Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Reviewed 22 October 2023

Outstanding pub, the new management Hannah and Will (photographed) have made some great improvements here. I visited yesterday, the first time for a while. The table I usually had now has two very comfortable leather armchairs which were shining with leather polish! Elsewhere the tables...were all shining clean. There is a new menu. I had the steak and Bishops Finger ale pie made with plenty of lean steak and baby onions. (Photographed) Bishops Finger is a winter warmer ale from Shepherd and Neame (Faversham) and this is one of their pubs. The pie was served up very hot with slightly pickled red cabbage, delicious mashed potatoes and gravy. There was so much veg you certainly do not need sides with that dish The decor in the pub was very autumnal, very tasteful - especially around the fireplace and elsewhere. The staff were all so friendly. I felt they were genuinely keen to make sure I enjoyed myself and that I had all I need. A friend arrived later to meet me for the football which was on plenty of screens. I drank mostly the Red ale and my friend had Masterbrew. Both were very fresh and highly pleasant to the taste. I will be back soon.More

Great staff, great location, great range of beers and the food is exceptional. The chef is also a top bloke, as are the rest of the staff. Would definitely recommend

Visited with friends before a football match, ordered food 12:40, no sign of it at 1:40, complained, my meal came out 5 mins later, fries were Luke warm, burger the same, after paying £13.50 for ! Friends ham egg and chips arrived 1:55, eggs overdone,...chips overdone, other friends got a refund as we couldn’t wait any longer ! Yes it was busy but they should of warned us how long we would be waiting, hardly seen any food being served in the hour we were waiting. The lady serving it up said she was going as fast as she could bit couldn’t do everything. Thought food was overpriced and not great either, shame as it could be a good pub.More

I love this pub and the staff are superb. Similarly the beer is excellent. It's just a shame they changed the menu upon reopening after covid because the new one lacks variety and is very poor value for money.

Love the food in the bricks - would highly recommend the burgers and loaded fries! The service is top notch too, we’re always made to feel very welcome (especially the dog). The best pub in Bromley!

Since the change of menu (which I have to say looked really exciting on paper) I have eaten twice at the Bricklayers and have been disappointed on both occasions. This is the pub that I used to tell all my friends and family about the...fantastic quality of food we ate there, well not any more. It’s certainly not value for money with the cost of a burger not even including chips! Even the mucky chips are just that! A small plate of skinny fries leaving you wondering if they’d dropped half of them on the way to you and not delivering what you are promised. I love this pub, the staff and the atmosphere so please go back to the old menu or another menu or at least adjust your prices to suit what you’re delivering and stop trying to cut corners for possible loss of revenue during Covid because that’s what it appears that your are doing.More

I am in the Bricklayers Arms in Bromley having a lovely lunch, really comfortable to sit in on your own and friendly service. Nice atmosphere. They also have a birthday club with a free meal on your birthday, what more could you ask for!

Food was good and although Whitstable Pale Ale was undrinkable and off, the replacement was pleasant enough. Not the friendliest place I have been in, and the presence of the police in the pub, was a little disconcerting.
