New bar and bistro opens this week
The new bar and bistro at Dudley Town Hall will be officially opened by the borough’s first citizen tomorrow (Sep 22), with bookings now being taken for the opening weekend.
Councillor Sue Greenaway, the Mayor of Dudley, will cut the ribbon at Brooke’s Bar and Bistro.
Customers are being offered 20 per cent off lunchtime food and drink between 11.30am and 5pm from Thursday to Sunday.

Councillor Sue Greenaway, the Mayor of Dudley, said:
The new bar and bistro will be a very important addition to the offer at Dudley Town Hall, offering pre-show food and drink for people going there to watch live entertainment.
It will also be open throughout the week apart from Mondays, so will be available to a much wider audience.
I’m very excited to be attending the official opening and I can’t wait to see how it looks.
The bistro will be open from 11.30am to 11pm Tuesday to Saturday – with last food orders at 9pm – and from 11.30am to 9pm on Sunday (last food orders 7pm).
It has been named in honour of Brooke Robinson, a former MP and coroner for Dudley who was an avid collector of paintings and artefacts from around the world.
On his death in 1911 he left a large sum of money to create the Brooke Robinson Museum to house his vast collection.
His widow and The Brooke Robinson Board of Trustees agreed the money should be used to build a new town hall and coroner’s court with the Brooke Robinson Museum included. Dudley Town Hall opened in 1928 and the Brooke Robinson Museum in 1931.
Brooke’s Bar and Bistro will be accessed off Priory Street using the Memorial Tower entrance.
The Brooke Robinson collection was moved into Dudley Museum and Art Gallery in 1979 and is now housed on the first floor at Himley Hall and will be available to view in the coming weeks.
