The team behind The Lockhart have turned their hand to serving cocktails & barbecue on Kingly Street.

Leading the culinary direction is Mississippi-born chef Brad McDonald, bringing his authentic approach to barbecue alongside a cocktail lounge.

He’ll be cooking a traditional ‘low and slow’ barbecue drawing on classic Southern flavours, and treating diners to authentic, seasonal specialties using the very best quality British meat and produce, all smoked on Shotgun’s wood-burning smoker using English and European hardwoods.
