“A great upgrade to a fine old pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

On the recommendation of some friends we decided to go to The Brownswood for Sunday lunch. It is just as well we reserved a table as it is obviously a popular place and we would not have got a table otherwise. The decor is really nice and the refurbishment has kept a lot of the original features in place, like the really nice cut glass mirrors and window features. On offer are plenty of real ales and other such drinks, and very nice they are. Also the exposed kitchen puts out really good food. Unfortunately, and not immediately obvious, is that the menu on a Sunday comprises no started and ONLY the roasts on offer. So I was a bit disappointed to find out that my choices from the menu were not on offer. However, I soon got over myself on receipt of a good plate of proper Sunday roast. Lovely lamb, lovely roast potatoes, decently cooked vegetables, a Yorkshire pudding and gravy. Certainly it was quality over quantity and if you want to eat huge groaning plates of food, then this is not for you. Also it is, in my opinion, good value considering how much you could expect to pay elsewhere.
