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 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 - Edinburgh is a 15-minute walk from Haymarket Rail Station.

    Browns is a lovely restaurant. But the service was very slow at our table. We sat quite a while before asked if wanted a drink and ask for mayonnaise but it never came. The food was lovely as always A Coupar

    I have dined at a lit of top restaurants around the world and me experience at Brows was in the top range. From the waitress who was happy, helpful and had a lovely manner to the food which was first class. I will definitely be visiting your restaurant again soon.

    We had a table booked for 14.00. We were served within 12 minutes of arriving (even the waitress) made a comment on how quick we were served .I had Sunday lunch and my husband had fish and chips. Everything on my plate including the gravy was cold. The only "warm" thing on my plate was the roast potatoes. The fish and chips were just 2 large fish fingers.We were in and out within 40 minutes. Maria was a fantastic host though.The quickest £50 I have ever spent!
