Absolutely lovely afternoon tea, all tasted really nice. Enough to get rid of your hunger but not loads. Very happy with price of food but when bill arrived had to take away points as we couldn't understand why the bill was so high for two...More

Alice was very attentive, friendly and provided quick service. Good food-lunch menu 2 for £11.95 (Mon-Fri till 7pm) is good value for money.

We stopped by at Brown's for some High Tea. The Tea was lovely, the eats were well presented, but lacked any love and finishing touches and in some cases even flavour. Perhaps a refresh of this serving needs to be considered. We got what we...More

A lovely early brunch for three of us including the 6yr old grand baby. He loved his pancake stack with yoghurt and fresh fruit. My GF smashed avocado on GF bread was great and my husband's scrambled egg with smoke salmon was a triumph. Lovely...More

There is on street parking around the area, but you will be lucky not to have to walk a few minutes.

The Browns building in Bristol is modelled on the Doge's Palace in Venice and was once part of the outstanding Bristol Museum and Art Gallery. It was restored to its former glory in 1992 and is now very much part of the landscape. Bristol is a city of bridges, boats and beautiful churches with the stunning Georgian Queen Square at the centre and the world famous Clifton Suspension Bridge on the cliffs of the Avon Gorge. So come and join us at Browns for a great atmosphere, delicious food, sparkling fizz and cool cocktails!
