Soup Dragon left this review about Brookhill

This is a detached pub, which once had its own bowling green. It is a 1930s mock-Tudor brick and stone pub, built on a former sandpit and allotment. The pub is curved and has copious moulded stone around the door and windows. Interesting features include the two oriel windows, a central pediment with finial, the brick chimney stacks and the central moulded doorway. The interior has a nesting of rooms. You enter a large bar room, with green bench seats. It is in red and cream, with a red tile floor and fairly impressive red beamed ceiling. There is an impressive wood serving bar. Off to the left, is a small irregular shaped room in white and wood. It had a bunch of blokes in, playing dominoes. Off to the right is another irregular shaped room that is in red and cream, which has wood bench seating and has a pool table and dart board. There is a TV in the main room which had general programmes on, there was no music and a few old photos were on the walls - although it felt a little bare. The service was fine and a few regulars seemed to be in. Beer; no real ale, just the usual tap drinks with a decent enough M&B MILD. A nicer pub than I expected - it would have been good to see in its heyday. Happy I had a swifty.
