Superb steak meal

We found this 'pub' by chance whilst staying in Lambton. What a find. The staff were extremely friendly and that reflected in the overall feel to the establishment. You can hardly avoid the TVs showing sport and there is music playing but not too loudly. The meal was very good especially the... read more

The vibe is great and décor suits the theme. My husband chose one of the specials and I can only say it must have been because the meat was on special, nothing else - awful steak. I am vegetarian so always hard to get something different but they went out of their way to please and mine was great so... More

I've been to a number of cafes in Newcastle and this one was chosen based on location for a brunch with friends. This cafe had a number of positive comments on Tripadvisor, so I was eager to try out this place. The staff were attentive and nice. Decor and ambience was trendy, which drew in a younger crowd (teens to... More

With a very beautifully styled interior, The Locale is a very lovey place for Breakfast and Lunch. I had the Mexican breakfast which featured corn fritters which was nice although I found that it didn't contain much corn and was more batter and was in a ball, not a flat fritter. As this meal does not come with toast, the... More

I am not into the industrial look restaurants but when we visited it was a nice surprise. My salad was yummo and I had the best lemon lime and bitters I have ever had. Service was nice and friendly.

This place was busy as, but in saying that we where seated quickly with prompt service. The food was good and the ice coffee was not what I was expecting but was a pleasant twist to the norm, at least it gave me the option of just how much milk I want as they give you the milk in a... More

We tend to visit once a week for breakfast after dropping the kids to school. The staff are always friendly and the food is very nice. Actual delivery of food and beverages can sometimes take a while but I think that this is simply due to their popularity.

What a quirky little place to eat the most delicious breakfast. Best coffee you can imagine and food to absolutely "die for" ...

Friendly helpful staff, efficient service and good food at a reasonable price in a slightly funky place. Has a small parking area which can be handy when just wanting to drop in for a coffee which is of excellent quality. Very child friendly as we had a 20 month old with us who was well looked after by the staff.
