It says so on the wall, and little has changed since then. Limited selection of food, mostly fried. Tried scampi thinking it might be good 50m from the water but it was frozen. Fried chicken for the kids was ok. Won't be going back though!

Had a very pleasant time while having a lunch here, the food is lovely but there simply isn't enough vegetarian options ( only 1 to be exact at the time of our visit).
There is a great atmosphere and staff are very helpful.

I was one of 14 welsh women who came over for the Ireland/Wales rugby weekend and visited this Bar on Friday and Saturday and although we didnt eat here, the look and smell of the food was scinitllating.

A very special mention MUST go to Michael who has welcomed us for the last 3 tours and on Friday, provided us with lots of music for us to dance the night away. We were made to feel VERY welcome with the drinks and special cocktails flowing freely - hence we came back on Saturday dressed as Smurfs...

What a night - one we will never forget and loved the fact that Michael also donned blue paint and a smurf hat to join in.

We highly recommend this pub/restaurant to anyone who wants a fun, friendly and welcoming night out in Bray. Sorry, cant comment on the food other than it looked and smelt delicious!!
