Went to browns for afternoon tea with family friends. It was a surprise for my daughter who recently had a baby. It was very busy but we had pre booked. Food was fine, coffees and teas awful. Coffee served black which was ok but by the time milk sugar teaspoons were brought to the table they were cold. Cappuccino served... More

When arrived there were lots of used plates on the outside tables so we cleared them ourselves (which we accepted as it was busy).

We went here on a Monday Evening food was good and lovely waitress. Menu very reasonably priced. We both had Steaks and they were cooked well and washed down with a lovely bottle of Pinot Grigio. Very relaxed atmosphere and not rushed to finish.

Friendly welcome. Waitress, Greta, was excellent. Food, though perhaps a little pricey was very good.

We started with Camembert, which was melted and lovely. We both had fillet steaks with garlic butter. I had a side order of asparagus which was lovely and tender. We had a bottle of red wine called Billi Billi .

Visited with 3 other friends on a Sunday evening. We all enjoyed our varied meals, 3 courses each (!), very friendly service. Clean, comfortable, and well worth a visit.

Coming from near Oxford, I can remember the fantastic times we had going to the original Browns, and really enjoyed having brunch in this one. The food was very good, as was the service and a lovely view from the upstairs lounge. A great way to start the day !!

Lovely meal under the warm burners overlooking the Abbey and Christmas market served by the very efficient and friendly Amy. Glad to hear you now allow dogs in the outside area but shame there was no ice left for an iced coffee. Will certainly return.
