We were only at restaurant. It has nice location and lovely food. We ate fish which was really good. Sat outside but when inside to see it - looks like pub. Prices are normal and affordable. All in all - try and you will not feel sorry!

Poor selection of food on the menu. What we did order was ok, though we waited longer than expected to be served. Didn't find the staff to be particularly welcoming and even though the place was empty when we were there we felt quite rushed.

Saturday afternoon only one place to go. The beer menu is literally endless and here is a new Irish beer dowds lane a cider on draft stunning. A few scoops with waitress service so you don't miss the football or rugby. Recommend the hot pepperoni pizza to help wash it down. Plenty of other local beers from porter house themselves... More

Bray as a whole is a great place to be, this establishment on the other hand was terrible, I had an awful night, I found the staff obnoxious, rude and quite frankly horrible. My friends and I will certainly will not be returning.

From appetizers (chicken wings and scampi) to main meals (rack of ribs, roast beef) and drinks (After Eight), this was a delicious evening out! Outside seating with heating lamps nearby was the perfect ending to a day at the beach.

Ok, it isn't the best cleaned pub, but you can find the best fish soup and fish in general, and drink a beer just in front the beach and the ocean! Inside you can stay more comfortable watching some sport event.
