About
ENJOY THE BUZZ OF BROWNS ANY TIME OF DAY Browns, Kingston has uninterrupted views over the River Thames, an elegant mezzanine floor and cosy booth seating. On hot summer days, we open up the patio doors for a truly continental feel. This historic market town is a delightful mix of historical places such as the Ancient Market Place and contemporary shopping and entertainment venues.

Lovely location alongside River Thames, sun shining so delighted with our pre-booked outside table. Great atmosphere and although busy, service was excellent. Good choice on menu and food looked appetising and tasted jolly good. Impressed with gin selection on drinks menu!
