What Insiders Are Saying
Brawn in Shoreditch might be one of the city’s best neighbourhood restaurants. One that might even make you want to change neighbourhoods.
Absolutely couldn’t fault the experience. Perfect food, service and pace. First time here and can’t wait to come back.
We had a lovely lunch celebrating my partner's 30th birthday, the staff were friendly, knowledge and attentive without being overbearing and the food was delicious. I consistently recommend Brawn to friends as a fantastic restaurant
Absolutely brilliant food, great wine list and fantastic service - helpful, friendly and knowledgable staff.
We cannot fault the food, everything was absolutely delicious. The highlight was the asparagus with egg yolk and walnuts which so good my husband ordered another portion. So pleased to have homemade drinks offered too, as while I enjoy alcohol I can't tolerate much, the ginger beer was delicious, as were the wines by the glass. Staff all very knowledgeable and helpful a real neighbourhood gem.
An absolute gem of a restaurant in every aspect. In my top 5 favourite London restaurants
Excellent food. Service just a titch slow. Fairly priced and interestingly curated wine list
Very nice local spot with an exciting menu and outstanding food.
Really nice (natural) wines list, tasty food & high quality service.
Really friendly staff!
Great food, great service, and brilliant wine choice, quite expensive. Very cold inside!!!
Absolutely loved it. I'd say the mains are on the pricey side for what they are, but a really lovely evening.
We went there for my husband’s bday after having it recommended by a friend. We really didn’t enjoy it. The restaurant was super noisy, the menu layout is not clear and if you want to charge your clients for the service maybe service shouldn’t just be: get the order, serve the food, take a payment! Charging £6 for a tiny plate with few slices of sausage on it is also quite surprising.
I would rather call it a pub then a restaurant.
Delicious but incredibly loud for an afternoon. Great food and wine selection.
everything was great except the table was only available for us from 7 to 9 so we didn't have time to finish the dinner in a normal relaxing way. Considering the prices and level I think the limited time should be discussed at the time of booking
The food was fantastic and quite original, cooked to perfection. All the flavours were very clear and complemented each other perfectly, and every dish had a touch of reinvention and original approach that made the experience very interesting. All ingredients felt remarkably fresh
Not a cheap restaurant, but in my opinion quality, service and care for the food and customer well justified the price.
A note in particular for the service, that was always attentive and precise without ever being invasive. Free tap water, sparkling and non, was always replaced once finished, and advice on plates and availability was provided while engaging with the customer in a pleasant way.
I wasn't honestly impressed by the wines available on the glass/caraffe, i think they lacked the taste and character that the food had in abundance, and so felt a bit undermined. I didn't try the wines by the bottle in this occasion, where the choice looked better and more adequate.
Overall, a splendid experience that I am looking forward to repeat soon
Absolute exceptional meal. One of the best I’ve had in the past year.
As always Brawn was great. It is one of our favourite places in London. The food is outstanding, the wine is delicious and the service is fantastic. Always great to come back.
Birthday at Brawn. Amazing as always.
Lovely evening with great food and very good wine list, mostly organic, natural and orange. Will come again.
Really loved the ambiance and a little magical Hide-away. I can’t wait to return there to try more of the menu
Back again after 1+ years and still as lovely as I remember it to be. Staff were helpful & professional, ambience was lovely & we had a nice view of the open kitchen, and the food was excellent — especially the turbot, simply spectacular! Also, can I get some of that butter to take away the next time please?
Everything about our dining experience was top notch. From the restaurant taking our booking request (I had asked for a table out of the way as I was with my elderly mother) to the service, ambience and food. Outstanding all round. I shall most definitely be back.
Excellent meal in this great restaurant. Sat in full view of the kitchen which was fun for a change. Excellent chicory and blue cheese salad and fresh asparagus. Mains of pork and lamb tender and beautifully presented. Good cheese selection and excellent wine wine complemented the company
The venue can get very busy at weekends, very noisy, had to wait 20mins to be seated, almost an hour to order, the food came fast enough, it tasted great but the overall experience and lack of customer care doesn't justify the cost
Food was so delicious and such a cute romantic restaurant will definitely be back
Excellent food and service
The food was incredible! The service was excellent!
The food, the ambiance and the staff were all top notch. Consistently, one of the best spots in London.
It appears simple but it is masterfully complicated to create.
Great food and corkage is a reasonable 20 quid, service was somewhat lack luster until we announced we fancied pudding but were approaching the end of our 2 hour slot - at which point the service took a shot in the arm and was incredibly fast
Absolutely Delicious food! Perfect atmosphere and the best staff!
I've eaten at Brawn three times now and am yet to be disappointed by a dish. The service and drinks were also very good. The deserts though would have been much better at half the size and half the price.
We had an awesome dinner at Brawn. The food is delicious, the service was great and they had a large wine selection.
Everything was beyond delicious. The service was very attentive, everything was cooked perfectly
Always a pleasure. Freshest of ingredients and wholesome, delicate execution. Each dish is perfect. The staff is welcoming and professional, and the ambience intimate.
Had been here once before and unfortunately my second visit didn't at all live up to the first. For such an interesting menu (especially wine menu) the service really should be improved. The staff was completely unhelpful in pointing us towards drinks/answering our questions about food. And the dishes also were a bit off... we came away saying how it was the best smoked eel we'd had in our lives but unfortunately the accompanying salad was so bad that we forgot how good the food was. Decent place, but the food really is not what it should be.
The food was out of this world. Service was wonderful, happy and helpful.
The only down side was, an obnoxiously load table of to ladies behind us, but this is not the restaurant fault. All way love coming here and is my number one place I tell people to go in London.
Just generally good
Excellent as always.
Brawn is hands down my favorite restaurant in London. And I’ll always visit. Best food best wine best staff
Really great food and service. Can’t wait to go back.
