Restaurant description

Close to the theatre, in the centre of a shopping hub, Browns Brasserie & Bar Brighton is housed in two separate buildings: one for the bar, one for the restaurant. Set in the city where Browns opened its first restaurant in 1973, the brasserie is mentioned and recommended by Bill Bryson in his book, ‘Notes from a Small Island’.

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 flavours include roasted lamb with potatoes & minted peas, Browns’ signature fish pie, and decadent salted caramel profiteroles. 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, and smoothies. 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 Brighton is just a 10-minute walk from Brighton Rail Station.

    Excellent food and excellent service. Booked on line, which seemed to have been unrecorded. However the staff dealt with this very well.

    We ate at Browns on a busy Saturday night but it was a lovely experience. Very friendly and expert waiting staff (Taragh), lovely food and a great atmosphere. Will definitely eat there the next time we're in Brighton.

    Food is always good, and they will adapt menu for any special requests, I.e. Dairy/gluten free. Service slightly slow but reflected in bill by not charging for coffee s.

    Have not been back to Browns (and Brighton) for a few years so thought it would be interesting to see if they were still as good. Answer? Yes they are. Friendly welcome and explained menu and drink options. Good comfortable seating seating. Nice choice of starters and mains and reasonably priced wine. The dishes very good, especially my fish pie and again very good service from the wait staff, so all in all a very good lunch.

    Loved the round table for socialising with group of friends. Shame it was so quiet because of bad weather.
