    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.

    We had wings to start with bbq but the sauce was very mild and the burgers 🍔 were delicious definitely would come again and we had a lovely cheesecake the only thing we thought was a little pricey for a burger

    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!

    Order 4 breakfasts waited over 35 mins for them to arrive. 2 fries arrived out together followed, followed 3 mins later by a fried egg and toast followed 5 or 6 mins later by pancakes. The fried egg on toast was cold and the pancakes were under cooked. Service was poor waiting g over 10 mins for a pot of tea. Don't recommend on any level very disappointed

    The service was extremely slow, we were left waiting for 45 minutes for our food which was just avocado toast & toast and rashers. Our food was not served at the same time, we received our meals about 10 minutes apart. My Mam had to go up to the staff and ask for her food again which then came straight away. The restaurant was not particularly busy at the time. Parts of both of our meals were forgotten about. The options weren’t good at all for alternative dietary requirements. They removed the bacon from my food but I was still charged the same amount had I had it with the bacon. €9.95 for two tiny slices of toast with avocado. Was really looking forward to trying this place after seeing good reviews but left feeling so disappointed!

    Lovely place wish the people all the best in there new venture :) sadly they had no liquor licence in place so we couldn't get the cocktails advertised on the menu only wine or beer. Hopefully next time we try it they will have secured one. the food was great apart from the croutons in the teaser salad were rock hard id have needed a steak knife to cut them and all the lettuce were stalks instead of leafs but the company I was with were happy with there pizzas, vegan dish and said the fries were amazing :) for the amount of staff on the premises not one person came to our table to ask if we need anything else without having to wave at one of them.
