Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Read reviews, decided to go for brunch. Ordered 1 breakfast 2 Vegetarian breakfasts. Server very helpful. I ordered extra toast,which never arrived. If they used pen and paper instead of these electronic devices to take an order, mistakes would not occur. As I was with...my wife and daughter I didn't want to make a scene. The original "toast" was a slice of French stick,not proper toast. Bill came,we were charged £1-50,and £3-00,for "Extras". What "Extras"? They certainly didn't arrive on our plates. Won't be back.More

Allot of other choices for those not a fan of Sunday lunches (girlfriend had the burger) which again was delicious. The hot...chocolate and salted caramel dessert was outstanding!

A great neighbourhood restaurant. The food was of a good standard and the staff were lovely. It gets very busy and there were quite a few larger birthday celebrations taking place, there was a great atmosphere though it would have been quite noisy if we...had wanted a romantic evening.More

We've been to the bistro a few times but it is evident that standards are very inconsistent. One meal came without the ingredients as described yet other customers seemed to be getting as described. A warm dessert was served cold and had to be heated...up on request. The portions also seemed to vary in size. Overall it's a pleasant enough place to dine but it needs to ensure that standards are consistent.More

We visited Brook Bistro for Sunday Lunch recently and we all had a lovely time. The Sunday menu was extensive with lots of meat dishes and something for vegetarians and vegans. I couldn't see any fish dishes which was a slight disappointment. There's a great...selection of drinks available including lagers and ciders that are not readily available. It should also be mentioned that the staff are really smartly dressed which is impressive and even the toilets are in pristine condition. The 2 course Sunday Lunch was £25.95 which was reasonable given the quality available but £20 for a Halloumi Burger was a bit much.More
