Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Visited for a second time to celebrate our anniversary and everything was as we had expected. First class food and service. We decided to stay overnight this time and the room was warm, comfortable and tastefully decorated. I don’t think we have stayed anywhere that...provides as many choices of tea / coffee in the room and the provision of fresh milk in a small fridge was much appreciated.Dinner and drinks service was quiet and efficient, food choices are sufficient to cover most peoples’ requirements and was superb in taste / presentation. When staying overnight you can look forward to a breakfast of equal quality to the dinner service, again served with a friendly smile, what’s not to like, I think we will have to visit at a similar time each year from now.More

Plainly a dining venue rather than a wet pub, we had a great meal here whist visiting my 92 year old mother, who lives locally. Food was excellent - plenty of finesse but neatly married to a generous outlook on portion size. The flavour combinations...were unusual and interesting - lamb scotch eggs were just as intriguing and lip-smacking as they sounded. The assiette of pork too was marvellous. The combination of the two meant that I was well and truly beaten when it came to the dessert menu. Pricing was fair, service was attentive and charming, delivery was speedy and the ambience and decor/furnishings were smart, if slightly formal. Perfect for a grand-motherly occasion. Many thanks - we would certainly recommend a visit to The Brownlow Arms and hope to be able to follow our own advice 'ere long.More

This was our second trip to the brownlow arms for Sunday lunch. Although a little more expensive it is worth every penny. A beautiful setting, lovely dining room and friendly staff. The cheese soufflé starter was to die for, and the roast loin of pork...with all the trimmings was cooked to perfection. Beautiful presentation and piping hot. Can’t wait for our next visit!More

My wife and I went for Sunday lunch and I can honestly say that it was spectaulaly good ,probably the best Sunday lunch we've ever had, from the moment we arrived we were greeted by a lovely lady who guided us to the lovely bar...area where we sat and looked through the delicious menu, the decor is delightful and the the staff were welcoming and informative. Our table was prepared with beautiful clean crisp cotton table linen and super comfortable chairs , the waiting staff were attentive but not intrusive and the food presentation was on point and professional, at times I had to remind myself that the place is a pub not a Michelin starred restaurant such is the standard, it has a lovely ambience too. The food was absolutely delicious and very generous portions . I cant wait to go back if I'm honest ! Thank you so much for a fantastic experience.More

Visited for Sunday lunch with absolutely no expectations as was booked by family but was throughly enjoyable from the moment stepped foot inside. Each member of the team was very attentive (but in a very natural way). We visited with my children (6yrs and 3yrs),...it was so nice they were spoken too directly, made them feel special (if you haven’t got kids this is rarer than you perhaps think!). Food and drink was excellent, perhaps best lunch had in years…and that poacher soufflé, not stopped thinking about it. Rebooked for my birthday next month, can’t wait. Well done.More

Great place to visit and quality food Service team all need more training.. also a uniform or appropriate clothing to suit the restaurant. Perhaps to show the customer that they are being served would help. Not pouring wine or offering water for the table seems...to lessen the value on the prices charged. Throw it on the table Ieave you to it then .. wine not shown to the table. Just left to be poured.. no presentation at all . Food was delicious and adequate with reasonable portions, though dessert somewhat expensive Just the finesse of a quality “waited on” service is missing in my opinion The check “is everything ok ?” Was way too late in the meal .. too late by then anyway Owner is very friendly and welcoming and makes an effort to make sure of a welcoming smile. Restaurant is not a cheap place and after we hat must be 20-30 years toilets need an clean and an updateMore

Lovely country hotel / restaurant. The Brownlow arms is a charming country inn with comfortable rooms. The owner / manageress Loraine could not have been more helpful. The breakfast was very nice. I had the yoghurt with berries followed by scrambled eggs and smoked salmon....Tea, coffee and fruit juice with lovely fresh toast. We didn't eat in the restaurant as we had other plans but the menu looked very good and locals rave about the food. All in all a very good stay.More

We’ve eaten at the Brownlow Arms very happily on previous occasions. And once again the food was excellent, really good. Unfortunately the current receptionist and waiting staff need educating in how to look after their customers: more caring and less brusqueness would be appreciated, please....And we’ve never been called “darling” ever before in what purports to be an upmarket eating house. Must do betterMore

Underwhelming really, came here expecting great things, and it was nice, don’t get me wrong, but nothing special? Certainly not as nice as other places around here. Strange one really. Not sure why this is rated so highly.

Sorry for the delayed response - children are welcome on weekday and Saturday lunches and we do indeed have a child's menu. We do not allow under 8s for evening dining or Sunday lunch.
