Although it may look like your ordinary pub it isn't, the food here's spectacular. With steak and pie and a fish that's bigger than the plate it's served on! Although it comes with a hefty price tag it's definitely worth the money

I really love the food at the Brownlow. They serve top quality pub food and staff appear attentive. You always feel like your visit matters. The specials are always tasty, comprising of an imaginative blend of flavours and textures. My favourite dish however is the piri piri skewers: creamy, spicy and tasty. They are usually more than happy to tone... More

Service was excellent, food was very good, and price was average. I have been 4 times in the last 8 weeks and been pleased every time. Brought friends from London and they were very impressed.

Your review is based upon a visit in March 2014. This is nearly a year ago and I'm most surprised that after all this time you still remember our carpet. Very perculiar indeed that you feel it of utmost importance to criticise our business one year on after visiting, I can only assume that your reoccurring nightmares of our carpet... More

I visit this area to meet friends from Manchester. No matter when you visit, it's busy so I would strongly recommend booking a table. The service is wonderful (some of the most polite!) and portions are very very big and great value for money. The skewers are a must! I'll always go back and really look forward to hearty food...
