Review on The Brownlow Arms
From the outside the handsome Brownlow Arms looks rather like a bijou country house hotel, although it still plays the part of an old-fashioned inn with rooms. Dating back to the seventeenth century, it was formerly owned by Lord Brownlow and his crest still adorns the sign outside.
Food is served in two rather formal, traditionally attired dining rooms, and you can also eat al fresco on the landscaped back terrace in fine weather. The kitchen delivers a raft of seasonal dishes with a modern accent – for instance, pan-roasted quail with buttered spinach, confit onions, game croûton, red wine and thyme jus or fillet of sea bass on saffron and lovage mash with lemon and chive beurre blanc. There are also more traditional items like home-potted shrimps and braised blade of beef, while desserts could encompass anything from rice pudding with apricot compote to rhubarb parfait with mango and pineapple ice cream.
