Hidden between lush greenery, this hidden gem sitting on a ‘hill upon a hill’ atop Strawberry Hill is the perfect setting to create meaningful memories with your loved ones – be it a wedding between lovebirds, a party to showcase your lifestyle or just to hang out with loved ones, friends and family.

David Brown’s is ideal for company function/dinner, seminar, product launch, training, management meeting, annual or family dinner. Our friendly and professional service staff is there to ensure your requirements are met unobtrusively.

Outside, David Brown’s allows a spectacular view of every significant landmark on the Pearl of the Orient. The impressively well-manicured garden with an elegant pond stretching across the garden, sprinkled with lilies and dimly illuminated by a light-yellow tint in the evening sets the scene for al fresco dining.

In itself, the restaurant is tastefully furnished with only the best of the best from old world furnishing that brings a charm to the interiors. The authentic heritage ambience in the restaurant provides a unique experience where you can enjoy fine British cooking with a variety of Penang’s specialties to choose from.
With a wide variety of hors d’oeuvers, steaks, chops, fresh puddings, pies and traditional roasts on the menu that also offers a selection of vegetarian food to cater to your every need.


It is believed that in the past, Captain Francis Light came to Penang and the hill was originally leveled for the planting of strawberries. Visitors who disembarked at the upped station of the now-revamped funicular railway can clearly see the iconic entrance to David Brown’s on Strawberry Hill along the road and it’s just minutes away from the station.
