Food very nice and innovative with knowledgable attentive staff but interior ambience and location lacking. Perhaps £150 per head for 6 course taster meal with paired drinks at lunch time is excessive. Optional service is not optional unless you ask for it to be taken off the bill.
Highly recommend. Unlike any other restaurant, great experience, staff really friendly. Excellent all round. Well worth a visit.
The ambience, food, and service at Carters was outstanding. Having dined at a number of michelin starred restaurants, we were particularly impressed with the staff who managed to be simultaneously incredibly inefficient and knowledgeable, and yet relaxed.
It is really is an experience at Carters, and they've thought of everything; there are loads little small touches throughout the menu that impress you, make you think in equal measure.
I had a thoroughly enjoyable time.
The quality you would expect for this award winning restaurant. Excellent food and service, very good for something really different.
A lovely meal. The treats at the end were great - that was the best dark chocolate I've ever had!
Went for my wife’s birthday. From the welcome to the goodbye everything was just prefect. The food, service and staff knowledge was outstanding.
Exceptional food, service and ambience.
Overall experience was well worth the cost with the drinks flight including sake and beer a real treat.
A fabulous lunch, including a cheese course not to miss!
WOW, WOW, WOW - What a wonderful experience. Celebrating my brother in laws 50th in style. From the moment we stepped into the restaurant to the moment we left it was just wonderful.
ALL the staff excellent, personal, knowledgeable, friendly - the food NO WORDS!!!!! - you cannot call this a meal, its a real food experience from start to finish. With every course a theatrical act of its own.
it was especially appreciated by our men who are budding chefs themselves and any good food always appreciated by my sister and myself.
Every member of staff had contact with us (the chef & kitchen staff didn't have much say as I had to go to the kitchen to thank them all!!!!!). A real family and team work at its very best. We all felt like we were the only ones there, a lovely relaxed ambience - we didn't want it to end.
In a way it didn't as we were talking it about it all the next day, reliving each course and wishing we were back there.
Cannot recommend this enough - Well done Brad & Holly and thank you so very much

Superb food brilliant service can’t wait to go again
Fantastic 8 course taster meal; could not have been better. The service is supurb.
Booked lunch at this Michelin star restaurant courtesy of a £150 birthday gift voucher from my kids. Lynda went for the four course option and I opted for six courses with accompanying wines. Both options were preceded by four 'amuse bouches'. I also ordered a glass of Manzanilla to cleanse my palate between courses (washed down with tap water), and a bottle of Rose, mainly for Lynda. The bill came to £230 including a 12.5% gratuity for the staff, which was richly deserved.
In fact it is the staffing, particularly the sommelier that makes this restaurant a 'theatrical experience' rather than a fine meal......and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Don't go because you are hungry for fine food, although it is indeed very fine, because the portions are very small indeed, but do go for the experience. Every course is delivered by one of the chefs who explains the origin of the ingredients and the cooking techniques used to prepare them........and do enhance your experience by ordering the accompanying wine package........the sommelier is very entertaining indeed.
The prices are eye-watering, but I'm not complaining..........my whole afternoon was brilliant fun. Having said that, it's a bit like a Royal Garden Party .......... a fabulous 'one off' experience to be recommended........but probably not repeated.
Second visit, this time to celebrate my husbands birthday.
Outstanding food with lots of use of local ingredients. Staff really knowledgeable, friendly but not too intrusive . Wish restaurant was a little nearer to our home, so we could get taxi and explore wine menu more thoroughly. Still great for a treat or special occasion.
Amazing food, amazing service. Really impressed with FOH staff’s food/wine knowledge. A fantastic experience. Thank you!
Near perfect birthday lunch for my wife at this relaxed and informal Michelin-starred restaurant. Wonderful food (chicken liver cereal snack, the bread and ‘pig fat’ and Maida Vale cheese on malt loaf, with ale, were sensational highlights) and, great organic / ‘natural’ wine pairings. Couple that with, as always, great service and you can’t fail to have a superb time!
Appreciated that staff rang before we arrived to check about any dietary preferences.
We went to celebrate my fiancee’s birthday, she was amazed by the whole experience. As soon as you walk through the door you feel welcome and very comfortable. All the staff are extremely knowledgeable about the food they serve. The chef’s creativity is unbelievable as the dishes bring together wonderful ingredients that most people would never contemplate. The front of house staff performed their duties in a very personable manner and their interaction with customers and other staff impressed us immensely.
The sommelier had an extensive knowledge of the wines on offer which made the pairing a very pleasurable experience. I was impressed when asked prior to our visit if there were any dietary needs for us, this doesn’t happen often enough.
This was my second visit and my fiancées first, we will definitely repeat it.
Well done to all at Carters.
Excellent friendly waitress to welcome you
Visited for lunch several times and have never been disappointed. Favourite destination in Birmingham.
Wonderful dining experience. Enjoyed all the creative courses. Very personal service. It was lovely to be told about each course & where the food was sourced.
This was a special birthday treat. We were very relieved to find that it was a layed back & relaxed dress code. Good for a lunch as light meals suit us. Great flavours & attention to detail which added to a wonderful experience.
Our first visit to Carters and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We loved the emphasis on organic and local produce. We were challenged to try new things... and really enjoyed them. The staff were friendly, welcoming and very knowledgeable and helpful. All in all a really special way to celebrate our special occasion!
The most wonderful dining experience I've ever had! It was my first time eating in a Michelin star restaurant and I had booked Carter's for a special occasion - my boyfriend's birthday. The food was exceptional, service was great and drinks were so brilliantly paired with the food, we were dreaming of our meal for days afterwards.
The team made us feel extra special bringing us a birthday treat at the end of the meal too!
Service was impeccable, waiters were knowledgeable and helpful. We had the 6 course tasting menu. I had the vegetarian and some dishes were divine like the white asparagus, asparagus with berkswell cheese broth. My biggest criticism was the vegetarian main, which was delicious but extremely minuscule a couple of cauliflower florets whilst the meat dish was a duck leg and breast. To be honest I felt shortchanged the waitress did explain the complexity of my dish but it was the portion size that disappointed.
It is one of the best meal I had in a long time. Everything is good,fresh,local. Staff is great and very helpful. Ambiance is nice. Overall. Go to carter. You won't be disappointed. They even call you before to make sure you don't have allergies. If so. They would accomodate. What's more to say?
This restaurant was outstanding in every department and I cannot wait to go back!
I would like to thank the whole team for an amazing evening for my partner Elaines birthday at your excellent restaurant.
The food, the enthusiasm of the team and the whole experience was outstanding.
We have eaten at some top restaurants, but this beats them all. Relaxed, unpretentious, educational, inspirational and fun.
Really enjoyed the whole experience . Service excellent and food presented appetisingly.
We visited Carter's of Moseley to celebrate our wedding day. We chose the 4 course with the wine pairing and were not disappointed. Each course was creative and delicious. The staff were attentive but not intrusive. At the end of the meal, they served us individual bars of homemade chocolate and a lovely chocolate piped congratulations message on a plate. They treated us to a glass of fizz before we left. The whole evening lasted 4 hours and we enjoyed every minute.
Wonderful meal, superbly cooked. Great service. Look forward to returning.
Staff were all committed to the ethos of the sourcing of the ingredients. They were enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We felt the continual filling of glasses and asking if we wanted any more drinks was a bit pushy. Amongst the taster menu there were many delights and interesting combinations but nothing that’s made us go wow. Very small portions apart from the duck. Glad to have gone there to see what it was like. Gave us nice extra chocolates with happy anniversary piped onto plate
I wanted to choose a restaurant that was a little bit different and more of an experience than just a meal out, Carter’s of Mosley was excellent in every way! Very welcoming and the food was top notch! I would recommend this restaurant to anybody, I will be back for sure.
Our first time at a Michelin star restaurant.
It was everything and more of what I expected absolutely fantastic.
Perfect setting, great staff, welcoming from the beginning and very informative throughout the taster menu and wine flight.
Food was fantastic and every course cooked to perfection! Great evening
Great food. Really enjoyable Michelin started restaurant enhanced by the use of plates rather than gimmicks to eat off.
From the beginning to the end of the meal the service and attention to detail was excellent. The food was excellent tasting and very creative. Favourite dishes included the cod and leek also the pancake and truffle. The atmosphere of the restaurant was relaxed and had very comfortable seating. You could also view into the kitchen which was very exciting. Would recommend this restaurant for a special occasion where you taste local food in a way never experienced before.
Food was exceptional, service was warm, friendly and informative
From the moment we approached the restaurant the service was unbelievable. The door was opened for us on our arrival and we received a very warm welcome from all the staff. Customer service was perfect, friendly, informative, attentive but not intrusive. Food was divine and enhanced by the view of the kitchen. Every course was delicious and I really couldn't choose a favourite. Thank you to everyone for a fabulous evening.
All expectations exceeded. Delicious food with unparalleled attention to detail. Served by knowledgeable and attentive staff in a lovely relaxed environment. Definitely an experience to remember and will definitely be repeated.
