When visiting Brookes Restaurant, you are instantly met with a professional and friendly atmosphere as soon as you step through the door. The student run restaurant is located in the heart of the university’s campus, and delivers faultless customer service. Open five days a week, the restaurant offers a campus lunch, monthly menu as well as a carefully thought out and delicious selection of blackboard specials. The selection of wine match the dishes perfectly, and all the locally sourced ingredients add to the flavour and entire meal experience.
On arrival, we were greeted by attentive and friendly staff which continued throughout the whole meal. All staff looked professional and smartly dressed, which added to the positive image and ambience of the restaurant. The students of the hospitality school, who served and prepared our food, were knowledgeable of the menu and observant of all our needs.
Our meal consisted of Glazed Fairford Partridge with lentil salad and damson vinaigrette, a perfect combination of ingredients creating a taste sensation. The tenderness of the meat was complimented well with the sweetness of the vinaigrette. Following this, there was the option of a Honey Roasted Belly of Kelmscott Pork, beautifully cooked and well presented. An alternative option was the Cornish Gurnard, which was delicately accompanied by a bouillabaisse reduction and anchovy beignet. Both main courses were unique and of a high standard. Finishing the meal was a Waterperry Pear Crumble with a cinnamon custard and rosemary syrup. This dish completed the meal with a sweet and perfect combination of textures and flavour.
After the great customer service and delicious food, we would both recommend and return to Brookes restaurant without hesitation. It’s a credit to the university.
