“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).
“A great new venture that deserves to do well”, say fans of Andreas Antona's (of Simpson’s, Birmingham) “interesting and original” former pub; it’s also “very expensive”, though, and service can be on the slow side.
