We were a walk in for a celebration supper after my son's graduation. The staff were very friendly and helpful explaining the menu and all the special deals on for the day. We had a lovely "tapas" style meal with lots of "small plates" to share. Ir was a really nice atmosphere and good value food which was delicious.

After hearing about the bottomless brunch from a friend, my girlfriend fortuitously managed to book a table here for my birthday. (Usually they are booked months in advance). The venue wasn't what I was expecting but is very nice nonetheless, more like a pub than a restaurant. The food options for the brunch were various and all looked good. We... More

Very disappointed. We were a party of 30 who paid for the bottomless prosecco brunch. On arrival we waited half an hour before being fed or watered at all. We were then given granola In a bottle each and no other food was offered. For the next half an hour 3 more dishes came out, but you were unable to... More

We went here for our Christmas Lunch and I had never heard of it before. Brace & Browns is tucked away slightly and you have to look as I drove past it first of all. The inside is a bit dark but still welcoming. Staff are friendly and and helpful. Food served was very nice and fresh and delivered very... More

We had roasts as part of a group of 18 for a 50th birthday celebration weekend - beef, pork & lamb. All were exceptional! One of the best roasts I've had. The mulled wine was yummy, the room was all Christmassy, & the service was great. For pudding I tried the passion fruit & dark chocolate parfait - exceptional &... More

Because of excellent reviews, brace and brown was chosen for a 40th birthday celebration. The disappointment began with the room which smelt unpleasant. The service was exceptionally slow, so slow in fact that after four hours there was no time for desserts. The roast was the chief let down. It was cold. The Yorkshires were burnt. IEverything was sent back,... More
