Have been to Brinkleys twice on business visits to London. Wine list is extensive and varied.....good. Food is tasty and reasonably priced..... good. Atmosphere, lively and interesting .....good. Compulsory 12.5% service charge on drinks and food, not good! I prefer to tip as I see fit, not have it as a demand! I cannot understand why the management would want to alienate their customers with such a horrible bully-boy tactic of imposing a service charge whether people like it or not, regardless of the service that has been provided, which in my case, was abysmal.
