we had the 5 course taster menu, all very good. service to start very slow, nearly 30mins before we received any wine! after chasing service was excellent. we expected to try the flight of wine but the somellier said it wasnt available at lunch! after ordering a variety of wines by the glass we were informed they could have served the flight. overall a very good dining experience

We had 5 course taster lunch and it was all lovely. We love fish and therefore the cod and trout was extra special.

Fantastic, I now understand the difference between a Michelin star resturant and the rest. We'd like to thank the staff for helping to make the experience very special.

Service exceptional. Had a set menu offer. Everything was beautifully cooked and although the portions looked quite small it was more than enough for each member of my party. The one course we were disappointed in was the meat course. Once again it was beautifully cooked but was no where near hot enough. Had a bit of a shock with the cost of the pre meal drinks - £18 for a small glass of champagne is pushing it!

The special lunch deal we enjoyed was excellent value, and the food and service were great.

We had an amazing meal - my first visit.
We had the grazing menu and it was really delish!
The staff were very welcoming and friendly. We commented that they were all very knowledgeable about the menu as we asked two or three several questions about some of the elements.
A great experience! Have signed up for the newsletter to keep in touch. Will certainly come back some time (I don't live in Birmingham)

An exceptional dining experience, the ambiance, service and food were all first rate. The welcome on arriving was professional but very friendly and the staff were all knowledgeable being able to answer any questions regarding the dishes and wines easily.
We had the six course taster menu and were not disappointed as we enjoyed every course, our favourite being the lemon meringue pie. We will certainly be returning in the future
