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. As of January 2019 in the interest of work life balance for our dedicated team, we will be closing 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.

We had a great night at Brawn for my girlfriends birthday. The tiramisu really is fantastic, as is the wine list.

Generally a good experience.
Taste & presentation of the meal was satisfactory for the price but quantity left something to be desired.
My only gripe was that my wine was not room temp: it was unquestionably chilled.
For the standard of quality this restaurant purports to be, I should not have to be told that it's because the cellar is cold "...Just let sit for a couple of minutes..." I'm no connoisseur on these matters but I think this is a basic faux pas which left me feeling underimpressed.

We made our booking for Brawn rather spontaneously and we were oh so impressed by the entire experience. Wonderful farm-to-table style menu with well-conceived dishes that delighted. The wine list is extensive, and our server helped us in selecting a wonderful bottle of skin contact wine that we thoroughly enjoyed. This is a new go-to for a nice meal, and I look forward to many more visits :)

Great dinner once again in one of the best dining spaces in London. Food was incredible especially the pheasant ravioli. Only slight disappointment was that a few wines were no longer available but we got there in the end!

Warm and considerate welcome in a rough edged venue, cosy and friendly atmosphere. Food good to very good, wines are a matter of opinion - low sulphur, minimum interventionist and proudly so, it is a bit of an aquired taste. Off the beaten tracks for our part - the road we took to get there was long and winding. Will definitely consider visiting again next time in town.

There are two rooms and the one immediately by the entry door is quite cold. The food was good but did not blow me away. We did not try any of the pork dishes which brawn is known for.
