Our Wood Burning Pizza Oven was lit in 1997 and has been churning out pizzas and tasty dinners ever since! The oven is kept at a temperature of 500-550F by burning oak and other hardwoods which are fed through the front by a long handled shovel. This ensures the maximum flavour and a crispiness for every pizza we make. It can hold up to 10 large pizzas at once and cooking time is between 7-10 minutes. Be sure to take a look at the oven and pizza making process using our own homemade dough and Brick Oven pizza sauce. Whatever the special occasion - birthday, anniversary, club dinner, office party- The Brick Oven and The Mariner will help make it a memorable one with delicious food, music and

Pre booked a table for two for an evening meal on the recommendation of a friend. Went for the fish and chips and my wife went for the lasagne, both were exceptional, and my wife added that the lasagne was the best she's ever tasted...outside of Italy! She had the house wine which was a good choice! Two wonderful deserts served in a jar with a handle followed ,prompt and friendly service was evident in the rather full restaurant! I must mention our table server Lucy who really looked after us ,what an efficient and friendly person and a credit to a wonderful restaurant , Will recommend it to all and sundry.More

Being completely transparent, we had an exquisite experience at the Brick Oven. Bantry is a very meaningful spot for me and my partner, we cherish the time we spend there and to say this meal topped the whole trip off is an understatement! Everything, from...the moment we arrived to the moment we left was truly splendid. The outdoor area is large enough to facilitate any number of people, from couples to large families. When we first arrived there were no available tables, which we half expected because it’s such a fab spot. We were added to the waiting list and no more than 15 mins later we were seated and served. I tucked into the house red wine and enjoyed every sip of it. My partner was highly impressed with his Guinness and our food was out of this world. Being lactose intolerant and vegan makes ordering pizza quite difficult, so for me to actually be able to order and enjoy a pizza is rare. I was amazed by the options and diversity of the menu, as was my partner. Our server was very kind and accommodating making the meal all that more enjoyable! I can without a doubt recommended the Brick Oven to anyone and everyone. If you’re a picky eater, or a complete foodie then this is the spot for you! The staff are outstanding and the food is magical! We will be back again!!More

The title gives it away - the Brick Oven. Last Friday we had 2 gorgeous pizzas, I had the seafood, my other half the vegetarian. Tasty and filling. But what about the rest?? Last evening I had the prawn and lobster risotto, himself had the...monkfish and scallop gratin. Wow, my risotto was like a good wine, delicious tastes, scents and nuances. My husband had a grin on his face as he delighted in his choice. Good size portions. Thank you for a memorable meal.More

Fantastic service, friendly staff and great food. We got take away meals twice during a recent family holiday in Bantry. The staff were so warm and the food was delicious each time. We were super impressed too as my daughter has an egg allergy and...the staff knew the ingredients in pizza and were reassuring. Well done!More

Food is incredible in this place but is let down by the restaurant and staff. It's clear this place hasn't seen any work since 2020, the poster in the toilet is still advertising music for March 2020. Service was average with lots of staff talking...to each other at the bar. On a big positive note, the food is amazing. Pizza's, pasta, dessert all top class. Wine good too. Will come back to the brick oven next time I'm in Bantry but it needs some improvement.More

Food was expensive and basic enough. I had to run to Supervalu to 'top up the tank'. Atmosphere was nice as it had that rushed Italian vibe.
