Brown’s Hotel was created in 1837 by Lord Byron’s butler (James Brown)and his wife, Lady Byron’s maid, out of four adjacent Georgian houses (it is now made up of 11 houses). Its rich story includes the fact that Queen Victoria herself often took tea here, the Roosevelt's honeymooned here and Agatha Christie based 'At Bertram’s Hotel' on Brown’s.
A recent refurbishment has brought a light, contemporary style to the historical building and Afternoon Tea is served in the very attractive and comfortable lounge where the atmosphere is enhanced by live piano music from the baby grand.
