“Afternoon Tea for Two”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

What a lovely afternoon ~ it was my daughters 21st birthday and also my mums birthday, I invited 8 friends to join us for "afternoon tea" .... we did have a cuppa but also induldged with a few bottles of Prosecco which was chilled to perfection. I am quite an expert on afternoon tea, and must say the Brunton has got to be up there with the city centre ones, at a quarter of the price. Quite simply the Brunton Bistro does what they say ~ all items are made fresh to order (so NO hard pre-prepared sandwiches with curly corners) the mini freshly baked scones were yumm and the homemade fresh cream meringue was dee-lish. The staff attentive to our every need from the initial enquiry to lighting the birthday candles to wrapping-up the extra goodies that were left over. I'd would reserve for afternoon tea again, not just for a special occasion but for any afternoon !

“Excellent night out!”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

Prior to a visit to the theatre we had a 3 course dinner at the Bistro at the Brunton, our meal was superb! This is a busy restaurant, with a really friendly feel, excellent service & quality, fresh food, cooked to perfection. The wine that is available is also very good. It offers great value for money and is really worth a visit, whether it is for breakfast, coffee, lunch, afternoon tea, or an evening meal - I have no doubt we will be back.

“Pre Theatre Bonus!”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

It is some time since we visited the Bistro. What an improvement. We enjoyed an excellent 3 course menu at £16.95 when not only the food but the service too, was superb. Wonderful value for money and the Viennese Gala which followed made it a memorable evening. We will not stay away so long again!

“A hidden gem”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

Found this hidden gem when making enquires about future performances in the Brunton. If I am being honest that more to kill time when passing through the town than anything else.
Dropped in for what was intended to be coffee and a sandwich, ended up having two courses and a glass of wine.What a lovely establishment, staff were first rate, as was the food, overall fantastic value for money. Portions were huge and very well presented, hardest part was deciding and saying no to a sweet.
I will be back.
Just shows
