Cuisine: A La Carte, New Zealand, Public House
Price Point: Mains from $20 - $30

Known as ‘the Brooky’ to its friends, of which it has many, this convivial bar and restaurant has been the beating heart of the Brooklyn area since it opened its doors in 2011.

It’s the perfect spot to catch up with friends over a game of darts, cheer on your favourite sports team on several enormous screens or have a chilled out meal with the family. They even have a toy box to keep the kids entertained, while you enjoy some much needed ‘you’ time.

Snack on starters such as fried halloumi and garlic bread, before enjoying classic comfort food at its very best.

Tuck into the likes of juicy burgers and fish and chips, as well as more exotic options such as spicy beef salad. A dedicated pizza and kids menu ensures that there really is something for everyone.

Behind the bar, there’s a constantly changing roster of local craft beers as well as a selection of Kiwi wines that goes above and beyond what you’d expect in a standard pub. From prosecco to pinot gris, they’ve got you covered.

So what are you waiting for? Time to meet your new local.

We went to the Brooklyn Bar for a birthday dinner and wanted somewhere that was kid friendly. We were rapt when we got there and found that they had a substantial number of kids toys so our kids got busy playing with those and we got to be adults and catch up on the day.

The menu was all great pub fare and we totally enjoyed the steak and pork ribs we chose. The meal portions were a good size, leaning towards being generous (I had to give away some of my pork ribs to the rest of the family). One of the kids had fish and chips and the other the chicken burger and they both enjoyed what they ate.

The staff were friendly and made the whole experience really pleasant. Our youngest told us he wants to go back there for his birthday.

Great neighbourhood bar and bistro which I would be happy to have as my local! Family friendly and plenty of TV screens to satisfy sports addicts. Food was excellent, we had the pork ribs (deliciously sticky and meaty) and the chicken mignon (yum!). The salt and pepper squid was also delectable. Prices are reasonable and the service is friendly and efficient. Will be back!

It was a good experience dining at this restaurant. Ambience is very homie, kids have a play area, food is very good especially the slow cook lamb and burgers. I highly recommend it.

I've eaten here a few times previously but the staff seemed to be off their game a bit tonight. Service was a bit slow and things seemed to be a bit disorganised. Food was as good as ever so overall, an enjoyable evening.

Really relaxed and friendly atmosphere, good and decent sized beers on tap. Sports on screen while we enjoyed our dinner of delicious, juicy steak and filling portion of roast pork belly with a side of chips. Lovely local establishment for everyone. It's cool.

Great place. A nice open setting unlike most cramped bars. Service was excellent. What my partner ordered was also excellent, though my pizza could have been better. Average base and needed a bit more flavour. Enjoyed it anyway but that's why I gave it a 4/5.

We will likely be back.

Had a great meal at Brooklyn Bar. Pricing very reasonable. My partner really enjoyed the Ribs. The Thai spicy salad just a little too spicy for me, but that's just my taste. Would go again for dinner quite happily. Could be noisy if rugby on.
