You have such a wonderful team - always make us feel like royalty (we’ve certainly had some great parties and dinners with you over the last few years) and just to top it off , a few weeks ago ? we had the best Sunday lunch we’ve ever had in the area (easily as good as if not better than Chez Bruce) in the last 5 years!!
Your guys just keep getting better and better so please give them a massive thanks from us!’

We are a regular here for dinner and always enjoy the food and the service. Tried it for brunch for the first time (with two kids) and it did not disappoint. Service and food was great. Very relaxed and kid friendly yet still retaining the smart atmosphere. Brunch and lunch options spot on.

We had a lovely evening here but be warned with thai green curry. I was told it wasn't spicy.....I practically needed a fire extinguisher! I soldiered through, when I eventually mentioned it to the waitress she was hugely apologetic, offered me something else but I'd almost finished. They brought me some Chutney which helped a lot. Great service, and the food was in fact very good. Calamari starters, husband had calfs liver which he said was excellent. Would definitely go again.

We came to Brinkleys Kitchen because it had been recommended by a number of friends. I was somewhat disappointed therefore when I had to send back my calf’s liver for being almost charred on one side. The 2nd effort was much better. To compensate I was offered a drink which my partner took advantage of as I was driving. It won’t put me off trying it once more but overall it was a very ordinary experience.

The food was not good at all. I ordered the breaded veal with Parmesan mash and creamed spinach, with tomatoes. I have been to this restaurant many times over the years and this dish was always one of my favourites, with a succulent crispy escalope and tomatoes en branches and delicious potatoes. This time a dried up clearly pre-cooked piece of leathery meat, pre- cooked tomatoe halves completely dried out, tasteless spinach and no hint of Parmesan in the potatoes. Although I was asked if I would like something else, I declined, and the £22 still appeared on the bill. A big disappointment.

We had a lovely evening with friends. The food choice was good but the menu didn't seem much different to when I last came (except no Gyoza's ) Our table was in the back room and it was very dark - so much so that we needed to use the lights on our mobiles to read the menu.
I also ordered the roast cod and was advised I did not need to order any extra vegetables. However, it only came with crushed potatoes and a sprinkling of samphire so I wished I had actually ordered extra.

We have visited this Brinkleys for years, and I was hugely disappointed this time. The menu has changed recently and nothing on the menu really got me excited or whet my appetite.
Good service, very friendly staff. Atmosphere was dull as it was half term so very quiet.
Really disappointed and won’t be returning in a hurry, sorry!

The starter and dessert were very poor. The main course was the best course. The lighting in the restaurant and bar is lovely and creates a relaxing atmosphere. The wine list is good but the food leaves a lot to be desired.
