I've given this restaurant experience an overall rating of average, as some aspects of it were really great and others very disappointing. The staff are extremely friendly and welcoming, if anything slightly over-the-top with an air of pomposity. The selection of nibbles that were brought to the table before the starters arrived was fantastic, our party of 8 had beetroot... More

Having not patronised Browns for a while, my partner and I thoroughly enjoyed the Sunday lunch we had there recently. Welcomed by the award-winning chef himself (Ian Orr), we were treated to the best service I've had in many restaurants. From the peach Bellinis to the complementary hand-made petits-fours with our coffees, the whole experience was a real treat. The... More

My husband and I ate here at the beginning of August to celebrate a special occasion. We had the early bird menu which is £19.95 per person for 3 courses. The food was delicious and although it may look like there is not a lot on the plate we were certainly not hungry when we left. The service was excellent... More

My friend and I went on Saturday and had a wonderful meal. Everything was cooked to perfection and looked wonderful on the plate. The service was great and our server recommended a wonderful wine. All the little extras make you feel special. My favourite place to eat by a mile.

I did not quite know what to make of Browns. Some of the food was good but some was average - my friend had the cheeseboard which he said was absolutely outstanding. My soup course was fine but the portions for the main course were a bit sparse - you definitely need all three courses. It was a good place... More

Early in July we went for lunch and found there was a special menu for a three course lunch for £12 .50. We were offered complimentary breads and little tasters in addition. The quality of the cooking was outstanding. The veg cooked to perfection ,and most memorable was the sweet of the day - a lemon posset which was exquisite.... More

There is nothing I can fault about this restaurant. May be a bit pricey but it is a treat. The food presentation will not disappoint it is excellent. We will definitely be back. Highly recommend but advise booking as it is a busy little place.
