Wonderful. Superb service, food an ambience from every individual from start to finish. We couldn’t fault it. Food impeccable. Winter tasting menu was beyond our expectations and difficult to pick a favourite . Stand outs were... treats from the kitchen.. .the haddock .... the eggy pud and the mint choccy chip....the emotions of cheese and pineapple... the venison. Impeccable . Loved it all

It was all a delightful experience. The service was excellent throughout and the menu was well balanced and all tasted really good. I really enjoyed the Pollock and clams, but difficult to choose as it all went well together. The charcoal meringues were fun too. We were advised on our choice of wine and the suggestions were excellent and just what we wanted.

Very enjoyable experience. We opted for the three course lunch because my wife does not like a big meal, however, we both felt the five course option would have been better.

This time we had the Brummie tapas oh my word every mouthful was so full of flavour, if you’ve never been to this restaurant it really is a must I’ve had all the menus now and would recommend any of them Glen when it comes to food your a genius!!

Service was excellent. Service team was helpful, professional and present when necessary. Some very nice wines by the glass were recommended off-menu which was very reasonably priced and matched our request. Food was also excellent. Wife's favourite dish was the duck (which was cooked perfectly) and the 10/10/10 egg surprise dessert. I loved the Pork belly dish and the beef carpaccio starter. Perhaps for me the weakest dish was the chocolate & hazelnut tart - it was very good but 'nothing really special'. Would have appreciated a little more variety & options in the non-alcoholic drinks section for those trying to avoid alcohol. Sommelier / drinks specialist should look into this space as it is really developing fast - some of your competition is doing a stellar job in this department (even offering a non-alcoholic drinks pairing).
