SquareMeal Review of Simpsons

Silver Award

Greek-inspired landscaped gardens set a formal tone here, although we reckon the mood in Simpsons’ airy conservatory-style dining room is much more casual these days. Occupying a handsome Georgian townhouse in leafy Edgbaston, this Michelin-starred thoroughbred is “outstanding from the moment you walk in” – with added clout provided by boutique bedrooms and a cookery school (renamed the Eureka Kitchen). Overseen by chef director Luke Tipping, this venue delivers top-drawer modern food with real vision. Measured, thoughtful technique and a respect for the seasons underpin everything, from a starter of Wye Valley asparagus with Beesands crab, XO mayonnaise and crispy rice to Cornish lamb with tomato and courgette tart, spinach and black garlic or Brixham turbot partnered by sprouting broccoli, sea kale, monk’s beard and shellfish cream. To conclude, a dessert involving white chocolate, gariguette strawberry sorbet and almond further emphasises Simpson’s pedigree. A serious French-accented wine list adds gravitas, although staff bring some unaffected local charm to proceedings while making everyone “feel special”. 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!!!
