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

Been here twice now, both for group meals.

Food is generally well prepared and tastes ok-- I wouldn't call it high end though it's not cheap pub food either. Perhaps a bit pricey.

The cocktails are great though on this visit at least two people were training so it took a while to get them.

Staff are generally very friendly and helpful.

The restaurant and bar look nice though both visits during heatwave July AND December for Christmas the loft restaurant are way too hot with no window ventilation and ac that doesn't do the job. It just becomes uncomfortable by the end of the meal.

Overall very good but good do with some tweaking.

I have arranged for a business dinner and I did not regret coming here. This was my first time here and it was worth it. The atmosphere is pleasant, the staff is very friendly and the food is fresh, tasty and very well presented on the plate. And! it was not expensive! I recommend it to everyone, business lunch, dinner or just for a couple or family; it will be money well&tasty spent.

Great little place in the town centre of Loughborough. I will say that Loughborough doesn't have that many places where couples can enjoy a nice romantic meal but Browns Lane is exactly that. Warm atmosphere with GREAT food, expensive, but you get what you pay for.

We love locally and have visited this restaurant occasionally. They have been serving the same menu for years. Over-priced, over-fussy food. But there is little choice in this town

We did have a lovely meal but the seating upstairs is very cramped which means it is very Noisy and the seats despite looking good became quite uncomfortable for two of us.
