I booked at table to celebrate my birthday with some friends. I have been to browns many times in the past, usually for celebrations as I have thought so highly of the place.

It took an hour for our drinks to arrive. When ordering our drinks, the waiter looked confused, suggesting he didn't know the menu properly. We were ordering cocktails but I certainly didn't get what I had asked for.

As it was my birthday celebration, I had a voucher for a bottle of prosecco. He said he would come back and sort it out but never did. We asked another waitress but she rudely said she wouldn't serve us and we would have to wait to be served by the original waiter.

We must have been waiting for 2 hours until we got served food. I had to get up and find my waitor (as he never came to check on the table) to ask how much longer the food would be.

I ordered the Steak and Guinness pie and was expecting it to be infused with bone marrow rather then an unsightly fatty bone being stuck in the middle of my pie.
My friend pasta was cold and prawns in the pasta were grey, suggesting they were still raw. After waiting for 2 hours for food she was too hungry to send it back.

I never received any acknowledgment or apology.

I was planning on staying longer for desserts and more cocktails but we couldn't have asked for the bill faster.

It is such a shame, as I have always loved coming here. After this experience I will not be returning back, especially on a saturday, because they clearly cannot handle being busy.

We booked Browns as part of a catch-up with friends. We went with Browns as the one in Birmingham which i have been to before was excellent. Food arrived stone cold for 3 out of 4 meals and portions were TINY. My mussels were stone cold (i see others have complained of this too), but were replaced. My partners duo or lamb was TINY and also cold, so swapped for a burger and a steak was really poor quality. My creme brullee for pudding was lovely, but 2 who had the banoffee pie really didn't enjoy it at all. Just so disappointed. HOWEVER - i cannot praise the staff enough. We had a hugely reduced bill, all the our complaints were dealt with with a smile and just the right level of banter throughout.

Ate breakfast at Browns Brasserie today. It was only average. Service was so slow - only one chap working the bar, taking orders, serving. But this was Ok as we were out early & not in any rush. Another table who arrived after us clearly were in a hurry & left without ordering.
Another waiter did arrive & service sed up a bit. But had a bit of a wait for coffee & our food. My avocado & feta on sourdough was nice enough, but not so nice that I'd rush back & order it again.
Sadly, Browns has been pretty hit & miss for us over the last few months.. today was definitely a miss...
