“The Smile came Here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Within the lead up to Christmas it is always nice to go out and to avoid having just one more meal to make and clear up afterwards. Previous experiences have led me to ask 'where did the smile go?' and the answer is - 'Brooks'. The service is excellent even under pre Xmas pressure. The principals are on top form and each and every 'waiting' person is able to perform at the level required. What a joy to feel genuinely welcome at a restaurant and that the staff team are trying to please. The food was excellent with good and innovative choices without being too 'Christmassy'. After all you would have to endure that on Christmas Day! Good choice of wine, well kept and presented. This is a great little restaurant run by a confident and well oiled team. Thank you Brooks.

“CHRISTMAS EVE DINING OUT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

A very busy evening did not let the standard of the food or the service drop, well done to all the staff invoived. My wife and I had fillet steaks cooked blue. This was one of the top three steaks that either of us had ever eaten. I enjoyed mine so much that I could have eaten a second one but without the veg! A very professional high quality restaurant.

“Never disappointed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Brook's is a bit more expensive than most eateries in the area; but if you want quality every visit then you cannot go wrong. As a rule we only go for special occasions, birthdays and anniversaries. The quality of food, presentation, intimate atmosphere and friendly service all help to make it memorable. The food does sometimes take longer to arrive ; but then it is all cooked to order.

“Ok food, good value early bird”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Good for the price we paid, we had the early bird menu with the option of two or three courses. We went for the latter, whilst the food was ok, wouldn't have liked to be paying a la carte prices for it. I had the fish for the main course which was a very generous portion, but there was so much water under it it diluted the sauce, which I think actually might have been quite good. My friends at chicken which came as two chicken breasts. Can't fault the size of the portions. What was disappointing was the staff's lack of knowledge of the menu - one of the party was quite excited at the prospect of orange marmalade ice cream, only to be told she couldn't have it because it wasn't on offer on the EB! Significantly, we weren't asked how our meal was!

“Bouillabaise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

What a fantastic meal! As ever, fantastic service, a personal welcome and a meal to die for. Bouillabaise was amazing - we have eaten it many times in France and were not disappointed tonight in Brighouse. A rich base, great selection of fish and seafood plus frites, rouille and garlic croutes - how more authentic do you want? Brooks is all about amazing food, good value for money and a great night out. We go to Brooks for special occasions - my 50th birthday in the private dining room with 14 friends could not have been bettered - absolute perfection including catering for a 7 year old who loved every minute, a meal with friends or just the two of us because we know it will always exceed our expectations. I recommended Brooks to friends from London who were amazed at he quality of the food, the personal service which accommodated dietary requirements and the great atmosphere - they still talk about it and use Brooks in Brighouse as the bar to which London restaurants have to aspire. Yet another great night!
