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.

Nice Meal

A busy and noisy restaurant this is the first time we have eaten here since it has been refurbished. The decor is more contemporary and it feels it a bit warmer as well. It's still noisy which may be something to do with the vaulted roof. I had the roasted pouisson which comes whole and is quite... read 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!

Visited recently for a family meal. We sat upstairs the service & decor was very nice. However, I would have to say the food was very average, I was expecting more. We ordered various things from the menu, including Pizza, Fajita's, a burger. The pizza had hardly any toppings and was 99% covered in cheese which I had to try... More

I have had some hit and miss experiences at Browns in the past with poor service at times and okay but expensive food. However, we thought we would pay another visit after a recent refurbishment and I am glad we did. The refurb seems to have really cheered the place up. The service was excellent and the food was of... More
