Too limited feedback this year for a rating of this flagship dining room, whose many accolades have established it as a bastion of the Midlands hospitality scene. The property is currently emerging from major investment under long-term owners, the Hills, who have recently added ‘Smoke’ and ‘Grace & Savour’ – see also. BREAKING NEWS: In November 2022, it was announced that Peels will close in favour of a ‘comfort food’ formula.

This Victorian manor house (with 15 bedrooms) is one of the grand dames of the Midlands hospitality scene, although – under proprietors the Hills, who have owned it since 1986 – it is in the middle of repositioning itself not just as a hotel, but as a provider of ‘immersive staycation experiences’ as ‘a spiritual home for the food lover’. There’s a new sibling to Peel’s (see Smoke), a new trendy bakery in the grounds, and new suites opening in 2022. Peel’s itself occupies a wood panelled chamber and is still the main culinary event, where chef Darren Meacham produces a six-course tasting menu, matched with (sometimes funky natural) wine pairings. On all reports, “celebrating a special occasion at Peel’s is itself a truly special experience”.

The Hill family’s classy restaurant-with-rooms, nestled in the Birmingham ’burbs, continues to win solid marks – if on limited feedback – for its refined and original food (spanning afternoon tea and tasting menus, best sampled in their intimate tasting room). Bonus points for their regular drinks tasting evenings (“first and last time I’ll try orange wine but it was a great opportunity to experience something very different!”)

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).
