I had been eyeing up the B&B award winning Sunday roast for a while - rated as 'Best Sunday Roast in Bristol 2014' and oh it didn't disappoint! The restaurant itself is lovely; friendly staff and lots of unique little touches. The Sunday roast sharing board for two was not only aesthetically pleasing (very instagram-able) it was also delicious. We... More

nice venue, good food and service but high steps outside either without bannisters or having bannisters which were unusable as intertwined with wire for lights.

Second visit for brunch and it was just as good as the first. The menu had changed since the last time which was fab as we got to try new tasty dishes. The variety is great, staff are wonderful (nothing is too much trouble) and a great atmosphere. Their reputation is certainly spreading. Highly recommend.

When working away alone you rarely hang around when eating out for fear of being noticed as a loner...such is the way....but my first complement to Brace and Browns is that I wanted to stay longer due to the engaging, pleasant staff and overall dining experience. Lets get a few slight gripes out of the way before I progress into... More

The weekend brunch to die for in Bristol. You will need to book well in advance, your glass will probably not go empty as the attentive staff constantly top it up. The prossecco is really good quality. The selection of food items is good and we enjoyed each dish very much, our favourite being a bubble and squeak dish with... More

Found this restaurant by chance and were attracted to it because of the lovely outside area. As it was a Monday night they had a 'tapas' special, a sort all you can eat for 15 pounds (per person, which they failed to mention). As in the end we only managed to eat 6 different tapas, it was actually quite expensive.... More

Sitting out on the terrace in the summer is really nice Service was quite slow though, we ended up ordering our next lot of... More

Actually really disappointed with my visit today after the big hype of Brace&Browns infamous bottomless brunch and prosecco. We visited as a party of 8 booked in at 1300, the food was average today, the service was poor and the flow of food was very very slow!! 2 of us were having the 'sobriety brunch' and weren't offered any juices...
