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.

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

Not been here for a while and decided to try the Sunday lunch for my sisters birthday. We were seated in a lovely booth downstairs with room for a high chair. The setting is modern, clean and looks great. The staff were very friendly, immaculately dressed and took our order straight away. The starter arrived quite quickly and was very... More

I have been here multiple times every time my family comes up to visit and we always have wonderful meals here. The latest and final one as I have now graduated was wonderful as always, we had great serve, delicious food and a decent cost (though we are from London). Definitely one of Loughborough's best restaurants and a must visit,

I visited with a family group for a graduation celebration. We ate from a set menu priced at £25, which had a good choice with a number of "old" favourites such as steaks. I had a mozzarella and tomato salad, simply made and very fresh. Then I had a lamb with mash and roasted veg. This was wonderfully tasteful and... More

For the price as good a meal as I've had in London. Best value are the lunch time specials. Inventive menus that constantly change.

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

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 was good and the evening... 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
