Tried brooks for the first time last night and so glad we did. The food was delicious and lovely comfortable setting. He had the steak which he said was amazing and I had the chicken caesar burger which was delicious. Shared the lemon meringue for desert, it was huge and more than enough for two people. Really tasty. The staff... More
