A landmark in this picture-perfect city, Browns Brasserie & Bar – Oxford was the second Browns restaurant to open, just across the road from St Giles Church. Tucked away in a terrace of 18th-century houses, the brasserie serves a good choice of European-inspired dishes, and thirst-quenching cocktails.
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 European flavours include lobster tagliatelle, the wild boar & chorizo burger, or steak pie with buttered mash and broad beans. 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 - Oxford is a 15-minute walk from Oxford Rail Station.

It was so easy to book a table via the website. Arrived early, but table was ready within a few minutes. Food was very good and portion sizes were right, which allowed all 3 courses to be consumed. Service was attentive, but not over bearing.

Ideal birthday lunch setting on a cold wet Sunday in October. Really good customer service, charismatic setting (just a 5-10 min stroll from the city centre) diverse menu and speed of service (for the soggy diners) was exceptional. The Sunday roast option was particularly good and reasonable value for money. Would definitely re-book.

I have been to Browns for the last 20 years on and off. I use daily to work in the old Radcliffe imfirmary and when we finished work myself and some colleagues would go and have a nice relaxing meal usually on payday. I have moved away from Oxford but wanted somewhere that I was familiar with to celebrate my daughters 50th birthday. The food was exepctional we had the set menu 3 courses and a glass of bubbly.

Very busy restaurant and bar , food was okay, not great. Have had better in simulate restaurants. Waiting staff were rushed off their feet. They knew it was my wife’s 50th birthday as wh men booked informed them and told them before being seated. The manager said happy birthday. That was it. We spent over £100 a small gesture would have been appreciated.

Very good. The waiter was very friendly and allowed us to have a leisurely meal without rushing us, asked us to inform him when we were ready for our main course, a lovely lunch and experience.

We had a really lovely time, it was a shame I didn't get offered a drink on the house for my 50th Birthday but the overall experience was great.
