A warm welcome awaits you at Browns Cambridge

Part of a converted wing of the old Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Browns Brasserie & Bar Cambridge is without a doubt one of the best places to eat in Cambridge. You’ll find us located in the heart of the city close to the Fitzwilliam Museum, we’re just around the corner from the Mathematical Bridge, and close to the River Cam — famous for its punting.

Step inside through the stunning Virginia creeper that frames our entrance and you’ll discover a beautifully decorated, light, airy space with a bustling atmosphere, which is perfect for a spot of lunch in Cambridge. As for those lazy, sunny days, why not relax on our outdoor terrace, gently sipping one of our legendary Bloody Marys?

Be sure to join us for a relaxing, brasserie brunch, lunch, afternoon tea or dinner, made with quality, fresh, seasonal ingredients. Or if you don’t fancy a meal, our expert, friendly team will look after you in our stylish cocktail bar area, where you can enjoy a crafted cocktail (or two), a glass of fine wine, or just Champagne and graze on some of our delicious bar snacks. However you spend your time in our riverside bar, you can be certain it will be time well spent.
