This used to be one of the best restaurants in Loughborough. Unfortunately, it has been trading on its passed reputation for too long, and I will not be going again. The last few times I have been have been disappointing and I should have learnt. The restaurant has pretensions that far exceed what it delivers - on our most recent... More

My local ladies business group meet at Browns Lane once a month and every time the team do a fantastic job of hosting us. The venue is lovely - elegant and relaxing without being pompous and the staff are fabulous, very helpful and polite. Today we had a summer menu with a choice of tuna, chicken or mackerel salads followed... More

My husband and I ate here last night and had a really lovely meal. We were greeted and served by very friendly and at tentative staff throughout. The food was delicious, can highly recommend the scallops and the duck breast, all cooked to perfection and the presentation of all the dishes right through from starters to deserts looked amazing!

Great food & service. Restaurant was quiet for a Friday night - only around 8/9 tables taken up, but very good food and first class service. Friendly staff, nice ambience.

The menu is varied with something to suit all tastes. The decor is light and airy with a relaxed atmosphere. We ordered bread and olives to share as a starter and it was more than ample for the two of us and the selection was lovely. For our main course, we both had Chicken Fajitas, These were served on a... More

We've been the Browns lane a number of times, and the past two times the service wasn't great! We felt second best to bigger parties. But we thought we would try it again nearly a year on. The place was empty, us being the group at the restaurant. On arrival the service was great and we wouldn't fault it, yet... More

A second visit - (see review dated 2nd June). This time with a large group of celebrating family, all keen to eat well. I can honestly say it's ok. It's not good/wonderful/brilliant/delicious... its ok. The food is ok, some basic (tempura batter) some good (sirloin steak was cooked as requested) some poor (belly pork with no crackling) The service is... More

After a recent let down meal in June, I came back for a birthday meal, recently; absolutely faultless. The service and food were both spot on. This is the Browns I know and love! Kudos to the chef and waitress that served us!

Description
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
