“The best Brown's Sunday Lunch, and we have been to a few”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

We have been to a few Brown's restaurants (Bluewater, Canary Wharf amongst others) and this restaurant serves the best Sunday dinner. The service, food and price are all brilliant and we highly recommend this restaurant (Bluewater could learn a thing or two from this restaurant, portion size and quality but equally as good from a staff point of view. Canary Wharf just need to improve their staff, never hurts to smile when taking a patrons money!!).

If visiting the Angel area on a Sunday this is a must, you will not be disappointed.

Browns Top 3:-
1) Angel
2) Bluewater
3) Canary Wharf

“Just passing. Glad we did not walk passed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

Vrry good food and service.
Great value for money. Well worth a visit. Ever when an accident happened on site the staff worked quietly and efficiently as a team to minimise any disruption.

Evening meal was delicious. Service was excellent & attentive. Good atmosphere but can get noisy. Lovely location, seating outside to have drinks before meal. Good range of cocktails & drinks.

“Unpleasant”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Unfortunate visit to Browns. Both my wife and I have eaten at Browns many times. We love Browns however we are falling out of love with this restaurant as it is slipping in terms of its service delivery. Busy Sunday and apparent lack of staff left is with a long wait, inconsistent service and eventually we left before food arrived. We had already spent considerable amount on drinks and nibbles. No food! No staff!

We left, paid, complained. Immaterial. Poor. This is not a good Brown's.
