Staff were excellent, food quality ranged from good to excellent but how can a restaurant run out of white wine except for the most expensive bottle or the house white!! Wine list was extensive but very little choice available. Having said that, would not stop me returning

Very poor experience. Went to celebrate our wedding anniversary. They had NO champagne, but had 6 on the wine list. No specials on offer, steak was fatty and over cooked. The menu was a piece of scruffy A4 paper. Both my wife and myself felt poorly next day. Have been a regular customer at this place for many years. It’s really gone down hill. Don’t think we will be back.

Staff were very good in very difficult conditions.. It was a busy night with a full pre booked restaurant yet there was only one member of staff on the bar and the staff upstairs were very over stretched. They worked incredibly hard but did not have opportunity to properly check on us or get drinks. The restaurant was incredibly hot and uncomfortable for us and the staff... This needs to be addressed to make this a pleasant place to be for all. The food was good and staff were doing the very best they could.. With a few more it would make all the difference.

Apart from the unfortunate episode of the ceiling, which was beyond the control of the restaurant the meal was pleasant. All starters were delicious. One main meal let down by the chips being under cooked and tasting very oily which was rectified. Steaks were very average, Seabass and lamb cutlets were excellent. Deserts were again delicious.

Booked for a graduation meal, food was incredible but we found the service to be slow and inattentive. It seemed like the staff were really pushed and looked stressed and tired.

Truly, truly disappointed that we arrived for drinks following my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary vows renewal to find one member of staff on behind the bar. We had pre arranged the visit and obviously had a booking confirmation so it was not a surprise a group of 40 arrived at once. It was nearly 30 degrees outside yet we were queuing for nearly 20mins for drinks. I had used Browns as it was a perfect location and somewhere I use regularly. Very very disappointed.

My wife and I both enjoyed delicious meals. The customer service was very good, friendly waitresses and didn't have to wait long for our food choices. When we arrived about 6:30pm we sat on our own for a while upstairs but we prefer a quieter atmosphere. An hour later it was a lot fuller. We can recommend and would return again.

The service was friendly and prompt. The food was beautiful and the decor is really lovely. I think it's a bit of a hidden lunch time gem, the food was great value for money! The only reason I marked down was due to one meal coming out incorrectly but it was corrected quickly and we thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. Thank you.

We were extremely disappointed with lunch last Sunday. We've had many lovely meals in the past but this time the food was overcooked (even burnt in the case of the apple crumble), stodgy (the Vegetable Wellington) or bore no resemblance to the dish we expected (the Eton Mess). And it took over two and a half hours to serve three course to four people!

we enjoyed our meal in the restaurant, but my friend who has a disability with her leg had difficulty with using the stairs to the first floor. Staff were attentive and helpful, but the same difficulty with using the stairs. However one of the servers greatly assisted by letting my friend use the staff entrance where I could put my car. to save her using the outside steps Thank you

We organised a conference dinner for 60 people and the food and the service was amazing! Chicken liver parfait smooth and tasty, lamb cooked to perfection and the trio of deserts superb. If we organise this again in Lboro we’ll surely come to Browns Lane Restaurant! I personally will come back again for lunch/dinner :-)

Always friendly service and lovely restaurant. Great food all round. Delay on one pudding and one sent back to reheat custard. Immediately told they would both be free of charge. Would recommend

Didnt enjoy my pudding so I left it. I wasnt asked if it was ok, it was just taken. When getting the bill we had to wait a while. It was busy so that is understandable. We weren't asked how our meals were otherwise I would have said about not eating my pudding due to it tasting like cheese, it was panacotta. A real shame as it was our first night out since having our baby 5 months ago and I had a pudding when I got home. I should have complained but it was taken in such a rush I didn't have the opportunity. Eaten at browns alot which I why we chose it and left disappointed and hungry!
