Homemade pizza great . Good value for money and plenty of tables kids welcome . Large bar if you prefer to go for a drink before your meal . I think they sell snacks also at the bar.

We popped in for a cocktail about 10.30pm , place was quite empty but good for a nightcap . Very ornate building ,but seems a to lack a little atmosphere when is so empty due to the size of the bar area . Will go back again

We probably would not have discovered Brendans but for the fact that it is attached to our hotel, so we are thankful for that. This is the perfect spot for a drink and a light - but very good meal. The place has genuine atmosphere! It's miles from an ultra modern bar with shiny features and uncomfortable seating, The decor... More

Have used Brendans over the years and it never disappoints. Great for a relaxed meal and usually pretty quiet. Service is always great, and they cater really well for large parties too.
