Brawn is located on Columbia Road in Bethnal Green. A neighbourhood restaurant and bar cooking food that is within the season and sourced through as many local suppliers and producers within our community.

Brawn opened in late 2010 and has held a Michelin Bib Gourmand since then. In 2020, we also opened Brawn Store, which sells a wide selection of our food, wine list and other select items.

    Fantastic Saturday lunch. Prior to arriving I had let the restaurant know that one of our group was a coeliac. When presented with the menu, the suitable options were already ticked which was a nice touch. The decor is very trendy and cool with large windows opening out onto Colombia road. The food was seasonal and fresh with lovely small plates as well as starters and mains. The Parmesan fritters and the melon salad were two highlights as well as the trout and mackerel with cucumber, yum! There was a good selection of wines by the glass as well as 2 types of orange wine, which naturally we had to try. The service was excellent, knowledgeable and friendly. Our lunch bill came to £150 which included a few glasses of wine, 2 coffees and a desert. I have to mention the lovely Aesop hand wash and lotion in the bathrooms.

    Delicious food and great service. It’s just a shame the acoustics are so poor in the space. We could barely hear what each other said. We also questioned the narrow hallway of chairs, where the staff has only 40 cm to squeeze through.

    Starters, and the agnolotti were great, the other 2 mains we did not think were memorable. The dessert was also excellent. Service was good, nice ambient (loved the music in the background) and reasonably priced, we will be back.

    I usually love eating at Brawn. Just this once my pork loin was a bit chewy and bland. Other than that I love the place and will be back.

    Food was a joke and so were the outrageous prices. Chickpeas were crunchy and hadn't been cooked long enough. The pork fillet was actually a thin sliver of salted , very tough, gammon, half of which was fat. Portions were miniscule. Shameful

    We had a great time at Brawn, it was actually the best place we did during our weekend. We had a reservation at 9:45pm and as we were nearby earlier, they managed to get us in at 9pm which was really appreciable. The food was delicious, I recommend the lemon tart... amazing! The service was perfect, people were all nice and smiling. The atmosphere was great too with softened light and not too noisy as we experienced in other places. This place is really worth it!
