A pleasant stroll away from London Bridge, Browns Brasserie & Bar Butler’s Wharf boasts a gorgeous decked terrace for sun-drenched al fresco dining by the river, complete with great views across to Tower Bridge. In this up-market area of London, Browns serves delicious European-inspired cuisine in a lively, friendly atmosphere.

Spanning from breakfast through to lunch and dinner, the Browns menu offers all-day brasserie dining. Indulgent plats du jour and Sunday roasts are staple favourites, while sumptuous European flavours include lobster tagliatelle, the wild boar & chorizo burger, or steak pie with buttered mash and broad beans. A sophisticated children’s menu at Browns offers tempting favourites with a grown-up twist.

Showcasing a penchant for cocktails, the Browns bar offers an array of classic mixes, signature concoctions and thirst-quenching mocktails, as well as fine world wines, smoothies and creamy milkshakes. Enjoy Browns’ afternoon tea and cake accompanied freshly-roasted coffee from an independent supplier, or a warming pot of loose leaf tea.

Browns Brasserie & Bar Butler’s Wharf in Bermondsey is just a 15-minute walk from Tower Hill Tube Station.

    The location is great, just by the river and away from the tourist crowds. We had a champagne afternoon tea and the food, bubbly and tea was delicious! Would definitely recommend it. Unfortunately we weren't so lucky with our waiter. We didn't get any water and he forgot parts of our order twice. When we asked for the bill it took him ages to come back for the payment. Not the friendliest guy either.

    Our experience was extremely disappointing. Having booked in advance and phoned to confirm the booking we arrived to be told we had 45 mins to eat and be off the table. At no point was this made clear when booking. Added to that the front of house staff kept us waiting five minutes for the table, being on the phone and ignoring our arrival.
    On placing our order we were told that a basic items on the menu were not available. The hot food we ordered was delivered cold and a number of items were missing. The coffee was weak and sloppy.
    The meal was a special occasion which was ruined as a result. We have successfully visited Browns in other locations. We have had lovely meals in those outlets and hence tried this one. This one is, however, seriously lacking. We will not be returning to this outlet.

    My friend and I enjoyed our meal. The service was outstanding. Nice welcome when we arrived. We were shown to our table and was given time to settle at our table before we were asked what we would like to drink. We were not rushed in between courses. Quality and presentation of the good was outstanding. Staff were lovely too.

    I have dined at this restaurant several times and I have always had a nice time. I have recommended this restaurant to friends who have also said they have enjoyed dining here too.

    Lovely views of the river Thames. Some of the staff are friendly, but it is slow, booked afternoon tea for 2-30 and it arrived 45 minutes later. Also you only get one cup of coffee and then you pay for any extra cups. I have never known this before and the waitress explaining this was really abrupt "it is up to you take it or leave it". Food was good value for money.

    The starters were very good- crab and avocado stack and devilled mushrooms. Main courses were less well-received: crab and prawn liguine was cold, so went back then didn't taste of anything; chicken was adequate but lumpy gravy; duck salad- sparing amount of duck. The waitress was delightful- friendly and efficient. We found this on our previous visit too- staff all very good.

    Poor service

  • ((*** 12 July 2016 by Rob Hunt from London Borough of Southwark

    Great location overlooking the river. Been here many times before so know what to expect or thought I did.

    They forgot our starters and served mains. Apologetic but poor. Food luke warm and not that tasty.

    It was a busy Saturday night and the service team couldn't cope. Not in a rush to go back!
