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.

A real treat

Came here on the recommendation of a local guest house. We weren't disappointed. Food on the menu all looked good and we were spoilt for choice. Cocktails to start were a treat and all different to what you would normally find on a cocktail menu. It felt like eating in someone's front room at... read more

Further to my review of 15/12/14 and subsequent email contact with the establishment, unfortunately it seems, I have had no response what so ever. This of course, in my view, underpins the establishment's lack of professionalism, service and any cycle or system of self improvement. Consistantly poor service and staff training. Im actually surprised at any repeat patronage the resturant... More

Ate here twice recently, once in late December once in early January. Something seems to have gone badly wrong with what has previously been an excellent place. It feels as if there's a Work Experience chef on duty - lack of finesse about the cooking, with some items dry and overcooked. Portion sizes of some dishes - Monkfish being one... More

I was NOT impressed by the service I received on Monday evening, the food was good however did not like the immaturity of staff who clearly just wanted to 'mess around' at work. It was a short blond haired girl who seemed to not even be bothered that we were even sat there and felt completely neglected by her and... More

I went to this restaurant with my partner on a Monday evening, we arrived around 6:45 and were taken up to the dining area upstairs and shown to a table by the window, it was nice but I imagine if there have been a full restaurant we'd of had little room. I had the tempura veg and my partner had... More

My wife and I ate here on a quiet night between Christmas and New Year, when visiting Loughborough. The service was good, in contrast to other reviews on here, but then it was a quiet night in the restaurant. Once you've gone through the rather odd entrance downstairs, which feels not dissimilar to entering a Premier Inn, you're in the... More

Had the Christmas lunch there with a group from work and was pretty underwhelmed by the quality of the food. Main complaint was the main course of red mullet - or at least that was what it was on the menu. Certainly it was fish, and had a few pinky-red scales on one of (mini) fillets, but the other one...
