Contemporary British
We took over Brookmans in 2011, and have recently re-launched with opulent interiors and a contemporary bar and eatery. We are proud to have become a hub for the local area with activity centring around the island bar, where we’ll be happy to serve you a great cup of coffee, a decent pint of beer or a glass of chilled champagne. Take a seat at the bar facing the door if you want to see and be seen, or find a table in the garden room which pens out onto the terrace. The eatery is warm and welcoming with deep teal walls and splashes of rich mustard yellow offset by soft greys lit by twinkling chandeliers. On the walls hang historic posters from the Metroland era when Brookmans Park was built, part of the hugely-optimistic garden suburb movement.

    Lovely decor. Had a light lunch with a friend - staff were great , very friendly, attentive and allowed us to relax and catch up with no rushing. Would be lovely venue for a number of occasions and celebrations and good outdoor space too.

    We were pleasantly surprised with the Brookmans. We booked for Fathers Day as we wanted to try something out of area. The location was lovely: we sat outside at the front and despite it not being sunny, we had shelter and the use of outdoor heaters. The staff were simply amazing and the ‘maitre d’ didn’t stop. Everyone was polite and happy. We had a bit of a wait from starter to main but it was Father’s Day and so was understandable in the circumstances. The food was perfect and was worth the wait. We had 3 courses with cocktails and after dinner coffee, all of which were delicious. I would most certainly recommend and will most certainly return!

    Booked a table for early dinner. Was practically empty but service was appalling. Ordered drinks but after 20 mins went to enquire on the delay and found them on a tray on the bar. Served them to myself. Then waited another 10 mins for someone to take our food order and , again , ended up wandering off to find someone. Food was poor quality. And to top it off had to , again , go find someone for the bill. We were only one of three tables. Can’t imagine what it’s like when busy.

    Considering this establishment is in the heart of a very beautiful Village it remains boring and quiet. The food is adequate. Although no ham for the eggs Benedict. Considering it’s Jubilee week there wasn’t any sign of any flags or commemorative events. Most of the village establishments are at least flying a flag! The Brookmans, although very local, is never on my top ten establishments to visit for food or coffee. Such a shame

    I arranged dinner for 2 friends from Enfield to join me, who had not been to The Brookmans but had friends who told them to visit. They were not disappointed and enjoyed the evening. Good food and no rush. We arrived at 19.30 & left at 20.15. We were looked after by Jamie, a young lady from Sydney, Australia who did us proud. Also great to have a chat with Ed when we had finished and were about to leave.

    After an attentive start , with drinks ordered when we arrived at 12:45 , we ordered a starter to share . It arrived around 1pm and was delicious . We waited a further 45min for our main courses . The roast pork main course was very nice , my beef Wellington lacked flavour , the mashed potato was average and the spinach was soggy and tasteless . I then ordered a small pudding and coffee , which was chocolate brownie , it arrived cold and solid , like it had just been taken out of the fridge, I asked if the brownie should have been warm , another portion arrived and was lukewarm at best . The staff were very pleasant and attentive , it’s just a shame my meal was not up to much and the time we waited for our mains .
