Browns Brasserie, Liverpool

Last week, Sam and I went for dinner* at Browns Brasserie in Liverpool - and by the time we got there I was sooooo excited for what was in store. Everyone was SO friendly; the staff couldn't have been more attentive, and they made us feel right at home. The dim lighting and tinted windows gave the place a lovely romantic vibe, and the chairs were comfy, and it was just very nice.

We started off with drinks - diet coke for Sam, and a strawberry & lime Kopparberg for me - while we deliberated over every single item on the menu. In the end, I went for fish & chips (a classic) and Sam had the club sandwich-with-no-tomato, which came with fries, and we got a side of onion rings.

I'll be honest, it wasn't the quickest service ever but it made the experience feel completely chill, so it was fine. When the food did arrive, though, it was so worth it. The piece of fish I had was huge, and the chips were the perfect chunky size. The mushy peas were sweeter than I would have liked, but that's personal preference, and everything was properly cooked. Sam's sandwich was "really good thank you", and the onion rings were okay but they weren't the thick-battered type I like - again, personal preference!

The portions were HUGE, so at this point I was glad we'd skipped out on starters - just enough room for dessert. I went for the chocolate brownie with honeycomb ice cream, which was warm and gooey and definitely got stuck in my teeth more than a few times but was lush. Sam had the salted caramel profiteroles: "really good, would recommend", and they looked gorgeous but I hate cream.

So would I recommend Browns? It's more pricey than I'd pay on a regular basis, but for a treat it's well worth it - gorgeous place, gorgeous food, gorgeous service.

  1. I love Browns! Their food is so nice and the atmosphere is just lovely! I took all the family as a pre-holiday meal last year and they absolutely loved it! Their steak and lobster is pretty special!
