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.

Affordable Food, good menu

The food at Browns was of a good standard, we both had lemon sole and our friends had the mushrooms and a Thai curry. The mushrooms were well prepared but the plate was overladen with rocket, in a veiled attempt to fill the plate, which was more than could be said for the sole. It arrived on a huge... read more

Had lunch today at Browns Lane Bar. The food was excellent and so was the service,on the edge of town, they have a great outdoor seating area in which to enjoy refreshments. We ordered the hand stretched pizza and was not disappointed. There were a couple of large family gatherings in and the ambiance was just right. Will return

Booked this restaurant for a night spent in Loughborough, based on reviews on trip advisor. Restaurant is lovely. Nice modern interior. The bar staff were great, more than happy to make anything not on the cocktail list. We all ordered different meals and all thought the food was fantastic. We had great service and we would all definitely recommend this... More

Visited annually on my visits to Loughborough. First experience was a wow factor. The restaurant has had a revamp. Lovely calm and relaxing atmosphere but food does not match up to the previous expectations. I had the plaice in tarragon butter sauce with French beans. The sauce overpowering for the plaice and to the eye too much butter running through.... More

The sirloin steak we ordered was served with french fries which resembled mcdonalds chips with watercress and an overcooked tomato and had to pay extra three pound for a portion of mushrooms. The peppercorn sauce was so thin and watery it looked like hot milk. We also ordered the duck breast with root vegetables which were so bland they were... More
