Once a part of the Bristol Museum & Art Gallery, the building housing Browns Brasserie & Bar Bristol is modelled on the Doge’s palace in Venice, and is situated just next to the prestigious University of Bristol. Part of the landscape of this vibrant city, the brasserie serves a menu of British and European-inspired cuisine in a lively, friendly environment.

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, 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 Bristol is just a 15-minute walk from Clifton Down Rail Station.

    Our waitress through the evening was fantastic and the environment was lovely - however foodwise, the chicken added to our salads was really tough, rubbery and poorly cooked. The tuna in the salad nicoise was extremely salty too. I was glad of the 25%discount I'd found on bookatable before I booked.

    Arrived at 7pm for our booking, were greeted politely and shown to a table. We were given 5 different menus and waitress was unclear which menu corresponded with the deal we had booked (£19.95 for 2 courses + 1 drink). We waited over half an hour, in a restaurant which was very quiet, for our order to be taken. We were not offered anything to drink or eat prior to our order. We were almost at the point of leaving. We asked for some water when we finally ordered, but had to ask again after another 15 minutes, as nothing was forthcoming. When our meal finally came, at least 50 minutes after we arrived, even though the main wasn't what we had ordered, we accepted it and it was wonderful!
    The waitress was polite and very pleasant, but we were disappointed in the length of time of service and felt initially ignored.
    The food was excellent, but we felt the establishment was let down by the poor initial service.

    Six friends enjoyed a very nice Christmas meal at Browns in Queens Road last night. When we arrived for our meal we were greeted nicely and shown at once to our table, the bar area was packed so we had our first drinks at the table. The food was good, hot and plenty of it. The desserts were delicious and the cheese board very generous. The staff were friendly and attentive without being pushy, it was an extremely busy night in the restaurant and every request was dealt with quickly without fuss. Thank you to everyone involved for making our first visit for many many years so memorable. It was very noisy, but then it is nearly Christmas!
