Great looking place but not a good dining experience. Our large group had the full gamut of problems - mistaken orders, steaks cooked poorly and not to requested doneness, items not hot enough, side items missing from the plate. Also, most of the steaks were very poor quality meat - expect much better for 20 pounds.

The peppercorn sauce tasted slightly rancid and was a poor, oily effort to...more

Service is not good, although I will come back to try the fish n chips. They did not have any when I was here. The Brown burger was okay. The apple pie was soggy and the custard was too watery. The Manhattan Grill's Apple Crumb and Custard was much better. I would recommend going there. Just right around the corner. If I find another place for fish n chips, I won't be back here.more

Great Sunday roast! I had the beef roast and the trimmings were great with it. Very large selection of drinks and the staff were friendly and helpful. I've been here on numerous occasions for drinks and it definitely is a nice place to hold happy hours and drinks with colleagues or friends.more

I visit Browns regularly because my boyfriend seems to be a fan and as long as you avoid Friday and Saturday nights, they're more or less empty. It's also located in a nice area, right off West India Quay (near Canary Wharf).

That's kind of where the positives of Browns ends. It's not a proper bar, not a proper pub, and not quite a proper restaurant either. The food on offer is alright, but...more
