We have lunch at brookes restaurant. The food is really good especially the game terrine and the peanut butter ice cream, and the waitresses are very polite and hospitable. The atmosphere is good and it is an enjoyable experience.

We entered the Brookes Restaurant and were greeted warmly by the host who took us directly to our appointed table. We were introduced to our waitress and she showed us our seats whilst setting down the menus for us. Although no one offered to take my coat it was no real problem and I simply put it down behind me.... More

The servers assigned to our group of 22 were absolutely charming. They were very corteous, professional, and extremely helpful. We had the pre-fixe for the day --I had the steak and the cheese platter - both were very good for its value. I would highly recommend dining at this restaurant.

First real traditional pannacotta that we have ever had in England. In Italy we said that when there is silence on the table, is because the food is speaking.. today Pannacotta was speaking for us. We had roasted cod for our main dish and it was so nice, the flavour of the fish went well with vegetable. It's brilliant! It's... More
