Welcome to Brick Farm Tavern, located on Double Brook Farm in Hopewell, NJ.

Our farm takes a genuine approach to sustainable farming; raising and pasturing our animals including pigs, sheep, chickens, turkeys, ducks and goats on 800 acres in the Hopewell Valley creating a truly authentic farm-to-table dining experience in an 1800s Hopewell farm house.

The bar features local craft beers, artisan cocktails & wine tastings with Troon Brewing and Sourland Mountain Spirits located right on the premises.

We invite you to join us and experience our dining and cocktail menus based upon the very best ingredients this region has to offer.

Food was amazing and fresh! All protein comes direct from their farm and while other foods come from local farms. Cocktails were great!

We had a great meal with good friends. We shared several starter dishes and all were very very good, but the lamb meatballs were outstanding. It took our group of seven people over three hours to be served and finish, which was a little slow. Don't get me wrong, I don't like to be rushed through a nice meal, but a little more attention from the servers would be appreciated. Needless to say we all loved the venue, the food, the atmosphere and will definitely return. I have already told several people about the evening and recommended your beautiful restaurant.

Dining at the Brick Farm Tavern was a very pleasant experience. Just be aware that a bridge is out on Rt. 518, but the restaurant kindly offers detailed detours on its web site. The serious approach to locally sourced and sustainable food is commendable. If its not available locally, it won't be on the menu. Everything we had was tasty and prepared to perfection. We'll definitely be returning in the future.

We had a wonderful experience the food, drinks, our waiter Simon was knowledgeable and fun we truly enjoyed him. As it was our first visit they sat us in the library Simon shared the layout of the property with us and even took us on a tour after our meal. Our food was amazing as were our drinks. Simon also offered us a tasting of the Troon beer so delicious! We look forward to coming back with our friends.

The concept of farm to table is wonderful. Place is very nice - service is good - food is very good but I expected more. Pastrami sandwich was great - croque madame was a bit disappointing

Good wine - cocktails looked terrific

I would go back and Order small plates/

While some menu items were good, fat was not trimmed away, fish over cooked. Waitress brought wrong beer order and then lied about it saying the owner calls their brews different than the rest of the world. Clearly poorly handled.

We are not strangers to BFT. It may be our favorite place around Princeton. But this past Saturday night we came to celebrate a birthday and had a good but not awesome experience. The music playing on the speakers was not conducive to an elegant evening and added to the already loud conversations in the room. The food was delicious, as usual, and while our server was delightful, everything was very slow. We waited an unusual amount of time between course. Everything just seemed a bit off...made us wonder if there was a problem in the kitchen.
We will certainly be back soon, but hope for a smoother experience next time.

The food and ambiance is always wonderful. Very fresh ingredients that are wonderfully prepared. Location and ambiance are perfect. Bridge on road leading to restaurant is closed so be prepared for detour. We called the restaurant to notify we would be a bit late due to detour and they promptly provided directions. We enjoyed our meal.

Brick Farm Tavern has become a favorite destination for special event dining. The food is consistently creative and of the highest quality; the service personal and impeccable; the atmosphere delightfully private in most instances; and the overall satisfaction consistently high. We will most certainly return!

My wife and I celebrated our 19th anniversary at Brick Farm Tavern on Sunday. We knew beforehand that the restaurant was a farm-to-table situation. While watching their sheep grazing in the back field, our waiter described the various livestock and crops they raised. What's more, the restaurant is part of a little community that also consists of Sourland Mountain Spirits and Troon Microbrewery.
If you're looking for the ultimate in locally sourced dining at a very reasonable price in "God's country", this is it.

We did the chefs menu 6 course meal. This was our 2nd time here. Last time we did an 8 course but the menu has changed. The waiter told us after we were finished they have an 8 course not mentioned on the menu (?) If we knew, we would've done it. It was a different chef than our 1st time & the food was good, but comparing to our first time not as special. I was disappointed that he didn't use the fish in our tasting. The salad with goat cheese & the pork belly were my 2 favorites. We always love chefs tastings but I think in this case I would've rather ordered off the menu because a few dishes sounded more special & interesting than what we actually got.

We booked a specific table for a friend's birthday lunch. We were given that table and felt as though we were in a beautiful private home enjoying a wonderful celebration. The staff was attentive but also never rushed us. Gregory paced everything beautifully. We all agreed that the experience lived up to our expectations. It was wonderful. Thank you to everyone at Brick Farm Tavern for making this a memorable day.

This was my first time at Brick Farm and I must say the service was fantastic. Upon ordering the waiter asked me for food allergies. He put in my order and came back minutes later apologizing but most of the menu was cooked with my allergy and my only options were a steak or burger. Well, I am pregnant- who wants a well done burger or steak!? The chef accommodated me and gave me an item off their restaurant week menu which was delicious. Such good service!
