Harden's survey result
Celebrating its fifth year in 2020, the Cheal family’s dining room on the high street attracted somewhat mixed feedback in the latest survey. In all reports, son Matt Cheal’s ambitious cuisine attracts ratings that are decent to outstanding, but prices are not bargain basement (the three-course meal in the evening is £55 and six-course tasting menu is £77), and the sceptical view is that it’s “rather disappointing” given the expense.
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”.
