Absolutely loved this restaurant, can not fault anything inc the service was also great and quick which is most important. We ordered a bunch of small plates for dinner, we had smoked cheddar croquettes, crispy chicken, fish and pork sliders, roasted beetroot salad, and the Brooklyn pizza. Between 3 adults and 1 child, was definitely enough just enough room for... More

Go here regularly with a group of friends. Booked a table on a Friday night through first table website that gives you 50% off all food. Everyone at our table enjoyed their food. Have never had their prawn linguine before and it was excellent.

From out of town, came here on a saturday night 20th jan, with my partner. We were both really hungrey so thought we'd try this place out. As soon as we walked in we were greeted by a very friendly waitress, we were impressed straight away. She was very helpful, we choose the pulled pork pizza and the beef fillet,... More

I enjoyed my wood fired pizza and pint of beer upstairs sitting outside on a perfect summer day. Great food, friendly service and great views upstairs.

This restaurant was nice! The service, food and setting were totally average. Unfortunately though the menu is really confused.... What is this place? Pizza restaurant? Bistro? Tapas bar? Until restaurants will commit to being great at one thing then they'll be consigned to being mediocre at many....A jack of all trades and a master of none.

Hi Thank you for your feedback. Sorry that we did not provide you with a positive & memorable experience of Brooklyn. We do offer both wood fired pizzas & tapas/share plates which we feel works really well for this area. Our menu is very much a sharing/tapas style of a menu which is why we believe wood fired pizzas works... More

Friend & I enjoyed our first Time visit here.. Great staff were friendly & helpful. Our drink orders were delivered quickly - delicious Iced Chocolate on a hot day really hit the spot nicely. Yummy Garlic Bread to share & a decadent Peanut Butter Cheesecake as well. No ghosts to be seen!! ;)

We dined at Brooklyn patio to celebrate our anniversary, it was the perfect setting with an incredible view. We indulged in such delicious meals whilst being served by an exceptional waitress who did nothing but helped make our night a wonderful dining experience. The pulled pork and wood fired pizzas were so yummy, along with the mouth-watering cheese balls as... More

Was seated by waitress at a table for 4. (only 2 of us dining) Menus given to us. Then after a minute or two she came back and said I cannot sit you at a table for 4, you will have to go outside (in the cold) as there is a table there for 2. Only 1 table was reserved... More
