“A very small restaurant in the small, attractive, well-heeled north Worcestershire village of Barnt Green with tables and a counter at which some diners are sat in very close proximity of the culinary action”. With just 18 seats, it’s owned by chef Andrew Sheridan, and although he recently left Brum for his native Liverpool, he continues to show an interest locally with the August 2023 acquisition of nearby coffee and brunch venue, The Garrity. At Black & Green, his team “delivers a well-balanced six-course tasting menu, often with original ingredients. Many of the dishes are brought to table by the chefs themselves”.

In June 2022 (after our annual diners’ poll had concluded), Andrew Sheridan of Birmingham’s Eight (see also) with partners Sam & Emma Morgan opened this new 16-seat restaurant in a small village outside Brum (near the intersection of the M6 and M42). It serves a duo of seven-course and eight-course ‘micro-seasonal’ menus for £60 per person and £70 per person.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
