We used to go to Browns offten in Brighton so when we saw there was one in Bath while we were there, we decided to eat there thinking we would get a good meal. When the food arrived the main course was more like a starter. I had five chips with mine. I also ordered a side salad which was... More

We visited last week and had cocktails at the bar before we ate. Being Coeliac I am always concerned over the choice of menu but there was a wide variety of gluten free choices. We had starters and mains but were too full for dessert which was a shame as there were plenty of delicious options to choose from. Our... More

Generally has a good buzz and a beautiful building near river and gardens, central to city. But service terrible. It was saturday lunch nit crowded and the meals and drinks took forever. Get your act together there are plenty of better places to eat in bath.s

Had a lovely brunch here yesterday with friends. Even though we arrived after noon, we could still order of the breakfast mean and all our food was delicious. Our waitress Yee Lin was extremely friendly and helpful, making our visit to brown's very enjoyable.

Came to Browns a few years ago and really enjoyed it. Sadly it's lost its attraction. The building and decor is tired and cheap, our meals were small and mediocre, the service was slow and slapdash. Given how many restaurants there are in Bath, I'd recommend you choose another one rather than be disappointed. Oh and the service charge is... More

Hi Elaine L, We are so sorry to hear about your experience with us. With regards to the décor, we are expecting a refurb later in the year. We are very sorry that you felt the addition of service charge was not worth it; it is an optional charge, only added to try and aid every member of our team... More

We decided to book a table at Browns prior to going to the theatre royal. We were able to take advantage of the early evening menu which had limited but suitable options at a reasonable price. The food was ok but nothing special, particularly as my wife ordered the chicken liver starter and although the quanity was good they were... More

Terrible! Children's menu saw fish and chips covered in salt that they couldn't eat. Swapped it for a burger that caused upset as the difference in size between two burgers for two small boys was clearly 'so unfair!' Nicolas salad was so drenched in salt it also was inedible (the chef agreed and we weren't charged). My beetroot Quinou salad... More

I came here yesterday for a Valentine's date night with my boyfriend, and after having previously read such mixed reviews on Trip Advisor, I was a little concerned. As it was Valentine's evening I assumed that it would be very busy and would have expected some delays or slightly "rushed off their feet" waiting staff. However, this was anything but... More

Hi Charlotte S, Thank you for taking the time to leave us this great review. Yee Lin is an absolute star and was very happy to read this, says she is so sorry she forgot your spoon! As it should have been provided with the tagliatelle. Thank you again, we hope to see you soon. Warm regards More

Called in for moules and frites at lunchtime along with a couple of glasses of wine. Food was excellent, fresh moules cooked in cider were delicious. Very good service and pleasant atmosphere. Will be back.

Hi Nikki J, We are so sorry to hear that this happened. Having investigated the long wait for your drinks, it was due to the staff desperately looking for the bottle of wine you ordered. With regards to the food, it is very disappointing for us to hear you didn't get your first choice as well! Again, having investigated this,... More
