    A great evening from informal friendly yet informative waiting staff to a super five course tasting menu with a few surprises bread in a bag with not only butter but dripping what a dream could go off butter ! Lots of different tastes beautifully tender grouse local damsons and buttermilk mousse much more. One of the best kept cheese plates ever room temperature tasty and yielding didn't need biscuits or chutney though both were available . Would we go again you bet can't wait to try the other menu options. Wine list good affordable wines such a shame that so many good restaurants have such a massive mark up on wines tends to make choosing a good wine elitist another star for birmingham go brum! X

    We visited Carters on a Saturday evening and had the 5 course tasting menu. The food was lovely and included things that we probably wouldn't usually have ordered but enjoyed. The restaurant is small and intimate with a nice relaxed ambience. Excellent service from all the staff. Highly recommend.

  • Best plate of food in Ten Years
    PPDSwiss
    Dined on 29/8/2014
    Carters of Moseley are incredible. Our evening meal was a set menu, five courses of the most incredible flavours, textures and quality. The Game course alone was the best plate of food I've had in ten years. We included their optional Wine Matching and had a new glass of wine with each course, again ideally picked to compliment the plate. The waiting staff were friendly, knowledgable, interesting and completed added to the experience. An evening meal with wine matching will set you back £85 so it is a pricey night out. You get what you pay for though.

    I went to Carters of Moseley with my boyfriend for our Anniversary. The food and service were both of very good quality. I enjoyed the starter the most which was a different take on bacon and eggs. We received complimentray bread and a some lovely chocolate at the end with 'Happy Anniversary' written with chocolate sauce. I would recommend Carters to friends and family for more special occassions

    We have been meaning to go to Carters for ages as it's rated so highly. It was even better. 5 course set menu was outstanding. All locally sourced food if possible. Michelin star rated food, with their own take on each course. Each course was carefully presented. The service was so personal, all questions answered and each course explained with great knowledge. We didn't do the wine match as one of us was driving. Will do next time. Beautiful experience and fantastic food, finished with home made chocolate wrapped in foil in a tin. Was lovely. Can't wait to go again.

    I've been waiting to be in Moseley child free to try out Carters and it was worth the wait! Home made bread with flour milled locally in Sarehole Mill, with pig butter, my Nan was in seventh heaven. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. The food was outstanding, taste and presentation. Liked to quirky treacle pudding severed in a golden syrup pot. Can't wait to go back.

    We had another wonderful experience of Carters on Saturday night. For the first time, we brought a friend who was a vegetarian and were so thrilled to see that the food presented to her was as creative and delicious as ours. Holly and the other front of house staff were as warm and as informative and helpful as ever. We are so thrilled that the Good Food Guide has recognised what a wonderful little gem Carters is and congratulations to Holly and Brad on their much deserved success!

    The service throughout was very good - attentive without being over-bearing. Each of the waiters/waitresses had good knowledge of the food, and explained each course of the tasting menu to us. At £45 a head for the 5 course tasting menu, it's not cheap, but each course was excellent, and for a special occassion, it is well worth a visit

    Went to Carter's for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. Staff were very welcoming and super-friendly, making us feel relaxed and welcome as soon as we walked in. Our meals were delicious. Staff are highly knowledgeable about the provenance of ingredients and were ready and able to recommend suitable wine to accompany our meals. The food was presented beautifully and very well paced so we had enough time to digest before the next course. We can't wait to go back again and would highly recommend it!

    We had the tasting menu on a Wednesday night. There were several things on the menu that if they had been on an a la carte menu, i would not have chosen them. However, i have to say the entire tasting menu was fantastic, the service superb and i will certainly be going back again Carters was at least on a par, if not better, than the Michelin starred restaurants in Birmingham

    Excellent local restaurant that i would love at the bottom of my road. We had the lunch set menu with smoked ricotta and air dried tuna salad and delicious pork fillet, there was room for the lovely english cheese which miracle of miracles was at room temperature and delicious. Very interesting wine list including unusual ones from Gascony. I have already booked a return trip, fantastic.

    We first dined at Carter's of Moseley on our wedding anniversary on May 8th and the food and service was outstanding so we returned on Friday just for a pay day treat. The ambience of Carters is very relaxed but you are always made to feel exceptionally welcome. The staff are professional and are knowledgable about the food and wine but it is in such a relaxed and informal manner it is not pompous or too formal. The menu was exquisite on Friday and my husband and I particularly loved the snacks of chicken liver parfait with cereal and the cods roe. The evening went on with an elegant fish course with gooseberries, a fine lamb and a truly delicious strawberry desert. We have dined in Simpsons and Purnell's, Carter's is the new favourite.

    Just a fairly quick line to say what a great evening my wife & I had at Carters. It was a Birthday/Anniversary celebration so we opted for somewhere a bit special. The staff couldn't have been more attentive & the knowledge about each course was admirable.The timing between the courses was spot on, never left waiting but never rushed. Overall a great night & we will be back.

    .Had not visited the restaurant before so came with an open mind,found the decor clean and interesting with a small bag of bread on the table. the flour was locally sourced from Sarehole Mill . We both started with mackerel covered with cucumber in a gooseberry sauce. very tasty .Main for myself a sea trout, in a mustard dressing. you had one portion of veg which was asparagus. i chose to forgo this and had new potatoes instead, consisting of two small new potatoes.It was cooked to perfection. cheese was an extra which we were glad to pay extra for. three English cheeses and 5 biscuits. my friend had a lamb faggot which he thoroughly enjoyed and veg were the same.

    Enjoyed a lovely Sunday Lunch Menu here with a friend for her birthday meal. The house bread was beautiful as was the butter that came with it. The entire menu was delicious - the purple carrots were my favourite...not to mention the sublime almond rhubarb crumble! They even brought out a complimentary couple of chocolates (home made, spice-infused) for us to enjoy to mark the special occasion. The service was good, although I found some servers to go the extra mile and others less so. On the whole, though, they were all friendly and it was a lovely little place with great ambience and no sense of being rushed at all. Service was a bit patchy at times with clumsiness and, from one of the servers, a tone short of polite.

    Overall a great meal. A few comments which we hope you find constructive. 1. As the menu is fixed there should perhaps be one or two options for diners who don't like a particular dish. I did get a call asking if there was anything we didn't like but that seems a bit hit and miss to us. 2. It would have been nice to have the bread served with the starters rather than almost as a separate course. 3. A little more information on the wine list would have been useful, particularly on country of origin and grape variety. Otherwise a really enjoyable meal with great food and service

I'm a massive foodie and have eaten at some of the top restaurants in the world - the food at carters is spectacular, definitely Michelin star standard!

    On this our first visit we enjoyed a midweek 3 course lunch. All three courses were superbly cooked and the presentation was of a very high order. The main courses were especially delightful. We sampled both the lamb which was beautifully tender and the cod which was delicious. Eating the sticky toffee pudding from the Golden Syrup tin was a challenge but worth pursuing. The home made bread was to die for. We certainly will be returning to enjoy another excellent value for money meal in the near future.
