This is an unusual restaurant, staffed in part by students as part of their hotel and catering courses. As result, you can expect a very high standard of service with your drinks served from the left, your plates cleared from the right, your bread served from the basket with spoon and fork and so on, by young waitstaff all immaculately...

Remember these are not professionals! On the four occasions I have visited with friends the quality of food has been excellent and only limited by the creativity of the menu. The service varies as you would expect but it's usually nerves if there is a problem and I think they do a marvellous job in creating the real restaurant experience... More

We were very pleased with our lunch at Brookes Restaurant. We came in a 12:00 for a 3 courses meal. The meals were very delicious. Excellent presentation. My friend had Devonshire Crab, Samphire with blood orange which was super good. The portion was enough for a starter, not too big or small. The crab meat was very clean and fresh,... More

Came here on an 'alpine theme' night with a large group and were quite pleased by the reception and friendly staff. Once the meal started however, we immediately began experiencing quite a few issues. While we all had a fairly simple (boring) appetizer we were a bit amazed that the kitchen had so many troubles getting out a fondue to... More

This is a restaurant I try to visit whenever in the area. The food is great and offers the best value for money to found in this part of the country. The food is prepared to the highest standards by cookery school students. The results are fantastic so no doubt the tuition is of a high standard. Fresh locally sourced... More

This had a lot to deliver as the group have high expectations with food! For those that don't know the restaurant is run by the students from Oxford Brookes University who are on the relevant industry course etc. On entering was disappointed that no one was on the door to greet us or near the till to show us to...
