Sunday lunch at Browns is always the best! I frequent both the Edinburgh and Glasgow restaurants, but this week it was Glasgow's turn.

The restaurant is lively, but roomy enough to give diners the space they need - Sunday was particularly busy, being... More

They do an excellent 2 course lunch for £10. The restaurant is well situated in the corner of George Square and was a really nice place to meet up with two friends.

We had a family gathering for breakfast after the Santa Dash on Sunday morning. There were 17 including 3 children in the group and we had pre booked. We opted for the 2 for £9.99 breakfasts and had a choice of traditional or vegetarian. The plates were full and all the food was beautifully prepared, everyone including the children enjoyed...

We arrived on time and ordered our starters which took over 30 mins to arrive and weren't really that good. We then waited a further 40 mins after we had finished our starters for... More

As ever excellent food and service (by Mike) nice bright clean restuarant and nice atmosphere. The seating is very good as you are not sitting on top of the next table. Not the norm these days.
