Ignore the setting of the building, which is attached to a pretty hideous piece of what looks like 1960-70s “architecture”. Once inside, we found the welcome was warm and the dining room very attractive, with well-spaced tables. The waiting staff are from various years in a 4-year course and, in our case, were delightful and efficient. We were a group... More

We had our first lunch here this Wednesday, we got there early, they were very accommodating and took us to our table right away. Menu looked great - well described and quite 'fine dining' in description, front of house looked very clean and smelt of a floral oil diffuser. A little masking but no complaints. We placed our order of... More

Been to the Brookes Restaurant a few times now and I always have a great experience. The food is consistently good & delicious with lovely service. The cost is extremely reasonable. Will definitely be back.

This was our 2nd time eating at the Brookes restaurant and we have already booked to return for the 3rd! This is a testament to the high standard of food and service. It's the little touches which make it a great experience such as, the bread was still warm. We chose the spicy lentil soup which was amazing and the... More

On arrival into the restaurant, we were welcomed by happy smiling staff who promptly showed us to our table. Our waitress was very attentive and accommodating to our needs, alongside the rest of the staff who were very professional. There were a variety of locally sourced produce on the menu, which all sounded extremely appetising. The portion sizing for all... More

Went with friends a few weeks ago and enjoyed every minute. the welcome was warm and friendly, the service was attentive, friendly and well timed and the food was very good, flavorsome and well presented. the wine list was great with pleny of good chocies and for just over 15 pounds for 3 courses, its brilliant for the price.

I had the three course lunch menu, and loved all of it. The service and presentation were immaculate and the food was absolutely delicious. The reason this meal is one of the best I have had in a restaurant is because it was so much more than my expectation - I thought that because we were on a University campus... More

The last experience i had in Brookes restaurant was unbelievable. I asked for a fish fillet, they brought a very big plate and I ate it all. Service was very good, waitresses always checked we are happy. Walnut tart indeed was brilliant. For the amount of money I paid I had very good experience and incredible delicious food. Thank you...

Brookes restaurant We had our first experience in the Brookes restaurant recently and left very satisfied and full. The restaurant and kitchen are based on a hospitality training ground course for the first years, so it is very impressive of how successful and amazing the restaurant actually is. The greeting at the door was unforgettable, friendly and very swift in... More

Our visit to the Brookes Restaurant was enjoyable, the food was served professionally despite being a training restaurant and the presentation was of a very high standard. As soon as we arrived we were welcomed with a smile and shown to our well-presented table. There was a wide selection of foods on the menu all which were different and interesting.... More
