Booked in last minute with a party of twenty people for afternoon tea celebrating a childs birthday. Reservations completed over the phone with great communication back and forth. Ranjit the manager had instructed Tiger to look after booking. Great welcome to all concerned as and when they arrived. Seated in the upstairs part of the restaurant across two seating arrangements... More

There was about ten of us that came here for a family meal after the theatre. At first we were told that our table that we had booked would take a while and then as soon as we ordered a drink at the bar it was ready! I didn’t bother ordering a starter, as there was really anything particular that... More

Hi Amy M, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. I'm sorry that you were disappointed with some of the food - we have an extensive menu to suit various budgets so it's a shame you felt the roast half chicken was a small portion and overpriced. I agree about the profiteroles - they really are... More

This was my first visit to browns restaurant in Birmingham and was for a family birthday. I ordered the afternoon tea for the two of us. I felt this was very overpriced for what we had. It came with 6 sandwiches which were tiny brioche rolls and a selection of cakes which didn't taste great and even left some. I... More

This was my first visit. I entered on the top floor and wondered why the place was deserted then realised it was open downstairs only. First impression was nicely decorated and welcoming. It was very quiet which suited my friend and I as were we're looking for a relaxing catch-up. The special offer menu looked good and I ordered fish... More

We had a lovely meal here on New Year's Eve. Didn't book, Walked in and got a table straight away. Lovely Crab starter and nice juicy steak as main course! Good location! Cannot fault it, will definitely be returning.

Great location, lovely food, service excellent! Wide choice of options, including breakfast served until lunch time. We were served by a very friendly, helpful and interesting guy called Domas, who made us feel very welcome.

We popped in Browns for afternoon lunch, after a day of shopping at the Bull Ring. The atmosphere was great we didn't have to wait long for a table. The food was fantastic and a great choice of wines. It was a lovely place , when we are next in Birmingham we will visit again.

Recently took advantage of the early evening two course special offer available up to 7pm. Plenty of choice available. My selection of smoked haddock fish cake followed by pulled beef sandwich could not be faulted. My wife also enjoyed her beetroot and goats cheese followed by grilled chicken sandwich. Will definitely be visiting again in the future . Thanks Dan... More

Booked a table early in December and paid a £20 deposit for me and my partner. Had a really nice evening, friendly staff and excellent food but when the bill turned up I noticed that the deposit hadn't been deducted. I queried it with the waitress and she said it was an oversight. I wonder how many other oversights there... More
