Visited the Brook Inn today for our team Christmas lunch. As always the welcome was warm and friendly: the food excellent and the staff courteous. On top of this it is superb value for money and the ambience delightful, especially with all the Christmas decorations....More

Coping with around 40 exhuberant Plympton Chamber members is no mean feat, but John and his team coped fabulously. The meal was wholesome and delivered by John and team v promptly. As always very tasty and a great atmosphere

We don't do takeaway on a regular basis but we do have some regulars who order food in advance and come and collect it. Well always help whenever we are able. :-)

Description
The Brook Inn changed hands on 7th April 2014. It's a family and dog-friendly pub just three minutes from the A38 and 10 minutes from Plymouth city centre, set in the picturesque village of Plympton St Maurice. The aim is to provide a variety of dishes on the menu, using local suppliers as much as possible. The pub prides itself on its support for live and local music, and also hosts lots of other activities like quiz nights, Tai Chi, line-dancing, watercolour art lessons, Murder Mystery nights (to name but a few). The Brook, at the heart of the community, is also an ideal venue to hold coffee mornings, meetings and charity events. It's "more than just a pub".
