Browns is a special restaurant which quite fittingly sits at the heart of the resort. Named after Max Brown, who became legendary at The Mere for his magnetic charm, endless enthusiasm and innate passion for exemplary service, his spirit is echoed in our passion for food and guest experience. A destination restaurant with a simple philosophy, "Nature to plate", the prime focus is on using only the freshest seasonal ingredients, simply prepared, without all the fuss but presented in a refined way where the flavours of the dish are instantly recognisable. Our commitment to using local suppliers is of paramount importance to us. At Browns the food does the talking.
