The Brook is a great big pub with live music. It has a big selection of local and national beers. It has a large bar with TV, but often you have to pay a few £ to go and see the live performances. The bar stretches to the performance lounge. Comfortable chairs at tables with good views of the stage.... More

I was a Brook Virgin up to recently! Was always put off by the outside I actually thought it was a boarded up pub, but when I was told it was The Brook I was surprised as I'd heard only great things about this place. Went on a Thursday evening for a charity event and saw Hattie Jacques playlist, the... More

The Brook is my Go To music venue, when I am feeling down I'll have a quick look on their site to see who's playing that evening and if it sounds good (which everytime it has been!) I shall go down and have a listen! Good value for money, don't rip you off on drinks and a nice family safe... More

The Brook is an institution, it's earthy, noisy, fun with some fantastic bands. We saw the ever popular local band Rufus Stone there a few weeks ago, the venue never fails to live up to it's unique imagine. If your near and there's something on that takes your fancy, I implore you to spend a little for a great night... More

Just the right size they have some fantastic tribute acts in as well as famous people. Glad it's local and not in the town centre. Great fun safe atmosphere.

Ideal size to enjoy both famous and not so famous acts. tribute nights are a must. Reasonably priced bar. Saw M2 (Whitesnake co-founders) and Steven Seagal here once.

Saw Fleetwood mac here and had a Fab night, only problem was due to it being so busy we had to stand all night.

I having a varied taste in music I love the fact that The Brook caters for all types, I lost count of the number of original / tribute bands I've enjoyed there .Some of the groups from my youth that were major players in the 70s & 80s still get the place rocking so go on line and look for... More
