Went to the Brownlow Arms last night with our two daughters - the first thing that strikes you is the lovely décor and intimate setting. The menu was amazing and there was even a separate menu for our vegan/vegetarian daughter which was much appreciated. Food from start to finish was superb - the scallops to start were, according to my... More

Discover the Brownlow Arms, dare I say quintessentially British! We have visited before and our recent visit didn't fail to impress. A fantastic menu, the pork belly stuffed with chorizo is to die for! They just seem to get everything right. On arrival the bar was buzzing with groups of people standing around a roaring fire with the chink of... More

Went here for an evening meal, started with stuffed mushroom which was tasty but only one mushroom with a load of garnish to make it look more for 7 quid, come on!!!. Followed that with the lamb dish which was 27 quid or thereabouts. It was billed as Cannon of lamb with lamb shoulder croquette etc, presentation was good, not... More

Never been here for lunch before. Very pleasant country Inn environment and well-laid table for lunch. Ordered wine which was delivered in a tube cooler instead of an ice bucket. The cooler and wine were simply plonked on the table without any attempt to show me that it was the wine I ordered. Paper napkins were put out on the... More

My family and I have eaten at the Brownlow Arms on several occasions in recent years. It has a lovely atmosphere, the seats are very comfortable, and the service is very good. The food is very good too and normally worth five stars but on our most recent visit we came away somewhat disappointed. We ordered the bread and olives... More

Visited the Brownlow Arms by chance on a two night trip to Lincolnshire.So glad we found it on our way back from Lincoln to the Ramada Hotel. We made a visit on the evening of 20th Oct and enjoyed every minute. The prices match the quality of the food and the service of the staff. We would recommend the Brownlow... More

The Brownlow Arms pays attention to detail to ensure that you feel special and enjoy your visit - this extends to the quality of the food, which is always o a high standard. The bar area is very comfortable and relaxing. Finally, the staff are very friendly and attentive. Highly recommended for that special occasion.

The Brownlow generally delivers good evening meals and rarely disappoints. Prices are ok if the quality is maintained. However twice in recent weeks we have walked to the pub and had a disappointing lunch. Maybe the full blown lunch is ok but if you just want a soup or small pub lunch they have let us down. Quantity is small... More

Not enough superlatives for this up-market village based fine dining pub. Took a party of 19 here, with several Parisien guests (who know fine dining and wines when they see it). They thought everything was perfect and marvelled at the setting and the standard of the cuisine. Brilliant. Next time will bring the wife!
