I went to this place following a recommendation, i found it to be a gloomy place, quite dark and not entirely welcoming. Steak ( I had a T Bone) was ok but I was expecting much more. Service OK but indifferent. Would I go back? No.

A good traditional British Restaurant (I will stop short of calling it a pub as the food quality and prices is higher than you would expect with pub grub). Plenty of choice for all courses on the menu plus some appetising specials. I had the steak which was cooked medium rare as ordered and was not spoilt by being over... More

We went to the Brownlow for a birthday lunch. We were given a side room to ourselves. The service we received was nothing short of excellent. The waitresses are so friendly and helpful. It makes a change from so many of the other pubs. The food, as usual, was nothing short of excellent. The quality and the generous portions are... More

We called in on the off-chance, having previously been recommended by my husband's work colleague. An early evening table which had to be vacated by 6.30pm, which gave us one and a half hours. The food was cooked to order (we both had a pie) and it came out piping hot and all the vegetables (side portion) were cooked perfectly.... More
