Excellent venue

Service was good although more seating needed prior to ordering. Decor excellent and menus presented well. Staff as friendly as ever. Liked the quirky wines on offer. Food good but not outstanding. Will revisit for an Early Bird menu.

This was our first visit after reopening after the fire, and it was lovely to see the improved Brooks. Lovely decor but the same great menu, friendly staff and comfy seating area. The place was very busy but we had booked a table. Same delicious food, we all enjoyed the ambience and can't wait to come back again. PS –... More

The food was excellent, very reasonable pricing and the staff were the best. I have been in this business myself so appreciate just how hard they work. If I visit... More

Four of us, all men, out for a regular get-together meal. First time at Brooks since it opened after its disastrous fire. Bright and airy. Well decorated. An improvement. Helpful staff. Comfy chairs to choose your meal from a good menu with specials and an early bird option. Adequately stocked bar but no draught beer - but the bottles are... More

We booked a table for 7.30pm. Bad news. The place was packed with people on the early bird special deal. We, being too late for this, had to wait for all of those meals to be served before eventually getting our a la carte meal at 8.30. Food was fine but if you can't get there in time for the... More
