5-11 Woodstock Road, Oxford, Oxfordshire, OX2 6HA
Browns in Oxford was our second restaurant to open and is quite a landmark in the city. The building was a Morris garage for many years until we converted it into an English brasserie.
Even though we’re in the city centre, the view from our windows is pure England. We’re just across the road from St Giles Church and a beautiful terrace of 18th century houses.
As with all our restaurants, we offer delicious food, a unique atmosphere and a great choice of wines, beers and cocktails.
Oxford is best explored by foot - some of the architecture, particularly the University buildings, is remarkable and has been the inspiration for many authors such as C S Lewis and Lewis Carroll.
You could join a guided walking tour around the University or follow in the footsteps of Inspector Morse. And no trip to Oxford would be complete without taking a cruise along the river (just like Ratty in The Wind in the Willows). Public cruises run regularly or you could book your very own private boat.
When it comes to museums, art galleries and theatres, you’ll be spoilt for choice; Oxford is renowned for its cultural history and heritage. The recently re-opened Ashmolean is one of the world’s leading museums and now boasts 39 new galleries, 100% more display space and four temporary exhibition galleries.
The Town Hall has two permanent museum galleries that tell the story of Oxford and its residents. You can actually take a virtual high speed bike ride across the city to see its highlights!
From the Oxford Playhouse to international music and dance at The Pegasus, there are plenty of live shows to see. During the summer months, Creation Theatre stages outdoor productions in some unusual venues across Oxford, including a former prison yard.
And with the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside just a stone’s throw away, plus some gorgeous parks and gardens, you could enjoy everything Oxford has to offer and then join us at Browns for drinks, cocktails and a delicious dinner.
