Yes the bar's architecture and ambiance are great, however, and I am talking from years of experience trying to like this bar; the barmaid is absolutely the worst. She is nasty, rude, mean, unfriendly, belligerent and dishonest. I cant imagine a bar owner permitting her to act the way she does at this bar, she steals from customers and she... More

Has a great old-time (or so I imagine!) bar vibe, with dim lighting and solid darks wood throughout no TV, and cash-only. Several nooks and crannies with tucked-away seating, aside from the bar, window seating, and a pool table in the back. Great spot hidden in the neighborhood!

We stayed in Brooklyn for 4 nights and came here every night because it is a really lovely looking pub, no TV's, nice dark and mellow vibe inside. However the beer can be really awful, it wasn't good most nights, but the last night the bartender blatantly served me slops from the wrong beer, I mean apart from looking awful... More

A few reviews refer to this place as the nearest thing to an English pub in NYC. That would be true if those pubs were run by an irrationally negative, unhelpful and unfriendly barman (I'm sure some pubs fit that criteria in UK but I'm yet to meet as toxic a bar person as the one we encountered here). Every... More

I love the Brooklyn Inn, it has a wonderful atmosphere of an old bar, and it's pretty spacious. I believe it's cash only which is a little annoying but wouldn't stop me from going back.

A great bar with a good selection of Beer and Ales, even English ones! Can be crowded and has a good atmosphere, service can be slow at peak times

Totally stumbled upon this place walking around as it was too early for dinner. From outside it looked closed but when we entered, it was right up our alley. Old bar with huge mirrors, tin ceiling and small alcoves. If it had a fireplace with peat, I would have thought we were in Ireland. Friendly, reasonably drink prices.

Went here for a couple of drinks last night. On Hoyt off Atlantic in Boerum Hill. It is celebrating 100 years this coming week! Old bar very cool inside......tin ceiling, stained glass, old wooden bar, giant mirror behind it, pool table in back. Drinks were $8. Friendly local crowd. Classic rock in the background just loud enough to hear. Easy... More

Brooklyn Inn has all the basics and plenty more - good beer, OK wine and well made cocktails. A genuine friendly atmosphere, and the right mix of tasteful music, bar buzz and peace and quiet. But what really sets it apart is the light - dappled in the afternoon, moody early evening and inviting from the outside at night.

Meet some friends here while in Brooklyn and really like this pub. It was a Tuesday night and there were some regulars in having a quiet pint. There was background music playing but it was not loud so we were able to have a a good chat over a couple of pints.
