Fantastic Bar and restaurant. Modern decor throughout with a great feel and welcome as soon as we walked in. Nothing too much trouble for the young, attentive members of staff( headed by Jess). 9 of us in our party. Perfect in every way in the pace of service. Food choice on the menu was excellent. It tasted even better. Highly... More

A very pleasant lunch for two. Only visiting to SHOP. New to Loughborough and recommended by Ladies dress shop. Excellent service, very nice lunch and value for money. Would certainly go again and recommend to friends.

I like Browns...it has a good atmosphere and it looks great inside. The food is decent also...but the prices seem to have gone up a bit in the last 2 years. Compared to "The Grey Lady" restaurant (Just outside Loughborough)....the prices are similar, but the food is of a far better standard there. (As is the location). So hard to... More

Thank you so much to the staff @ Browns today for helping us celebrate our very special friends baby shower and for making us feel so welcome. Food was amazing and nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended for any occasion.

Came here Saturday night for a meal with a friend and didn't know what to expect. My God, it was absolutely faultless. Our waitress was friendly and despite being young, she had an awesome knowledge of the menu. A different girl in black dress came over with our wine who created a welcoming atmosphere with a bit of banter and... More

A grown up restaurant that packs a real punch on food, environment and team - great place. It's somewhere you can dress up and feel like an adult!!

We were led to believe this is exceptional. It isn't. There is nothing much seriously wrong but it is certainly not exceptional and the overall effect is underwhelming. We got off to a poor start when they couldn't find our booking. Then the service is mediocre - amateurish and inexperienced with insufficient knowledge of the dishes and the wine. Then... More

I have been to Browns Lane now on a number of occasions and have always enjoyed my experiences. Both the bar staff and serving staff are always friendly, helpful and prompt. One evening in particular I was due to arrive much later than my group of friends who had already pre-ordered their meals, I had not pre-ordered my meal. Despite... More

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
