Cheap Eats at Brisbane’s Best Gastro-Pub? Yes Please!

It may feel 32 degrees outside and muggy as all hell, but it really is autumn guys, we promise. The only real way we residents of this sub-tropical city can tell there’s been a change of seasons is noticing all the best restaurants in Brisbane have gone and switched up their menus.

One spot that always keeps us fed, watered, and keen for more is West End watering hole, Lock‘n’Load.

Perhaps it’s because this iconic West End restaurant and bar has been around for almost a decade and still manages to be one of the coolest joints in town. Maybe it’s the fact that Lock‘n’Load has championed the whole ‘gastro-pub’ movement from way back, and is known for doing a killer seasonal menu. Or the infamous towers or beer and cider might have sealed the deal…

Whatever it is, Lock‘n’Load has certainly figured out what we locals like.

Always staying on top of seasonal change, Lock ‘n’ Load has already whipped up a stellar autumn menu, ready for the cooler days (which will be here any day now, we’re sure of it). Breakfast, lunch, and dinner have all had a little facelift, and are choc full of autumn-y produce, like the marinated slow braised brisket, and the roasted pumpkin, beetroot and lentil salad, plus the killer Pastrami Rueben sandwich (a genius twist on the traditional and a must-try!)…We could go on.

Sound good? Get 20% off your bill!

To celebrate the launch of their new menu, Lock’n’Load is offering Urban List readers 20% off your next bill throughout April. Simply make a reservation for breakfast or lunch via their Facebook page or website, making sure you add ‘URBANLISTED 20% OFF’ in the comments section of your booking, and they’ll take 20% off your total*. Pretty sweet

*Offer runs April 1-31 2015 and valid for breakfast and lunch service only.
