About us:
Brawn, the neighbourhood restaurant on London’s Columbia Road, opened in 2010. Owned and operated by chef Ed Wilson alongside business partner and wife Josie Stead, the restaurant focuses on quality ingredient-led, seasonal cooking that compliments a discerning natural leaning wine list, delivered with genuine warmth and hospitality.

The menu is inspired by the seasons with a deep respect for produce and a love of regional, life-affirming cooking. The wine list takes a democratic approach with much of the front of house being involved in its development. The space is pared back with a carefully curated art collection, and deep, rotating record playlist adding to the restaurant’s charm.

Since its opening in 2010, Brawn has gained a reputation as a unique and well-loved East London destination, where the relaxed environment and welcoming, knowledgeable team make it the very definition of neighbourhood dining. Brawn has also achieved a reach far beyond the boundaries of E2, hosting frequent collaborations with like-minded restaurateurs, chefs and winemakers from across the globe.

We are currently recruiting for the following roles:
