Visited here yesterday and popped in for a drink. We were asked if we wanted food to which we said no and were pointed to sit in the bar. This area was very dark so asked if we could sit in the restaurant by the window. This was no trouble and the young girl changed the table for us. Food... More

At £7.95 this is surprisingly good value in bath for what you get. The wait was a bit long and I don't think that watercress was necessary.

We had lunch, both our meals were delicious. Slightly expensive for the portion size but that's because were used to getting huge portions these days. The portions were reasonable, I wouldn't say they were small. The food was very tasty and excellent quality. Menu was great, brilliant range. Staff were friendly. Facilities were nice. Mocktails were delicious. Recommend it for... More

Called into Browns for cocktails at lunchtime on a relative quiet March Wednesday. It was busy but not packed. Cocktails were good, service indifferent. Fancied the belly pork so went back early evening for a meal. Told there was no belly pork, no lamb, no fish cakes....in fact the delightful hardworking waitress/manager gave us a handwritten list of the food... More

Hi there suej, We are so so sorry for the very limited menu that day. Even though there absolutely no excuses, we had had some stock issues that evening due to how unexpectedly busy the day was. To hear that the food you did choose, after all that, was not up to scratch saddens us even more. We completely understand... More

What dreadfully run place. No one knows what's going on who's responsibility is what. So things are either duplicated or completely forgotten - No order taken for 25 mins More people walked out than stayed as just got fed up waiting and we're advised by other customers to leave Get the wrong bill Thry bring some drinks and forget others...

Hi JamesB. We are so sorry to hear about this. Your order should have been taken long before 25 minutes had passed, forgotten drinks and being given the wrong bill also should not have happened. We would love to have the opportunity to make this up to as this is absolutely not the standards we aim for. Please contact us... More

I should start by saying i love Browns. I have been eat g at Browns restaurants since the mid 80's when we used to go to the one in Oxford. Unlike the restaurants because despite being a chain, they all feel slightly different. The staff are well trained and friendly The food is great - for years I have been... More

The restaurant was very busy as the rugby was on so we had a 45 minute wait for a table. A friend got a watery fish pie which was sent back. I got the salted pork belly, which was quite nice apart from the savoury apple pie which just wasn't nice and the pork crackling was just one extremely hard... More

Hi glunt, We do get extremely busy on rugby Saturdays so there can be a long wait for a table if you haven't booked. We are so sorry to hear that the food was average.

The food was quite tasty but we were pleased that we hadn't order the 'light lunch' as the main course was no more than a starter size. Also, the beer tasted as if it was bottled. The place has deteriorated greatly since our last visit 2 years ago. Wouldn't go back.

We visited on a very wet Monday evening and were surprised how quiet it was, with us being the only customers at the time. That said we had no problems with the service and the waitress was very friendly, as you would expect with no other customers. The food was good and reasonably priced but like most restaurants the drinks... More

Hi JohnnyExile, We are very pleased to hear you enjoyed your experience with us. You are absolutely right, the start of the week is much quieter for us during this time of the year, especially when the weather's not very nice. We aim to deliver this service no matter how busy it is, so hope to see you again soon!... More
