Square Meal Review of Browns Islington Green ?

Brown’s, a university town fixture, has now extended its reach from Brighton in the south to Glasgow in the north – with further openings on the agenda. There’s clearly mileage in its potted palms, bentwood chairs & a ‘something for everyone’ formula. Alas, readers continue to berate poor service & forgettable food that puts ‘quantity over quality’. Find a good branch or a good day though, & that old warm familiarity returns. The brasserie/grill menu gets it right with a retro offering of burgers, fish pies, lobster tagliatelle & chicken Caesar salads, while pork belly with cauliflower cheese ‘bread & butter pudding’ or cured Trealy Farm ham with figs feel right for today’s budget foodie. Inexpensive cocktails & some interesting wines (Brachetto d’Acqui, Château Musar among others) might surprise you.

    Rate My Bistro :: Browns Bar & Brasserie – Angel

    Browns feels more like a restaurant but you can go here just for drinks! There are wicker seats near the window, seats along the bar, and then there’s the big dining area. It has quite a nice relaxed atmosphere with its jazz music softly playing in the background. The atmosphere is also created by its soft lighting and dark wood decor. Browns has a range of teas and coffees as well as cocktails and soft drinks. I decided to have the Ceylon tea but unfortunately it was not available on this day. So, I went for the regular Earl Grey. The tea was served by the pot and it was nice that it was loose tea leaves...
