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 second time we have visited this restaurant with my wife, daughter and her boyfriend. Staff were slow and not attentive, had to call them over to order drinks and again a little later to take our orders. It seems the staff are from the student community and could do with some training. The food... read more

Ended up here last minute after an unexpected trip to Loughborough. We were immensely impressed by the whole package, the menu, the wine list, the decor and the service. The food was delicious washed down with a refreshing bottle of Picpoul de Pinet. I'd like to return to work my way through the menu which contained so may delicious sounding... More

I have just eaten at this restaurant, and found the lunch time menu was very good value for money. The first course of mackerel was really tasty, and very well presented, and the main course of Chicken Breast on sweet potato mash was very good. The staff are really friendly and polite, the whole place very clean. Will be returning... More

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).

Went there recently for my daughters birthday and we had a great time with interesting menu (see later re limitations), reasonable prices, good service (ditto re later), decent wine list and fresh, albeit a little sterile, décor. The food was very good, although not excellent, and well presented. While there were some interesting choices, on the meat front the menu... More

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after the refurbishment - well the interior design police had been out and ensured that all colour in the decor had been replaced by shades of grey.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
