The staff were excellent and the food very good with lots of choice. Poached pear was enormous but Easton mess looked the best.

I apologise that you did not enjoy your steak and if you had informed us at the time we would have replaced this immediately. Our “Filo basket” is a very popular vegetarian... More

Back at this hotel on the Dinner, Bed and Breakfast package and have to say it just keeps getting better! I'm a pretty fussy diner - not in terms of what I eat but the quality of the food, the way it's cooked, presented and served. And I've eaten in some pretty awesome restaurants over the years.

Description
Brassiere Brunel – casual dining in a French style brasserie setting with a menu to match,Our newly refurbished restaurant is located in the lovely Grade II listed building designed by the famous architect Isambard Kingdom Brunel and we have named our new dining venue in tribute to this famous designer.The decor and furnishings have been modelled on a traditional Parisian brasserie and the menu features a number of French specialities together with grills, including steaks, for which we are renowned. Wherever possible our food is sourced locally including our steaks from the highly respected Church Farms and the majority of dishes are freshly produced by a first class team of cooks. The menu represents excellent value for money and in addition to the extensive range of very competitively priced a la carte dishes we also offer two fixed price menu options namely, £9.95 for 2 courses and £12.95 for 3 courses.
