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.

No one on reception, just a chalk board with an arrow,
All staff very young , however extremely pleasant and professional , food was lovely and well worth the set menu price , the reason for low star is decor .I last visited in 2000 and the brasserie is in very much need for a refit

The food generally was up to it's usual high standard. The only disappointment was the bread and dips provided at the start of the meal. One plate to be shared amongst 6 people is firstly a practical challenge and secondly a concern in these Covid times. We all agreed that we would prefer to have bread and butter rather than the dips.
The service was excellent - William took some rather unusual requests from one of our number in his stride and did a great job.

A brilliant evening, service was excellent. Staff were friendly and efficient. We were treated to a complimentary bowl of tomato soup, small but very nice. Our order of a hot meal came on hot plates, in my view a must. Social distancing and mask use was adhered to by all that were there. On each table was sanitising hand gel. The restaurant was clean and tidy. Could not fault our evening.

We have been going to to Mckees brasserie for at least 10 years plus and on each occasion during different times of the year we have found that the variety of food created is exceptional. Great value and served with a genuine smile.

The meal was excellent, service very good: one minor criticism, the ginger sponge could have had more ginger in it for our taste but it was a beautifully light sponge.
The precautions taken because of Covid were good, although the serving staff did not wear masks.

Not been to Mckees in years but booked and went using the Eat out to Help out scheme in Aug 2020.
Great food... traditional English menu. We will definitely be back and happy to pay full price as felt it would be worth every penny.

Food and drink very good, and excellent value for money even without Eat out to Help Out. Only two minor criticisms - an over-loud waiter, and staff getting too close without face coverings.

Excellent choice for lunch with a good menu and quality food. The bill was only £13 per head thanks to the Chancellor! A lovely lunch and an enjoyable experience.
