Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

This was our first visit since Browns has been under new management. The previous restaurant was very upmarket & great for romantic gourmet meals, however that has all gone and the new Browns is more like a wine bar that does food well. It has great atmosphere & would be a fantastic place for a group gathering, but is too noisy for a romantic couples meal. The food was very good, & plentiful, but slightly higher priced given the surroundings. We will return, but with a group next time.

“Well Worth a Visit”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

I ate here with my family. We all agreed the food was excellent, the staff friendly and efficient and a good atmosphere. We had the set price menu and it was very good value for money. They have had problems with flooding in recent weeks and have lost a lot of business , so go on folks of Worcester, give them a go.!!

“Christmas do or don't at Browns”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

I was looking forward to the food at Browns as I had been there for a Christmas do before, but that was when it was under the old management. I had chicken liver pâté as a starter, which was a cumbersome couple of wedges adorned with a sparse offering of bread. The main course consisted of beef, which was well cooked but the flavour could have been more creative and overall it was a fairly bland dish. The desert that I chose was treacle tart and that was somewhat disappointing. Three of us had chosen an identical menu and we all agreed that it wasn't as good as the food had been under the previous management and that overall it lacked seasoning, flair and flavour. I would say that it was disappointing.

“Fab tapas”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Lovely place to eat and relax. Good atmosphere and decor. Fab tapas menu - the only trouble was deciding what to have - ordered too much in the end as we fancied all of it! Will have to go back again soon to try more........
