Brook is a small village in Surrey. It is located to the west of Sandhills, and is on the main road between Milford and Haslemere.

There is a cricket ground with a community hall called The Pirrie Hall, and a pub called the Dog and Pheasant.

The Pirrie Hall dates from May 1923. It was built and given to the community by Lord Pirrie K.P. “for the use and benefit of the inhabitants of the hamlets of Brook, Sandhills and adjoining district”. The ongoing maintenance of the hall is now financed in part by a community association organising annual events (like the May Bank Holiday Brook Fete) and other annual events.

The Brook Fete (last May Bank Holiday) is a traditional country fête, attended by thousands of the local community each May Bank Holiday, and features: Dog show, Children's attractions, a variety of farmers market attractions, country auction, prize draw, food and drink tents, antique cars, and much more under a generally sunny May sky.
