Restaurant description

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

    Lovely food (I had the lobster risotto-delicious), the service was slightly hap-hazard. We ate a late lunch at 4pm so perhaps we were in between shifts?

    Very disappointing. Deal booked was standard early evening meal with not much choice. Fish batter over done yet fish not fully cooked inside! Gone seriously down hill.

    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.
