This restaurant is run by Brooke's university catering students we understand. The food was great with a good spread of meat, fish and vegetarian options. Our starters and main were all delicious and well presented. They forgot to bring us the bread which was listed in our menu and when reminded of this we were told that it was not... More

This was my first time in Brookes Restaurant. The Christmas lunch is marvelous. Presentation is good, service is good, food is good. The turkey is just nicely cooked and the chocolate torte is extremely good. Clementine ice cream is a very creative dessert, however the ice cream quality could be improved. We had a great time in here. Everything is... More

We decided to have the three course meal option and couldn't decide what to choose. We both ended up having the restaurant's special of the day which was Hake wrapped in Parma ham. The flavours all complemented each other extremely well, especially when paired with the Levin Sauvignon/Chardonnay blend. Pudding was hands down the best Sticky Toffee Pudding I have... More

This was my first experience in this restaurant and it was a success. We had a warm welcoming and a very attentive service. I had the tasty Fish cake for stater and then the Gressingham duck which was served with a nice Gratin dauphinois. I really enjoyed the Sticky toffee pudding for dessert. The waitresses were smiling throughout the service... More

We planned for the 2 course option but as we couldn't decide on the choices for a starter or dessert went for the 3 courses, and the Sticky toffee pud was to die for. Excellent meal, well served and cooked by 1st year students. Wasn't silver service but only 7 weeks into their course they did really well. I don't... More

I have worked in Oxford just around the corner from Brookes restaurant for 3 and a half years without even knowing it was there until it was recently recommended by a colleague for a 40th birthday lunch. The presentation with little caramelised sugar swirl decoration on the desserts and the delicate flavours in all of the courses were really something... More
