Founded in 1973 and based in the busy and affluent West End area of Mayfair, the former Wells & Co gentleman’s outfitter has now been transformed into a cosy Browns Brasserie. The grand 19th century feel and décor of the restaurant makes for the most traditional of British dining experiences. The restaurant, which serves brunch, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, has a range of traditional English dishes but still pays homage to the fusion of cuisines that has become so popular in the UK.
For brunch you could go for the traditional full English breakfast, a selection of freshly baked mini pastries or eggs Royale on a toasted English muffin. Or try something different with the Lobster Benedict or smoked pancetta buttermilk pancakes served with savoury nut granola and maple syrup.
Dinner highlights a selection of hearty British favourites including herb-crusted rack of lamb hotpot, steak-and-Guinness pie and the Browns signature burger. Or if you want a more modern fusion dish, then the coronation cauliflower curry or prawn and crab linguine is ideal. They also have a range of different cocktails ranging from the classic Cosmopolitan and Espresso Martini. A signature menu featuring rhubarb and cucumber Collins and a Browns old fashioned. As well as a seasonal menu that is full of surprises.
If you’d prefer to visit for afternoon tea then you can enjoy a classic selection of salt beef and coronation chicken sandwiches, followed by a classic cream tea and a selection of cakes and puddings including Victoria sponge, carrot cake and a summer berry pudding. For many Browns customer the ‘quintessentially British’ brasserie is the ideal place for every occasion. Whether it be a relaxed dinner with friends, special anniversary or birthday brunch. This West End classic will impress anyone no matter what time you decide to visit.
