Good food, great wine selection, nice atmosphere. Service ok. But, they didn't honour the 25% discount promised on Bookatable.

Set in a historic city which boasts a 1,400-year heritage, a medieval monastery and 850 listed buildings, Browns Bar and Brasserie – Reading serves delicious European cuisine and signature cocktails in a friendly environment.

    Service was generally good, apart from the fact we hadn't asked for the bill and this was brought to our table making us feel like we had to leave. Especially when we come here quite often and never had that.

    Danilo is an excellent, attentive waiter

    My friends and I enjoyed a relaxing evening at Browns. The staff were attentive even though the restaurant was extremely busy and the atmosphere was buzzing. The food was good although the mains were fairly run of the mill but the desserts had a bit of a twist.

    Poor. No acknowledgement that they had my booking and no greeting or eye contact . Duck salad arrived with no duck. Sirloin was all griddle and had to ask for wafer 3 times. Service received overall well below average.

    Having never eaten at Browns we did wonder what it would be like, but we needn't have worried, from the moment we arrived
    We were well looked after, the waiters did a really good job of looking after us and we all enjoyed the food very much. We will
    definitely be going back.
