Our group of 5 went here one night during our stay in Southbroom recently. We were persuaded by the reviews on TA but were very disappointed. A giant bar dominates the inside of the restaurant - so we thought it obvious that cocktails would be available, we asked for the cocktail menu but were brought the food menu. When we... More

The food was good when it arrived. The wait between courses was a bit too long for no reason. The TV playing live rugby was a bit distracting as the volume was too loud, this after requesting the sound to be turned down. Broomers isn't sure what it is, a sports bar or a bistro with respect to menu and... More

We were a group of 8 (4 adults and 4 kids) and we were suitably surprised at what an awesome little restaurant this is. Prices are extremely reasonable and the food was outstanding and plentiful. Service was terrific and they accommodated us without a booking even on a busy night. Hands on family run and extremely friendly. Will defiantly return!... More

Have been here twice in the last two weeks and have found the food great. Very nicely presented, reasonable and in a pleasant environment. Fish is very good and can be deep fried or grilled.

OK, when you don't expect much. Excellent calamaris. Young staff, mostly locals... Good, if you just want to hang out a little bit

Broomers has a history which is quite hard to imagine considering the current decor however, given the new, young and vibrant owners, this reflects their personalities and the particular "vibe" they wish to impart; that's not to say that Broomers caters for only young people, on the contrary, it is a very versatile restaurant/pub which serves some amazingly delicious food...

Under new management (ex Fish on the Pond owners). They bring a new exciting dimension to this restaurant that has a great vibe abd a good menu. Well worth a visit.

It was OK to try out Broomers but we won't be back if we want to eat out. Menu is limited and there is little ambition, it's more a list for a snackbar. We ordered a beef burger, spare ribs, calamari, some fish and a steak. Steak was ordered medium-rare and got it very well done, tough meat in a... More

we have visited Broomers on several occassions as we own a holiday home in Southbroom. Our last visit was on May 3rd 2012 and it has recently changed owners. The menu has changed to a pizza/burger based affair which was a real shock. I can only presume it is targeting the teens? Food was forgetful and the restaurant unfortunately lacks... More
