We decided to have a lunch at the Brigham which had been recommended. The gardens at the restaurant are gorgeous and makes a pleasant place to sit and eat. The menu was fairly decent and thankfully freshly made and not out a cabinet. The food was tasty but the portions were way too small and most of us out for... More

31 to celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversary. Scrumptious buffet luncheon with everything we asked for. There is a choice of buffet menus and prices. The tables were set up divinely with white cloths draped with golden runners and beautiful flower arrangements. This we had not requested so was a wonderful surprise. Raj and his team of waitresses led by the... More

We were looking for a Cafe nearby and came across The Brigham. Great, this was completely worth it. It was just a simple Brunch and Coffee with the family. Children loved the grounds and running around in the open spaces. The staff and the Manager/ owner were very accomodating to our needs. The vege breakfast was a lovely choice. Food... More

Nothing was made from scratch it was just supermarket savories overheated and boring club sandwiches followed by some baking out of the packet.definitely not worth the money... There plenty of other places that can do... More
