Twelve of us enjoyed an excellent dinner at Browns in Town on the Strand Road in Derry. The food, wine and service were all exceptionally good. Will certainly return soon.

Visited here on Saturday night. Table of 6. The restaurant was very busy on arrival and we were greeted straight away and had a cocktail in the waiting area. The waitress who looked after us at our table was lovely and polite, Seanan and the food was enjoyed by everyone. We will definitely be back. Great night

We had a great meal here on Saturday evening with the girls. I had a prawn risotto to start and the burger for main. The risotto was delicious and creamy. The burger was tasty and chargrilled. I was too full for dessert but two friends had the chocolate fondant which was sublime. Great service, lovely wine and very reasonably priced.

The restaurant is in central position in Derry. Comfortable and spacious layout with good spacing between tables .service was attentive and efficient. Food was generally good but prices disproportionately high for that standard.

Myself, my wife, daughter, her husband and four grandchildren had a family meal in Browns which was delicious. The seating is fairly open plan but at the same time private. We were greeted very warmly on arrival and younger children were provided with colouring in pages and crayons. Our group chose starters which included soup, goats cheese on brown bread... More
