The people who live around Brighouse are very lucky to have so many really nice restaurants to choose from. In many ways Brooks is the best of the lot when considering the overall experience. The food is excellent and the choices interesting and sometimes innovative. The wine list is not extensive but it offers a good choice to please most people without going overboard price wise. Service is prompt, courteous but never pompous or rushed. There are small crayons in a discreet dish at most tables for those who get bored with the company they are in or who wish to doodle whilst they eat. (Very few these days take up the offer!) It is just another item in the relaxed approach the owners use to treat their guests. On entering the restaurant you are offered a seat in the 'bar area' where you can choose from the menu and wine list, whilst enjoying an aperitif. You are made to feel very welcome by one of the two owners who are adept at making you feel relaxed and more like an old friend than simply a customer. When leaving, this informal friendly attitude is again much to the fore. The whole experience gives a warm feeling when leaving the restaurant. Other restaurants in the area have equally as good food but none I have visited yet have managed to capture the wonderful atmosphere created by Brooks
