Great venue, nice selection of real ales and spirits. Proper stage with sound and lighting system and live music throughout the week. This is one of theose few gems that support local live music but hosting bands pretty much every night of the week. nice atmosphere. Highly recommended.

We go here all the time and see some pretty incredible bands. Their musicality is superb. The Santana tribute band (I can't remember their name) are fantastic!! As a couple in our mid 40's we are really comfortable in this venue and have enjoyed every visit. Even had my hen night there last October and it was brilliant!!

We had tickets to see Steven Seagal at The Brook, it was very easy to find and we parked in the industrial estate behind. What a fantastic place, we stood on the balcony overlooking the stage for most of the evening as we arrived later than we were hoping, had we arrived earlier I'm sure we would have been able... More

The tickets are good value for money and the sound quality in the venue is superb, perhaps could be slightly louder but there are neighbours. Drinks are reasonable and service is prompt, plus...

We have visited this venue a number of times. It's tiny and you get a much better music experience as a result. It's great to be so close to the bands for a change rather than looking at them on a big screen.

The bar stretches to the performance lounge. Comfortable chairs at tables with good views of the stage.... More
