About Browns at The Mere Golf Resort and Spa

Browns is a special restaurant which quite fittingly sits at the heart of the resort. Named after Max Brown, who became legendary at The Mere for his magnetic charm, endless enthusiasm and innate passion for exemplary service, his spirit is echoed in our passion for food and guest experience.

A destination restaurant with 1 AA rosette and a simple philosophy which is "Nature to plate", the prime focus being on using only the freshest seasonal ingredients, simply prepared, without all the fuss but presented in a refined way where the flavours of the dish are instantly recognisable. Our commitment to using local suppliers is of paramount importance to us. At Browns the food does the talking.

Browns Bar is a must for a delicious cocktail, before or after your meal.

Amazing food - so good that we ate there two nights in a row. All 3 courses were outstanding and exceeded those consumed in a Michelin starred restaurant the week before.

Had to wait AGES for our pre-meal cocktail but were grateful when it eventually arrived as, due to the delay, it was complimentary !!! Apart from that the service was great. Attentive without being 'over the top'. Thanks to all.

Delicious fine dining , quick and efficient staff. Food presentation was beautiful. Great atmosphere with a lovely man playing the piano and he even played happy birthday to our friend who was in our group of ten people celebrating her 40th birthday, even the other diners in the restuarant contributed to a verse which was great. Thank you for making our visit special.

Food was ok. Service was poor as we were rushed through dinner and asked to attend our table while having pre dinner drinks in the bar. We were then told the food would be kept warm for us (this, with scallops, is not really acceptable).

Excellent food and service, very friendly staff who even swapped my starter for me when I realised I'd misunderstood something on the menu. With the piano playing and open to requests, it was a truly wonderful dining experience.

Piano too loud couldnt hear the waitress. Initially seated in the centre of an almost empty restaurant next to the piano and asked to be moved to a quieter and more private table.Bar very rowdy due to a wedding party which put us off from having a drink in this area. The starter and main were disappointing however the dessert was delicious.

We booked a table at Browns with family members for a special occasion. There seemed to be a lot of staff to hand unfortunately they were not very attentive. After ordering drinks (which had to be sent back as they were not right) we were shown to our table. Once seated, we were soon forgotten! We had to ask for the wine menu as it was not offered to us, top up our own wine and even ask for missing meals. Once our meals were finished we sat for some time with the plates in front of us whilst waiting on staff looked on, we had to ask for the table to be cleared and decided to give up on desserts! All in all not a very good dining experience and came away feeling let down by the hype surrounding this restaurant, great food unfortunately let down by front of house staff and would not recommend a visit, sorry.

We had a very enjoyable meal at Browns during our stay at The Mere Hotel; the food was beautiful and almost faultless. However the atmosphere was a bit lacking, there was very few people in such a big space and there was no music on, perhaps an area for improvement. We would return to Browns.

The food was very tasty and well cooked, however the portion sizes were quite irregular; for example my partner ordered lamb whereas I had a steak, and although both were at a similar price mark, the lamb portion was much smaller than the steak.

Excellent food but limited menu. Must be saved as a special treat as a little expensive.

My girlfriend & I had a fantastic night at Browns, the food was of a very high standard,the staff were excellent, Friendly & attentive. They added a nice touch to my girlfriends birthday celebrations, without being asked to do so, which was really appreciated.

Browns is situated in the lobby of The Mere and for me that detracted from the atmosphere. The starter was good we had the mackerel and the scallops. The main dishes took a long time to arrive after the starters and my calf's liver was supposed to be rare while in reality it was past medium going in the direction of well done. Some of the onions served with it were obviously burnt. The food tasted good (apart from the truly burnt bits) While it was an enjoyable enough evening I am not likely to rush back. Did I feel lived up to its billing or to my expectations? Not really

The food was really nice, I had steak which was cooked to perfection my wife had fish which she also enjoyed the guy playing the piano was a nice touch. The food was reasonably priced but the drinks are a little expensive, the only negative was the wedding parties taking place within the hotel as it was a little noisy at times.
