Really lovely atmosphere and staff! However, the food was a little bit under seasoned, though it won’t stop me from coming back for another meal!

Very disappointed in the portion sizes of the C tapas we ordered. Very small and not value for money. The food itself was very tasty but not enough. It was supposed to all come with bread but we had just a couple of chunks. We ordered chicken wings and 3 came between 2 of us !!!

I thought the food was very poor not good quality and expensive for what we received i understand that covid has impacted and that its table service but too ages to get served for drinks i could understand if the restaurant was busy but there were only four tables occupied

Very nice if a little over priced. Certainly the most aesthetically pleasing venue in the town centre

Not much choice on menu. Only gave it a 4* For value because it was 50%off. Would not be happy paying full price. First impressions The garden was over grown, and rubbish in garden.

I am really sorry but we were very disappointed We have been to the restaurant several times before and loved it and we chose it to take some friends who were visiting. I was really embarrassed at the quality of the food, the joke that was the wine list and the lack of compassion from the waitresses while we were going through it all The tapas dishes were far too small and the ice cream portion was a joke along with the selection of desserts We were offered one of three bottles of wine?? We had two of the three, neither of which we would have chosen if there was a normal wine list. The wine was given without any pricing, how do we know that we were charged correctly? All in all a very disappointing experience and it will be a long time before we come again and will not be recommending you on this occasion 1 star

I was very very disappointed with my experience of Brown's Lane on Saturday evening! It was my son's 21st so I wanted it to be special! There was no atmosphere in the restaurant! The service was good but fir the prices of the food the quality was very poor! My husband had a steak which was so tough he couldn't cut it my son didn't enjoy his burger and my tapas was very over priced! I won't be returning soon!

Restaurant Response

Good afternoon, Firstly thank you for taking the time to leave a review, we welcome all feedback but I do need to address some of your comments so that your review is fair. Not sure what it was you would like but in the restaurant we had music playing as we always do, had you wanted it a bit livelier then you would have been welcome to sit in the bar area. I do know you were not too happy with the fact you had to be put on 2 tables but as stated on the night this is the government guidelines and we will adhere to them to keep our other guests safe. Your table was decorated with balloons and confetti as requested. All meals were eaten and on meal check everyone said how lovely it was. There was a conversation regarding your husbands steak to which he was compensated as goodwill because again although he said he didn't enjoy it, it was actually eaten and he was very grateful for the goodwill. Not at any point did anyone express their unhappiness because unlike now when all I can do is address your inaccuracies on the night I could have actually done something about it although what I'm not sure as everyone drank their drinks and ate their food. We brought out your cake for you and packed away your decorations. I struggle to understand your review but if you would like to discuss further then do please feel free to call us. Kind regards The Team @ Browns Lane

A lovely evening under Covid secure restrictions. Felt safe and that security provisions were in place. Clear distancing guidance in place. Our first venture out as a family for a meal since lockdown and would certainly feel comfortable in booking again. Meal was served at a pleasant pace allowing time to talk between courses. Didn’t feel rushed - a nice relaxed evening with good food enabling us to enjoy each other’s company in a way that hasn’t been possible over the past few months.
