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

Came here on Thursday to celebrate my Brother in Laws graduation. Had to pre order which was fine. Had a lovely goats cheese starter, everyone else had the chicken started which was very tasty. Mains were all very good, my chicken was excellent and my husbands duck was beautiful. Desserts very nice, chocolate mouse was OK, have had better but... 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!

My Boyfriend and I eat here regularly and know the staff well, all are very attentive, and as for the food are always willing to try new things, could not compliment the food and design of the food enough, very enjoyable and will be happy to offer this restaurant, out custom in the future.

We went for a late lunch/early dinner and we were really happy. The restaurant is really nicely decorated and has a nice atmosphere. We were greeted and seated promptly. There are some good choices on the menu and the children's menu is good, with some smaller versions of adult mains available. I opted for the slow roasted Morrocan lamb shank... More

Great cocktails and wine list. Greek style starter was pleasant the flat bread was not freshly made. The fish and chips were ok but not special. I returned the quinoa lasagne, it was so over cooked and dried out, it was inedible. It was taken off our bill. The deserts were nice. Went home hungry. I would definitely go again... More

Really disappointed with the meal last night. Been a couple of times before and couldn't rate Brown's highly enough but I had the steak this time which had the toughest layer of fat running through it so I had to leave half of it. The Eton Mess was just a couple of cubes of rock hard meringue, teamed with a... More

I visited Browns Lane for a special anniversary celebration. I have visited in the past and felt the food was average. But a makeover brings new promises... The service is good and the makeover done well. The food is poor (sadly hadn't read other reviews that indicate this). I had duck which was utterly tasteless with dauphinois which aren't dauphinois,... More

We had our end of year summer ball at the restaurant and everyone's feedback said they thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Even when organising the event were quick in replying and able to compromise to give myself and the rest of the club a wonderful night. The venue itself was really smart while all the members of staff were extremely polite... More

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
