A landmark in this picture-perfect city, Browns Brasserie & Bar – Oxford was the second Browns restaurant to open, just across the road from St Giles Church. Tucked away in a terrace of 18th-century houses, the brasserie serves a good choice of European-inspired dishes, and thirst-quenching cocktails.

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 - Oxford is a 15-minute walk from Oxford Rail Station.

    Lovely experience. Went for lunch with our daughter just before leaving her for uni life. We had a set meal deal for £19.95 which included a choice of two courses and a glass of Proseco. A lovely atmosphere and very pleasant staff. Will definitely go again when we visit next time.

    I booked table for afternoon tea for 3 people at 5 o'clock. After being seated, waitress informed me that afternoon tea had finished, I explained that I had booked so she went to check with chef. came back to inform me that Chef was willing to do afternoon this time but that in future I would not be served if I arrived at 5pm! We were then presented with brioche rolls whose filling was so sparse, we had to open rolls to see what was actually inside (yet another disappointment). We were also given just two pots of tea (3 people) and told that there wasn't room for another pot on the table but that waitress would be back with refills. The raspberry on top of one of the deserts had mould on and the glass on one of the other deserts was cracked right down one side. The scones were stale too. However, two hours later the waitress had not even been back to ask how our food was, let alone offer refills for our tea. Eventually, having seen other tables being regularly asked if everything was ok with their food, we decided to simply go to bar area to pay. Yet again we were not asked if everything was ok with our food and the waitress then showed up to take payment, but no apology for lack of attention or asked if everything was ok. This was booked as a treat for my daughters birthday and what a disappointment that turned out to be. needless to say I did not leave a tip and certainly have no intention of booking in future. In my opinion it was £45 completely wasted!

    Just lovely! I used to go to Browns in Oxford 25 years ago and chose this as a reunion dinner with friends. It did not disappoint and just as lovely as ever. Happy staff , great food, and lovely surroundings. The trio of chocolate pudding was so good ! Go go go, if you are in town
