About Browns Bristol
Sometimes you want a familiar favourite to see you through teatime, and it’s here that Browns deliver. This English chain of restaurants is well known for providing brasserie style comfort food and the Bristol branch is no different.
Unlike similar level chain restaurants Browns in Bristol is housed in stunning surrounds. The building is modelled on the Doge’s Palace in Venice which means there are huge arched and circular gothic-like windows surrounding the space, as well as a double height ceiling. The space is accentuated by a beautiful selection of furnishings which range from velvet banquette seating to upholstered leather chairs. Various tones of green are used throughout to create a calming oasis in the heart of the city, with plenty of foliage added for texture and movement (as well as offering fodder for that all-important Instagram moment). There’s even al fresco dining available here, should the weather allow for it.
Food-wise you can drop in at any time of the day for a quick bite or a leisurely meal. Serving up plates for breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as afternoon tea, there really is something for every occasion. Even if your requirements don’t fall within a typical mealtime bracket you can pull up a stool at the bar for a few snacks and a well-made cocktail or two (or three).
Chefs specials at Browns Bristol include daily fish dishes which are tailored to what the kitchen team have bought that day from the market. From monkfish to halibut, these carefully prepared dishes showcase the best of the season’s catch. Every Thursday fresh lobster is on the menu and Fridays see an oysters and Champagne special come into play. With steak Saturdays and roasts every Sunday, there really is a good excuse to visit every day of the week.
