Coped well with 10 of us for lunch on Twickenham match day

Under new ownership and the staff managed very well last Saturday lunchtime as the place was full. We had a good table on the top floor by the window. I had the smoked duck starter followed by the plaice. Both of which were good but the plaice was swimming in too much oil. Others had the lamb... read more

Been to Brula few times over the years with friends and on our own. They have recently changed ownership but I can advise the food is still excellent and we were made very welcome. We were in the little open room just off the restaurant 6 of us in total. Would recommend for the food we had 3 courses each.... More

Our friends arranged for us to meet for dinner at Brula after previously having a great experience here. Due to a dairy intolerance on my part, I was sceptical about coming to a French restaurant. I did email ahead to check that they would be able to cater for my intolerances and was very relieved to receive an email to... More

We were in the mood for something fine and French, and were very pleasantly rewarded with both at Brula. After a long day at work, I checked to see if the kitchen would still take orders at 21.00, which they did. The manageress was super-pleasant and clearly personally invested in making sure we had the best possible experience. Delicious and... More

It's a while since my last visit and I was a little disappointed. Starters and puddings were good, but mains were rather average. The cheapest wine is now £19.50. Service was OK. The restaurant was sold by its founders in January.

We had a small family gathering at this restaurant. My uncle (who was visiting from Holland) likes authentic French food and wanted to come here a second time because he enjoyed it so much the first time 2 years ago. We were not disappointed! Lovely food and very welcoming staff. I would certainly return again and would say it's good... More

Our visit was our wedding present from my niece and her husband and what a lovely evening it was. For a start it brought back happy memories of eating in France both in decor and also the style of food. The menu was good with plenty of variety, the biggest problem was making a choice as everything sounded lovely. I... More

We recently booked a meeting in the upstairs room at Brula & were bowled over by the fantastic service & wonderful food. Coffee was available all day & the waitress checked just often enough to ensure we had all we needed, but wasn't intrusive. We relocated downstairs for an absolutely delicious lunch, & then had our dessert later in the... More
