We went there for lunch and I had lunch set with salad for the starter, pork belly for the main and banoffee pie for the dessert. Salad is light taste. Pork belly (juicy) and dessert (not too sweet and it's just right) are really nice! Excellent staffs and feel like they really care and value about... read more

I traveled there with a church group tour, There were 40 of us, so we took up most of the space. It was prearranged, so they knew that we were coming. The food was excellent, service nice and friendly. I would recommend it!

I held my 30th birthday celebrations at Brace&Browns and they couldnt have been more helpful in the lead up to and on the night itself! We had lunch there during the day, which was stunning and i was amazed at the quality and portion size when we were doing 3 courses for £13 (which runs at certain times every day... More

The first impression that the place is a bit tatty is confirmed when you go to the loo and the washbasin tap is alarmingly loose and the romantic aura of candles is carried too far when it becomes Stygian gloom and you feel obliged to ask if there are any steps to be encountered. The menus attached to clipboards are... More

On 3 occasions I've been in here for drinks and to try to eat, every time the service has been absolutely appalling, non existent. Having a hospitality background I'm absolutely dumbfounded as to how this place continues. Final straw was my 3rd visit on Saturday when, after a 30 minute queue at the bar some one who knew the staff... More

Had a fantastic Sunday roast last weekend. The service was spot on, attentive without being in your face. We sat out in the sunshine and had roast beef and roast lamb. The waiters wine suggestion was excellent. A little pricey by the glass but a nice drop nonetheless. I had the beef and it was perfectly medium rare and a... More

Visited for the first time last Thursday for the early deal straight from work. We found a seat outside and although we had booked a table inside they were happy for us to sit on the terrace in the sun. The staff were very friendly, the food was lovely and the Thursday prossecco deal made for a very lovely evening.... More

Lunch tapas in the sunshine on the terrace (which is slightly elevated from Whiteladies Rd) are good. Well, they are when the head chef is in... occasionally less experienced cooks are let loose and it shows. Decent glass of Pinot Griggio but not cheap. You do pay a bit of a premium here for position (and next to the BBC... More

The food is great but the staff are patronising and stuck up. The food isn't good enough to put up with having a meal there which is a shame, they let the place down!
