    Service and food excellent, the staff were just lovely, knowledgeable about the food and wine and made us feeled valued. All courses served to 4 diners at the same time - no waiting. Asked for one cheese course to share for 3 - it was so generous Odd requests such as " no onion", "not too much chilli" or "extra olive oil" were all remembered and done Thank you

    Received a voucher from my daughter as a mother's day gift as we are hoping to move to the area soon. Was very excited to try this restaurant as I had heard wonderful things about it. From start to finish I couldn't fault the experience. From the courteous, attentive staff to the varied menu of delicious food, a most enjoyable time was had. I had already been warned that a large party had been booked in coinciding with our visit so was expecting noise and delays but was pleasantly surprised by the speed of the delicious courses. I would highly recommend this restaurant and can't wait to visit again!

    The food was delicious, attractive, well presented & was a pleasure to consume. The overall ambience was lovely and the decor attractive making giving a luxurious feel to the experience.The only detraction from the 'good vibe' was a group of loud women who over powered our ability to converse with each other, which was further exacerbated by the fact that the dining area is a small & cosy. I appreciate that the venue has no control over who eats there but very little attempt was made to address the situation as the ladies became louder with alcohol. As a result our party were forced to relocate to continue our evening.

    We visited for my MIL’s birthday and brought our 2 year old daughter along. I was worried she might get a bit bored but the staff were amazing with her! She absolutely loved them and has been telling me since about her new friends! The service was outstanding. All the staff are friendly, attentive and you can tell they are happy to work at Brook Bistro. The food was delicious and great value! Feels like a high end restaurant without the high end prices. We all really enjoyed ourselves and will definitely be returning again!

    What a lovely place. Staff very friendly. The food was lovely. We sat by the window on our reserved seat. It was a little cold though. The drinks (just coffee and a Diet Coke) were a little expensive. I have bought vouchers for a relative’s birthday, I was very impressed.

    Superb food & service, as usual, during our visit yesterday. The garlic mushroom brunch eggs were delicious & the portion size made it great value for money. My husband said his pork belly was the best he’d ever had & the onion rings were next level! My Bloody Mary was also spot on! Thanks to the Brook team & see you again soon.
