My boyfriend took me to Derry for a weekend and we had heard good reviews about Browns. We were not disappointed. The staff were very helpful and our meal was so tasty. Was a nice wee atmosphere and I would definitely recommend Browns to anyone visiting Derry.

In a town coming down with mediocre restaurants, Browns still stands out on its own as being a high quality restaurant. The food was delicious, the service was efficient but unobtrusive and the atmosphere was relaxed. While it may cost a bit more than the standard and they don't do 30% off every night - it is well worth paying... More

The only small negative I think is I would have liked some elements on the tasting menu explained better. I know some people prefer no explanation -like I said small negative. Every Sunday we read mr Orrs ad from lidl and his recipes so when we were in Derry for the day we thought we would check out his grub... More

Browns has a reputation as the No. 1 restaurant in Derry. It wins awards, which obviously counts for far more than my TripAdvisor review. Its sister restaurant, Browns in Town gets rave reviews from my wife although I've never eaten there. I can only tell you that on the two occasions I've eaten here, in the original, I've been disappointed.... More

Had a meal in Browns during halloween with my wife and 5 children. Service and meal were excellent. One of the best family meals ever. Could not fault meal or patience and professionalism of staff. Perfect. This was my first time in Browns, and will come back.

Went here for the Early Bird menu and have to say it was a lovely relaxed experience with great food and wine and good service overall. For the price it is extremely good value.

Had lunch with a friend and we were both very impressed! The food is absolutely delicious! I'm sorry I didn't get back there on my recent visit. It's definitely on my list for next time. I would HIGHLY recommend Browns for a meal.
