Brawn is located on Columbia Road in Bethnal Green. A neighborhood restaurant and bar cooking food that is within the season and sourced through as many local suppliers and producers within our community. On Sundays when the flower market is in full swing, we cook Sunday Lunch for £28 per head. The table is filled with a selection of starters, then a main course followed by pudding. A perfect way to spend Sundays.
Brawn opened in late 2010 to great critical acclaim receiving 5 stars from Fay Maschler in the Evening Standard, and a Michelin Bib Gourmand in 2011.

Brawn Ratings and Reviews
This was my 4th time at Brawn over the last couple of years and I’ll definitely be back- the food is lovely, not huge portions but that’s a good excuse to try all 3 courses! I really like the ambience, which is equally well-suited to either casual dining or a special occasion where you want reliably good food and service without it being stuffy. One of my favourite places in London.
Simple but interesting menu with fresh ingredients. Excellent team of chefs putting lots of care in preparing the food. Every dish is well balanced and very delicious. An impressive wine list with good choices. This will continue to be one of my favourites in London.
Had a cracker evening here. Wine list is well thought out, interesting and the staff are knowledgeable of the offering. Food was intricate and delicious. Came in a group of 6 and all were very impressed. The one thing we all noticed was the food did take quite a while between courses but it's hard to criticise when it's so damm tasty. Cheers for a good night!
It was fascinating seeing from our table the smoothly organised teamwork in the kitchen - it seemed as if everyone knew exactly what they were doing and this was reflected in the delicious, beautifully cooked dishes that made our birthday gathering such a memorable occasion. The table service was excellent and the menu ideal for one meat eater, one fish eater and two vegetarians.
Excellent food and service at reasonable price, great decor and ambience- arty fashionable sort of place raved about by food critics. In trendy area of East London - all my guests delighted by it. Not really a place for a large group- we were 8 - the limit. Very local for me and I will definitely come again, especially for a special occasion. Only caveat- a friend brought me a birthday cake and they wanted to charge a lot to serve it up, so we had to take it away uneaten.
Love it so much that I almost don't want to tell too many people about Brawn. The food is fantastic and the ethos of the chef is transparent in the food. The quality of ingredients, the focus on celebrating them, a considered, subtle but not overly designed presentation and the friendly and professional staff.
The combination of the above when matched with a cosy, non-pretentious, not-too-hipster and relaxed surroundings makes this my favourite restaurant in London.
Everything we had on the short but interesting menu was beautifully cooked. Service was friendly and attentive, and it was a really nice place to meet friends for lunch. I have previously been there for work lunches and, with lots of space ar quiet at lunchtime, it’s great for that too.
Wonderful restaurant in Columbia Road with a great vibe. Friendly and efficient staff, well trained and with solid knowledge of the food and wines they serve. Food was really good and came timely. The ambience is really East London with a buzz you can expect from a no fuss and cozy restaurant. A little gem that we will be visiting much more!
