Looking for a dog friendly pub in Whitehaven a lady walking her dogs directed us to here. (Not local to the area we did manage to get lost but eventually find the Briery) A clean large pub with many people eating (always a good sign) Friendly staff and very accommodating. We arrived very close to the lunch menu finishing but... More

Lovely meal at The Briery, 2nd visit in the last month. New owners have now found their feet and it all seems really established. I had fish cake special with chips and salad was delicious. My friend had her usual sweet and sour chicken. Both really tasty. Pleasant girl behind the bar and young guy serving. Lots of choice on... More

Came here as we remembered how good it was the last time we ate here. Lovely food, very fast service, lovely staff and excellent dessert. We will definitely be returning, just hope we don't leave it as long in between.

Just back from a lovely meal and feeling very full. Cheese pie was gorgeous. Staff very friendly and the service was really fast. Can't wait until my next visit (well maybe wait until I am less full 😄)

The bar staff are very friendly and welcoming, the restaurant serving staff, I feel are under trained but have potential. The food is mainly of a good "Pub Grub" standard, we had sirloin steak which was of reasonably good quality, the trimmings were standard. However the standard of food and the choice in particular has gone down in very recent... More

Good food but the interior hasn't changed in years. I know it's under new management so it might be in the pipeline.

Definitely different with the new owners. The menu is more 'pub grub' and the lovely more 'up market ' dishes have disappeared. A loss. Many of the dishes from The Galloping Horse are now evident, especially their range of curries. There is a wide ranging pub grub menu and the prices are VERY reasonable. Sunday lunch is particularly good value.... More
