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.

    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.

    Delicious food and very friendly staff. Did have to wait for a bit of a while after asking for the bill to receiving it. I know they had to apply a promo code but it still seemed like a long time to wait. That would be my only complaint, everything else was great and would definitely go again.

The dogs were greeted like old friends and the staff recognised us all so it felt very welcoming. A good choice on the menu and everyone ate everything!! It felt very safe in terms of CoVID and we would not hesitate to come back

    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 .

    I specifically went to the Brookmans to have the chicken Milanese which was on the main menu, however I was disappointed as it was not available. The restaurant manager Liam said it was because the kitchen had been busy and could not have known that they would need so many portions. Seems a bad excuse for poor kitchen management- how can the simplest and most popular chicken dish on the main a la carte menu not be available? Many you need to ring ahead to check what is available when you go to this pub…

    We had a lovely spot in the garden but unfortunately it seems all but one salad has been taken off the menu. We all had the hot and sour salad but the halloumi was deep fried which is not mentioned on the menu and the starter size and the main course were exactly the same size in the same size bowls but the main was twice the price. The Brookmans is a great spot and could be a real hub for socialising but sadly the food just always falls short of what it should be. The staff are all really good and service is good too but just need to offer a better lunchtime menu with less heavy meals and more lighter options especially in the Summer months.
