The division’s bottom club were three goals down at the break after strikes from George Porter, Luke Coulson and Frankie Raymond.
Kodi Lyons-Foster’s header pulled one back for the Iron in the second half, before JJ Hooper restored Bromley’s three-goal lead.
Mohammed Sagaf scored a superb late goal for the hosts, but it was not enough to prevent a fifth defeat in six games.
