We have dined for lunch several times at the Brougham Arms and we have not been disappointed. We travel one and half hours away so we know that we can rely on the Brougham to serve good food, good service and always friendly. My only recommendation would be to have a menu change - we are starting to eat the same meal!

Had lunch here on a Sunday and it was great, really busy but the space was nice and open and the noise levels were good even with families with children in there. A great friendly pub for all to enjoy with an outstanding menu!! We will definitely be back soon.

All 5 of us enjoyed very nice meals (Gnochi, Black Angus Steak, Barramundi and Parma. Great that you kept my favourite type of beer (IPA), two brands available and I tried them both. Preferred the waiters recommended BentSpoke from Canberra.

Never had a bad meal here. Meals are served quickly, fresh and hot. Service attendants could use some training in wine/food pairings but are friendly and accommodating.

The sauce for the barramundi was way too sweet and watery. Cannot see how this won dish of the year? One of the worst wine lists I've seen. NV white and red from Rothbury...really??? You guys need to step up.

Good honest food. Ambience with covid restrictions was a little industrial and cant be helped. Perhaps some potted plants to make it feel cozier?
Top notch service and timely food. Had a great birthday celebration.
