Great Sunday lunch

Have been here several times on a Sunday. Always have a lovely meal plenty of meat and a good selection of veg. Nice puddings too. Only gripe is that the drinks are maybe a bit expensive.

We've been to Fullbrooks perhaps a dozen times & have thoroughly enjoyed it every time. The quality of the food is first rate & matched by the service, very friendly & amenable. I have a favourite chicken dish that until recently included mushrooms, however they were always removed for me & it was never any trouble! I am now over... More

Recently went there for a Sunday lunch. I am not a big meat eater, so I decided on the fish. Weight / size wise, it must have been half the meat portion. And as for the veg, the Swede and Carrots were cut up so small, that it was almost impossible to use the fork the correct way to eat... More

Thank you for your review, we have since changed the supplier for our fresh vegetables as the wrong product was sent the week you came. With regard to the portion size we normally get told we give too much, if you weren't happy you only need to ask and we could have sorted your issues on the day. More

I've been to Fullbrooks at least ten times, and this is my first review, because I felt it was about time. It is a small cosy restaurant so has a very good ambience. The staff are very friendly and helpful (my wife cannot drink cold white wine so they put warm water in the ice bucket!!!. What can I say??).... More

We have visited a number of times over the last year and have never been disappointed. This visit was no exception and the choice, especially on a Sunday is great. My daughter has coeliac disease and they are so helpful and pay attention to her needs. The meats and fish are always cooked perfectly and the choice of vegetables changes... More

Great little family owned, spotlessly clean restaurant. Lovely that some little places like this keep the butcher and the fruit and veg man in business and the the ready meals factory! Well done Fullbrooks :)

Never been before but recommended by my parents. Must say it was quite good. Lamb rump was very nice and so was the apple crumble for dessert! I liked that it was a small venue so there's not too much going on. The 2 people working easily handled all that was happening. Would definitely recommend for a meal. And a... More
