Situated on George Street, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the centre of the 18th-century town, Browns Brasserie & Bar – Edinburgh is a lively venue offering seasonal Scottish dishes, European cuisine, and a variety of colourful cocktails. With pavement dining during the warm months, and contemporary interiors, the building fits right in among neo-classical houses and pretty Georgian squares.

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 thermidor, Browns classic burger and the Steak & Guiness pie with bubble and squeak & prosciutto ham. 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. Enjoy Browns’ afternoon tea and cake accompanied by freshly roasted coffee from an independent supplier, or a warming pot of loose leaf tea.

    Excellent service. Nice and spacious rooms. The Afternoon tea was really worth its price.

    Went to browns on the 2 courses and a glass of wine offer for 19.95. Little did we know that, that offer wasnt available anymore. We waited over an hour to be told we couldnt have the menu and where given a thursday menu which had 6 items on it from starters to deserts. After not wanting this menu we spoke to the supervisor as we didnt understand why we couldnt have the menu she stated that some items were not available. We then checked and every item on the book a table menu was the same as the al la carte menu just a reduced version. Again this took another 15 minutes it was then sorted and suddenly we were allowed this menu. We got our starters and one starter came wrong so then had to wait another 5 minutes before we received it. The same happened with the mains it went to the wrong table. Was not impressed with the service at all in terms of management and the way they dealt with a complaint. Although our waiter was lovely and was always checking if we where ok. The food was amazing especially the steak. Was disappointed no discount or complimentary drinks where given considering non of this was of fault of our party.

    Horrible, Service was really bad and food inconsistent.

  • (((** 4 March 2017 by Stephen Mack from Edinburgh

    Starters were good, fish pie and lobster risotto were exellent, rib eye steak a bit dry, service and staff very good then the bill came with a 10% service charge already added but it did state on the till receipt that this was optional although it had already been added, spoke to the waiter who was rather embarrased by this and stated it was new and he didn't agree with it as it applied to everthing even a cup of coffee, then spoke with another member of staff who stated it was on the menu she was right at the very bottom in the smallest of small print, I did suggest that staff make patrons aware of this when they ask for the bill she stated that they should, then my husband stated that she was the one that prepared the bill and did not mention it. I would always leave a tip for staff for good food and service but feel the way that this was done would make me think twice about returning.
