David Brown Restaurant @ Penang Hill

David Brown's at Strawberry Hill, a quintessential British colonial Restaurant and Tea Terraces is a hidden gem at Penang Hill. 

David Brown's now stands was believed to have been originally leveled by Captain Francis Light for planting strawberries which grew well here until the outbreak of the Second World War in 1941.

Amidst the lush greenery, this 'hill upon a hill' restaurant standing on Strawberry Hill provides the perfect setting for meaningful memories - whether it is wedding, lifestyle parties or just chilling out with loved ones and friends.

David Brown’s offers a view of almost every significant landmark in the Penang island. 


The well-manicured garden with iconic lily pond sets the scene for al fresco dinning for 50 guests or more.

The interior of the restaurant is thoughtfully furnished with comfortable old world furnishing of a past elegance and can accommodate 40 guests.

Besides authentic heritage ambience, David Brown provides fine British cooking and a selection of Penang Specialties.   



There is a variety of hors d'oeuvres, steaks and chops, fresh puddings and pies and traditional roasts in the menu, which also offers a vegetarian selection.

Recommended to come in the late evening so that you can enjoy the view before and after sunset ^^
