Half a century has passed since Browns Brasserie & Bar first welcomed guests through its doors in the charming seaside town of Brighton. Today, the timeless appeal of Browns’ classic seasonal food and signature cocktails can be savoured in locations across the country, each offering a quintessentially British experience steeped in heritage.

Celebrating its enviable status as an iconic British establishment on the UK restaurant scene, Browns is commemorating its remarkable 50th anniversary with a delectable celebration – the Browns 50th Anniversary Afternoon Tea. Since the opening of their first restaurant & bar in Brighton half a century ago, Browns has become synonymous with quintessential British charm and culinary excellence. This special occasion is marked by an array of tantalising savouries, irresistible mini cakes and puddings, and delightful scones, accompanied by slices of their special birthday cake adorned with sprinkles in a delightful raspberry marble design. Notably, Browns is also proud to offer a bespoke Gluten Free Afternoon Tea, accredited by Coeliac UK, catering to guests with those dietary requirements.

Whether shared with friends or family, indulging in the Browns 50th Anniversary Afternoon Tea is an experience enhanced by the opportunity to pair the delectable treats with your choice from a selection of Good Earth teas, each a planet-conscious tribute to natural teas. Alternatively, guests can push the boat out and opt for a chilled glass of Champagne, or one of two fabulously nostalgic 50th Anniversary cocktails, artfully crafted exclusively for this momentous occasion by Browns mixologists.

Savouries: Exquisite Delights to Whet the Appetite

The savoury selection for the special Browns 50th Anniversary Afternoon Tea comprises a variety of meticulously prepared delights.
