McKee's Brasserie has become the gourmet headquarters for Balsall Common villagers and foodies from neighbouring Coventry and Solihull. With its themed menu nights and cooking club classes, McKee's restaurant attracts locals as well as business types from the Birmingham airport and tourists from Stratford-upon-Avon and Warwick Castle. The warm and inviting coffee and caramel toned dining room is traditional with its candlelit tables and low-lit lamps, and treats from the restaurant's modern Brit menu include the tiger prawn salad in a lime, coriander, lemon, soy and garlic dressing; the half a duck served with leek and strips of bacon topped with port sauce; and the warm brownie served with berries and pistachio ice cream.

This was our second visit for a Sunday lunch after being impressed on the first occasion and once again it was a most enjoyable experience. The menu offers a good selection to suit all tastes and is and the three course option on offer is great value. The dining area is comfortable and a very relaxed atmosphere. The food is cooked to a very good standard even though I would have liked my roast potatoes a little crispier. The service is excellent and the staff make you very welcome. Would have no issues recommending this restaurant to friends.

I had lunch at McKee's with 3 friends two of whom had not eaten there before. We all agreed that it was a superb experience with great food and very friendly and efficient service. Value for money is exceptional.

We often go to McKee's Brasserie's "themed evenings". They are imaginative and great value. They nearly always incorporate a welcome drink and coffee/tea at the end which so many offers elsewhere charge you for. It also helps that we can walk there!

We have been to several places for a meal with friends recently, in this area and the meal we had with you was by far the best. We have also had family and friends parties at The Haig and have been extremely satisfied both with the service and the food. Keep it up.

We were attending a meeting at the NEC on Saturday and stayed in nearby Berkswell as it was close and convenient. As I had to work on Friday we did not arrive until early evening and booked a table with two other friends for 19.30, we arrived a little late but were still given time to have a drink in the var and look at the menus before going into the dining room. The service was very personal but not intruding and the food was excellent. I would definitely recommend the restaurant.....in fact I already have and would 100% visit the next time we are in the area.

We are regulars at this popular restaurant. We like it's rather old fashioned ambience including linen drapery. Service is always efficient and unobtrusive. The menu is wide-ranging and includes old favourites as well as more modern combinations. The food is well presented. McKee's is a good place to bring the whole family, old and young for a convivial meal.

A great place to dine, I had organised a table for 8 persons for a car club reunion, because of an 80th birthday party in the main restaurant we were given a side room which was perfect for our needs and reflects well on the management and staff.
Our evening meal could not have been better and I shall continue to use McKee's at Haigs' Hotel in future

We went for Mother's Day lunch, three generations ranging in age from 70 to 4. The restaurant was very busy but, as ever, the food and the service were beyond excellent. McKee's Brasserie has an extensive menu which changes monthly and never fails to please. We are very lucky to have this restaurant in Balsall Common and we recommend it without hesitation.

Been to this restaurant on a couple of occasions and each and every time there’s always a warm welcome.

The food and service have always been first class and so far never disappointed by my menu choices.

There’s a really nice unhurried atmosphere at this restaurant and the team are always so very friendly.

Certainly not my last visit and looking forward to trying one of the many themed events in the near future.

Highly recommend.

The food was excellent, couldn't fault any of it. I also love the fact that each month the menu changes.

Been here many times before, but my meal was not the usual high standard. The meat , pork and ham I feel had been standing from the first service. Our time was 2.30pm as the earlier sitting was fully booked.

This would have been a 5 star review except the chicken main course was rather ordinary. The amuse bouche, starters ( trio of seafood and savoury pancake) and the desserts (lemon tart and dessert medley) were all excellent.

Would have been nice to have had proper butter (and on the table rather than have to ask for it) and cream (or choice) with the coffee.
Otherwise it was excellent!

Service was very good
Disappointed with the Leek and potato soup we would have preferred the potato’s in the soup individual not all mixed together
Were unable to taste the leeks just puréed potatoes
and the banana cheesecake didn’t taste very nice. It had a very strange taste
The main meal was delicious
Very warm and enjoyable

You get a really warm welcome and a good choice of menu. A very relaxed area to enjoy an aperitif and chose your meal. The dining area has a very pleasant ambiance which combined with a final bill that does not break the bank offers a very good dining experience.
The only difficulty that can arise is the limited parking although on this visit we able to move our vehicle into a properly designated space within a few minutes of our arrival.

Took my 92 yrs old mother and she thoroughly enjoyed the food. Wasn’t noisy but also wasn’t full. Probably could get noisy but staff very happy to move us mid meal if we had a problem.
We will certainly return.
