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

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.

Food we ordered was delicious and good portion sizes, however I was unable to finish my main course after my starter because I became quite full. The staff were friendly and service was good. My only criticism is there was a birthday celebration in the bar which at times was quite loud.

Valentines evening dinner.

The food and the service was excellent. Just the high level of lighting turned the occasion from being a spectacular evening into a nice evening.
Will definitely base my booking on whether I can be seated in the Conservatory or not, next time

On the whole the meal was good. I was a bit disappointed that there was only a set menu available. Also we had a drink in the bar before moving to our table. There was an awful smell in the bar area. Not sure if it was because it is situated near the toilets? Having said this the food was good as was the service.

Having spent approximately £230 for four people drinks , shared starters and four mains I think it was money we could have spent in nicer surroundings. It all seemed a bit bland and nothing special. I nearly fell over between the bar and my table as it was very slippy on the wooden floor ... I had to tell a waitress to make sure it was dried up before someone got hurt . Additionally there were a few fruit like flies around our table which put me off a little and made us retire into one the round booths at the end of night . I did mention to a waitress but she wasn’t really interested so I gave up
