Squaremeal Review of Brinkley's Kitchen ?

A useful neighbourhood restaurant, where the prices are appealing, the cooking reliable and the wine list good value. There are occasional blips in service, which can be fretful and forgetful, and the background music is sometimes ‘brash’, but complaints are minor. Food is given more importance at Brinkley’s Kitchen than in other branches of this wine-bar and off-licence group. The chefs have an impressively broad repertoire, from homemade focaccia and goats’ cheese ravioli, to Thai green curry, via burgers and crab cakes. Although the wine isn’t as obviously inexpensive as at other Brinkley’s outlets, BK still offers very good deals, with a bottle of 2009 Jadot Mâcon-Villages costing a mere £15. Such value, together with well-priced set lunches, keeps the place busy during the day when many places in the vicinity are empty.

A really brilliant local restaurant. The food is outstanding – I tried a selection of starters which were all so fresh and delicious. The risotto, which in so many restaurants can be disappointing, was bursting with flavour – obviously a great stock is used and the tiny vegetables were perfectly al dente, as was the rice. My prawns wrapped in pancetta which I had spotted being prepared in the open plan kitchen, were amazing. The service and the atmosphere was really good, and although I didn't have...

I highly recommend Brinkleys Kitchen for lunch and went there last Friday with two friends. We had 5 starters between the three of us, which were all delicious especially the ravioli. The service was really good, attentive and polite and it was a great experience all round.

Locals love this easy-going diner which serves fresh uncomplicated food to a good standard with well chosen, mainly classic wines at low margins. Food won’t blow the mind but most patrons are there for the occasion and the banter rather than some gastronomic pilgrimage. So, for us, it was squid served with peppery rocket and a tricolere salad that was a study in milky freshness – both to a good standard. For mains seabass hit the right note too, as did a steak served precisely as ordered – all washed...

We had Sunday lunch here recently. The service was fine and the atmosphere was friendly although the music was slightly loud and unnecessarily brash. The meat (beef in this case) was beautifully tasty and lean (but not too much so). The vegetables were perfect and the yorkshire pudding was adequate. The wine was good value also. The greatest disappointment, as is the case in so many places, was the unimaginative dessert menu – I chose the creme brulee which was as bland as the menu. Overall, we enjoyed...
