You know the old saying, when on holiday go where the locals go, well McBrides is that place.Set right on the Square in the heart of Comber, McBrides is truly a flagship for community pubs. Locals from all generations choose McBrides for the warm friendly atmosphere & the choice and quality of our food & drink, it also helps that our pints of Guinness are legendary.
