The corn fed spicy chicken was excellent and a lovely addition to the menu.

On making the reservation I had not been informed there would be a special Father’s Day menu and not the usual brunch menu. As we had an early booking we had planned on brunch not a Sunday roast and unfortunately they were not willing to make any of the usual brunch options, so we chose to leave and eat elsewhere.

Lovely waitress who served us and was attentive and food was tasty but a little simple for the price. The biggest let down was the noise. Bad acoustics/lack of any cushioning. However, still quite a nice community ambience and would go back but perhaps sit outside or closer to the bar.

I've always loved this place - the food is good, the atmosphere relaxed and it's the ideal week-day or chilled weekend place. The bill can mount up a little quicker than one would like, so it's not necessarily an everyday treat.

Not the best meal I have had here. Burger was over cooked and the French fries were not great. I go fairly often and think it was one of those off days.

The food is good but the menu needs to change more often. It appears to have changed hardly at all over the past nine months. In SW17 branch it needs to change. On the general on line Brinkley’s menu there are things that don’t feature in SW17 branch. It is a shame as the food is well executed. Lack of change may cause us to seek other options

We love the Sunday roast beef lunch, the beef quality is excellent and very well cooked, the vegetables that accompany it are also excellent. We have eaten at Chez Bruce several times previously and I can honestly report that Brinkley’s Kitchen further up on Bellevue Road, SW17, is far superior in every respect. I strongly recommend it.

Our visit was for Sunday lunch . The food was excellent and the staff were lovely. However the kitchen clearly struggle with a full house as we waited 45 minutes for starters. Things did pick up with the rest of the meal thankfully.

Very irritated that we couldn’t have the table we wanted... particularly as the table we were told we couldn’t have remained empty all evening. I go to Brinkley’s reasonably regularly to have dinner with a particular friend... we decided we would go elsewhere next time. Also I think young staff calling middle aged women darling is very annoying.

The menu online on open table is incorrect so we didn't get the meal we planned for. Their new menu is not vegetarian friendly or a healthy for vegetarian kids. It's an nice ambience but I wouldn't go back again

Disappointing that they had curtailed the brunch menu to only 4 dishes given it was Motthering Dubday but without any prior notice of this. Several other guests overheard complaining about the same issue. Otherwise, food and service was fine

Food was v average but what was disappointing was that they forgot about our mains. We had to wait 40mins for our mains to arrive and when it did the roast potatoes on mine and my friend’s dish were hard - similar to the skin of jacket potatoes. Clearly they had been sitting out too long and were reheated too many times. Disappointing as this restaurant has good reviews but the decor and the food was v average. Plenty of other better restaurants in the area
