Taken at 515pm but drinks order not taken till 532pm. Food when it came was fine enough for a small town pub, not for level expected at city centre location like this. Atmosphere was great though, buzzing. Would not go back anytime soon though sadly

We enjoyed the set menu offering for a post work catch up. The offer was great value for money.

The food was very good, however, the service was quite slow. We were a large group of 10 people but drinks and food took quite a bit of time. Server was very kind but seemed the system wasn’t well done. We went another place the next night with 17 people and had much quicker service.

Slow and confused service - received starter before our first drinks for example.. Food was nice enough and well presented. Hosted too many large groups at one time to ensure a smooth service for other small groups and couples.

Really enjoyed the food, the menu is varied so there were plenty options available. Service was perfect, there when we needed something and not crowding us to leave when we were finished. Definitely recommend.

Food was great - good choices for vegetarian son although when we were presented with the menu we were told of the dishes that were unavailable that day BUT no vegetarian items were discussed even though son had asked and been given the seoerate veg/vegan menu - when we ordered my son was told “that one is off today” so he had to go back to the drawing board - just proving the veggie/vegan isn’t always front of mind - wouldn’t stop us coming back though as food delivered was excellent!

We visited Browns on the Saturday before Christmas. It was very busy which is to be expected but is an encouraging sign. They had sold out of a few menu items. Hopefully that was unusual. The food was very good.

Went with friends visiting from Melbourne and Cork. Food was delivered fast with no time between courses. Restaurant decor is lovely. Food was ok, nothing special.

Seated quickly.
Two dirty glasses sent back within the first 5 mins.
Was not much on the menu as the bar menu was being updated. Ended up with just finger food which was nice but nothing special.
Bar staff brought one drink over at a time, very strange. No straws then came over with straws far too big for the cocktails.

Was disapointed, particularly with the food.
I had the prawn cocktail, it tasted of nothing, there was basically no sauce on the prawns.
Then had the mushroom tagliatelle, mushrooms were nice but again there wasn't any sauce or flavour, had to add a lot of salt. We didn't bother with dessert.
Wasn't a fan of our table, perhaps because we were downstairs felt a bit forgotten.
It was expensive IMO for what it was.

The food was lovely and the staff were very friendly, however it was so busy they were rushed off their feet. Waited 25 minutes to get my drinks order.

There was a failure of the gas supply and a limited menu was offered.
The staff failed to communicate this to us on arrival and the board
outside still showed the lunch offers as normal. Very disappointing
occasion.

The soup when it came was cool but when stirred became warmer, think it had been mircowaved but not stirred.
Our main course and vegetables we sent back due to again being cold. When re - served food was warm and very tasty, unfortunately most of the main course was eaten before vegetables appeared.
We were then overcharged by £20 on the bill.
