It goes without saying that the steaks are the main attraction, considering the fact that The Brossen is a steakhouse. Offering a wide selection of both on the bone and off the bone cuts, the steakhouse has nailed classics such as oak smoked rump steaks and t-bone steaks.
Locally sourced like the rest of the menu, the steaks are aged to create a tender and flavourful cut of meat. You can even choose from salt aged cuts for an extra tender steak, with options including a 21-day aged cut or the 40-day salt aged ribeye steak.
While the sides are often overlooked in favour of the main attraction, you’ll find a delicious and varied choice at The Brossen Steakhouse – changed seasonally to make the most of local produce and keep the menu fresh.
Currently, you can look forward to choosing from a smorgasbord of sides ranging from Asian fusion dishes like miso corn on the cob and Asian salad to classics like truffle mac and cheese and beef dripping chips.
Having racked up an impressive score of 4 out of 5 on TripAdvisor, the steakhouse obviously delivers when it comes to an all-around excellent dining experience. Averaged out from hundreds of guest reviews, The Brossen scores particularly high when it comes to the food, making it a winning choice for anyone looking to dine out in Keswick.
Having clearly impressed previous diners, this steakhouse will be sure to hit the spot for your next meal out. Unsurprisingly, guests speak particularly highly of the locally sourced cuts of meat, which are grilled to order by the exceptional kitchen staff right in front of diners.
Refurbished a few years ago in order to match the equally modern menu, this steakhouse is now a modern affair with an interior to rival any of its inner-city counterparts. Inspired by Danish design, the contemporary dining room of The Brossen is finished with giant murals showing off popular cuts of different meats to really set the scene for your dining experience.
The AA Rosette
The Brossen was the first restaurant in the area to receive the prestigious AA rosette. Considering the fact that only 10% of restaurants nationwide are deemed worthy of one or more rosettes, this is a real testament to the culinary excellence of the steakhouse.
Much like Michelin stars, AA rosettes are awarded by an automotive company. There is a fairly even split between restaurants and hotels receiving one or two rosettes, with only 10% of those awarded managing to score three rosettes or above.
With one AA rosette, The Brossen Steakhouse has been recognised as a restaurant which uses high-quality ingredients and prepares its food with care and understanding.
No eating establishment is truly complete without the right chef taking the reins in the kitchen. Thankfully, The Brossen Steakhouse has the right man for the job with head chef Dan Lansley at the helm. Having perfected his craft at a number of reputable hotels, his experience has shaped the menu, putting a focus on local produce and big flavours.
