I took my boys there after school one weekday. Despite the restaurant being empty the service was appallingly slow. The food is just frozen and completely overpriced. My boys ordered hit dogs which were tasteless. The only tasty thing was the milkshakes.

What can I say? Local restaurant that just chucks a load of frozen food in a deep fat frier. My son and friend had a "mini dawg" each - served on buns with green mould very obvious on the outside of the bun. Obviously I sent these straight back, but not a good sign, we should have walked out then.... More

Went here as a last minute resort. And was actually pleased with the Wings and ribs that we got. The ribs were slightly cold bu the meat was coming of nicely. The wings were like buffalo wings that you would get in other restaurants. I would come back as it is local and easy. Next time i want to try... More

A great little diner with a classic decor, nice food and great shakes. It's just a shame that the service is so slow. Three of us popped in for what we thought would be a quick lunch, we thought wrong. They didn't seem to have enough staff on to clear the tables so the place seemed a little dirty when... More

The meal as expected was burgers and ribs mainly. All the ribs and burgers we ordered were cooked to perfection and were most filling. We did not order starters and glad we did not as with the main it would have been too much. The brave members of our group went for the triple burger, try eating that by holding... More

This would be my fourth visit here, the last being about 2 years ago. Went with my bf and niece (37, 13). We all loved the milkshakes (Oreo, Vanilla and Peanut Butter). My bf's jacket potato was ok; the tuna was really nice with red pepper and red onion although they forgot his sweetcorn. I vividly remembered the garlic cheesy... More

Had a really lovely evening with friends at Brooks Diner. Vast menu, not too expensive, good price and very generous portions.

Visited a couple of months ago, walked in to a women shouting at the waiter for refund for uncooked chips obviously to late to walk out. We ordered wings and the burger. Wings didn't taste fresh, just slapped on franks sauce all over. The burger wasn't presented well and also tasted frozen out of a pack. The chips were surprisingly... More

Been here a few times food is really good recommend there hot and spicy chicken wings really good, and great selection of Burgers. Only critical thing is the service, They take ages to bring your food out and also take your order. if they done this would be 5* for me.

I go to Brooke's regularly due to their amazing burgers. The menu is extensive and their ribs are also delicious. Service is hit and miss, it used to be excellent but have found it to be worse in the last few months , with slow unprofessional service. Highly recommend the Oreo milkshakes and bacon cheeseburgers.
