I found the food extremely good quality and was freshly made by scratch. The staff were pleasant and I found the service quick. I definitely would go there again.

Pleasant bar area downstairs. Restaurant ok but when busy I can imagine it is difficult to a conversation. Staff pleasant and eager to please , but untrained....why is it staff never know the vintage of a wine anymore? It's not as though it is unimportant. Food.....Pork, apparently ok, but it looked dry to me. Spaghetti Carbonnara, inedible, I suspect there... More

Recently several of us on a Hen party dined at browns lane. Our table was booked for 8:30pm. We had to ask several times if our table was ready. A hen party was complaining when we arrived so really didn't give us much hope! Having pre-booked our orders, the orders were re-taken after about 10-15minutes of being seated. We finally... More

We'd booked in advanced for a hen party, I emailed a pre order from the party menu which had some really lovely options on. A couple of my guests dropped out last minutiae but this was no issue. We sat upstairs & the service was great, the food was beautifully presented, everyone had a great night. We did enjoy the... More

There were several of us who turned up on time but were asked to wait "10 minutes" which became 25 minutes. It's a popular place, well decorated and with a good environment and plenty of space between tables. The food was excellent whilst quite simple but the service was inconsistent, with a couple of orders forgotten and some indifferent treatment,... More

We went mid week without booking and while there was a birthday party going on downstairs. Staff were certainly busy but somehow managed to do a great job of making us feel welcome and valued. We had the early evening set menu and I recommend it. I very much prefer savoury food to sweet and am almost always disappointed with... More

A busy night so had to wait half an hour for our reserved table. Preordered food. Starter was luke warm and we didn't get served our drinks until AFTER the starters. Nice main course and deserts but on the whole expected better after looking at past reviews.

Great food at a fair price. Slightly limited menu, but enough variety for most. Enjoyed a meal on Friday night, the atmosphere was great and so was the service. Would visit again.
