Been to the Briary twice since we moved into our new home, within less than two weeks. The first meal was lamb and I must say it was absolutely delicious. We returned this evening and my husband ordered the mixed grill. Enough food to feed a small family but he thoroughly enjoyed it. He then ordered sticky toffee pudding which... More

We eat out a lot and tried this place when with family as we'd tried many of the local places, and a couple on our 'to do' list were full. This restaurant stands up well to many we have visited when fancying some decent pub grub. Good full portions, hot and good mains, with superb chips, attentive service and good... More

We visited on Friday and had the cannelloni and the chicken and leak pie. Both were very tasty. We couldn't eat it all as the portions were enormous. The bread rolls were home made, as was the main course. The staff were very friendly and the prices reasonable. The next time we are in Workington, we'll go again.

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.
