Housed in the converted Athenaeum, Browns Brasserie & Bar – Manchester serves a delicious menu of hearty European food and thirst-quenching cocktails in a vibrant, contemporary atmosphere. Designed in 1902, the building incorporates Edwardian baroque architecture with eye-catching art-nouveau detailing, such as intricate wrought-iron work.

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 - Manchester is a 15-minute walk from Salford Central Rail Station. Manchester Arndale Shopping Centre is just a 5-minute walk away.

    I attended for afternoon tea for my mums birthday. I was impressed with the venue from the moment I walked in. Lovely decor and it felt like everything was going to be of a high standard and it was. The afternoon tea was lovely, great choice of sandwiches and cakes, certainly very filling. Staff were friendly and attentive. Would definitely recommend and return to experience lunch or dinner.

    A little disappointed. NO bottle opener at the bar staff a little rude. hardly any prawn and crab in one dish and not much samphire in another.. overall had a pleasent night just a felt a little let down due to it being my daughter's 18th and out with family.
