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 any wine (must be a first) the list is fantastic and extremely reasonable. A visit to Brinkley's Kitchen is essential – forget Chez Bruce, you'll eat just as well here.
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 down with good value 2005 Premier Cru Chablis and a minty, nicely structured Cabernet from the Great Southern in Western Australia. For locals the walk home adds to the whole appeal. Nice private room at the back.
