It was, okay.. No complaints

Eat here recently for the Sunday Dinner. It wasn't the best I've ever had but certainly not the worst. The staff are pleasant and there is a nice, family atmosphere.

Have llived in the Workington area for over 20years, have only visited this pub on a couple of occasions and the reason for this is that there are lots of other pubs in the area that provide really good food along with real ales. In the last 18months we are now living in the Stainburn area and thought great, walking... More

Visit the Briery regularly with family and never had a bad meal yet. Recently enjoyed the homemade beef burger from the specials board and my partner always has steak with poivre sauce and chips, always plenty of food and excellent value for money. What I like is that everything on their extensive menu is home made and freshly cooked to... More

visited this restaurant a couple of weeks ago with my family. The food was great and given how busy the restaurant was the wait wasn't too long and the young waitresses who served us were attentive and polite. However, the visit was spoiled by the unprofessional staff member working behind the bar. Upon arrival, half the party had already been... More

I eat regularly at the Briery (weekly) and have never been disappointed yet. Delicious home cooked food from bar meals to a la carte, and always value for money with good portions. Staff are friendly, helpful and nothing is too much trouble. I recently visited with family and enjoyed the best homemade Sunday dinner I've had. Keep up the good... More

Has a large menu so something for everyone, but perhaps suggest that not everything is going to be prepared fresh to order. The food we had was decent enough pub grub though, with all steaks cooked perfectly as ordered. Beef stroganoff was tasty, and my wife enjoyed the enormous steak and ale pie. The restaurant and bar as very pleasant,... More
