Lovely meal with family. Great location and atmosphere very pleasant. Only downside was I felt menu was very limited choice. No salmon, no fillet or sirloin steak and no curry or stir fry dish which was disappointing. However I would go back. Burger very tasty.

Sat upstairs and staff were brilliant. Food was simply gorgeous and the coffee was also lovely. Well worth the short trip from Dublin.

Dockyard and family favorite for Breakfast, lunch and dinner! Love their Thursday night dinner where you can bring your own wine! If you live seafood the evening menu is perfect for you!

Fish and chips were excellent. Burgers are large and take twenty minutes to cook but worth the wait. Dog friendly restaurant. Friendly staff. Worth a visit.

Went here for brunch on a recent visit to the area and must say I was impressed. Both my girlfriends and my own portion was generous and very tasty. I will return here given the opportunity. The location is quite cool also.

I went for brunch with my family a few weeks ago. It was a Saturday morning so we knew it would be busy, but the food is definitely worth the wait. For a small place it’s nicely laid out to maximise the space. The pancakes...More

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.
