First visit and not really a fan of these chain pubs. But the food was actually good. The staff were friendly and very busy but had to wait a little to long for drinks to be brought to the table which was unfortunate. I would definitely go again and would recommend it.

Great to be back after lockdown was eased. Continues to follow social distancing, bookings required and well spaced out or with screens between tables. A brilliant little local pub!

Hi Sarah thanks for taking time out to review us. We are so pleased to welcome you back inside and away from the poor weather that we are experiencing at the moment. We are very aware that standards have to be maintained throughout these time when covid is still such a threat, and I expect that will be the case for quite some time. Hope to see you again soon but in the meantime, stay safe. Kind regards Karen and team

My partner and I have been here 3 times over the last month and it is such an amazing place. The staff are amazing I didnt catch her name but after our second visit she remembered who we were and was able to have a conversation with us which made it even more friendly and a lovely place to be. They are handling the current pandemic so professionally too, no concerns about distance and being too crowded. The food is absolutely amazing! First time I've had a steak cooked to my actual liking in years. Whether its a family meal, date night or catch up with friends this is the place to go!

Hello ElliemL97 Wow thank you so much for this awesome review! I was so pleased to read it and pass it on to my team. I, like you, I'm sure, can't wait for this terrible time to pass and for us to have a more normal way of life. But until then you can be reassured The Brinkburn will carry on regardless, one way or another so I hope to to see you again soon. In the meantime, stay safe. Kind regards Karen and Team
