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.

My husband and I have never had a bad meal at Haigs. We drive out of the way to visit and always have a lovely evening. Food is impeccable and the staff are very polite and helpful. Highly recommend.

A Christmas festive menu well cooked, nicely served and attentive service. Restaurant full and a healthy buzz of conversation. Crackers and a complimentary entrée were a nice touch. An enjoyable lunchtime.

First visit to restaurant, really nice, we sat in the conservatory, and that was fine. Did think the place was a bit overcrowded, had to ask a gentleman to move his chair to let me get past, on my way out, which meant he had to stand up to let me past, BUT thought it was probably because it was near Christmas.
The staff were lovely, we were served by a couple of young men, who were great, friendly and very obliging
Will definitely be back
Thank you

We go to McKees a lot, usually with friends and we have never been disappointed. Food is always very good, and well presented, lots of choice and the drinks are reasonably priced. Excellent value for money, cannot fault it. Recommended.

We have dined at McKee's many times and all our previous reviews have marked the food better than 'Good'. However, on this occasion the lamb main course, which we and our two guests all had, was disappointing. The lamb was bland and not up to the usual standard.

We attended a Halloween themed evening. A good effort was made to create a ghoulish evening with decorations and spooky menu. The food (beef broth and ribs) were average. The service was pleasant and average. Probably wouldn't rush back.

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.

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.
