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.

We decided to go to the Briery as never been this way for years and always thought it to be a classy place. We had lunch and were not disapointed. The place is roomy and comfortable and service was very pleasant by all staff. The 3 meals we had were no more than £8 a dish and were all served... More

I visited The Briery Workington today for a family lunch and have to say it was excellent. The menu was comprehensive and varied,and it was nice to see that there was a good selection of vegetarian meal choices, as this is not always the case in some places. The service was very good, the staff were friendly, polite and couldn't... More

Plenty food on your plate but prices were still a bit too high for average tasting dishes. Had a good atmosphere as it is quite popular however nothing outstanding about our experience. Managed well having two large groups in at once for a busy evening time.

Having travelled to Cumbria and at the end of a 6 hour trip decided to pay a visit to The Briery a place we have known for many years. Whilst food and service acceptable it was nothing special both in regard to the steak & mushroom pie and the scampi. Service was not fast and bar staff rather surly. Not... More

We arrived at the Briery around 1230 for our lunch. Our table was ready on arrival and drinks served promptly. Excellent choice of meals, I had beef which was lovely so tender. My husband had lamb which he loved also. The creamed cabbage was amazing and portions were big, we were stuffed no tea needed. Briery is my new regular... More

We took our older grandchildren for a meal. The food was good, but the service wasn't. As soon as you put your knife and fork down your plates were whisked away. Our Grandchildren had a sweet which they enjoyed but they had only finished the last mouthfull and put their spoons down when the dishes were whisked away quickly. No... More

I have eaten here several times in the past and always enjoyed the food, however the meal we had on Mother's Day was well below the standard I expected. Duck was overcooked and vegetables hard, and the fish was greasy.
