Its understated elegance makes it a stylish, yet relaxing place to sample our delicious, freshly prepared food and our carefully chosen selection of wines, beers and cocktails. We're right in the centre of the oldest part of the city - the perfect place to watch the world go by as you sit back and enjoy our hospitality.

I went here on lunchtime with a friend from work. We were quickly seated and drinks orders taken straight away.

I order cornfed chicken, which was juicy and my friend ordered pasta which was a good size portion for lunch. The plates were quickly taken and bill arrived soon after by our friendly waiter, so it was good for us being in an hour in less than an hour. perfect place to visit on your lunch during working hours.

I met with a friend for afternoon tea and it was our first visit there. There was a lovely selection of sandwiches and cakes (too many for us to eat but we managed to smuggle some out!). Staff were very helpful, asking if we would like fresh pots of tea/water. Peter, our server, was great! Looking forward to another visit soon!

We went for an early evening meal in Browns on Monday 16th June and all in all it was a very pleasant evening. We did enjoy the food although my partner's tortellini was a bit on the small side, more like a starter. He could have eaten two of them! We were served by a very pleasant young man called Praveen. He went out of his way to help us choose from the menu, giving us his personal recommendations which proved to be very good ones. The food was served at an appropriate time with not too long to wait for each course. We would not hesitate to go back.

Went here for my birthday meal. Food was expensive, service was ok, but the lamb and mint burger was burnt. I will not be returning.

I'm very disappointed to read your review. At Browns we pride ourselves on entertaining our tables dining for a special occasion, and aim to make the experience exceptional. I'm very disappointed that you and your party did not experience this. To have not received food and service to your expectation on a birthday occasion is not acceptable. In regard to pricing we do regularly carry out competitor research and feel we are priced competitively for the market in the area. I'm sorry you didn't have the experience you desired and any negativitys are investigated fully. It is feedback such as yours which allows us to improve our business and I do hope you will return to us.

Kind Regards
