Awesome venue.

Great acoustics, tucked out the way of the city centre and nice little gem in southampton! Would love to see a lot more upcoming artists play here.

if you like your music then this is the place to visit for live music. Some of the acks are tribute bands, and some are the original bands.The price for the tickets, and the drinks is very reasonable. There is allways a good atmosphere with people enjoying the bands.We have been there several times and we will be there again.

Been here several times over the years, always for tribute bands. Its a great place for live music and gives more intimate feel (max 500 people) rather than the big arenas. There's a good variety of acts, some original, that perform here. Always a good evening. Drinks a reasonable price, bar staff do a cracking job.

Have been here a few times now to see mainly tribute bands. Varied bands and something for everyone. Good ticket prices. Great place to see bands, and a great atmosphere. Bars both upstairs and downstairs.

About 25 years ago, I was in Southampton and remember the Brook going from a run down pub/music venue, to being a well run location that was encouraging some great bands. Over the years, the Brook has enhanced its reputation further and it's great that all these years on they are still hosting some excellent bands and seeing some fantastic... More

Great small gig venue. You can have a drink and watch the band with ease. Not a great area around the Brook but Portswood is close and a couple a nice pubs and restaurants

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
