Three different groups all celebrating something as well as some normal diners.. recipe for a disaster? But not so! Couldn't fault it at all. Service very good. Food even better. Well cooked. Well presented. Good value for money. Recommended.

I went to Browns Lane for lunch recently. When I first visited this restaurant, maybe eight years ago, it had an enjoyable mix of good atmosphere and good food. There has been a decline in recent years. I retry it about once a year but the place hasn’t been good for some time. The chorizo and red onion bruschetta was... More

Visited this restaurant during the evening with a group of friends and i ordered the fish and chips... it was nice but personally felt that it was nothing special and was slightly over priced, especially considering the small portions. The staff are friendly and pretty attentive. Wouldn't go again for dinner but would for a light lunch

We booked Browns Lane for our wedding lunch for 60 guests. Hayley and David were both very helpful and supportive in assisting us to plan the event. We started with canapés and drinks downstairs (the weather precluded us from being outside) and ate upstairs in the restaurant. We had pre ordered food using the party menu which catered for everyone... More

A lunch time visit proved to be excellent. Super service. Fresh food, well cooked to the individuals needs and timing between courses were sot on.

Our last visit to this Restaurant was three years ago. We had not returned as it was not to our taste. Again we were disappointed at least in half. The shrimp past dish and Eaton mess my wife felt was excellent. My dish the fajitas was not to my expectations. My main concern was the chicken being in cubes rather... More

Pleasant bar area downstairs. Restaurant ok but when busy I can imagine it is difficult to a conversation. Staff pleasant and eager to please , but untrained....why is it staff never know the vintage of a wine anymore? It's not as though it is unimportant. Food.....Pork, apparently ok, but it looked dry to me. Spaghetti Carbonnara, inedible, I suspect there... More

Recently several of us on a Hen party dined at browns lane. Our table was booked for 8:30pm. We had to ask several times if our table was ready. A hen party was complaining when we arrived so really didn't give us much hope! Having pre-booked our orders, the orders were re-taken after about 10-15minutes of being seated. We finally... More

We'd booked in advanced for a hen party, I emailed a pre order from the party menu which had some really lovely options on. A couple of my guests dropped out last minutiae but this was no issue. We sat upstairs & the service was great, the food was beautifully presented, everyone had a great night. We did enjoy the... More
