Superb venue offering a great mix of up and coming acts, high quality tributes and 'are they still going' brigade. Balcony views are amazing.

Only criticism is that some of the ticketing prices are at the high end but it's London quality bands on your doorstep.

Good beers too !!

The acts were very good although the sound mixer needs to pay more attention to the vocals. The place is well respected, friendly and good value, although could do with a lick of a paint and modernising, especially in the lobby area. I would recommend The Brook, there is a good assortment of acts.

What a fabulous venue for live music! Can't wait to find an excuse to return, plenty of floor space, no queuing at the bar and a high stage which enabled the entertainment to be seen with ease.

Fab atmosphere, okay drinks prices. Friendly staff. Hopeless for parking! Like the fact there is an upstairs gallery too with seating etc. Big enough but not so big it loses its friendliness

I cant believe that this venue is the no 1 venue in Southampton, beating the aviation musuem, the Tudor house and the city walls etc...
Don't get me wrong I have been to the Brook numerous times to see lots of good live bands...and the place is fine... the sound is good, the drinks not that expensive, but to have this as the no 1 attraction in Southampton just shows the poor advertising given out to anything even remotely cultural.
This place does have a high number of tribute acts put on, along with bands who are not in the prime of their singing career. Most of the new younger bands play at the Joiners in Southampton.
