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 food choice, lovely surroundings, meals all very tasty, friendly staff, however service was very slow. We were visiting the restaurant for a lunchtime business meeting. After the mains were eventually cleared from the table, nobody asked if we would like dessert or coffee. We waited for a while then attracted the attention of the waiter to ask for coffee. It's shame as other than the service the lunch was very good.

    It was disappointing. The service was poor, on entering we waited some time to be seated. Table was booked for 4 people, when shown to out table it was set for 2, waiter didn't notice. We had to ask to see the menu for desserts and had to ask for coffee. Staff were not attentive. We have been when busier and had a better experience.
