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.

Browns Brasserie & Bar - Edinburgh is a 15-minute walk from Haymarket Rail Station.

    Very disappointing. I've been to this restaurant many times and apart from bar staff, the food experience was bad.
    My wife ordered a half chicken meal and it was the dullest, least imaginative meal I have ever seen in a restaurant. Floor staff manner was not good either, with waitress lifting meal plates from table, as if we were finished, just because I called her over to get us more drinks.
    No tip was left as none was earned and I won't be going back.

    Quite disappointing really. Booked a voucher that was to cost £11.95 for two courses. When we got to the restaurant we were told to pick something from the lunch menu at a cost of £10.95!! We queried this and were told that the voucher really applied to England as it is an English company and the same menu was lower in Scotland at £10.95. I thought this was a UK company! We really looked forward to this meal but it was just the ordinary menu - no great deal that is for sure - you don't need to book a voucher - just walk in off the street. We were also told that the menu changed after we booked our voucher - quite a shabby deal. Will not be back!

    The service was not very good either - we waited at least 5 minutes before we were seated and had to prompt service at each course! A very ordinary experience although the food was tasty and well presented

    Best feature was the service and friendliness of our waitress don't have her name

    Food was good and hot.

    The fabric of the building could do with a revamp ( freshen up)
