The dining room is charming and although there was not a great variety to choose from the menu it was sufficient and the food was delicious.

We decided to dine at the motel restaurant, and what a great choice. The young girls serving were a delight, the food was great, large serves of very reasonably priced dishes. The buffet breakfast in the restaurant equalled our dinner experience

overpriced, totally over rated. Far better eating experiences nearby at a fraction of the cost. cold food, awkward service, pretending to be, but a shallow experience.

On arrival a waiter greeted the group with a complimentary drink, very classy touch as it meant that you could meet, greet and network immediately. No standing at the bar. Guests mingled in an anti-room before moving into the dining area. The event that I...More

The historic Victorian-style homestead on Tanti Ave in Mornington has sported many different looks over the past century, and new owners are breathing new life into this stunning property. To delightfully contrast with its old-world charm, Brooklands of Mornington has opened Brooks Restaurant and Bar, cooking up a storm with a modern and relaxed feel. Guests can choose from the restaurant’s casual menu, including such classics as beer-battered fish & chips and free range chicken breast parma, while the á la carte menu has a range of delicious steak and pasta dishes, not to mention desserts to die for. Private dining rooms are available for groups of 8 – 30 guests. In addition, Brooks Restaurant and Bar offers great coffee and light snacks from 7:00am – 4:00pm.
