I decided to visit this place on the bank holiday weekend with eager expectations. I noticed that they offered a vegetarian menu which I presumed would be accommodating for myself. I ordered the ravioli with ricotta and spinach and it was the worst thing I have ever tasted. There was no ravioli, they had substituted this with weird looking lasagne... More

Worst meal I've ever had. Ravioli was so bland. Like a pasta sheet with a tiny tiny bit of spinach in it. And swamped in a gue of watery butter. Cannot believe I had to pay 10 for that. Rip off avoid!!

As with all Carluccio's restaurant - the welcome, ambiance, food at the Brunswick was wonderful! Even though it was busy - there was no pressure to rush and time was aplenty. Thanks!

The best restaurant in The Brunswick by far. I had one of the most memorable birthday meals here lately. The staff are lovely, the service quick, the bellinis divine and the food is great.

I was served by a weird waitress, she was chewing on food every time she was back from the kitchen and she would speak loudly with her mouth full of food to customers. I am not sure whether she was in her right mind or not, but she kept shouting at customers calling everyone babe etc.. She was completely distracted... More

Ate here twice in April. First meal was just two people we were early about 6 pm and were a walk in, so no booking. Atmosphere good and food really excellent.

Strange experience. An initial visit to the ladies' loo revealed a dirty space, grubby floor and wobbly toilet. Not a great start. Service was good, staff were friendly and efficient and the special deal was good value, but the food was odd. Bruschetta of tomatoes was placed on fried bread and tasted rather cardboardy. Chicken orzo salad was literally awash... More

We eat here yesterday and was disappointed. This was a busy restaurant so we thought it would be good, in event the food was very average, service poor and we were charged 11 pounds for two ice creams that were not what was described in the menu. Generally poor and will not return.
