We came to the terrace for afternoon tea. Luckily the weather was lovely as we sat outside. The staff were all very polite and attentive, the service was really good and fast as well. Will definitely like to return in the future.

This is a beautiful setting with lots of potential. I would be happy to return once the full menu is back up and running and I was a little disappointed that this wasn’t mentioned as I had checked the menu online and I was impressed at the extensive range but then the menu on the day was scaled back. The drinks were good and the food was tasty but it took a long time in coming out (almost an hour) and when it did come we had japelenos on the nachos which we had specifically asked to be removed. The sitting was for an hour and a half only and we had a booking afterwards for drinks at another place so there was not enough time it try dessert. After mentioning this issue with the food we were given a great discount. I am hoping the full menu will return soon and once the restaurant has had a full month to get back into it I’m sure the service will be great.

I booked CP (afternoon tea) with my daughters. I arrived at the Crowne Plaza and was looked at distastefully. We were seated and staff brought everything out separately so it took a while.Before,I had even bit into a tiny,crustless sandwich,the waitress threw the bill on the table and literally 2 minutes later brought a card machine out. I asked why she had singled out my table when everyone else had paid for their bill after the meal.I observed 2 tables ask for the bill when their meal had evidently ended and had to wait for the bill and then again to pay. I asked the waitress why we had to pay before the meal,she replied ‘it’s new policy’ I stated ‘oh sorry do we not fit your usual clientele’ I truly believe it was because I have black Caribbean daughters who were dressed very casually.

I asked at the desk for a complaint form and was told ‘you can talk to me’ I told her about the discrimination experienced,she refused to give me a complaint form or any details of their complaint procedure.I experience which felt very pretty woman esque ,you know the one scene I’m talking about? Where the sales assistants refuse to serve Vivian due to appearance.

The woman at the desk said they’d requested payment because of covid! I said I wasn’t happy.The staff said it was nothing to do with race and attempted to support this by pointing at “Gary” As if they challenged my complaint because of “Gary” a token black person for the hotel.

I spoke to Gary who said it was policy to ask for payment before a meal.I asked if that was the case why had no one else been asked prior to the meal and he agreed they hadn’t and it was a mistake.I asked a remaining table if they’d paid as they were there long before I got there and had alcohol.I witnessed the other tables ask for payment after meals.Gary said he’d look at my bill as if I was complaining to get 50p knocked off the bill. Gary was reluctant to give me the information but eventually did.

Service was excellent - the team were very friendly and attentive.
The location (we sat outside) was excellent - probably one of the best in Solihull.

We like to dine here from time to time as we had our wedding and reception at Crowne Plaza in 2017 which was amazing. However, it was a very quiet atmosphere for a Friday evening, with only another couple or two in there at the same time. The service, however, was exceptional as was the high quality of the food served.

Whilst the menu is more limited than our last visit, that is totally understandable in these challenging times. However, there was still a good choice. We felt safe, could hear each other, and had a lovely evening.

This restaurant doubles for breakfast and is more suited for this.
Excellent service by charming staff.
limited menu which is pricey in keeping with 4* hotels.
