About The Brig & Barrel
The Brig and Barrel – Your friendly, neighbourhood pub, and cosy restaurant, full of classic Scottish charm. With a commitment to exceptional pub classics, using the best local produce and an amazing selection of beer and wine, prepared using the best local ingredients. With as many doggo visitors as we have humans, and located in the beautiful coastal town of Dunbar, The Brig is a destination for pub enthusiasts hunting for something unique.
We operate an over 21's policy at The Brig & Barrel and enforce the challenge 25 scheme. Children and under 21's are more than welcome as part of a family booking.
We have a south facing beer garden with 7 walk-in tables for drinks and a 'Sitooterie' with 4 private booths with heaters under cover. These tables are bookable for food.
Really enjoyed our meal. Good food and great service from friendly staff. Good space for the 2 of us and Hamish Thanks so much.
always a friendly warm welcome, even on a cold december night in covid rules,
Great meal and friendly service.
Superb as always
Great to be back at the Brig & Barrel for lunch ❤️
Great service and food in such difficult circumstances
Great food, great choice of drinks, brilliant atmosphere and friendly welcoming staff. Best boozer in town.
First class and outside seating area very comfortable
Amazing food & service. Outdoor booths are very cosy even in December!
Lovely tasty hot food, Really enjoyed the afternoon, staff very nice,my husband and his cousin really enjoyed the Guinness, would definitely return!
Couldn't fault the place. Lovely meal, great staff and every precaution taken to ensure Covid safe. We took our dog and sat in a heated booth outside. Despite the weather it was nice and cosy.
Had a wonderful meal and the service was excellent. All Covid restrictions were in place and adhered to at all times but this did not spoil the atmosphere or charm.
Great service again from all the staff and all round great value
Visited last week for the first time and new layout was well thought out and a lovely country pub feel. Welcomed on arrival and service was excellent throughout. Food and beer was excellent with a good choice of both. We were inside but sneaked a peak at outside covered sitting area and looked great for a drink or food with individual booths. Would definitely recommend and visit again.
The heated booths out the back are excellent. Choice of two real ales appreciated.
Lovely friendly staff, great food, and treats for the dog! What more could you ask for?!
Just came for drinks only in heated covered booth outside which works really well. The free cup of hot soup later in the evening was a nice touch and most welcome! Will definitely see you again.
Enjoyed our visit . It was busy but well organised with friendly staff . We also felt safe being out with our family
As always food, drinks, service and observation of covid restriction rules first class. Such a treat visiting The Brig and Barrel and can’t wait to return
Excellent all round. I commented on TripAdvisor
A brilliant place with fantastic staff. I love going here when I can. Couldn't recommend it more highly.
Fantastic bar/restaurant with excellent customer service from all staff with a great range of quality food and beers. Highly recommend
This was our first meal and we were absolutely delighted with the food, wine and service. We had a seat at the fireplace so it was a lovely table for a winters day! We would have loved to have left a gratuity on the card machine but this option doesn’t seem to be available.
With social distancing practiced as well as this, it's hard to imagine why the Scottish Government is so quick to shut down the hospitality sector!! Well done to James and his team. They are committed to providing an outstanding community resource, safely, in the face of this awful covid situation. Hats off to them all!!
