We rarely visit Twickenham so we were looking forward to another chance to try Brula. On previous visits we were very impressed but it wasn't as good as it had been or should be. The food did not justify the prices and the delays for everything were excessive especially as the restaurant was nearly empty. It's a pretty poor show... More

Brula used to have a great reputation, and may still have popularity for some. However on Tuesday night we had a dismal meal. We considered that most of the menu was either pre cooked or kept in a chiller cabinet. My husband's crab starter was so cold that it had lost its taste. My lasagne was of a poor quality... More

we had three course meal. It was really good value for money, as they charge 19.99 for either two or three courses. the meals were of good quality and the service was one of the best, really welcoming and pleasant. we were very impressed with the restaurant, as it is located near St Margaret railway, with the beautiful stained glasses...

The Brula in St Margarets was a new venue for us, it didn't disappoint. Small & busy with good atmosphere, although the tables were a little close together. A good selection on the menu, our meals were well presented and we ate everthing we were served! Would recommend & would go again, a little cheaper than some Richmond restaurants with... More

Friends 50th Birthday - used the front upstair private dining room. Brula staff were excellent - decorated the room as I was not back in time from the city. I had dropped off the decoration items previously for them. Great setting - food was terrific and the night was perfect.

I was looking for somewhere comfortable, friendly, not too noisy and had to be French cuisine. These were the requests of my father for his 93rd birthday and the 56th wedding anniversary of his and my mother's. I had been to Brula several years ago and liked it, just liked it. This time, it could not have been better!! We... More

Friendly, local froggie in Twickers. Well presented and tasty food but some dish portions can veer on the "economic" side. Considerate service in fairly tight surroundings. Densely printed, busy wine list surprisingly difficult to read in the evening gloom. Frequented by the mature, comfortable diner. Worth a try.

The food was certainly edible. But the portions were very small for main courses. Starters were fine but lack of yolk of a runny kind ruined the pork. Wine list a bit odd or at least hard work to read. Given great reviews before we were just left a little lacking.

This was my second visit at the charming French restaurant Brula in St Margarets where I live. The first visit ( one year ago) was disappointing. I am delighted now to discover that Brula under the new management offers delicious French cuisine, great atmosphere and excellent service. I took my daughter and the the kids for dinner and we had... More

An elegant French restaurant in St Margarets between Twickenham and Richmond. I've been here a few times over the years and have never been disappointed. The food is always of a high quality as is the service. I've been here with family and friends as well as with my wife. It can cater for all. I've had better snails as... More
