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.

    We were a large party of 14 and there seemed to be some issues with service. In particular eggs could not be cooked as well done. There was a lot of confusion and exytra meals came and went??? Overall it was enjoyable but the serving staff did not seem very expereinced.

    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.

    I live local to the Brookmans, where we have visited many times in the past and therefore invited a new client for breakfast this morning. Poor choice. No sausages for a breakfast as ran out, mint tea was so weak couldn’t taste the drink. The sour bread was stale and the eggs were cold. I didn’t want to say anything at the time as I was with a new client so It was just “the unsaid look” that Was given between my client and I. Really disappointed and clearly not geared up for a Monday morning breakfast.

    It took about an hour for the staff to bring our main courses after we had finished our starters. During this time our dirty starter plates were left on the table. I saw other diners complaining about slow service. I complained twice to staff that we felt ignored and were very hungry. To get the attention of staff I had to get up from my table and find them. On the third attempt I told staff that if our food wasn’t on our table in 5 minutes we were leaving. This worked, but by the time our meals arrived we were so hungry we just wolfed the food down without having a chance to really enjoy it. I felt like we had really wasted our money on the meal - it was not an enjoyable experience. The restaurant was busier than the staff could cope with. This is something that is totally in the restaurant’s control. It has a responsibility not to accept so many bookings that it can’t provide a good service.

My friend and I were getting together for the first time since lockdown and boy were we impressed... from the warm welcome, to the great service provided by the lovely Tiana Williams (you were AMAZING 👏), to the fantastic food. We've both decided that this is the place to meet when we get together again in the summer with our families. Looking forward to many visits now that this jewel of a pub has been discovered.

    They took a long time to bring drinks and forgot a glass of wine which I had to ask for twice. Two of us ordered the same dish which came out looking completely differently - the duck ragu, and sadly it was tasteless so we couldn’t eat it. The waitress asked if it was ok and we said we didn’t like it which is why it was hardly eaten but they still charged for it on the bill so I reminded them we didn’t eat it and they then took the £30 off the menu. It’s a shame the service was below par and the food was very average as it’s such a nice pub with a nice atmosphere and my first time eating in a restaurant in months.
