Excellent pizzas but this time we had fillet steak kebabs and rack of ribs which were very good. A frozen mojito was a pleasant end to the meal.

We ate in Brodies twice during our week stay in Almadena and would highly recommend it! The owners are so friendly and made us feel right at home! Really enjoyed the food and very reasonably priced!

Great food, great company and a fantastic night out. It's a must. Wide selection of local and imported beers and huge menu with loads of daily specials. I loved it.

well I'd review the food if I could .. but we turned up at 8.30pm and asked if it was ok if we could sit and eat in the Beer Garden with our little dog .. the surly reply was 'yes you can - but you can't have food - we're fully booked and we've got no food' well ...... More

We do regret that we could not accommodate you with a table due to being fully booked, at this time of year it is advisable to make a reservation. There was a "Fully Booked" sign at the front door where you entered and when we are this busy we cannot offer dining in the beer garden as the wait for... More

The people are friendly and treated us well. However, it was disappointing to discover that spicy prawns meant mostly spicy prawn heads and about four small edible tails. This appears to be policy rather than bad luck as both diners had exactly the same experience.

My partner and I are staying in this village with my family and as it was my birthday we ventured out as a couple to the local square and then on to Broadies. We could have brought the whole family and our little boy as they had high chairs and were very friendly! The food was very nice, we sat... More

The Pizza we had was amazing. My dad had fish and chips which was delicious and my step mum had a steak which was cooked to perfection. Very friendly staff and couldn't do more to help. Cant wait to go back again. A must visit.

Brodies has a prime location. For years we've driven past but never stopped but one evening we couldn't get into a restaurant so we dropped in. We arrived to a (nearly) empty restaurant and ordered out food. I would compare the food to 'pub grub' similar to that of a large pub chain in the UK. The onion rings were... More
