Browns Restaurant & Bar, Bath

Orange Grove

Tel: 44 1225 461 199's insider take:

Although it's a venerable-ish (30-odd-years-old) English chain, Browns is no McDonalds or Starbucks. The brasserie-style restaurants usually occupy interesting, even historic buildings; this one's in a Georgian police station and magistrates' court opposite Bath Abbey, with a former cell serving as a bathroom. The food is hardly ambitious—salmon cakes with mango salsa; steak, mushroom and Guinness pie; brownies and ice cream—but it's reliably good and reasonably priced. In pleasant weather, head for the large terrace of outdoor tables.
