atmosphere, the staff were really down to earth and the food and drink was delicious. For starters i got the meatballs with garlic alioli and sourdough bread and it was so tasty. For main I got the chicken Alfredo with chips and a side of those magnificent crispy onion strings, every member of our party tried my dish and said it was so delicious that they would order it on our next visit. Also most of our party got the huge Lock & brew burger and they all devoured it. And then we come to dessert. If you have a sweet tooth, you can't go wrong with their gorgeous hot cookie dough skillet with Nutella and icecream. It was my favourite dish of the night. We had an amazing night here with our family and we will definitely be returning xxx

    Garlic bread just tasted burnt and I wasn’t a fan of the sauce on the chicken burger, other than that the boneless wings were very nice and the chips were well seasoned and we had good service too, not a bad spot just wouldn’t recommend the garlic bread. Was not worth the price but maybe something different would be.
