Tom Browns Restaurant, Gunthorpe, combines the stunning charm and character of an Old Victorian School House with an elegant, contemporary interior. Sitting on the leafy banks of the River Trent it offers some gorgeous views of the river and local wildlife, especially from the heated outdoor alfresco dining terrace. We are very proud of our two AA Rosettes (2008-2017) & Michelin Restaurant Guide 2017/18 entry; and work exceptionally hard to deliver consistent quality.

Over the past 30 years Tom Browns Restaurant has built a reputation as one of the best restaurants in Nottingham and we pride ourselves on serving fantastic quality, fresh, modern, international cuisine and providing superb service. The alfresco dining terrace boasts gorgeous riverside restaurant views and is the perfect setting in which to relax in the summer months, either for a meal or just drinks. When the weather gets a little cooler there are blankets and outside fire pits to keep you warm.
The ethos of Tom Browns Restaurant is simple - to deliver superb food and service. Professional service which is informative yet unobtrusive allows our guests to relax in the contemporary surroundings and focus on each other.
We believe your meal should be enjoyed with great conversation and our staff aim to let you enjoy your company whilst offering some of the best drinks we can get our hands on. Our wine list is diverse yet easily read and we have a great selection of mainstream and craft beers. Our cocktail list is incredibly creative and changes with the seasons - new ideas are always being trialed.
Our main reputation stems from the quality of the food. It’s simple and classic in one respect yet imaginative and creative in another. There are two main menus on offer – A La Carte and Early Bird. The menus are designed to be approachable and there’s something for everyone. At lunch we offer ciabattas and light lunches alongside char-grills and classic mains such as fish & chips. We offer, in our minds, the best Sunday Lunch in Nottingham, deliciously pink sirloin of beef, crispy beef dripping roasties and massive home-made Yorkies – you have to try it! Since we launched our quirky Afternoon Tea in 2015 it has grown to be incredibly popular. We don’t buy any of the cakes in, everything is made fresh on the morning of your afternoon tea.
Tom Brown's specialise in private function rooms perfect for formal dinners, business conferences and any special occasion, the space can be adapted for many different events.
We hold a number of special events throughout the year, including fine dining events and live music party nights. In November we hold our famous Beaujolais Breakfast Party in our 250 seater marquee and we also host two highly extravagant balls, one in winter and one in summer, a black tie event with amazing food, entertainment and International DJs. We also host a handful of beautiful, bespoke wedding receptions throughout the year.
We are, above all else - a Brasserie so we don’t see ourselves as formal, but we do offer to take our guest’s jackets. We are a warm, friendly and genuine rosette restaurant in which you can enjoy a few hours with your family or friends, whether having a meal or catching up over cocktails, while gazing over our riverside view in Nottingham. It really is that simple.
