We were staying in The D hotel and looked up trip advisor to see where we would dine.

We chose Bru. It was roughly less than 10 minutes walk from the hotel.

From the minute we arrived, we were made to feel so welcome by Laura.

My better half and I are at Slimming World. I was trying to be good and Laura showed me their SW inspired menu.

I had sirloin steak, frylite chips, mushrooms, steamed vegetables and pepper sauce made with creme fraiche. It was £23.95 and worth every penny. Very tasty and filling.

My other half had salmon fillet on a bed of noodles and stirfry vegetables. It was also excellent.

I have a sweet tooth and was enticed by Alan the manager to have a SW inspired dessert. The eton mess was really good.

We loved the food and service so much that we decided to go back for lunch. We were delighted to meet Susan the owner.

We had a beautiful tomato and pepper soup with SW inspired BLT's. We then had the chocolate mousse. OMG it was so delicious.

Later that night we returned again for dinner. We were served by Ciara and another lovely lady..sorry I forgot your name. We met Joe the chef.

I was delighted my weight stayed the same this week. Considering all the class local craft beers I drank in Bru and whilst away.

I will certainly be back in Bru and will be telling all my friends and colleagues to visit.

Well done Bru. You are the number one restaurant in Drogheda in my view.

Thank shelly-ann

A maintain this week is very impressive after a holiday, well done to you both. We look forward to seeing you next time your passing Drogheda and pop into us here in bru.

We walked here from the D hotel and it was a nice walk. Food was very good. The waitress was super helpful and gave us testers of many beers to help us decide.

I attended a cocktail class in Bru last weekend as part of a hen party, we had the most lovely evening there. From trying to organise, Susan always came back promptly to any emails and was very accommodating. The 2 guys doing the cocktail class were really nice and friendly and didn't mind a load of silly women giggling at them. It was really great fun and really good value for money. There was also a lovely girl going around taking photos of us all, they'll be fun to see!! All in all, I would really recommend this to anyone looking for something fun to do in Drogheda, and like I said before, great value for money. Thanks to all in Bru.
