Review on Browns Lane Bar & Restaurant
Browns Lane Bar & Restaurant is located a short walk from the centre of the vibrant town of Loughborough. The smart two storey building has a contemporary décor with exposed brick walls, beamed interiors and designer wallpaper. Downstairs is a stylish bar with comfy chairs, ideal for a relaxed drink, or an aperitif before or after dinner and there's an outside terrace with parasols for al fresco dining.
The main dining room is situated upstairs and offers a modern British menu with a twist, using the finest seasonal local produce. Expect the likes of baked scallops topped with parmesan crumble and treacle bacon on salsify and roasted garlic puree with pea shoots or steamed pork and ginger dumplings with pak choi paired sweet soy dipping sauce amongst the starters. Main courses offer fillet of beef on sautéed baby leaf spinach topped with crispy pancetta served with wild mushrooms in open puff pastry pie, topped with creamy stroganoff sauce or from the sea there's pan-fried monkfish wrapped in pancetta oven baked with purple broccoli and caramelised roasted garlic and broccoli puree. The menu also offers a selection of salads, pizzas or pastas in the shape of king prawns with fresh linguini tossed in butter, courgettes, garlic, chilli and parsley. When it comes to desserts you might see apple and toffee crumble tart with clotted cream and toffee sauce or peanut butter and caramel brownie with vanilla ice cream and raspberry coulis.
The well chosen wine list hits the target with plenty of lively drinking on offer, together with a tasty cocktail menu.
