Really nice looking place with lovely décor, classy looking bar area.. Excellent attentive service, good welcome and they obviously work on getting the front of house right. Nothing outstanding on the food front but it was all nicely presented and was very easy We will definitely revisit

The same Brown's ambience that we have experienced at Brown's in Leeds and Sheffield. Elegant decor, smart friendly staff and good food. Enjoyed a lovely pre-theatre dinner in a lovely relaxed atmosphere.

Lovely looking establishment both inside and out, good welcome. Menu was varied and nothing wrong with the food, but it was bland and a bit sole-less, it looked liked it was all precooked or processed so a bit disappointing and had zero wow factor. The service was very good, which really made a difference but not enough to come back,... More

Nice welcome and showed to our table which I had booked in advance. Waitress friendly and gave us time to order. Food tasty and delivered promptly. Overall a good experience . Just a shame the waitress constantly chewed gum whilst talking to us!

Food was nice, portion size small but well presented, I do prefer pie's to have a base too, not just a lid and a ceramic bowl.

Another visit here, one of several over the years but my first for lunch. The usual good atmosphere, service and bistro style food - no complaints with anything. Booking advised though, especially at weekends for lunch and evenings too throughout the week as its in theatre land. Recommended.

The atmosphere is cosy and characteristic. The food is traditional (we took fish pie and seebass) and well prepared. Service was very attentive and friendly. Bravo Marcos!
