    The meal was good and the service absolutely first rate. It was unfortunate from our point of view that there was a very large party dining at the same time, which with the nature of the room made the place rather noisy. The staff were apologetic about slow service, but really it wasn't anything of the sort!

    Not been for over a year until this week, don't think it's as good as it use to be. poor choice on the set menu, not as classy as it use to be

    A group of ladies went for a meal before an arena concert. The food was amazing the atmosphere great and it was quite reasonably priced. The staff were very attentive and we had a lovely time. The table was ours for as long as we wanted so didn’t feel rushed- overall a very pleasant dinning experience. One of our party was gluten free and she was catered for amazingly. She had an separate menu which was equally as good as the ordinary one if not better- a real treat for her as normally she really struggles to get different food which isn’t boring. All in all we would thoroughly recommend and will be returning at the next opportunity.

    A dissapointing evening, food disgusting !! Really spoilt our Pre Christmas outing, even with refund it couldn’t make up for our dissapointing meal, felt so let down, we have always been pleased in the past.

    I booked the deal with Book a Table however they increased the price on our arrival so we paid more that what we had agreed with the deal. The staff were not overly friendly, a smile and a friendly conversation does not cost anything but improves a visit. The food was excellent and the place itself is very pleasant.

    We had a lovely time at Browns. Both the food and the service were good. We had the early evening menu which was really good value.

    I dined with three friends and we all enjoyed our experience. Food was good although my portion of pasta was very small. We had lovely service from friendly staff and would definitely visit again.

    Excellent food but drink prices are ridiculous - £5.10 for a pint of Peroni!
