24-May-2017Brownes Tuam, a new stop on Irelandís Gastronomic map
Galway, Ireland, 24-May-2017 /PRzone.ie/- The Tuam Fox,

Husband and wife team Stevie and Amanda Lane are setting out to put the town of Tuam on Irelandís culinary map with their restaurant and bar, Brownes.

The couple have opened a bar and restaurant in the heart of Tuam, Co. Galway. The cosy bar has a wide selection of craft beers, wines, spirits and cocktails and the restaurant showcases modern, seasonal cooking using fresh local produce.

Located in the heart of Tuamís town square Brownes is a pub with a lot of history in the town. As with many old Irish pubs, Brownes was a Ďone stop shopí where you could buy your weeks groceries, have a few pints and in this particular bar... even sell your wool in the family wool merchants out the back. The pub has always been associated with the band The Saw Doctors and much of the video to their number one hit ĎN17í was filmed in the bar in 1991.

Brownes also holds personal history for the new owners as this is the very place they met originally while working behind the bar at weekends during college.

Stevie and Amanda carried out an extensive refurbishment on the unit and gave it a new breath of life. They have maintained the character of the small front area which is now known as ĎThe Grocery Barí. With itís open fire, wine, cocktail, spirits and craft beer selection itís an excellent place to relax over a few drinks. The old back bar has been transformed into a restaurant serving modern seasonal food in small sharing plates or tapas style dining.

Stevie trained and worked with some of Dublinís top chefs including Derry Clarke of LíEcrivain, Stephen McAllister of The Pigís Ear and John Wyer of Forest Avenue. He has taken his experience of modern Irish cooking and his love of using local seasonal produce and applied this to his cooking at Brownes. Stevie said ďitís great to have so many amazing producers right on our doorstep. We list all our suppliers on the back of our menu and itís great to be able to glance down through the list and see so many from just out the road. Our goatís cheese is from Larry of the Galway Goat Farm in Dunmore, our salad leaves are grown by Aitor of Fuinseog Farm in Corofin. We are getting delicious rare breed pork from Dave in Andarl Farm only half an hour down the road in Claremorris and thatís just a few.Ē

It would seem that having spent 12 years living and working in Dublin this couple have brought a little slice of it with them to their hometown of Tuam. Brownes is a modern take on the traditional pub offering that desirable mix of traditional comfort with a modern approach to high quality cuisine.
