Browns Lane has a stylish bar with a relaxed feel, and a restaurant that offers high quality freshly prepared cuisine. Imaginative cocktails to perfectly chilled champagne, freshly prepared lunchtime snack menus to the sumptuous specials board, create a perfect setting for any social occasion - coffee with a friend, a romantic meal for two or a big celebratory meal. The upstairs restaurant offers an a la carte menu of modern English 'with a twist' which changes monthly. All dishes are cooked to order using fresh, seasonal, local produce, by chefs who insist on a very high standard of cuisine. Our food is served until 10pm Monday to Saturday

I have been here several times and there's always a lovely selection of food will amble vegetarian options. Prices on Sunday and at lunch in the week are very affordable; we often have 3 courses because there's always so many things I want to try! Drinks are also really good, with a nice selection of wine, cocktails and mocktail at... More

Held a society christmas meal here and was not disappointed! They catered superbly for 30+ of us, and the food was delicious. They were particularly helpful with special dietary requirements and in the organising of the event as they didn't over complicate things. We were able to get a special deal due to our group size and by having a... More

Not been here for a while, since they had the refurb. Came for an early Xmas bite to eat and wasn't to be left disappointed. The lamb was superbly cooked and very tasty. The ambience in the restaurant was great and you could tell there is a new chef in place. The food is much better than previously. I'll be... More

The ambience is great the staff polite and friendly when not busy. The food is good but for the money you pay you expect a little extra. No Gordon Ramsey food in this place. I would either drop the prices or find a chef with flair and ambition. Make it awesome to go with the building. Wine choice is fine... More

We've never had a bad meal here and this last visit was no different, as always the food was perfect and the service great. They catered very well for my peanut allergy and I even had a choice of puddings, which is very rarely the case in other restaurants!

We wanted an early evening meal and arrived at 17:00. We were the only customers but made to feel very welcome and the food was very good and reasonably priced.
