I looked for a place to stay which was half way between myself and my sister (Stalybridge and Cambridge) and when I looked at places to stay I came across this Inn. It looked really lovely and atmospheric and the restaurant had really excellent reviews. We arrived mid afternoon and was shown to our room. It was a lovely cosy... More

I cannot praise this establishment enough. The Brownlow offers one of, if not the best dining experience in Lincolnshire and beyond. My only criticism would be that it is now too popular. Three courses and coffee for just under £30 per head offers excellent value for money. The standard of cooking, service and ambience of the dining rooms rivals anything... More

Birthday meal, just the two of us. Good selection of local cask ales, great service, charming atmosphere, fabulous food. We will be back, but not weekly. Treat venue at these prices.

Two for lunch. Good range of choices for lunch. Starters can be light lunch options as well. Sandwiches and paninis menu. Starters of Brownlow fishcake, excellent with whole grain piquant mustard dressing and Moules Mariniere with its aromatic seafood brothy liquor ready for the delicious homemade bread. Mains of soft, tasty, meaty yum shin of beef and chicken supreme, moist,... More

We have dined here many times in the evening and Sunday lunchtime - They now open Wednesday, Thursday & Friday lunchtimes. Simpler menu, but still great food, reasonably priced. Lovely, friendly service. There is also a very good patio area where it is possible to eat - depending on weather.

Came across this establishment whilst driving thro' Hough On The Hill. Charming situation and the Inn has plenty of character. Staff all very welcoming and helpful. Excellent lunchtime menu. Will certainly re-visit. Just one point. They appear not to always open at lunchtimes.Possibly a seasonal thing. It would pay to book as it appears to be popular.

Stopped here for an evening, and totally surprised by how good it is. The room was very comfortable, fantastic bed, well appointed, and the restaurant was brilliant. Attentive happy staff, well executed and delicious food, in a very nice environment. Highly recommended.

Read the good reviews on here and this place didn't disappoint - best meal out I've had for some time. I had ham hock starter and braised beef - both were exceptional. Partner's food was great too. Believe the hype! The only very minor downside was the service - we had to ask for menus and were asked if we... More
