Brawn is located on Columbia Road in Bethnal Green. A busy, local neighborhood restaurant and bar serving food that is honest and simple, within the season, and sourced through as many local suppliers and producers within our community. On Sundays when the flower market is in full swing, we cook Sunday Lunch for £25 per head. The table is filled with a selection of starters, then a roast followed by pudding. A perfect way to spend Sunday’s! Brawn opened in late 2010 to great critical acclaim receiving 5 stars from Fay Maschler in the Evening Standard, and a Michelin Bib Gourmand in 2011.
£25 and under

We came here for lunch on a rainy February day. The restaurant looks slightly non-descript from the street and inside the minimalist theme continues with clean white walls and compact tables. However with some good tunes playing in the background, buzzy atmosphere and friendly staff, Brawn is immediately relaxing.
The menu is presented tapas style with our waitress recommending 2-3 per...more
