The Bent Brook
Reviewed by Brian Grehan
We decided to go out for a family meal but wanted somewhere with plenty of choice that was inexpensive. The Bent Brook definitely ticked all those boxes. Upon arrival our order was quickly taken at the bar by a friendly member of staff. We sat and enjoyed our drinks and were pleasantly surprised that the starter of beef chilli nachos arrived within a few minutes. The nachos were plentiful and tasty. Staff were efficient in checking that all was ok with our food. The dishes were promptly cleared away in between courses. The first thing I noticed about all the main course dishes was how generous the portions were. The adults chose mixed grill and rump steak and the child in our party was delighted to make up her own meal from pic and mix options. Staff added cheese to the burger in the child’s meal with no problems at all. Despite the establishment being quite busy the service level was great at all the tables around us. The steaks were tasty and cooked to perfection and really good value. The child in our party devoured her meal leaving very little on her plate. Once again our plates were cleared quickly and our desserts came out. There was a minor issue with one of the desserts which the Manager sorted out immediately and was so lovely about it.
The toilet facilities were immaculate and clearly cleaned on a regular basis. We have eaten at the Bent Brook before and this has always been the case. I am keen to go back and take part in their quiz night. We would not hesitate to eat there as a family again. There are even great value and wholesome baby meals on the menu which is useful to know as we have twin baby boys.
In summary, The Bent Brook is a clean, friendly establishment which is ideal for a family treat or special occasion. They have lots going on including a fantastic pub quiz and Big Deals every day of the week including kids eat for £1 and 2 Sunday roasts for £10. The food is top quality and excellent value.
