Boasting AA Rosette-winning food, Oaks Bar & Grill, in the beautiful countryside east of Birmingham, is the luxurious restaurant integrated into the Forest of Arden Marriotts Hotel. With bold and exotic European and Asian influences pervading the cuisine, the grill is the focal point.

Taking pride in the fresh, English ingredients, but infusing these with international flavours, the Oaks Bar & Grill menu also has classically English and continental breakfasts. Mouth-watering dishes include pappardelle with roasted vegetables, asparagus shavings, roasted garlic, pecorino and pinenut pesto, and venison pie with roast parsnips, ale gravy and mash.

In the quite stunning Forest of Arden Marriott Hotel, the surrounding woods and ponds ensure that views from the restaurant’s grand windows are always sublime. The spacious, open-plan interior favours a clean and modern design, with whitewashed walls and sleek furniture brightening the room. The darker, yet elegant, bar is more intimate, with plush sofas and comfy stools to enjoy the meticulously compiled wine list.

Nestled in the remote West Midlands countryside, Oaks Bar & Grill is still just 20 minutes’ drive to Birmingham Airport.

    We decided not to eat here after arriving sitting down and looking at the menu. Poor selection of food. And buffet option was limited although they sell it as "5 course" bloody expensive for what it is

    Great choice!

    We had the Christmas menu and it was very good value for money. The food was good but it was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff - particularly Nitesh - that made our evening.

    Cakes were lovely, staff friendly

    I didn't think the buffet food was very good. The soup for starters was lovely but did not think much of the mains. The chicken was tasteless and the veg was awful! The deserts were OK the chocolate sponge was very dry.

    Sogand was our waitress and her plain talking, wonderful sense of humour and generosity made the experience. She was incredibly knowledgeable about the menu and made excellent recommendations to me and my husband. She also ensured we felt spoiled for our anniversary by arranging for a glass of proscecco each and a complimentary shared pudding.
