I would recommend but I would also tell them that I believe it’s expensive for what you get. Had better Michelin star meals, this would not make my top 5.

Service was excellent and the range of the set menu was wide and nicely balanced. The variety of wines was outstanding and the knowledge of the sommelier greatly aided wine choice.

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcomed & relaxed.
The food is so amazing. We’ve been lucky enough to eat at 4 different Michelin starred restaurants now, Carter’s of Moseley has definitely been the best so far!

I have never been to a michelin star restaurant and so have never had a taster menu.
Went for the 4 course which had 4 small starters with bread and then 3 courses and a desert. Most of the courses was small portions but was more than enough as there were quite a few courses. All the food was delicious.
The staff both the front and kitchen were all very friendly. Each course was explained - about the preparation and where the ingredients came from.
We had a visit to the kitchen and thanked all the staff for the lovely meal. I would highly recommend this place for the food and the staff.
Well deserved michelin star.

Tuesday evening and about half full but a very good experience. Food was innovative and delicious (a couple of combinations not to my liking but that is expected). For a 6 course menu the food just kept on coming. Service was just about right - welcomed personally - recognised my wife's birthday with some nice personal touches - friendly but professional. Shame about the idiot customer but handled well by the staff recognised on the bill.

Carters just keeps getting better and better! This was my third visit but my friend's first visit. The food was varied, tasty and often stunningly presented. Some dishes were surprising (e.g. cooked oyster in beef broth; the Midlands crayfish!), and all were delightful. Drinks matched the standard of the food. We especially enjoyed Carters' own brand of gin and home-made tonic. We were very pleased with the wines selected for us (we didn't take the pairings but did taste several different wines). I finished with a fantastic Kenyan coffee which was accompanied by a homemade ganache. As always, staff were friendly and welcoming and the atmosphere was unpretentious. The ethos/ focus on local, sustainable ingredients is evident throughout the menu. It's no surprise that Carters keeps winning awards left and right!

One of the best meals I’ve ever eaten. Some of the best produce available but also items you would not normal buy or even think of putting together helps creates a stunning menu. Perfectly paired with a brilliant range of wines, sake and cider.

This is then made even better by a well executed service. First class with a personal touch so often missing in fine dining restaurants. This is one restaurant I can’t wait to come back to.

This is not our first time at Carters, but it is great to see that their original high standards have been maintained. We would even say, 'improved' if that was at all possible. Their passion for sourcing and using the best locally produced raw materials is evident in their menu and the food and the drink to accompany it was amazing. The staff were attentive but not overbearing with attention to detail very much the order of the day. We have no hesitation to recommend this gem of a restaurant. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

My wife and I had the taster menu on Saturday night. The occasion was our wedding anniversary. We have dined at Carters previously and were, as usual, delighted with the food, the paired wine flight, the service and the friendly staff. The explanation of each course and the attendant wine adds to the enjoyment of the evening. I particularly liked the Duck breast, having a plate of meat provided a contrast to the other taster portions. We will be dining here again.

My experience at Carters of Moseley made my weekend. The restaurant is in a lovely and quiet area of Birmingham, called Moseley. I loved everything, from the food, to the service, to the loos! I had duck, the quality of the meat was outstanding. Also, the oyster cooked in beef fat, OMG!!!! Alex, knew a lot about cocktails and wines and took the time to educate us about everything. At the end of the meal he even printed a list of all restaurants in the area that he would recommend. This is what I call going the extra mile. You never get that in London restaurants, no matter how high end. The experience was lovely, it was my first tasting menu ever and it sets the bar really high. If you go to the loo, you need to use the hand balm....it smells amazing!

Simply outstanding! Second visit for us and this was even better than the last. Flawless friendly service coupled with inventive & utterly delicious food.
To top it off the knowledge and passion of wine particularly organic/biodynamic is exceptional.
Overall zero pretence, maximum enjoyment! You made us feel like old friends popping round for dinner, can’t ask for anything better than that.

We've dropped in once (or twice) season for some time and are impressed more with every visit. The staff provide a faultless execution of a sublime dining experience, whilst interacting in a friendly & sociable manner.
We've never found a fault with any course, wine or evening - looking forward to reading the new book too :)

Dont get me wrong, the experience was great fun; brilliant staff and lovely wine, however the food was poor inthought. I asked for a pescatarian menu, whichnqas my choice but the food was nowhere near as good or of as much value as for the meat eater. One dish was a little plant plot with a handful of herbs and whilst my friend had a big piece of beautifully cooked duck wing I had half a potato cake! A shame really

With extremely friendly and knowledgable staff, this is a lovely informal restaurant with an intimate atmosphere. The food is sublime and varied with interesting and surprising takes on British classics. Amazing oyster and scallops, charcuterie, duck in fact so many amazing courses they can’t really be described here. It’s not cheap but given the quality and variety of courses I think it’s very good value.

Amazing chilled out vibe for a Michelin star restaurant. There's music playing quietly in the background but there's a lovely hubbub of chat and excitement from all around the restaurant.
The food is unbelievable with an insane amount of attention to detail paid.
The staff are all attentive without being over-bearing and all clearly have a genuine passion for what they do.
Carter's is exactly what we were hoping for from a Michelin star restaurant - incredible food and service without the pomp and pretentiousness.
Would recommend 100%!

The wine list is barely readable with small faint print in the half light of the restaurant.
It is an evening with a real difference so congratulations on that score.
We thought the fish courses all excellent with some of the meat less so.
Service is friendly and efficient- well done!

Our experience at Carter's was out of this world. The food was amazing and way above our expectations. We went for the 6 course with wine pairing and everything about it was perfect. Staff were extremely attentive and the pace we were served our food and wine was spot on. This was a treat for us as the experience was expensive yet worth every penny. We honestly haven't tasted wine or food like it. Thank you to all staff at Carter's for such a wonderful night we had at your restaurant this week. We have been telling everyone about it!

An amazing experience for our first taste of fine dining. The food was not only exceptional but the atmosphere was perfect for our romantic evening out. We really didn't notice the three and half hours spent there eating out of this world, new and exciting foods. The service was brilliant and everyone was friendly, professional, knowledgeable about all the foods and wine served. We have read and heard lots about this place and hype is definitely worth the attention. Thank you for a memorable experience.

Overall the experience was top notch.

Everyone who served us was very knowledgable about the food and the general ethos of the restaurant which was lovely. Furthermore, rather than the suffocating atmosphere you sometimes encounter with these upmarket restaurants Carters was very welcoming and casual which made for a very pleasant experience.

Our party of 6 was very well catered for and we opted for the 6 course tasting menu.

The speed of the first few courses was frantic but slowed down towards the end which I was grateful for. I suspect this was by design as you are always ready to try new things at the start but want to prolong the experience as you go through it.

The bits which could be improved on:

The menu that we had included too much cheese - strong cheese that permeated throughout the dishes. So much so that some of our party was put off by it and hence didn't enjoy multiple courses.

The meat/main course was a bit small - we had the optional upgrade to Wagyu for an extra sum - it didn't seem worth it and we felt a bit cheated.

Lastly, it might be worth thinking of more vegetarian substitutes/options.

Nevertheless, highly enjoyable and we will definitely go again when they change their menu!
