We had a family celebration for my sisters birthday at the weekend & had a fantastic time in the porterhouse! The staff are so helpful & friendly despite the fact they were mad busy & dealing with huge crowds. The food is gorgeous & the atmosphere is electric! Looking forward to our next trip already!!

Big fan of this place, love the interior and a great spot for a night out in Bray. Decent pub grub and a good range of their own beers. Perfect for a sunny day in the beer garden looking out over the strand and up to Bray head.

Guinness, Average lagers and an awful drink called Smethwick’s. Just think dish water for the last one......anyway this place blew that away BUT ever since it expanded its lost...
