    Browns was excellent, good quality food at a reasonable price. Great Service in a beautifully ornate building. This was a pre-concert meal and was well worth the short walk from Victoria Station.

    Beautiful decor! Lovely staff. Ordered beef burger and chips. Burger could have been more tender but was reasonably cooked. I wasn’t too keen on the sauce inside the burger… maybe mustard I’m not sure. Lovely experience overall.

    We love Browns, we're always welcomed with a smile and asking how we are. The service is amazing too. See you soon!!

    Expensive for what it is… they have crammed the most tables into this place as possible. It was extremely loud and uncomfortable to be so packed into a small area. Seemed to be more profit driven than customer satisfaction. Sadly. Also the staff could not be more polite. I won’t be returning

    Our first visit but it won't be our last. The food was good but the fishcakes should have been served with fries or potatoes. Serving them with only salad is not sufficient or value for money. Isabella was excellent as were all the staff. The person who greeted us at the door was rather subdued towards our arrival and did not create the ideal first impression. I do not want to overplay this and no one should be reprimanded but a smile sends a powerful message.

    Back again. Third time in three months, so they must be getting something right. Starts off with an interesting building. A bit cavernous at lunchtime but will seem quite airy in the summer. Food and service good without being pretentious. I would like a selection of real ale but wine and cocktails are great.

    The restaurants beautiful and ambience excellent-staff were lovely too only complaint we had was we booked this two months ago with the fork for a three coursed festive meal for £18.99 when we got there the set menu wasnt available and no festive dinner!! Huge disappointment and it cost us over double the price and no turkey dinner!!!!

    We used to go to Brown's in Brighton many years ago, just after it opened. It did food for starving students. This is much more upmarket in food and ambience, but still excellent food and service. We booked for the set lunch,but ,as we were early and they just seemed to be doing a festive lunch, we had an omelette and a lobster Benedict. And quite a few brilliant cocktails. Chocolate and orange martini gets my vote. We will be back in the new year.

    A really nice night out for us. The restaurant is in a beautiful old banking hall and thew tables are well spaced out so there's a buzz but you have some privacy too. Food was excellent as was the service.

    An excellent venue. Manchester was really busy so on the off chance we went to browns early as everywhere was busy for a drink and they said your table is ready you can have a drink there ???? great service and food and the service was attentive ????

    Excellent food = beautifully cooked belly pork. Staff polite and attentive. Some tables were too dim (particularly as i was alone and wanted to read) but the staff were happy to move me to a brighter table. All in all i would eat there again.
