    Browns - as always - promises good food and a lovely restaurant. I ordered the crab and prawn linguine - should have been delicious - it tasted OK. But overnight was extremely sick and had to get up numerous time to go to the loo! Wasn't going to make a fuss but would urge Browns to check storage / cooking of seafood. And have since been BOMBARDED with requests for review - so have given one. Might go back to Browns but will definitely NOT ordered anything fishy!!! Very disappointing.

    Browns, Cambridge is in the lovely old historical Addenbrooke's Hospital building with a very grand entrance and outside terrace - opposite The Fitzwilliam Museum. I visited with friends and the food and staff were very good - I had the Scallops to start and the Prawn abd Crab Linguine for Mains - it was all very nice and well presented and I will revisit and would recommend.

    Slightly disappointing. Food was indifferent this time. Looked good but did not taste as it should. I had much better meals at Browns Cambridge and certain they can do better. Hopefully this was just a one off.

    Welcoming and friendly staff - our waitress was excellent.My belly pork - part of the Sunday Roast was a little overcooked so rather dry and th3 two Creme Brulee, whilst delicious, were sparsely sugared so lacked colour in topping.

    It was utterly freezing inside the restaurant which spoilt the whole experience. Eating with a coat on doesn’t do it for us. All patrons were sat one side of the restaurant and our table was overlooked by patrons above us on a platform which was extremely overbearing. We asked to move to a vacant table against the side wall and the waiter told us it would take 10 minutes to clear the table ready for us and meantime refused to take our order until we were sat at the new table! Bizarre! The restaurant should have warned us via telephone ahead of time that the heating was so poor instead of announcing it on arrival. Do not visit until the weather heats up! Birthday lunch was a disappointing experience.

    The lights and soft furnishings were dirty & dusty. We arrived & they didn’t have our booking. The staff were not quick with their service & not attentive. I’m afraid the chicken schnitzel did not taste very good at all. No heating at all in the restaurant. Very cold.

    The festive menu was somewhat truncated - which was a shame. My colleague thought his starter was cold: I had no complaints - although I was initially offered another persons main course in error. The staff were and service good and atmosphere was excellent. Wine by the glass was excellent although - as is now the case everywhere - disproportionately expensive. There was no hassling to get us to leave - which was much appreciated.

    Very smart and good. Disappointing no fishcakes left on sweet lunch given early lunch booking. And amount of smoked salmon on starter rather mean. Mainly toasts. Very good apart from that. Nice terrace.

    Poor selection on the menu. Partner ordered a rare steak, it came more on the well done side. He did make a comment to the the waitress but said he would eat it as he didn’t want to wait for another as the rest of us had our meals. They did deduct it from the bill which we felt was fair as it wasn’t what was ordered. Overall an average meal.

    Unfortunately the dish my partner ordered wasn't available 'due to the bank holiday'. My dish didn't come as I ordered it, and the waitress confesses she hadn't registered what I'd asked for and so hadn't passed the order onto the kitchen. Apart from those 2 negatives, everything else about the visit was very pleasant

    Despite booking at 13:00 they had run out of quite a lot of things on the menu and the restaurant was not full! The food was fine but it's annoying to have to settle for something you did not particularly want to eat, just because they have run out of options.

    Lovely food. Really good service. A lovely waitor who was good fun. And lively on a Wednesday night which gave a nice atmosphere.
