We chose to visit The Brickmakers because of its excellent reviews and wasn’t disappointed. The service was outstanding and the food unbelievably good. The pork belly was quite literally one of the best dishes I’ve ever had. The haggis starter was a surprise star as well.
As requested, we sat at a table in the corner, by the window at the front of the restaurant. Unfortunately, there was an unpleasant smell at this table. We spoke to the staff about it and they were aware. Otherwise the visit was a good experience all round.
Food 10/10 as always great service the best place for miles
Great food, good beer and fabulous service. We’ll visit again.
My wife and I had an excellent day celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary. An indication of how popular this place is; we had to park at the very rear of the over-spill back garden parking almost into Sunningdale golf course, and we enjoyed the walk through the gardens to get a drink. It's nice to be recognized when arriving at any venue, and we were promptly shown to our table with two glasses of champagne. We both opted for similiar meals from the comprehensive menu and started with half pint of shrimp and crab cocktail. They were literally in a half pint beer glass full of crustaceans with a light fresh zingy sauce without a hint of tomato ketchup, accompanied by three perfectly toasted baguette rounds. We had selected two glasses of Provence Rose for this first course, that was fresh and earthy, and perfectly chilled. Our mains were two smokey cooked fillet steaks and golden chips cooked in goose fat. I have an aversion to balsamic vinegar, and now as a precaution, I always order food with the proviso that, however unlikely, no BV comes anywhere near my plate. This was fortuitous as my wife's salad dressing was hiding a sneaky drizzle of the dreaded dressing that chefs love so much. To me, BV is a cross of two things that I love; Marmite and honey. But I wouldn't dream of mixing the two together. To go with the mains we selected a delicious Pinot Noir at very reasonable price. Neither of us had the room or fancied a sweet course so we went for a shared platter of British cheeses, and were mightly impressed with the offers from the counties of England, particularly the blue from Oxfordshire. A full tasting stilton competitor but slightly moist rather than the artery clogging oozyness of the full Leicestershire. What made it even more yummy was that the cheese course was 'on the house' for which I again thank the hosts Scott and Alex for a lovely lunch.
Thank you so much to all the staff at The Brickmakers especially Jessica who looked after us at our table, you all made my daughters 6th birthday meal very special on Sunday 6th January. We had never been before, nothing was a bother for them including looking after the birthday cake and they even put a birthday girl balloon on my daughters seat at the table. The food was fantastic, very well priced and myself and the family happily spent 3 hours drinking and eating away. Would definitely recommend The Brickmakers to anyone and will now frequently stop by when visiting family in Hampshire. Brilliant A+++
The Brickmakers has always been one of our favourite places to eat but after this evening it has sadly been knocked off its perch. Scott and Alex who used to run it very successfully have only been gone for about three weeks and it has slipped. The food was fine but the service and pleasant atmosphere have vanished. We were served by three different people - not so much as a smile out of any of them and I think one was the new manager. No checking if we wanted any more drinks, if we’d enjoyed our food, and no choccies at the end which Scott used to give out with the bill. All sounds petty stuff but if I’d taken over a highly successful restaurant I wouldn’t have changed a thing. Sadly not the same vibe it used to have so we probably won’t return. Others must be feeling the same already as there were quite a few empty tables. Previously it would have been full.
I love The Brickmakers, it’s fantastic food, wine is reasonably priced and it’s got a great ambience. We went on a Monday lunch time and there were plenty of people there. That says a lot about a place.! Would highly recommend, but I don’t want it to get so popular that I can’t book a table 😄. Great walking around too if you want to walk off your lunch.
The staff are always cheerful and very willing to ensure that the customer is happy. The food arrives quickly, and is delicious. Surroundings are exceptionally clean and convivial. The style is informal, thoughtful, but not intrusive. The Brickmakers' gets top marks every time we go. We're regulars and they make us feel like we're part of their family too.
Along with many, many people The Brickies is for me, my family and friends our first choice when going out for a meal locally. A varied menu that suites us with excellent food, good quality and decently priced. A good and not expensive wine list. The atmosphere is good and relaxing with knowledgeable staff who obviously want to be a part of The Brickies but are never intrusive. Scott and Alex have set out their stall to perfection. They with their Chef have obviously gone out to find the best suppliers to give consistent sourcing. Do have a good appetite when lunching or dining! Am spreading the word with friends and winning. Best, Ian Worrall
