We are regulars but never get bored with the menu as it varies and the welcome we get is wonderful. Love it and are lucky to have it as our local!

A firm family favourite that never disappoints and indeed continues to surprise. Had Sunday lunch from the set menu - specials of pastrami salad and quails breasts on a barley risotto - both fantastic. As ever the service is efficient, very friendly and not intrusive.If you haven't been you don't know what you're missing!

Lunch on a Wednesday and to begin with we were the only ones there. Two of us had the set menu, but our third member couldn't see anything she wanted. Maybe worth considering extending the set items. Starters of duck egg en cocotte and chicken liver salad very good indeed. Same goes for monkfish from the a la carte. Mains of pork belly, hake and pan fried chicken with asparagus risotto all very good, but sauce with chicken had split. As might be expected the a la carte was a good bit dearer than the set menu. Overall pretty good value, will need to go for dinner some time soon.

Tiny & bustling, we have never been disappointed by the food at Ian Brown. It is excellent quality, well cooked, bursting with flavour and always beautifully presented. It's the restaurant for choice for all our family (kids 14 and 16) when we vaguely have something to celebrate - and then sometimes just because we wants a seriously good meal. Front of house is great too - Sheila and team always make you feel like a welcome customer. We rate it for our kids as they are older so they enjoy good food - not for younger fussier kids although Ian is such a great chef he was happy to accomodate my younger child when she wanted a slightly different take on her chosen main.
