Clifford Brown’s Brasserie
Opening in late 2016, the name Clifford Brown’s Brasserie has quickly become synonymous with outstanding food and service. Owned and run by husbandand- wife team Olly and Carrie, who are originally from the local area and have returned to home turf for their first restaurant venture.
Clifford Brown’s is a modern English brasserie situated in the heart of Knowle Village and housed within the old Hampshire Asylum buildings, reputedly in the morgue. Thanks to an imposing facade that leads to a strikingly cool and quirky interior, boasting industrial and steam punk features, the bar and restaurant is like a little piece of London in the mid-south.
Using local suppliers and the best of each season’s ingredients, the team delivers a truly unique food offering. The menu showcases myriad local ingredients, including Meon Valley beef, South Downs lamb and Tunworth cheese. The same ethos is echoed in the bar, where staff serve local real ale from The Flower Pots Brewery and Bowman Ales, to name a couple, and local vodka, gin and sparkling wine. With a superb Sunday lunch, bar menu, and daily fish specials dependent on the local catch, Clifford Brown’s is a jewel in the Hampshire countryside.
