I booked here for Valentines evening as a surprise for my girlfriend. To be honest she was not impressed that i chose here as she classes it as a cafe and farm store. However, her attitude has changed since. The menu for Valentines evening was outstanding, Lamb, sirloin ( with no surcharge!!), hake, the menu had something for everyone. and... More

Have been to Bramley on a number of occassions, but this time the service was very slow and the food not as good as it used to be. 4 different waiters/waitress served us and they kept walking past without looking to see if we needed anything, it took a long time between having our main course plates cleared and for...

Have visited here on a few occasions with my family and always left satisfied but recently have been left disappointed. On the lunch service the food has become tastless and bland in particular the steak sandwich on which I felt the bread served was stale and the steak was not the best .Will be rethinking about coming here again

I had been driving past this place for quite a while and when I finally got around to eating there I was not disappointed. The food was far higher quality than I was expecting (I was expecting good from reputation, but it really was excellent). The quality of the ingredients was superb, I could pull my steak apart without cutting... More

Bramley serves a great breakfast. The omelette in particular is really tasty and filling with toasted or fresh home made soda bread. The coffee is great too. Very friendly and helpful staff and nice atmosphere, especially in the conservatory. Lunch is good too, haven't tried dinner yet. Prices are reasonable for the quality of the food.

2 of the small selection of mains were unavailable, and I didn't fancy the rest so had to get a starter as a main. Granted the goats cheese starter was lovely, as was the leg of lamb that my husband had, the vegetables were amazing! Good, efficient service.

Just wanted to say that we returned here after a few months after we had a bad service experience with a male server on 2 separate occasions. However the place definitely seems to be back on track. Service was great and it's definitely the most delicious breakfast in Cork! Special mention to the lovely waitress Karen who is so enthusiastic,... More

Had Sunday lunch there today. Food was excellent, but had to order extra potato with the lamb as the potato portion was quite small. That said, all 3 courses were delicious. Was really surprised that none of the waiting staff enquired as to how ANY part of our meal was.!! Not sure even if there was any one particular member... More

We made a reservation to dine here on Saturday evening 31st of January. It was recommended to us. Bramley lodge did not disappoint. On the evening they were rather busy, but the staff of about 4 were well organised and coped very well. Our order was taken and questions about the culinary options were answered. The food arrived at our... More
