Browns Bar & Brasserie Review

  • Rating Poorest excuse of afternoon tea (Rating 1.4/5)
    I had booked this as part of my mums birthday as the menu for afternoon tea sounded great! It took 30 minutes to prepare once we had ordered. Once it came out I was concerned as it didn’t seem like much was on the stand. Not one server explained to us what was in what sandwich/what one cake was. There were 4 finger sandwiches filled with cucumber and chives with the other filled with coronation chicken and the rest of the fillings were just placed on one finger slice of bread - sad excuse for a sandwich. Upon biting into the bland cucumber and chive sandwich I discovered that the bread was rock solid and this had obviously not been freshly prepared on the day!!! Sadly this was not the experience I’d hoped for at a well known place such as Browns. Especially not for £15 per person! The cakes were tiny apart from the giant slice of sponge and some of the cakes included weren’t even in the stand and were instead replaced with shop bought macaroons. I’ve been for nicer afternoon tea’s for half the price. We decided to send it back and although we were offered another we refused as we were already an hour in the place by this point! After it was taken back not one member of staff came to apologise for the experience. Disappointed, more so as it was part of a day out for my mums birthday. Would not recommend this to anybody!
