Looking forward to 2020 at The Brook Inn


Welcome to our local!
As most of our regular customers know, The Brook Inn is a community pub, owned by friends, regulars and villagers of Washbrook, Copdock and surrounding villages who put up the money to buy the pub to keep a community asset alive.

Since our family came to Washbrook in August 2018, as the new tenants for this lovely village pub, we have worked very hard to offer customers good, tasty food, which is reasonably priced and with lots of choice on the menu to tempt you. We offer a Gluten Free menu option for virtually everything we cook, and as well as the main menu and super dessert selection, we offer all the pub classic favourites, including our renowned Gluten Free Fish and Chips and on Sundays, our delicious Gluten Free Sunday lunch roast with all the trimmings. Our very popular Specials Board offers a range of tasty alternatives to the pub classics and we change this regularly to keep your taste buds entertained. We have dining options for vegetarians and vegans and are happy to accommodate other special dietary requirements wherever possible on request.

We haven’t just been focusing on the food either – our real ale selection features Adnams Southwold bitter and Adnams Ghost Ship, along with some brilliant guest ales – recently featured ales have included Woodfordes Wherry, Woodfordes Nelson, Calvors Amarillo, Adnams Broadside, Adnams Old Ale, Adnams Freewheel, Maldons Silver Adder, Greene King Yardbird and Old Golden Hen. We also offer the premium Bavarian Hell Lager, along with 2 other lager choices and a new addition to our cider range is the Forest Berries Skal to accompany our Aspalls popular cider.

A huge thank-you to all our regulars and to the many, many new friends and visitors who have joined us to try our food and ales. We hope to keep you coming back to try our lovely food and great beer and we launch the new 2020 menu at the beginning of February – check the menu pages on the website for more details.
