The trouble is its winter here in England so not a lot of sun, I keep it at the front of our house which is south facing so it does get what little sun there is. Should I remove brown bits, and what feed would you recomend.

Yes, I'd remove the browned off stuff. It will probably require only touching it with your fingers and it will fall off.
Unless the tree is dying, it will probably not lose much more of it's growth, and come back strong in the spring.
I would not feed it anything now. Heel it in under a mulch pile and let it ride out the winter on the south side of the house, out of the wind if possible.
