Simpsons offers something a little more unique than the usual fine dining experience. The restaurant is part of the Calthorpe Estate and located in a beautiful Georgian Grade II listed building.

The cuisine is described as ‘light, modern dishes based on classical French cuisine’. Their exclusive cookery school also offers you the chance to join the talented chefs and learn how to cook Michelin approved dishes in a fully equipped kitchen.
The aim of Carters of Mosely, is to ‘be an expression of British Terroir’ which, to us lay folk, means the restaurant aim to take advantage of a number of factors in their food, including climate, soil and environment which each give British produce a distinctive flavour and character. The menus are developed to follow the rhythms of the seasons, inspired by the changing seasonal ingredients available in any given month and inspired by the producers who work on the British landscape. The restaurant is unassuming and the type of place you may not look twice at not knowing its reputation. The simple and stylish interiors are enhanced by an open kitchen where you can witness the talented team in action.
Peel’s is a little further out of town than our other recommendations but is worth the travel. This excellent fine dining experience is part of the Hampton Manor in Solihull and offers a sophisticated and modern atmosphere complemented by a menu offering the same. Their food and ingredients are inspired by their Victorian walled garden. They are proud of the relationships they have built with their trusted suppliers and only accept the best produce from this island’s farms and shores. They also offer an impressive collection of handcrafted organic and natural wines from their cellar.
