Gastro Pub
The Beeches as made its home in an attractive Georgian gastropub in the beautiful village of Hampton-in-Arden in Solihull, near Knowle, the NEC, and Birmingham Airport. It's a fantastic place to get away any time of year but during the summer months The Beeches restaurant and surrounding village really comes to life. Our sunny decking is a perfect place to enjoy a relaxing pint of one of our Cask ales, served straight from the barrel, or a glass of wine from our extensive, handpicked wine list. The Beeches menu is inspired by the international experiences of our head chef and kitchen staff that’s unpretentious and relaxed enough for a lazy lunch, somewhere special to dine with friends or business colleagues, or to hold that exclusive party at a posh pub with exquisite restaurant food in the Solihull area. So, if you're after somewhere to eat and drink and looking to visit one of the most recommend restaurants in Solihull and one of the favourite places to eat near the NEC Birmin

The room and view were lovely. The food was to die for and the service was quick and excellent. Would definitely recommend and was a great place to spend our 10 year anniversary! Thank you

A fabulous welcome and walking through to the restaurant we were all struck by the lovely views over the countryside. The food, Salmon, beef burger and pork we all freshly prepared, well presented and most importantly all extremely tasty! The same with the deserts, top presentation and full of flavour. The staff were all very friendly and service was spot on.
We had our coffees out on the sunny terrace to make the most of those views. Never heard of the village let alone our restaurant, so glad we found it. We all had a very enjoyable lunchtime at The Beeches.

The lady that served us was a little abrupt & didn't appear to be all that friendly. She also passed food across the table over people when there was room to be able to serve this direct to the person. I was also handed a really hot plate, which she only informed me was hot once I'd been given it & it was too late then. Her response was 'I'm used to it now!' Then they overcharged us by around £50 which we had to sort too. I was a little disappointed as we haven't experienced issues like this before.

Lovely setting and lovely food. Service was wonderful. Noise level quite high on a Friday night and if we had known about a back room, we would have requested it.

Always a good meal with friendly attentive staff. The restaurant has a lovely view with great outside sitting if it's warm enough! The bar is with a visit just for a drink and has some great seating including booths and settees and bar seats. Call in, you won't be disappointed

The dining room was so noisy/loud that it was a challenge to follow the conversation we and our guest were trying to have. It was a Friday evening, so not surprising that it was busy, but we wish we'd been asked whether we preferred a quieter outdoor location (it was a lovely evening and we would have happily dined al fresco). We weren't given that option. This said, we did see folks at picnic tables outdoors having drinks, but initially weren't aware that meals were served there as well. The food was good and the price/value ratio equally so. It's in a nice quiet village not far from NEC but in some ways a world away. If it hadn't been so loud we'd have given it a better rating.

Food was excellent however disappointed that a lime and soda was £1.20 which seems excessive for a soft drink.

We visited today for Sunday Lunch as it was my mother in laws birthday celebration. We were seated in a quiet area as requested, although the restaurant wasn’t busy so we could have been in a better position.
The drinks order was taken and then the meals. The food was very good and tasty.
The service improved after the main course.
I went to pay the bill and one third was drinks even though we only had 2 gin and tonics and 1 lager. We were charged for an extra gin which I queried and was removed from the bill, but the tonic was £3 which seems steep and there was an ‘open drink’ charge of £2.50 which I still do not know what for.
The £26 drinks bill put a slight damper on the afternoon as it was unacceptably high. This would make us think twice about returning which is sad when the food was so good.

This was my first visit to The Beeches. I had been recommended by a friend and was delighted with the food and service. It was a lovely afternoon and my friends and I rounded off our get-together sitting in the gardens enjoying the lovely Warwickshire countryside. A very enjoyable experience.

The food was lovely and the wine reasonably priced. We arrived 45 mins early which meant service on arrival was good.
We guessed that the restaurant was (perhaps unexpectedly) short staffed. The delay in taking orders for dessert and coffee was spectacular. It looked two very new members of the team were running around doing their best but the wheels were well and truly off by the end of our meal. Shame because we have been there several times and this is the first disappointing evening.

Not as good as when we have been previously - the menu felt quite limited and the bar area was really rowdy, with very small children there still at 10pm which felt quite inappropriate. This is somewhere we have previously come for a special meal and haven’t minded paying higher prices because the menu was varied with excellent quality food. It just doesn’t feel worth the high prices anymore and it’s a shame because the setting is really lovely.

Cannot fault the food and service but the seating area and entrance need sweeping and tidying up. As you walk into the entrance porch the door to staff only, wide open and looks at mess. The outside area to the garden needs a good clean with cigarette ends everywhere and in need of a paint. It is the attention to detail that will help improve the overall experience

Despite problems with staff shortage and stubborn ovens, the team turned to and gave us a lovely meal and atmosphere, apologising and explaining the delays in service. This was our second visit and the food was excellent again. We will certainly go again and wholeheartedly recommend it to others.

Pleasantly surprised, drove past and never realised it was there. Busy busy Sunday lunchtime. Really quick from order to food on the table. Ordered two roast beef which was well presented and hot. Never enough vegatbles served and always seen as dressing on the plate rather than a substantive part of the meal. Price for two with drinks was £74 which was ok

Sunday evening dinner was very enjoyable with a good menu a varied menu on offer.

Three courses for £25 per person was excellent value.

Good atmosphere with attentive staff who were happy to assist.

Look forward to enjoying a la carte menu
