Just wanted to thank you and your amazingly awesome team for the fab party I had! It was such a great night, and so awesome that we were able to play our own music (ahah sorry if we played it too loud, I swear that was all my mum!!) I hope we weren't too much a nuisance! Also thank you for the wristbands, we had the best boogie at Woolly afterwards. I will definitely recommend your place to anyone looking to have a great time at a beautiful venue with amazing staff! Hope to catch you around Lock'n'Load sometime soon! :) Kind regards, Helena

There was nothing we could complain about our dinner here last night! Not even something we could 'mmm and ahhh, maybe' about it. I made the booking half an hour before we got there, and they were very accommodating. Mea was as graceful a hostess as she is beautiful, and her recommendations were nothing short of perfection. The venue itself is also gorgeous, beautiful mismatched reclaimed wood open veneer at the entrance, and all timber interior with funk phresh, inventive decorating. Ladders, chairs and wooden scissors adorn the wall and compliment the overall warm and inviting feeling of the entire establishment. The meat-eating guests ate the Chef's special Pork Belly Appetiser which they said was absolutely delightful, while I had some of the polenta and mushrooms with herbs that was easily the best polenta dish I've ever eaten. It was silky smooth and perfectly balanced with butter and garlic without being overpowering (...) Super stoked to have this place as my 100th Review. Thanks guys!!!

Really scrumptious breakfast menu. Clean nice atmosphere cool music friendly staff. The apple and ginger juce is refreshing. The expresso was strong just how I like it.

Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and the rest of the team for my 30th birthday party function on 13 December. Everything was great, the food was delicious (the Arancini balls and pork sliders especially, oh my god, so good!), and the service was exceptional. Thanks to Mea and Nicola for being so friendly, warm and making sure everything ran smoothly. I think my guests had a great time and everyone commented how tasty the food was. Would definitely recommend Lock'n'Load for functions.

Mmmm thoroughly enjoyed the house smoked salmon with hash cakes and poached eggs. Dined at busy 12pm lunch time and the single male waiter did the best he could on his own. Did take a while for food to arrive. They were accomodating with my DF request and my meal was delicious! Would go back.
