We now eat here at least once per month as for an evening meal locally it's reliable in terms of food, value and customer service. We were sorry though to hear that the absolutely wonderful Italian waiter has left. He was awesome. However, all of the staff look after you well and the meal always seems good value.

Live locally in the area and The Briery is a great place for catching up with other locals but that is about it. The food is over-rated.....Risotto is made with long-grain rice!!! The 'Specials Board' doesn't seem to change from week to week!!! I would go so far to say the saving grace for this place is the fantastic bar... More

This is our local and we are regular customers. Staff are always friendly and accommodating and food is always good with generous portions. Can't beat it. We went for Father's Day meal yesterday evening and all six of us thoroughly enjoyed it.

Visited for a family meal, and we were overwhelmed by the fantastic staff. All of the staff were polite and kind, food was good, however one thing completely ruined my evening. The manager. The manager was incredibly rude and treated her staff like trash, even after doing an excellent job, I could overhear her insulting them over and over and... More

We used to eat here regularly 10 years ago, then we will fell out of favour with it. There isn't much choice in Workington, so we decided to give it another go recently one evening for an early evening meal. The menu hasn't changed much in 10 years. There is plenty of choice, but little to tempt me away from... More

Decided to eat here with family last Saturday lunch time..Got there about 12.15pm and It was reasonably full, but still had a few tables. We decided to sit in bar area after noticing a group celebrating a... More

A great place for families, couples, or friends, with a good hearty meal thrown in, very good value for money, service was very good & nothing too much trouble for the staff. can thouroughly recommend, for a great inexpensive feast, 5 star steak & mushroom pie, with tasty gravy, what a treat, well worth visiting.
