Award: One Michelin star, three AA Rosettes
Chef: Adam Stokes
Adam spent seven years at Hambleton Hall in Leicestershire, under Aaron Patterson. Then in 2008, he became head chef at Glenapp Castle, Scotland, aged twenty-six. In the four years he stayed in Scotland, he secured a fourth AA rosette and his first Michelin star, only a few days before his 30th birthday.
In 2013, Adam moved to Bennet’s Hill, Birmingham, where he and his wife Natasha initially set up their two-year trial restaurant, Adams. Less than six months after opening, they were awarded a Michelin star – only the fourth restaurant in Birmingham with this recognition, with three AA rosettes following shortly after. They moved to their current location in 2016.
Visit: 22 April 2017, long lunch for four.
Review: Service was genuinely excellent. The food is fabulous and presented in interesting and innovative ways. This is one of my favourite restaurants in Birmingham. Check out my earlier review for Adams.
We chose the option 2 wine pairing.
I will be going back!
