Confusing menu and poor service, eg: preferred starter (salmon) was not available, and when I asked what 'golden cross' was, I was told it was beetroot when it is actually goats cheese. Main course of shepherds pie, served in a ceramic dish, was scaldingly hot and overcooked - the portion was very small. Second choice of starter, prawn cocktail was good. Serving of red cabbage was tiny and of carrots enormous- both tasted very nice but we wont be going back. Visited The Brigade on 2018-01-11

We went to The Brigade for our Christmas work dinner and it was thoroughly enjoyable.! The food was good, the service even better. The Bistro area was thriving. We had a private room in the restaurant area and it was perfect for us. Thank you Nicholas and team for an enjoyable evening. Keep up the good work! Visited The Brigade on 2017-12-15

9 of us ate at the Bridge this week and had the Chef's Library for our dinner. What a treat we had in store, the room both lovely and stylish; the food was delicious and the service extremely good. I've been here a few times but none of my guests had been here before and all agreed they would readily return! Well done and thank you, it was a great way to start the Christmas festivities.

Participants from our group said that the food was delicious. The service was ok but not great. We had to place a pre-order menu two days before (not ideal, especially if we had international guests with busy schedules who could not book on time). There was some confusion with the email sent and some orders were not correct. The bill came with lots of mistakes, including various dishes that we never had on the table. After talking to the manager the issue was resolved. In general we had a good experience but the place and services did not surprise us. Visited The Brigade on 2017-11-30

Reply from The Brigade

Thank you for your feedback and we apologize for the incorrect pre-order. We are happy however that you enjoyed the event. All points will be reviewed and improved for the future. All the best.

I must commend Genesis Santos for her help in arranging the event. She was most helpful. We used the Wine Gallery which suited our requirements. The service was ok. However I must remark that the potatoes were hard and dry and I had to ask for gravy to go with them to give them some moisture. Also the food could have been a little warmer. So given the price of the food this could have been improved. That said, part from that we had a pleasant evening. Visited The Brigade on 2017-12-11

Reply from The Brigade

Hi there - I have passed on the feedback to Genesis :) In terms of your food, we apologize that it was not up to the standard expected however we are happy that you still enjoyed your event.Thank you for taking your time to review us and we will take your points into consideration and look to improve!

We hosted a drinks reception and then a dinner for a smallish group (less than 10) on a busy mid-week night. our party was very well served from start to finish, with drinks, meals and seating exactly as we'd asked. Everyone spoke well of their food, and the wine went down well too! I will definitely be back soon. Visited The Brigade on 2017-12-05

We arrived for breakfast at 7:30am. We were told it didn't open till 8am. The Website and bookings said differently otherwise we wouldn't have been able to book a table for 7:30. We were asked to wait at the door till opening. The breakfast for 4 people took 50 minutes to arrive, and we were the only customers in the venue, more chefs/cooks than customers. The breakfast was warm not hot in the slightest. Also we needed to ask for more coffee and water which I forgot should have been included in the price due to seating more than one person for breakfast. Totally forgot until now which has annoyed me even more as we paid full price. One of our party waited a further 5 minutes as her avocado and toast took longer than a full cooked breakfast? The waiter was slow and we could not seem to find or grab his attention to ask for the bill, once it arrived we paid cash and left it on the table due to the waiter not returning with a card reader. I have had the full breakfast and cold pastry deal for £10 including drinks and refills before which was great value and service then. I don't know what has happened but it was not the same, maybe this is why it was empty when previous visits have been busy with customers. Based on the cost and service I will not be taking colleagues or clients here again. Visited The Brigade on 2017-12-01

Hi - thank you for for your feedback. I'm sorry to hear that your experience was not very good. We have taken into consideration all your points and will review this with the team who worked that day. Our sincere apologies for the breakfast and we hope you'll give us another chance. All the best, the Brigade Team

Pleasant modern venue. Service was good and very welcoming. The menu had some adventurous choices. The quality of the food and presentation was good but not special. Although not overpriced, it wasn't a cheap meal so I'm not sure i would rush back. Visited The Brigade on 2017-11-27

The Brigade is conveniently located under 10 mins walk away from the Bridge Theatre - so ideal for a pre-theatre dinner. My friend loved the food - she had a soup, pearl barley risotto and bread & butter pudding. My foraged mushrooms on sourdough were delicious. Excellent service, nice surroundings, and there are a few private dining/meeting rooms. Superb place. We will be back! Visited The Brigade on 2017-11-22

Great service and food, our guests enjoyed themselves very much. The only comments would be that perhaps an extra member serving the food would have made everything a bit smoother. There seemed to be some slight confusion over who was having what - I was under the impression that all the team knew the menu choices. Some of our guests go to lots of dinners and often cannot remember what they have ordered for each! All the guests were complimentary about the food and the surroundings, so in general it was a very successful night. Thanks hugely to Genesis who organised this for us - she was brilliant.
