Dinner at Browns West India Quay

Last weekend my boyfriend and I went for dinner in Browns West India Quay. If you haven't already heard of Browns, it is a chain of restaurants across the UK and each of the restaurants are found in unique building or spaces with their own history. 

The Browns building in West India Quay used to be a sugar warehouse built in the 19th century. It is an absolutely gorgeous unique building with a huge seating area outside overlooking the dock. Unfortunately it was raining when we went so we couldn't sit outside which I was really disappointed about, but I took a few pictures to show how nice it looked.

When we arrived the first thing I did was have a look at the cocktail menu, they had so many different ones it was hard to choose! I started with a French Martini which was absolutely gorgeous, I was impressed with how high quality the cocktail was as you don't always get this in a restaurant. 

For our starter we decided to go for a sharing platter and it was definitely the right choice, everything on the platter was absolutely lovely and we finished it so quickly. There was prawn cocktail, chicken drumsticks, squid rings, pulled pork rillettes and garlic and lemon humous. My favourite was probably the squid - it was so tasty!

There was so much I liked the look of for the main course, they have a really big selection of options on the menu so there's definitely something for everyone. I decided to go for lobster linguine - it was a special that night so I just had to try it.

It was so beautifully presented with the lobster on the top and it tasted absolutely gorgeous.

Sam is a big fan of steak so decided to go for the fillet with chips and onion rings - he said it was a really lovely steak!

After our mains we were so full and weren't planning on having a dessert, but when we saw the menu we just couldn't resist. We decided to share the 'trio of chocolate' which consisted of chocolate ice cream, a mini chocolate melt in the middle cake and a white chocolate pot. I have such a sweet tooth and this dessert was absolutely lovely - especially the white chocolate! I would definitely get this again next time  - it even came presented as a smily face which was such a nice touch.

We finished the meal with one more cocktail. My boyfriend went for an espresso martini which looked incredible - I don't like coffee but if you do I would recommend trying one of these. I went for a peach bellini which is my all time favourite cocktail.

We had such a lovely evening at Browns West India Quays. The quality of the food was incredible and the service was really good, they were all really friendly. The location of the restaurant is so pretty overlooking the docks and near Canary Wharf, I love that part of London - if you haven't been you definitely should. If you are looking for somewhere to go for a high quality meal with a large variety of choices on the menu I would definitely recommend Browns. They have lots of restaurants across London and throughout the UK, you can have a look on their main website here to see where they are located. I will definitely be going back to Browns and trying out one of their other restaurants in London.
