Reviews

We came here for a relaxed family dinner with our two young children and were very impressed. We were greeted by a very friendly staff member who gave us a choice of where to sit, we chose to go upstairs. Up here there were toys for the kids to play with as well as old arcade games which were very fun! Our waitress Alison was lovely and very helpful. I ordered the ribeye which was huge and beautifully cooked, the fries were lovely too. My husband ordered the beef burger which was also an extremely generous size and he said it was delicious. The children shared the cheeseburger meal from the kids menu which they happily demolished. For dessert we shared the chocolate cake which was moist and very rich but a nice way to finish off our meal. All of our food came out within reasonable time and Alison was attentive throughout our time there without being in our space too much. We loved the food and also the relaxed atmosphere. We will definitely return for the great food, friendly staff and awesome relaxed family friendly environment!

From the time Jules greeted us, the meal and service were great. Jess gave us very good recommendations in regard to the meal options and it was so good to get a ribeye cooked to perfection, medium rare as requested and the Blue cod was perfection.
The garlic bread starter and accompanying main dish salads and chips were A1 and served in very generous quantities.
Based on the experience, both of us have been recommending to others and look forward to our next meal at The Brook.

A real delight from start to finish. Very attentive and friendly staff, incredibly satisfying food, and a nice quiet atmosphere for talking. I can't wait to go back.

I had the salmon with my chosen sides of coleslaw and mashed potato and it went together so well. The salty richness of the salmon with the creamy coleslaw and melt-in-your-mouth mashed potato was glorious.

My companion had the steak on the bone with chips and coleslaw as his chosen sides and he was similarly impressed.

The kids fish and chips also went down well. The fish seemed like good quality.

And to top it off, an Emersons Pilsner on tap. Mmmm.

We followed with a great coffee, and an Eatons Mess to share which was full of berries and really beautifully presented.

Really good family restaurant, our waitress was great with kids. Only small complaint would be that I ordered fish, mash and veges and received fish, chips and salad. Otherwise, good priced family meal.

Had a delightful time at The Brook. Food was delicious, my steak was the best I had for years. Children really enjoyed their meals
There was no room for desserts which looked apertising on the menu. Lovely friendly waiters who did an excellent job including taking photos for us. Well Done The Brook

The Special was Oysters so we decided to try 1/2 doz as an entree knowing there was no discount. The serving turned out to be small meal with chips and salad.
The one thing I forgot to ask was their origin, Bluff or Pacific. They were the least favoured Pacific oysters and a couple were quite gritty.

Great service and a mixed bag on the food kids fish and chips perfect, my steak was a solid effort although the mixed veg was really over cooked, and my wife's crispy skin salmon was really over cooked. Would go again but would stick to what they do best pub grub

We came in and were directed to a table they had set up by the fire for us (since it was rainy and freezing) our drinks order was taken quickly and returned to us in a prompt manner. The staff were excellent in answering our questions and even double checked things with the chefs. We ordered a garlic bread for starters and steak mains which were all cooked to perfection (a blue, a rare and a medium rare) and the meals were of a huge size that we all had left overs. One of my dining companions is a chef and he was highly impressed with the plating and flavour that the meals and entrees had. Would definitely recommend and we will be going back.

Not bad for a pub meal. The only criticism I have is the amount of salad on your plate, would be ok if you were a horse so a lot of wastage.

Really enjoyed our main meals and service. The only minor comment the dips would have been nicer if made fresh.

We ate at the Brook last night. Excellent service, we enjoyed asking each other the trivial pursuit questions that are in a little pile on each table. The Eton mess was outstanding!
