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!”)

Afternoon tea is much-recommended at this “fabulous oasis of excellence” – the Hill family’s stately restaurant with rooms, set in 45 acres on the outskirts of Birmingham. Still less feedback than we would like – but all very positive – on dining here, with options including a four-course or seven-course set menu.

This very stately manor set in 45 acres on the outer fringes of Brum received a gong from the tyre men last year, but still inspires very few reviews. Such as came through are ecstatic however: “with a recently awarded star you expect the food to be of a high standard, but it is the innovative nature of the menu and the warm and welcoming service which makes Peel’s a truly marvellous dining experience. (Oh! And take a good look at the silk hand embroidered wallpaper in the dining room)”.

For 30 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).

Have you eaten at Peel's?

Owner's description

Food and drink is at the centre of what we do, with Michelin starred, four AA rosette Peel’s restaurant running as the living heart of the building. We take you off the beaten track with our seasonal, hand crafted, and local products and produce.

Head Chef Rob Palmer creates simple dishes using seasonal produce, often picked from the Manor’s own kitchen gardens, cooked using modern techniques. His aim is not to alienate his guests by presenting them with something unrecognisable on a plate. Instead he looks to the seasons and to our Victorian roots to present utterly English menus.

Peel’s restaurant is open Tuesday to Saturday for dinner reservations from 7pm-9pm.
