    Table service was very poor. The staff were very pleasant but we had to keep trying to get their attention. There was nobody checking to make sure we were satisfied or whether we needed anything. That is my only negative thing about the experience.

    Meatballs were lovely. The sauce was just right, had a little kick to it which I like and the wings were fantastic. Boneless and spicy.

    Food and staff lovely but service a bit slow. Food came at different times. The breakfast came first with no toast but person had to start eating it while the second person waited on their toasted sandwich. This may have been just teething problems in new bigger premises. I'll be back to see.

    Fantastic new restaurant. Ballyfermot has been crying out for a place like this. No expense spared on the fit out. Still, it was a massive risk going balls out and going for it. I hope it all works out. I suspect it will, as the effort put in to the whole set up is evident for all who enter. The cleanliness and quality of the family's previous establishment has been maintained as I knew it would. My favourite sandwich has also made the move. I was both impressed and vindicated. I was never in doubt. Best of luck guys.

    Only 2 complaints but everything else was amazing! My boyfriend ordered a steak well done & it was still pink inside but he didn't want to trouble them so he tried to eat most of & it. He also ordered mash & the brought chips but other than that the food was amazing & they're very friendly.

    First time in Lock and Brew the place looks fabulous very inviting..the pizza oven was the centrepiece.It was lunch time and very busy which is a good sign. We were greeted by a very pleasant server and seated straight away .Good lunch menu but could of had a bit more variety so we both got all day regular breakfast which was very tasty. Can't wait to come back and try the evening menu with a few drinks. Great place great atmosphere

    Had an amazing time! Food was absolutely fab! Only thing I wasn’t a fan of was how loud the music was but then again that’s probably showing my age! Overall lovely experience and I’d go back again!
