Browns Lane has a stylish bar with a relaxed feel, and a restaurant that offers high quality freshly prepared cuisine. Imaginative cocktails to perfectly chilled champagne, freshly prepared lunchtime snack menus to the sumptuous specials board, create a perfect setting for any social occasion - coffee with a friend, a romantic meal for two or a big celebratory meal. The upstairs restaurant offers an a la carte menu of modern English 'with a twist' which changes monthly. All dishes are cooked to order using fresh, seasonal, local produce, by chefs who insist on a very high standard of cuisine.

The food was very good, although not excellent, and well... read more

If you are visiting Loughborough be sure and visit Browns Lane. 5* all the way and the staff are delightful.

I've eaten here several times over the last few months and have always had a good meal and nice wine. Browns has a nice relaxed atmosphere and the staff are friendly. It is not a quick in and out sort of place but somewhere to go with partner, friends, colleagues and enjoy the evening (or afternoon).

Our first visit to the restaurant after the refurbishment - well the interior design police had been out and ensured that all colour in the decor had been replaced by shades of grey. So many that it could be renamed 50 Shades of ?? The positive side was that soft furnishings had been introduced so that noise was not such... More

The redecoration has made this a much more sophisticated bistro than before, and the great staff make this a really good dining experience. Good choice on the menu, well prepared and well presented.

Visited this for a Sunday lunch. Not too busy and we were given a roomy table with comfy seating. We all had food from the set lunch menu...prawn cocktail, roasts and sticky toffee pudding. Service was attentive and the food appeared quickly. It was delicious! They coped well with our lively 4 year old granddaughter and we all had a... More

A very stylish yet comfortable place. Great atmosphere and lovely staff. The food is delicious and i think it is reasonably priced for what you receive! especially the lunch set menus! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone! But make sure you book a table if you want to eat in the evenings.... especially weekends!
