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!

I have been to this lovely pub/restaurant on many previous occasions and always enjoyed the ambience, service and found the food to be out of this world. This was a lunch time visit for my husband's 70th birthday. We were unable to eat out in the evening, so I wanted something special at lunch time. We booked and arrived on... More

We visit this restaurant without fail every time we are in the area. It has an excellent menu which changes regularly and the service and food is superb. It is wise to book as it is very popular. You relax in the bar with the menu and you are called to your table when it is ready. We have been... More

We have eaten here several times and always have a really lovely meal. The food is superb and we always find it difficult to choose from the lovely selection on the menu. It's a pub with a lovely atmosphere and there are rooms if you'd rather not drive home. The winless is great and the decor is lovely - I... More

My wife and I have just returned from an evening out at The Brownlow with a couple of friends to celebrate my birthday and I have to say the evening fell short of our expectations. The service was extremely slow considering the number of staff that seemed to be present, this may have been due to them congregating around the... More

First visit here and will definitely be returning! It was a busy Wednesday lunchtime with a private party in one of the rooms. Despite a fairly full restaurant and function, the service was excellent, efficient and friendly. There was an excellent choice of dishes, including lighter options and pub style sandwiches. I opted for classic Moules Mariniere to start followed... More
