As always visit to the dockyard delivers. Quality breakfast with lots of choice, excellent service and good value for money. Seems to get busier every time I visit.

Delicious freshly made meals always worth the wait. Great location, nice surroundings be willing to share your bench if it’s only two of you dining as it’s always busy & it would be just rude not to make room for everyone! My husband loves the...More

Ate here with a mixed group. Food good service good. Not a huge selection but what is there is tasty. Very small, not suitable for big groups in my opinion.

A great spot serving great food - love the atmosphere, staff and above all 'The Dockyard Burger! Highly recommended for a bite to eat after a brisk walk on the sea front.

Sorry. I have no allergies and never asked about gluten free food. I only hate garlic.

Tucked away in the middle of Bray Harbour, you'll have to look closely to find Dockyard No.8 but you will be more than rewarded once you do. This is a top class breakfast, brunch, lunch and bistro spot that boasts an ever changing and innovative menu. Expect things to go above and beyond the usual fare while never compromising on quality. This a quaint and intimate spot where you really feel as though you can have dialogue with the chefs and those serving you as well as take in the harbour beauty.
