We ate here with a large group of friends celebrating a birthday. The upstairs restaurant was packed and there was a great buzz all evening (there were at least 3 different tables singing 'Happy Birthday" at some point during the evening!). The drinks and service were excellent all night. As for the food, the starters and desserts were fabulous (I... More

We ate as a group of 7, one pregnant, one coeliac and one dairy free. We all ate what we wanted and enjoyed it immensely. It's been a few years since we ate here and immediately felt guilty for having stayed away so long. I have never had a bad meal in over 12 years of having eaten here. It... More

Me and my boyfriend came to browns lane for the first time on Tuesday and thoroughly enjoyed it. The restaurant was very welcoming and modern with a great lay out. When we arrived it was nice and busy with a great atmosphere. I had monk fish and my boyfriend had sirloin steak. It was presented beautifully and the steak was... More

what didn't work well We had to be asked to be served at all points. We had been sat down for twenty minutes and we still hadnt been asked what we would like to drink, despite the restaurant being half full. My friend ordered fillet steak (23.00). It was extremely small and did not come with any vegetables. We didn't... More

Last night was my husband's and I first visit to Browns Lane in a few years- we used to go there a lot but moved a little further away several years ago. We got a last minute table and were really shocked at the fab makeover when we got there- very stylish. We sat and had a drink in the... More

I'm not sure what went wrong as I have never experienced a bad meal at Brown's before. We had to pre-order our food and you'd think that would allow the team to get it right. Starters were good even though we had a long wait. Mains, the steak order was messed up and one guest had to wait whilst another... More

Went there for a special occasion, and prebooked a table over a week in advance so that we could choose a table. I asked if this would be ok to do when booking. When we arrived we found that our table had been given to someone else and we were to be squashed between 2 other couples. It therefore instantly... More

Six on the table. Very nice surroundings, emaculate toilets. Service a little laid back but very professionally executed at the table. Could do with more veg was the general consensus, otherwise superbly prepared and presented cuisine. Worth a visit for 'that special occasion'
