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.

Both meals were Devine after finishing my pate I couldn't resist... More

We went to Brown's Lane for our work Christmas 'do' the restaurant is lovely inside and the menu had an excellent selection. The downside was a lack of parking. The outside patio looked very decorative, although it was too cold to take advantage of! Service was excellent.

After being here once before and unfortunately not remembering much due to my wine intake I wanted to go again! We got there and had some drinks downstairs, all nice, the colour scheme is lovely and calming. We had the food which was all lovely, service was a little slow but it was mid week and we were at the... More
