Browns, The Light, Leeds

Browns in Leeds recently reopened after a refurbishment. The decor now seems to be grey walls which compliments the seating colours.
The service is as excellent as ever I am proud to say. The staff have been well trained: drinks are poured for you when they arrive at your table, knives and forks are changed between each course with efficiency and friendliness.
I chose for my main Fish & chips which seemed to be popular with other diners. The fish might have been better if it was haddock instead of cod, but it was cooked to my liking, the batter was not too fatty and the thick cut chips were a delight. The mushy peas however did seem to lack taste.
If you do not like skin on your fish then you might want to try another dish.
My sister chose a main of Steak & Guinness pie. The pie was indeed big but would have benefited from having more filling in the pie - there was a lot of empty space between the crust and the actual filling.
The desserts were the best part of the meal. I would return again just for these as they could not be faltered.

My sisters Apple, cherry & almond crumble was said to be excellent.
There is a lively buzz about the restaurant and it has an elegant atmosphere, but if you just want to give it a once over I would suggest you go for coffee and desserts as they are some of the best items on the menu.
