Parents over from Italy - mother has high standards, and father doesn’t like to be cold. They loved Brinkley’s!

Always welcoming and enjoyable. No problem staying longer than the allotted time. Good affordable wines. 12.5% service could be 10% , but no quibbles there. Reliable menu, however I would like to see some seasonal changes from time to time. Overall wonderful as usual, especially on a balmy Saturday afternoon in late-Summer. Would always return.

Great location with s real buzz. Was s semi -balmy evening and we were lucky to have a perfect table outside in the garden with the roof half open to start with, as planned. Good wholesome food with s very well priced wine list, one could be forgiven for thinking that one was in the Sof France where I had just come from.
Nice cosmopolitan crowd in the restaurant all ages. Brinkleys in Chelsea, a great institution.

We had a a lovely time and our server was very pleasant and attentive! The wine was excellent and enjoyed shopping in the wine store! The food was fine, but not wow. Prices over all were pretty reasonable. On a beautiful night, it is a place I'd recommend highly.

Great atmosphere. Excellent service despite being packed to the rafters inside and outside. Smallish menu but with something to please everyone and a good wine selection to match.

We had a table in the garden instead of a table on the street as required. It was really very noisy but the food was good.

The burger was really dry and quite bad. The chicken salad was nice as were the starters and the wine (even the house wine).

I have not been to Brinkleys for many years, however they have reduced the garden to a very small space and to me, it just isn't the same. However I cannot fault the service, and the food, especially their £20 pound 2-course lunch meal deal, so that really made up for it. But if your going there for the outdoors and some sunshine, don't bother - too small a space and not a lot of sun captures the area.

Far to noisy for anybody above the age of 29. Thumping music. Hysterical Friday night shouting tables. Shame. so nice for lunch but should have a noise warning attached for evening - especially the weekend I presume. plus a party downstairs. torture.

I am a local so have frequented Brinkley’s many times over the years. It’s onssirent and always a good option for a casual night out with friends or for a celebration. Keep up the good work.

The menu overall was unimaginative. The duck main course was dreary. The salmon was ok. The "No" re recommend is qualified - should be "probably not".

Brinkley's is the architypal neighbourhood restaurant.
A great bar, fabulous garden - in summer with the roof open, in winter with the roof closed. The food is good to great, partly predictable partly surprising in trems of flavours. The wines start at sub-£20 for a good white and reds are not bad in the early £20s price-point, if one like quantity above all. Higher priced wines offer good value too, altghough I'm not sure that I'd ever go there for a £750 Ch. Latour to match the food. More choice around the £25 - 35 mark would be preferred. Service is friendly and enthusiastic. Always enjoyable. It suits every occasion.

I was first seated on the street side which has speakers with awful music. Asked to be seated in the garden which was a lot better. The garden is beautiful and covered, and there is no music needed as the restaurent fills up quickly. Service is very good, however the menu is not the same as "brinkleys" , and I prefer the Brinkleys menu. The schnitzel and lobster cocktail salad are outstanding
