A great meal and overnight stay

fine dining food served in a comfortable restaurant. We were impressed with the wine list and the meal was tasty. Breakfast was substantial after a comfortable night stay.

What a great atmosphere! I know it was a Saturday evening but clearly this restaurant is very popular and once the food arrived, it was clear to see why. All courses were excellent, the flavours were delicious and the portions sizes perfect. Well worth a visit!

I have visited the Brownlow Arms a few times and the experience has always been a great one. The staff are always polite and courteous and make you feel very welcome. The food is also consistently good and this evening was another great example. I had the chicken and my wife had duck and both were really good. I have... More

I've just spent four nights at the Brownlow Arms and ate there every evening. The staff were pleasant, friendly and helpful. The food was excellent beautifully cooked and presented, the menu is pretty large there is a regular menu and a changing specials menu so you have plenty of choice. There was a pretty good wine list for instance at... More

I was looking forward to visiting this restaurant as it had been recommended to us by some friends. After waiting nearly 30 minutes for our table we were seated next to the door into the kitchen which was a little disruptive with people coming in and out. My soup was nice but I was disappointed with the main course. Roast... More

This is getting the way we do things now in that 4 family members, all with birthdays near each other, choose a good restaurant and go there as a joint present. We've done this for some time now so we are getting good at being critical! Not here though. This is a little gem. The staff are all, and I... More

We met with friends and had a great table for six in the window. The food was fantastic and service very good. All the staff were very friendly and we all agreed we had an excellent... More

Although we have known the Brownlow Arms for decades this is the first time we have been in for 30 years. We visited early on a cold summer, Wednesday evening. Initial impressions are positive you enter a welcoming bar area with a nice dining room just to one side. The welcome was warm and the lady behind the bar served... More
