Great ambience. Reasonable selection of wine and beer but expensive. Food menu well below par. Pricey for the product. Furniture is a bit clumsy. Small tables with awkward legs that are easy to kick, slippery chairs. covid sign-in is manual and should be digital. Not a genuine dinner destination rather a nice little bar that shouldn't try to be anything more. Would recommend to friends for a drink.

We are a wine bar, not a restaurant. Menu is fair with 25 dishes to choose from.... Our "3 glass wine list" offers 300 wines to match everyone's budget (bottles from $55). Pricing is based on the produce we use, we don't believe in low quality products. You were seated at a beautiful inside table with bentwood chairs- the tables are so steady we need two people to shuffle them due to the concrete tops. If hard to please it's always good to check out online menus before a visit. Thanks, Steph

Nice evening but pretty noisy and crowded, we found it a bit hard to chat properly. Cheese board was great, as were the wines.

Responded on 6 August 2020

Hi Ayla, thanks for the review. We are currently operating under stage 3 restrictions with social distancing and capped numbers in place which means we are only allowed 50 guests spread out over our 120sqm... We were "full" considering circumstances, but def not crowded. May we suggest you avoid Saturdays at 7pm when wanting a quiet table visiting a bar... Thanks :)

Small with a bang! We went to the Local Larder on a Sunday evening. We were their last table and kinda felt we should rush a little. Instead, the staff members were very welcoming and friendly. We had a chat at the end of our meal and felt very good and natural. Beautiful spot with beautiful cheeses and wine.. plus.. beautiful people

This was our first visit to The Local Larder and now we wonder why we left it so long! We sat inside with our friends and were warm and able to speak with each other without any problems (music and general noise level was low). Our waitress was wonderfully helpful and friendly, food was above expectations (especially the shaved truffle on the funghi pizza), and wine was terrific.

Service was excellent. Food was nice although the pizza could have been a bit crispier. Good value for money and although they were very nice and welcoming to our kids the food is not kid friendly. Also the tables are tiny not much room for sharing plates.

Responded on 29 July 2020

Thanks for the review... Our menu is designed to be shared (even with the little ones)... Pizza and polenta chips or cheese & crackers have proven popular with our little patrons... I spoke to the staff and unfortunately you didn't mention any requests during your visit. We pride ourselves in making anything happen for our guests... Being parents ourselves we can always whip something up for the kiddies or have your pizza cooked more with no problems... You simply just have to let us know...

Food selection consists mainly of share platters so is a great place to meet friends over a nice wine and great food. Can get busy so book ahead.

If you're interested in tasting boutique wines from around the world, this is THE place to go. James has an incredible knowledge of an amazing number of regions. Steph provides fantastic food, suitable for all dietary requirements (except weight loss :D ). Highly recommend it especially for special occassions. Afternoons are best for low noise levels.

Hi ANONYMOUS... Thank you for your review. From your visit date I can see that you joined us on a Friday night (which is our busiest night by far), maybe try us on a Saturday for a more relaxed and less noisy period. The inside chairs might also be more suitable for you instead... Simply mention this when you make your next booking... We have many guests here that stay from start to finish of service enjoying themselves, sad to hear that you weren't comfortable enough. Hope to see you back soon!

Entering The Local Larder & Wine Bar is like visiting your very knowledgeable, hospitable, long time friends. The owners know how to treat their customers and are available to chat when the time comes, but also give patrons the space to enjoy- this is thanks to their experience and attentiveness. We tried a few glasses of various reds on the new menu, and went for 5 cheeses between two of us. Music is ambient and the venue cosy. The perfect place to escape the cold this winter!
