I have seen some amazing acts at The Brook. The staff are always pleasant and the bar staff deal well with the hoards of people (advice to visitors - go to the upstairs bar it's usually quieter!). Check out the website and you'll be surprised at the number of bands you'll have heard of. Word of warning, it does get... More

The Brook is quite simply one of the south's best music venues. They mostly host popular tribute bands but it occasionally has an upcoming band passing through a few times a year. It is unique in that you can view acts from ground level or via the upstairs where you can overlook a balcony to see the stage from higher... More

Ive enjoying many an evening with the Brook catering to my eclectic music taste, sometimes you take your chance, especially with Tribute bands, but virtually never had a poor experience

Love it. Saw the Dutch prog-rockers Focus here in March. The staff are friendly, the beer choices good & sound quality excellent. We got there extra early, to get the best seats. We chose to sit upstairs, right above the stage. Friends had warned me the sound wouldn't be so great upstairs, but we wanted a seat at a table... More

I've enjoyed a number of concerts here over the past few years. It's small and crowded, gets some good acts, and altogether RIGHTEOUS. Recommended!

Went to see Simon and Garfunkel show. What a great venue, drinks priced ok which was a surprise. All the staff we spoke to were first class. At the end of the evening we were not ushered outside to wait for our taxi, and we were last to leave. Well done if in the area again will certainly call back.

A great music venue. I've made the 90 mile round trip three or four times a year for the past six years to see some great gigs. Good atmosphere and real ale in the bars. Highly recommended

Have been to the Brook loads of times and I love it. Brilliant line ups of original bands and the best tributes. Would recommend seeing the Johnny Cash Roadshow and Doors Alive. Intimate venue, mostly standing room but some seating which if you want you have to get there early to nab!

If you are into live music this is the best venue in Southampton, in my opinion! Mainly tribute acts with the 'old' legend thrown in. We saw Leo Sayer here last year and for 67 years young, he was note perfect. Famous Red Sox was our most recent gig and they never fail to please you! SAS Band are always... More
