About the restaurant
Dead Centre is not a faceless corporation…milking the beer industry for all it’s worth. Instead, we’re a tight knit crew that relies on friends, family, colleagues and other breweries to create a product that we can truly be proud of.

Fresh, flavoursome and (wherever possibly) local ingredients are what give our beer it’s character. Cutting corners here is not an option at Dead Centre Brewing. We believe you get out what you put in…so only the best goes in.

Party of 3: pizzas were a hit! My burger was only OK. Also, I don't see why I should pay the 15c for the plastics/can deposit scheme! That should be on the pub, not the customer! I don't get the deposit back!

This was our second visit to Bramley. First was for dinner and it was divine. Every little piece of food was packed with flavour. We returned for a Fathers Day lunch and it didn't disappoint! Really nice atmosphere, food was fantastic again. 5 stars all around.

5 star service. Beautiful ambience in an amazing property. We drove 30min to get there, but it is a real treat for early dinner/late lunch, nice to walk around the grounds after a good meal, the food was amazing, and there is only one point I would highlight that vegan/veggie options weren't great but otherwise a really good experience

About the restaurant
Opened under new ownership in December 2023, we are located adjacent to our existing Roundwood Stores bakery and artisan food store. Come and enjoy good food, wine, craft beer, and log fires in the beautifully restored 1820’s Coach House.
The pub is open midday until late, Thursday to Sunday, for walk-ins and reservations.
The menu is slightly more casual (as are some of the tables) but the room is cozy and the experience the same.
The restaurant is open midday for lunch and 5pm for dinner, walk-ins or reservations available.

We look forward to welcoming you.

An exciting new restaurant based in the heart of Naas, Co. Kildare.

We aim to source and produce everything possible, right here in Ireland.

The food was delicious and the staff could not have been more helpful. All were super accommodating to some special dietary requirements at our table.

About the restaurant
Winter opening hours:
Open for:
12-2.45pm Mon-Sat
5-7.30pm Mon-Thurs (if later is required please contact the restaurant and we will don our best to accommodate)
5-8.30pm Fri-Sat

The Green Acres restaurant is one of the most popular in the South East.

It is located on the ground floor, surrounded by shelves of the world’s finest wines. The ambiance is friendly, relaxed and is enhanced by the helpful service of a very efficient staff.

The food is prepared under the watchful eye of local Chef Ritchie Trappe and as Wexford is both an agricultural and maritime hinterland, our supplies are sourced locally.

The award winning wine list which has been assembled by James O’Connor and Donal Morris is the most extensive in the Country and offers both value, and outstanding quality.
