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.

Totally Disappointed

Restaurant beautiful, reception staff excellent. Booked for romantic meal steak and Lobsters. Very unimpressed with Lobster as it was overcooked and rubbery, told waiter who said " ill pass feedback to chef!"
Wine was never refilled, water was never refilled, food missing from order and then charged for service charged. I was really looking forward to this restaurant but we are now so disappointed with our service and experience. Feel robbed.

Standard of food.

went for a meal with friends and were all very disappointed with our main meal. Starters were good but all our main meals were disappointing. My husbands fish pie contained 90% salmon with one prawn, one scallop and little else.  My fish and chips was cod and chips. Cod not very fresh and covered in hard batter. My friends steak sandwich was cold nd the chips served with it were also cold.  She complained to the waiter and he brought her another portion of hot chips after she had finished her meal. Certainly not value for money. Will not be back.
