For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.


Cosy neighbourhood hangout in an increasingly foodie area of Plymouth with a focus on sustainable, locally sourced produce. Initially launched with MasterChef The Professionals winner Anton Piotrowski at the helm in spring 2017, the kitchen is now headed by Jimmy and Joe Cotton.

The chef

Jimmy and Joe Cotton are young, dynamic and extremely talented chefs. With years of Michelin Star level experience, the Cotton Brothers are inspired in their culinary ideas and presentation, something that we at Brown and Bean value highly. 

They’re young, innovative, up-to-the-minute and self-assured, and we believe they’re starting to make waves with their classic style of cooking.

Both chefs are extremely knowledgeable and can create beautifully presented dishes, always maintaining high standards whilst serving up the best locally sourced, seasonal and sustainable food.

The dynamic chefs have stripped everything back to what is truly important – The Food!
