Brooklyn >Harefield Road
“Its cozy, cool, and has great wooden floors, tables, and walls.”
“ordered a dirty martini which was met with nothing but disdain and disgust by the bartender because it wasn't a "happy hour drink special.”
“And for people to be bickering over those points rather than the restaurants contents itself, realizing they're getting a full brunch meal + beverage + tea or coffee for a flat $12 fee, is beyond words.”
“they have a great selection of booze but but the atmosphere is extremely cold and so are the employees.”
“It's a nice place to call a local as well as a nice place to show off the neighborhood to out-of-town visitors.”
“Cute Williamsburg regulars, good bartenders.”
“So basically I told her the following: we want to drink a lot of expensive drinks and we don't care about happy hour.”
“best eggs benedict i've had in a long time.”
yes, good Guinness. Hard to find a decent one sometimes- wrong temp, wrong glassware, wrong technique. Found it here. Slurp.
@smydbiatch are you sure you're telling the truth?.
First of all, I've never known Harefield to have any specials. Second, I don't think they do phone in orders (I could be wrong on that count). Having enjoyed Harefield for many moons, what you're saying makes it sound like you've never even been in the place.
To everyone else, Harefield is great, but you shouldn't need me to tell you that.
A comfortable spot to hang out in. I think the person who wrote that last review was clearly sipping from the Creature itself while writing it. I've been to Harefield many times and have always found the atmosphere to be nothing short of warm, welcoming and appreciative. A terrific selection of beer and, for a pub, some decent wine offerings. Plus the space is very well configured, so it never feels crushed and crowded, and beautiful architectural details everywhere. The back garden is a lovely place to get away from it all. The bartenders seem to have great taste in music, too!
not so much. Don't expect to be treated as a regular even tho you've lived next door for 5 years. They truly are not good at this. they have a great selection of booze but but the atmosphere is extremely cold and so are the employees. You get what you get and no help even if you are in danger...not such a great neighborhood. look out for yourself even if the bartender says he has yer back. And the brunch is bad major don't even bother. If yer not waiting an hour for a table you're waiting an hour and a half for your food. Work it out they say...no comp drinks nothing...don't waste your time. Go to Legion across the street.
Fantastic Neighborhood Bar. This section of Williamsburg was in serious need of a serious bar. The woodwork is just amazing, the beer selection is quite extensive but not pretentious, the pricing on everything is very good/not expensive, the atmosphere is inviting, trendy, relaxing. Great Brooklyn beers at a working-man's price. Cute Williamsburg regulars, good bartenders. Glad its here!!
GREAT BAR,GREAT BRUNCH,GREAT BEER,. A SUPERB ADDITION TO THE BURG,FINALLY SOMEONE GETS IT.HAD AN AWESOME BRUNCH THERE,BLOODY MARY TO DIE FOR AND THE FOOD WAS EXCELLENT, AND FOR A TOTAL OF $11,WHAT A BARGAIN.GOOD PLACE TO HANG WITH ANYBODY.THE STAFF ARE VERY COOL AND A GREAT SELECTION OF 20 BEERS OR MORE.VERY IMPRESSED WITH THE SPACE,ESPECIALLY THE WOODEN CEILING AND WIDE PLANK FLOORS.HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Best pour in town (an excellent brunch). Hands down, the best pour in Brooklyn. Unpretentious and relaxed. An excellent selection of drafts, single malts, and decent wines. On weekends, they have a fantastic brunch (be sure to try the Bloody Mary with Guinness). Nicest pub in town.
nice. Nice selection of single malts at very reasonable prices. The one thing that really annoys me about this place though is the beveled edge of the bar, you can't really lean your elbows on it in any comfortable position. Maybe it's like this on purpose? Like to keep people from falling asleep at the bar or something?
awesome brunch. we went here for brunch this past sunday and it was fabulous. 11 dollars buys you an entree, coffee or tea, and either mimosa or bloody mary. best eggs benedict i've had in a long time. the atmosphere is really cool - a modern versin of an english pub. friendly, down-to-earth wait staff too. we will be coming back!
My local bar. I can head to Harefield just about any time. The staff are all friendly, charming, and they knot their stuff. The bar itself is beautifully done. Good selection of beers and bourbons. What else do you need out of life, really?
