Harden's survey result
This beamed high street dining room, owned by Julie & Tony Cheal, with son Matt (ex-Simpsons) at the stove, is a “really good find”; despite “just an occasional bum note”, the cooking – from six-course tasting menus to “generous” roasts – is high “quality” and “very pretty”, and staff show a “real commitment to the place”.
Ex Simpsons chef Matt Cheal heads the stoves at this old house on a picturesque high street, which is owned by his parents Julie & Tony. The odd disappointment was recorded, but most reports here could not be more glowing for its ambitious cuisine (with the option of a nine-course tasting menu as well as the à la carte).
Matt Cheal, ex-head chef of Simpson’s in Edgbaston set up shop in this old house on the high street towards the end of 2015. Feedback so far is limited, but full of praise for its “interesting menu and well-presented cuisine”.
Matt Cheal, formerly head chef of Simpson’s in Edgbaston, opened in October 2015 at this new venture. Early press and online reports are encouraging.
