    What a fantastic place, our first visit. We immediately felt at ease following a warm welcome from the staff who may I add are friendly, very funny and very knowledgeable about the menu - a real credit to the restaurant - well done. We could not fault the food, every course was lovely, well presented and interesting. For the standard of food, I thought this was great value at £29 per head. I would happily Sunday lunch here every week. The staff are fantastic and there no stuck up food snobbery which instantly allows you to relax and enjoy your dining experience. All in all Carters has gone on my list of favourite restaurants and I'm so glad it's on my doorstep! I'm only kicking myself for not going sooner

    Despite having heard the name 'Carters of Moseley' for a number of years, it was only the recent award as ' Good Food Guide Restaurant of the year' which prompted me to see for myself what all the fuss was about. Why I left it so long I do not know but if our 'taster menu' experience is anything to go by it won't be long before we experience their delights again. Holly the Maitre D and her front of house team ensure a warm welcome and conversation between the delights produced by her partner Brad Carter and her brother Peter in the kitchens. Nice touches included the highlighting of cheaper options of the same grape on the wine list where many restaurants would be happy just to sell the headline higher mark up bottles. A great night.

    I had the five course taster menu at Carters which I really enjoyed, I had booked it for my boyfriend's birthday and it was perfect for a special occassion. However, I don't think it's somewhere I would go regularly. I've have heard that the Sunday lunch is lovely so I would go back and try that. The decor and ambience of the restaurant was very nice and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The drinks were quite expensive but the organic cider was really good.

    What a lovely evening! Super food in a wonderful setting! The food was very good and very much worth a second visit! With Carters the little things matter and this was reflected from the welcome, to the friendly (and welcome!) chit chat to the very swish facilities! (molten brown handwash and hand cream.. lovely!) But for us, although the food was very good... the service really made it! Not too stuffy, knowledgeable and friendly, a huge bonus as when 'fine dining' out, there is always a danger of surroundings and atmosphere being stuffy (and rather pleased with itself!) Very much worth another visit! Thank you for a super evening!

    This was one of the best meals that I have ever had in my life. Met at the door & welcomed by a member of staff who knew my full name. Choice of tables, knowledgeable staff & great ambiance. Food was wonderful subtle tastes, local produce including Pig butter which was moreish & delicious every course was explained to us & nothing was too much trouble. We chose the three courses for £20 which was fabulous value for a true gourmet meal. We loved it so much that we have booked for Christmas Day 2015 Fabulous, even the toilets were an art form.

    We stumbled upon this super little place by accident. Since then we have been returning to this restaurant again and again for their taster menu. The chef is talented and innovative (without being pretentious, faddy or over the top). Every visit the food has been yummy and different. There is a real focus on sustainable and local food (this Sunday we had english truffle). Neither of us eat gluten. At the shortest of notice we are provided with the best gluten free rolls we have ever eaten (with plenty of the moreish butter). Staff are friendly and attentive without being fussy. The second time we visited we were remembered, which is just one of the things which makes Carters' dining experience intimate and friendly.

    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

  • 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.

    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

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 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.
