Simpsons 333

Squaremeal Review of Simpsons ?

The airy conservatory-style dining room and Greek-inspired landscaped gardens are as lovely as ever, but a recent refurb has made eating at this Michelin-starred Brummie evergreen a “brighter, less formal experience”. Occupying a handsome Georgian townhouse in leafy Edgbaston, Simpsons deservedly remains one of the touchstones for thoroughbred fine dining in the city – with added clout provided by three boutique bedrooms and a cookery school. A new head chef has joined the team, but the kitchen continues to deliver “top-notch” modern food with real vision – whether you pick the set lunch or the “sublime” tasting menu. Measured, thoughtful technique and a respect for the seasons underpin everything, from a starter of mackerel with citrus-cured beetroot, wasabi and lemon sorrel to lamb with summer beans, lovage and sheep’s milk or plaice with cucumber, horseradish, oyster and borage. To conclude, desserts such as hazelnut soufflé with popcorn prove that this is a kitchen with real pedigree. A serious French-accented wine list adds further Michelin-starred gravitas, although staff bring some unaffected charm to proceedings. Simpsons is a big shout for special occasions too.

Must be the best value set lunch around, the £30 for 3 courses includes a half bottle of wine (each), olives, an amuse bouche, a pre pudding, petit fours and a beautiful and huge selection of bread. I had Menu One, my wife Menu Two, faultless stylish cooking, a highlight being the amazing flavour from the slow roast chicken breast. Service formal but not intrusive, only slight moan about the whole experience is my glass of wine at the bar was a stiff £11. Go before they withdraw this offer!!!
