Description: With the increase in generic pub chains and franchise restaurants, fewer places present a menu to people who still prefer a traditional restaurant with decent home cooked food. The Brook Inn remains a delightful country pub that strives on offering good food with good service, the way it should be. With most of the courses (including the ice cream!) prepared on site, The Brook Inn combines quality and service along with affordable prices.

We have loved this pub for many years but it lacks everything you want/need for a good night out. Groupon voucher used on 2nd January for 4 people but would have been more upset if I had paid full price. Took our friends for a post Christmas night out. How embarrassed we were. 1 No heating- manager/owner wearing a coat.... More

What a complete waste of time and money. Only Half the menu was available. What we did have was either mushy or had the life fried out of it. The beer was not only flat but tasted of cleaning fluid. The room was cold and the staff were completely clueless. All in all an experience best to forget!!!!

Have a Groupon voucher to use up by 26.1.15. I wanted to go tomorrow evening for my birthday and tried phoning several times last week to book. Got the automated voice mail each time, which you can't leave a message on. Have driven past the pub several times and it appeared closed each time. Have just tried ringing again and... More

We have a Groupon voucher which is valid until the end of January. We've been trying to book over the phone but given that it has not been answered for a few days, and the comments below about it being closed, we decided to stop by to check. It is indeed currently closed down, not that there are any signs... More

23 December 2014. A few hours before our Xmas dinner booking, the manager called to say menu wasn't available. OK! We had a bottle of complimentary bottle of house wine on arrival - almost undrinkable. The only food available of the menu were steak, sausage or burgers. The chef refused to meet us so we went into the kitchen to... More

We, like others, have known this pub for many years provide good food, hospitality and atmosphere. Sadly, it is not like that now. Last year, not long after it had new management/staff, we went for a meal with some friends. We thought it was okay but nothing more and gave them the benefit of the doubt for being new to... More

The ale was flat, until it ran out. There was no bitter and lager was also flat. None of the game dishes on the menu were available and no chritmas dinner. Such a shame as this once was a cracking pub.

Six of us went to the brook for a groupon meal, we live local and had been a few times in the past and had always been impressed. However, this visit was awful and we won't be going back. Half of both starters and mains weren't available (despite having booked three weeks previously and informing them we had a voucher... More

The roast that was billed as coming with Yorkshires did not and we had to ask for them to be added, the veg tasted as if it had been cooked... More
