Good food, lively vibe. Good for dinner with city colleagues but too noisy for a date.
Great food. Great menu. Not cheap but will be back.
We were not advised that it was a limited menu on Sundays and also when we added a child not advised that the kids menu was also not available which was disappointing.
The food and ambience were let down by rushed service. Our plates were cleared before all of us had finished eating, the bill arrived before we had finished desserts and we were asked to vacate the table even though we hadn't been told there was a turnaround time in any email or on arrival and we were about to leave anyway. Decor was nice, food was good, but a disappointing experience.
This was our second visit to Brigadiers. Last time was a birthday lunch and this was a Saturday evening business meal. Both times we were seated in Blighters and loved the atmosphere each time. Our server was really friendly and patient with us as we spent too long catching up and not enough time looking at the menu. Starters were amazing and we all shared a few of the dishes and cleared the lot. Our guests were a little worried as they normally stick to meat off the bone and were looking for something with chicken breast for main which isn't really an option as it's not what is eaten in India. However they were really impressed with their eventual choices as well as ours. The starters were so good we almost didn't have room for a mains and definitely not for dessert which was a pity. We had to vacate our table as we took so long to choose our food but it was handled really well and we were found room at the bar to have coffee and after dinner drinks.
Overall we would definitely recommend Brigadiers and I'm hoping I'll have room for dessert next time.
Service was outstanding despite it being ‘crazy busy’. The food was unique and uniformly very good/excellent. We are returning in 2 weeks time.
