“Excellant food & fabulous location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

Fabulous food sold here and in the evening, the restaurant sells wonderful fish, crab, lobster, all caught locally. Along with the steaks and other non-fish mains you are spoilt for choice and all are very reasonably priced. You can bring your own wine beer too! The only thing I would suggest is that the owner updates the loos. They are painfully old-fashioned and gives the wrong impression to an otherwise wonderful restaurant. I always book and I am looking forward to my next visit - which is soon - very much.

“Wonderful place to relax!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014

Well, popped in here for dinner after seeing live music advertised at the Swanage Blues Festival. So pleased with the table, service and food. The best steak I have eaten in a long time. The staff are friendly and the food is delicious. Thoroughly recommended. Give the steak a try!!

“Poor attitude of staff”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014

Went with friends today young female waitress showed us to table which had reserve sign on which she said was fine . Male assumed was manager came over to tell us we couldn't sit there.
He was very rude and unhelpful. Other customers commented on his rudeness as we left .
Ate across the road at the Quay Side for half the price

“Rude manager”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014

We went into this restaurant for lunch and were seated at a table that had a reserved sign on it by the waitress. We assumed she knew what she was doing. Whilst ordering food the manager (I presume that is who it was) was extremely rude and said that we could not sit there as it was reserved. His attitude was appalling to paying customers. Effectively we were thrown out!
After eating somewhere else we realised also how overpriced this place is.
Would not recommend at all and will never go back.

“Fabulous breakfasts served with a smile!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2014

Great breakfast, excellent, friendly service from the staff, fab location! I often indulge in a fried breaky, and Brook Tea Rooms has become a firm favourite - the food is delicious, just the right amount is served, and the price is good.
