Good food & excellent service

The ham hock terrine is lovely and the "posh" fish and chips were mouth-wateringly good - triple cooked chips everything they should be. Breakfast was very good - lots of choice and well cooked. Only downside was strong, overly-bitter coffee. A really good team working here - very... read more

The ham hock terrine is lovely and the "posh" fish and chips were mouth-wateringly good - triple cooked chips everything they should be. Breakfast was very good - lots of choice and well cooked. Only downside was strong, overly-bitter coffee. A really good team working here - very customer-oriented and keen to please.

Don't go there at four in the afternoon. Missed lunch so thought we would have a late sandwich in the Castle. Asked if they did sandwiches in the afternoon the answer was yes so we ordered a pot of tea for two and a sandwich and a salad. While drinking the tea we were informed that there was no chef...

The first morning there were not enough cleared tables to cope with the throng. It was suggested we could breakfast in the Bar section. The Brazz also doubles as a Public Bar with an entrance off the Street. If we had wanted to breakfast in a bar we would have gone to a Pub. We finished our breakfast with "specially... More

Very good place to catch up with a friends. Staff always polite and helpful. The only thing I do not like is Deco. You would get so much attention from people if you could spend some penny on inside. You can't stay the same forever . ;)

I can reommend the ham hock terrine, the chick pea fritters as well as the lemon sole and Somerset lamb rump. With drinks our bill came to just under £70 which... More

So over the last few months we have eaten at Brazz twice, on both occasions we had intended to eat elsewhere, couldn't and ended up at Brazz. This was with some trepidation. Over the years the food has always been pretty good at Brazz, though the menu was pretty stagnant for some years, for us though this biggest issue was... More

Very modern in contrast to the hotel, but very nice. The wrong order was given to me but I was impressed with the very quick resolution. Service was fantastic, we will definitely come here again.
