Restaurant description

Situated on George Street, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the centre of the 18th-century town, Browns Brasserie & Bar – Edinburgh is a lively venue offering seasonal Scottish dishes, European cuisine, and a variety of colourful cocktails. With pavement dining during the warm months, and contemporary interiors, the building fits right in among neo-classical houses and pretty Georgian squares.

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.

    I had the lunch / early evening meal. Good value and good food. Early evening was rather quiet but very enjoyable all the same

    I had a fully vegan birthday lunch here which was delicious, well presented and fairly priced. Service good without overdoing it. Recommend you ask for the lunch menu.

    Starter ( beetroot hash) was very good balance of flavours. Pie not so good - casserole with a crust on top. Overall good and would go back Waiter was very helpful and knowledgeable.

    Have been coming to the Browns in Edinburgh for years but I have to say it's gone a lot down hill. The restaurant looks really shabby, the service was poor and the presentation of the food itself was a little lacklustre. Won't be visiting in the future.

    Service was average, cleanliness could have been better, food was average
