The range of food at Browns, the good sized portions, catering for a variety of dietary requirements and tastes makes this a good mid price range restaurant to visit. Right in the heart of the city, with ambient seating inside and plenty of outdoor tables too, Browns is very popular with locals and tourists alike. Are you a cocktail person?... More

Went with my family for a day out in Bath and, on a friend's recommendation, went to Brown's for lunch - big mistake! We got there about 12.30 and, as starters, we ordered the terrine, beef carpaccio, fishcakes and mussels; the only one that was available was the terrine. Which restaurant runs out at the start of lunch service? We... More

This is a huge establishment inside with outside seating/brollies. We enjoyed coffee and cakes. All OK and fairly priced.

The amazing waitress we have (I apologise I do not know her name, but she was Chinese I believe) deserves one star all on her own. We went on a Saturday evening over Easter with my family for a birthday. We were told on arrival that there was no lamb (which my father in law was gutted about!) and I... More

Quite poor from the start, the waitress trying her best, but cold soup never a great start, whole meal disappointing, beware of ordering the courgette ribbons as it is actually pasta tagliatelle served with courgette, not helpful when you are wheat free. Apparently common mistake, I suggest change the menus or better staff training on the menu to advise correctly.... More

Hi David, thank you for taking the time to leave us this feedback. I am very sorry to hear that we let you down so thoroughly on this day.

After visiting the Thermae Spa in Bath the Hens and Bride to Be visited Browns Bar for our afternoon traditional tea. The waitress serving us upstairs was very good and attended to our needs. The food brought out was enjoyable and plentiful, a couple of the drinks took a little longer to arrive but most enjoyable experience thank you.
