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

Great food and staff very attentive. Although we were probably the noisiest table we were not rushed or frowned upon. Had a great time. ThebfirstbXmss Work party where we could hear ourselves speak!

Not at the level it used to be - disappointing.
Serving lad could not ensured what we order was the right meal,
Fish definitely overcooked.
Prices would have been OK if the food and service would have remained like it used up to recent years....but current price vs current service and food is a poor ratio.

We went for dinner on a Monday night and it was quiet, which is not surprising. My wife and I both had selections from the prix fixe menu simply because the selections were just right for us. The pork yuk sung, which we both had, was gorgeous, beautifully seasoned and very tasty. For mains we had chicken wrapped in pancetta with a delicious jus and venison which was beautifully tender and perfectly cooked. We also had desserts which were delightful. For wine we had a bottle of Chenin Blanc (Roos) which was also tremendous, one of the best CB's I've ever tatsed!! A delicious and delightful Monday night out and all for £60! Thank you Beeches, see you soon!

Shaun sat us at our table immediately on arrival, as there was an impromptu gathering in the bar area. All the staff were attentive, but not intrusive. The food was excellent. We shared brie and bread to start, followed by some having individual starters, then main courses. I had calamari then pork tenderloin and was impressed by both. Merlot to accompany was very good. Thanks to Morgan, Shaun and the other staff members.

We had a super meal on Saturday evening. One of our number required gluten free food the wine was good value and very tasty. The only downside was that there was a large table of diners near to us who were celebrating a birthday very noisily.

We had the prix fixe lunch menu and found it good value. Only 3 choices per course but fortunately we all found something we liked. Portion sizes were adequate for lunchtime but those with hearty appetitites might be a bit disappointed! Service was friendly and efficient.
Views over countryside from the restaurant are very nice and there is a patio and garden which would be great in the summer.
Only slight criticism is that the restaurant was cold, the radiator by our table was only lukewarm when we arrived and stone cold soon afterwards.

6 people. Brilliant starters. Main course was luke warm and verging on cold for part of it. Other parts of it were lovely and tasty. Very mixed feelings about the event as it is a lovely place with excellent staff and ambience. Just very disappointing food overall. Will try it again but with some hesitation............

We visited with friends on Friday evening and I was a little apprehensive after reading some reviews (after booking) that the service at the Beeches may have deteriorated since my previous visits. I needn’t have worried - we all had a wonderful evening with fabulous food and great service from all of the staff.

It was a hot day and we needed the blind pulling down behind us. However, the strings were knotted up at the top, so the blind wouldn’t come fully down. Air conditioning would have been nice! The next day one of my guests told me that his medium rib eye steak was too rare. He didn’t want to complain because he didn’t want to spoil the occasion. Overall, the service was good. Some meals were a bit on the small side. The menu is suitable for special occasions and you can expect to find something different. Not cheap though.
