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.

Used to be a great little local, great atmosphere and food. Sadly no more. Bar regularly un stocked, food shocking, and the land has the personality of Gordon Brown - New owners have killed this once busy pub!

Once a very good pub, now under new ownership. Lacks sole and customers this Saturday lunch time which is a good indication probably for the future. Partners meal returned uncooked and the replacement was not much better. Not recovered since previous management left who were brilliant. It will be a long time before we return.

This used to be a really good local, but seems to have been ruined by the new landlord. The food is poor, and on Friday night the music was so loud we had to leave early. There are much better pubs around.

The brook inn was once a great Redditch country pub with great food, drinks and atmosphere. Unfortunately this has now diminished to the point of no return! We haven't been in there for a couple of years, after being served flat beer and the most revolting warm house wine my wife has even tasted, we didn't even open the menu... More

Curlypug, I am sorry to hear about your experience with ourselves at The Brook. I can only apologise that you feel the quality of beer during your visit was not as it should be and that the wine was warm. A large glass of house wine is served at £4.20 so again I can only apologise if you have been... More

We were very sceptical about visiting the brook after reading the last couple of reviews however we are very glad we did. We had a very pleasant evening with great service lovely food and a great atmosphere and general feeling around the pub. The service was efficient yet friendly and our food came within reasonable time frames. The food was... More

We had booked a table and the other table next to ours was reserved and there was another table of four people, served ahead of us. We waited 20 minutes before our order was taken we waited 45 minutes for our starters. None of us had eaten and we were starving. We had to get up several times and find... More

We have visited this pub many times but not recently so we booked it for a special anniversary meal. The first impression was not good as the car park was empty. The second impression was worse as they did not have any Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc. The final nail in the coffin was when the waitress informed us that... More

This place used to be outstanding. Family run and with superb home cooked food. What a huge disappointment it is now. Food is what you would expect at at a 2 for 1 type of pub, but at twice the price. Frozen chips have replaced the previous home cooked chunky chips. A 3" by 2" piece of pate with two... More
