Great food

We use the brownlow on regular basis, and the standard, although high, remains the same. This is our go to restaurant if we fancy steak, best in the area. Obviously they do other food, and again no complaints. The whale and chips is the biggest you will find anywhere. The staff are always... read more

I highly recommend the chilli nachos for starter. Best nachos I've ever had and perfect for sharing. My boyfriend had the carpet bagger and rated it a 10! Said it was perfectly cooked and well presented. I wasn't as impressed with a Stilton skewer that was a bit heavy on the cheese but that may have been personal preference. The... More

Another perfect evening at The Brownlow! I aim to try something different on every visit & tonight, once again I was not disappointed - although I think the 'cod' was a 'whale' in disguise :) The fish was amazing, as was my sisters steak & my husbands burger!! It was my sisters first visit and definitely not her last, she... More

If you ever find yourselves in Cheshire East/N. Staffs, and you have a large appetite, you can't do better than one of the steak options at The Brownlow. Well worth a detour.

I have heard many good things about the Brownlow over the years, but never got round to going there. But now i've been i can safely say the all the good things were true: great food, lots of choice, good atmosphere and the staff were very friendly. You can't ask for much more than that.

Warm & welcoming, although often busy - particularly on Fri. and Sat. You are looked after by friendly and attentive staff while you work your way through a selection of fine menu food and specials. I guess I'd have to class myself as a frequent visitor, and I've never had a bad meal yet. Recommended.

We ate here last night for my mother-in-law's 70th birthday meal. 7 of us in total, all meals ordered were different, all the meals came out at the same time as you should expect and all were delicious. We were served by Anastasia who is very friendly and professional. Meals ordered were the carpet bagger, chilli, chicken skewer with piri... More

The committee of the Talke Pits Townswomen's Guild always go out once a year for a meal. This time we went to the Brownlow and enjoyed a lovely night out. The food was excellent and Anastasia who served us was very helpful and good fun to talk to. Can thoroughly recommend this restaurant.
