“Art for Art's Sake!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

I am in total agreement with the other reviewers. This is a wonderful gallery to visit and be inspired. The staff are very knowledgeable but also very pleasant, welcoming and helpful. There is no pressure put on you to buy, but if you do decide on something, the gallery works hard to make sure everything is perfect for you. We are very lucky to have Brook Gallery in Budleigh Salterton.

“A 'must visit' spot in Budleigh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

I have three reasons to visit Budleigh Salterton: family, the beautiful coast and this gallery. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and I have learnt a lot about various artists, styles of printing and information about galleries, publishers and art in general. Over the years I have bought a number of works and I am delighted with them all. I don't consider myself wealthy or especially knowledgeable however I have been treated with respect and interest when choosing a piece of art and this is a good enough reason to return and enjoy the exhibitions. Have a look yourself.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

This was not our first visit, but there is always something new to enjoy. We were delighted with the Quentin Blake exhibition and it is good to have a quality gallery here in Devon.

“Wonderful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

This is a fantastic gallery. Regular changes of exhibits and well known artists are its great features. They also have pottery work by Amanda Popham which is beautiful and thought provoking. Enjoy a visit!

“The Brook Gallery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

A lovely gallery with friendly knowledgeable staff and an extremely impressive and wide ranging choice of artworks. Well worth a visit. I only wish we lived a little closer; Nottingham is a bit of a drive!
