We were in Bray and heading to the main eateries on the sea front when I took a call from a friend who after hearing where we were "shouted down the phone" that we had to visit Dockyard beside The Harbour Bar. Thankfully in retrospect...More

This place deserves all its plaudits - they serve reliably excellent food, well cooked, in a lovely space right on the harbour in Bray. Brilliant brunches.

Ok so this is a nice place with good food but this is my third visit and probably last as the wait for food is ridiculously long. It's only breakfast after all. Not exceptionally busy but just not worth the wait and super slow service.

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.
