This “good-looking” spin-off from Andreas Antona’s suave Simpsons in Birmingham features “faultless food” from talented chef Adam Bennett – and it’s certainly “more restaurant than pub” these days. There is one consistent grumble however: there’s “an intelligent and wide-ranging wine list, but one or two less expensive bottles wouldn’t go amiss”.
“For my local hostelry to have Adam Bennett as chef producing food of such quality, prepared with such flair and skill is a real privilege (and must be adding untold thousands to my property!)” – this “relaxed” venture complete with “smiling and helpful” staff successfully provides “precise cuisine” of a level of ambition you might not anticipate from its “well-presented pub interior”. Lovely garden in summer.
‘Great British Chef’ Adam Bennett “goes from strength to strength” at this “informal” pub – hailed by fans as “200% improved!” since it was relaunched by Andreas Antona (ex- of Simpson’s, Brum) two years back; let’s just “hope the chef’s ambition and obvious talent do not outgrow the attractions of this pleasant hostelry”.
Andreas Antona’s (of Simpson’s Birmingham) “delightful” year-old former pub comprises two dining areas, a bar and “tranquil garden”. In the kitchen, ‘Great British Chef’ Adam Bennett “has lived up to his early great promise” with “superb” cooking from a variety of menus (including a tasting option).
