Time Out says

British and West Indian flavors collide at this 50-seat Bushwick gastropub lined with vintage wallpaper and paintings. The menu features mash-ups like oxtail sloppy joes ($12), curried goat shepherds pie ($15) and a falafel burger ($10). 


The kitchen even stays open until 2:30am on weekdays and 3:30am on weekends with a limited late-night menu. Mosey up to the horseshoe-shaped bar to order a drink. Cocktails include a mezcal margarita spiced with scotch bonnets, a maple old fashioned and a classic Pimm’s cup and (all $12). The Rookery also offers a wide selection of beers on draught, such as Carlsberg lager and Five Boroughs Gose ($8 for a 20-ounce pint). During the warmer months, take your drink outside to the sunny beer garden in the front.

The Rookery says
We're a contemporary Brooklyn pub housed in an industrial space, with an outdoor front beer garden and 16-foot horseshoe bar.

The Rookery combines brilliant pub grub with a lovely garden, sterling cocktails and a great wine list. We will have two beer engines delivering local cask ales, as well as a wide selection of draught and bottled beer. The owners bring their unique blend of British and West Indian cultures to this corner of Brooklyn.

Located in Bushwick, at 425 Troutman street, between St. Nicholas and Wyckoff ave, one block from the Jefferson l stop.

Favorite bar, beautiful atmosphere , friendly and attentive staff. Cozy garden. In the winter there is a fire pit!!

This has to be one of the most beautiful bars I've had the pleasure to visit in Brooklyn. A pleasant escape from the reclaimed wood, and typical new American bar food one is used to in This neck of the woods. They capture a true, all sorts, Brittish pub vibe, while staying cosmopolitan and NYC sophisticated. But somehow unpretentious. The bartenders were friendly and helpful, and the drinks were spot on! Great beer list, and awesome cocktails. Also a spacious patio, with lovely plants and sun. Though I live in the LES I think they'll be seeing lots of me.


Rookery made me feel like I was a cast member in Girls, but I mean that in a good way. Very very urban chic nostalgic laid back set up with a horseshoe bar in the center. The bar food is pretty good and reasonably priced and the drinks are actually great. I love the fact that they have about 5 different pickle back shots, all paired with different alcohols (so your friend who hates Whiskey... boo... can't back out). I went on a Friday around 8pm and it was pretty low key and never got too crowded, which was nice (compared to Manhattan). It is also on a pretty populated street with a lot of other bars and restaurants around, so good for a newb to Bushwick trying to navigate the scene. 

My friends and I went here for brunch one weekend, and I liked it, although it didn't totally wow me. The two things that stand out: The design of the place and the fact that you can order a Scotch egg, which I love. (Actually you can't order it for brunch—the pub grub/dinner menu seems more exciting than the brunch menu, which just features breakfast sandwiches, although there are two oxtail beef options, and steak and eggs.) The place has an awesome U-shaped bar, which I think is great for having a drink alone or with someone. The vintage pub design of the place is pretty cool. The hostess and server were sort of hipster-pretentious.
