The Brookes Restaurant is a shining example of the great strides British cuisine has made in the last few decades. The restaurant itself is comprised of a sophisticated, yet very comfortable dining area, with a full bar and from the looks of it a very large and state of the art kitchen. My friend and I ate here and we... More

We visited Brookes restaurant on a Friday for lunch and received a warm and cheerful welcome from the Brookes manager. What we were first drawn to was the large glass wall, which together with the soft lighting created a bright and airy setting. Although the restaurant was not full, the setting of the tables and the tasteful background music contributed... More

The staff are attentive and polite, nothing is too much trouble for them. Remember that often the serving staff are training and they do a very good job. I have been numerous times and always had very enjoyable meals - the set lunch menus and the Christmas menu in particular are very good value for essentially fine dining meals.

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
