“Outstanding!!!”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Whilst doing the Whiteladies Road walk we found Brace & Browns next to the BBC and are really pleased we did. Fantastic food, excellent service, great value and accommodated our 3 kids with enthusiasm. Would especially recommend the Mushroom Risotto and Tempura Prawns from the Tapas menu which were a delight whilst the chips took us back to our childhoods! Will certainly be making a return visit the next time we're in Bristol!!

“Bristol's new finest! 7 course Christmas lunch of sublime wonder for £22 per head! What a change.”
Reviewed December 21, 2012 via mobile

My only negative is the decking! You may well go A-over-T. More importantly, I'm a mince pie fan, and they really have to be good. The mince pies in our pre-pudding during the seven courses was incredible, as was the accompanying Christmas pudding ice-cream. In fact, the whole meal was resplendent.

Christmas is a time usually of over-priced food mediocrity, Whereas what we ate was anything but and I'm very keen to rerun in a normal day as the standard will be tremendous. The place to eat in Bristol.

“Always Brilliant”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

Been to B & B a few times for both food and just drinks. Always like the atmosphere, the staff are great and the food is consistently delicious. In the summer it is great to sit out on the terrace and as well as the tapas they do a great Sunday lunch. But like the others said, its a good idea to book. Good to support the local independents restaurants too, and nice to see them doing well.

“What a find!”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

Went with friends and did the tapas menu...great selection. Didn't book (mistake) so had to wait for the food....about half an hour BUT not an issue because we were told this before we sat down. 10 tapas dishes between two was great and at £40, good value and very well cooked. Service was good, no issues here and the atmosphere was really great.
Very friendly staff, nice bar.
Having had a few disappointing meals out recently...this was far from that. Will be going back!

Brace & Browns is a fabulous venue. The bar is cozy, friendly and well stocked. The tapas menu is extensive, delicious and very reasonably priced. The interior is comfortable and classy.

An all round winner :)
