The “Browns on the Green” brand has relocated to Portstewart Golf Club, however Browns will now operate solely as Barnhill Bar & Grill from the Clubhouse at Letterkenny Golf Club.
Whilst it is sad to see the fine dining restaurant name leaving us after almost 9 years of excellent service it’s great news that the quality of food served in our clubhouse will still bear the Browns brand renowned for high quality.
We wish Carol and the other staff relocating to Portstewart every success and our best wishes. We are delighted that Shane, Sharon and Chef Rob will bring us forward as Barnhill Bar & Grill .
