“Old fashioned Carvery - excellent!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

A no frills old style Carvery, Turkey, Beef and Pork, all the trimmings, excellent value, and a packed restaurant. If you're expecting find dining this place is not for you. BUT if you're looking for a good value, carvery then for £9/head this place is good value, with good food. Brussel Sprouts were a little "al dente" but better that way than over cooked. Would I go again - yes, but get in early because Sunday lunch it was packed with a long queue for the Carvery.

“Enjoyable stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We stayed here for 2 nights in Aug, we booked at short notice and as he hotel didn't have any family rooms left we asked if a camp bed could be put in a double room which the hotel agreed to. The room was spacious and clean, the double bed was comfortable my daughters camp bed was not as comfy but she still managed to sleep, our room was above the bar and we could hear some noise but this did not stop us sleeping. We didn't eat at the hotel as we wanted to try different restaurants. The staff were friendly and overall we had an enjoyable stay at the Brook hotel and would recommend it as a cheap break.

“Sunday lunch”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Since our last visit the portions have really shrunk in size! The meat (beef) was overdone & did not taste like it had been freshly cooked the same day. Disappointing as usually we are very pleased with the standard.
