Came to Browns a few years ago and really enjoyed it. Sadly it's lost its attraction. The building and decor is tired and cheap, our meals were small and mediocre, the service was slow and slapdash. Given how many restaurants there are in Bath, I'd recommend you choose another one rather than be disappointed. Oh and the service charge is... More

We decided to book a table at Browns prior to going to the theatre royal. We were able to take advantage of the early evening menu which had limited but suitable options at a reasonable price. The food was ok but nothing special, particularly as my wife ordered the chicken liver starter and although the quanity was good they were... More

Terrible! Children's menu saw fish and chips covered in salt that they couldn't eat. Swapped it for a burger that caused upset as the difference in size between two burgers for two small boys was clearly 'so unfair!' Nicolas salad was so drenched in salt it also was inedible (the chef agreed and we weren't charged). My beetroot Quinou salad... More

I came here yesterday for a Valentine's date night with my boyfriend, and after having previously read such mixed reviews on Trip Advisor, I was a little concerned. As it was Valentine's evening I assumed that it would be very busy and would have expected some delays or slightly "rushed off their feet" waiting staff. However, this was anything but... More

Called in for moules and frites at lunchtime along with a couple of glasses of wine. Food was excellent, fresh moules cooked in cider were delicious. Very good service and pleasant atmosphere. Will be back.

Me and my partner decided to have a later dinner and were sat in the restaurant. One orher table finishing off their food and one other paying. As we didnt have much time before the kitchen closed we chose quite quickly and awaited our waiter. As they had no desire to come over to us and take our order we... More

We called into Browns for lunch on Saturday. The staff were attentive and friendly. We ordered from the bar snack menu and our food arrived quickly. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal and thought that for 3 dishes for £11.95 it was really good value for money. The only negative comment is that some if the seating needs to be replaced... More

Conveniently positioned near the centre of the Town, Browns is a large , quirky building of angles on at least 2 floors. Staff are attentive and the food of an acceptable level at £75 for 2 courses for 2 adults with only one of them drinking wine by the glass. The menu is extensive. We would return not expecting to...

Five of us visited last night Saturday 4th Feb. Food quality vs price is not great. A few of our group had the steak pie. A bowl of pre made pie filling with a pastry top baked into the dish. It came with a small amount of bubble and squeak mash, and nothing else. We had to order extra chips... More
