We are closed on Sundays and Mondays.
We run Wine Masterclasses and these are by appointment only and start from 6pm and run until 9pm.
We also run Wine Tastings in our shop from 4pm to 5pm every Saturday.
About the Owners
Stephanie and James have over 40 years Hospitality experience between them and have a love of food, wine and travel.
Travelling throughout Europe, Australia and NZ every year, they draw inspiration from wine bars around the World, none more notably than in Paris and Barcelona.
You will get a sense of this ‘European’ bar feel as you enter the Local Larder. The interiors of the space are darker, more rustic, but also very welcoming.
James, a well regarded wine professional, is constantly reworking the wine list and wine shop range.
Steph’s knowledge for cheese and European delicacies are also on display along with many more substantial food offerings, that pair perfectly with the 30 plus wines offered by the glass.
The staff at the Larder are a highlight of your experience. Always joyful, passionate with some of the best service skills you will find in QLD.
What we offer :
Tuesday through to Saturday, the ‘Larder’ (as it is affectionately known by the locals), opens from 3pm to 10pm and on Friday and Saturday opens from 12pm to 11pm. The menu offers a range of of European share plates and some of the World’s best cheeses!
The wine list, a joy to consume, is full of wines you may have never seen before, carefully sourced from around the world with a focus on local wineries too.
All of the wines selected for our wine shop are painstakingly tasted and assessed before being ranged. All of the wines selected for the wine list are what we think to be the best of these wines, based on variety, style, drinkability, price & importantly for our food options.
