I visited twice in July, once for drinks with a group of girlfriends on a Friday night - which although was really busy with diners, was great for drinking. I visited again on a Monday night a few weeks later with my extended family and my 9 and 6 yr old for my 40th birthday. Food was good for starters and excellent for mains - enough to choose from to satisfy a picky 6 yr old and a 71 yr old. Tapas starters were a great idea, everyone had a little of something. Rib eye was perfect, cocktails were great, wine was good. Will absolutely go again.

Modern decor which Is a little cold to me. Food is fine, nothing special. The hummus isn't great in the tapas and e calamari I had was tough. Great location and staff fairly friendly. Compared to browns at its heyday of fine dining, this is a poor comparison but nice cocktails and atmosphere in the evening. Don't expect fine dining and you'll be satisfied

I visited Browns in July 2012 with business associates who had flown in from California. We had a fantastic evening, great food, excellent service (thank you Leon) and a vibrant atmosphere that didn't intrude on personal conversation.

The location, of course, is very pleasant being on the river and the interior is modern and chic without losing it's intimacy and comfort. I've dined at several of the local restaurants belonging to the owner of Brown's since becoming a resident of Worcester, and the quality of food and service is always of the highest quality. I'm returning to Browns again on Saturday of this week to dine with friends, so there's no better endorsement than that. Check it out, you'll be glad you did.

Great bar to relax in, fantastic choice of wines. I love that they have sections for the wines so you know which you'd prefer! The Pinot Noir is brilliant. I love going there!

Went here with a group of friends for a relaxed Saturday lunchtime. Chose from the tapas menu (9 different dishes) and were pleasantly surprised by the good portion size and the delicious variety.
Riverside location makes this an enjoyable experience for dining in the heart of Worcester city.
Car parking available in Pay & Display behind the Worcester College building on Deansway.
