It was really nice to celebrate our first day back in eating out after long time - I know that Highfield has got a high standard of Covid safety measure - it was our natural choice. Outdoor seating was well covered and heated - they had extra blanket and hotwater bottle which I found really practical and cozy. Food was brilliant as usual. Wonderful service by great staff. We felt we were well looked after. Thank you

Visited for lunch - people are always friendly here but the service overall was slow. The quality of the food was below the usual standard. We decided against complaining as it was difficult to attract attention and didn't want to wait ages for things to be sorted out. It was busy but not the extent that staff were rushing around to cope.

Thanks for your review Peter- we value all guest feedback, good or bad. We pride ourselves on great service, and food, so it's never good to hear when we've slipped. We will pick up your comments with the team. Obviously being guest-focussed is so important every service and I can only apologise that the service was slow and the food was below the usual standard.

Service was brilliant. Nothing to fault at all. However, Sunday lunch was ‘meh’ The pork crackling was so hard you’d lose a tooth if you bit into it. you couldn’t even cut it with your cutlery. Hardly any gravy, and most of the food came out cold. Puddings were lovely.

Sorry to say but don’t be returning.

Dining with wife and three kids under 12 so booked 4pm on Sat to avoid rush. Not particularly busy, staff very attentive to begin. Ordered from main menu, quite surprised at the 1hr wait to get mains delivered, esp given time, my mash in the pie n mash dish was stone cold so had to be sent back, by the time this came back most my party already finished. Kids meals were fine and wife’s cod/lentil dish was outstanding.
Was also sat by back door which was a bit draughty.
Small gripes on an otherwise decent experience in a lovely pub.

We had a table booked in the restaurant, but the air con was so cold, I asked if we could eat outside as the weather was warm. We were refused a table as their Covid policy didn’t offer table service to diners outside. We would have to go on the website to obtain a QR code to order food for outside. Just sounds too complicated and jobs worth to me, just to eat a meal. Our waitress was very helpful, she knew the score. I must admit, 6 people total eating in the restaurant, doesn’t give the place much ambiance!!

The High Field
Responded on 18 September 2020

We are sorry you were disappointed. Whilst we do have outside tables available for these we do encourage guests to order via our new mobile app and have so far had great feedback from this. Often guests prefer this to minimise the contact between other people. We are working hard to ensure everyone feels safe, well looked after and enjoys the atmosphere when they visit us. We are pleased that your waitress was helpful and do hope you will give us another chance and we can see you again soon.

We had a booth which was great really private
The food was mediocre -chicken and chips for £14 with a bit of garlic on!
I’m not one to scrimp on food but it was so bland Nando’s with have been tastier
We also ordered the sea bass =lots of soy sauce and edamame beans, not the most imaginative.
The side dish of veg was literally just cabbage.
The prices aren’t reflected of the food -just the venue.

The imagination seems to have gone out of the food this place used to be one of our favourites.
We want dishes that we can’t easily make, seasoning and plates that are full of curiosity!
It’s a lovely restaurant ~but we are all about the food!
The guy who served us was great.
We did request the window was closed as we spent half of the meal trying to get someone’s attention as we were freezing.

Because I like the food & service at Highfield I decided to go back again - I have been there for breakfast lunch dinner before - food is consistently great - but it is such a popular place for lunch and dinner & parking might be difficult sometimes so I went back for breakfast. they have got a wonderful selection of breakfast menu and use best quality ingredients. everything is cooked for perfection- chefs at highfield are skilled and talented. They also thrive at the good standard of service - whoever the serving food drinks etc they are all friendly and polite. I like the place that is full of positive energy and full of life :-) I also like the idea that it is not in the busy city centre - just outside of Fiveways - posh and beautiful side of Edgbaston. Covid procedure is well maintained and I felt really safe eating there - since increase of covid case in Birmingham I was feeling uncomfortable eating in the city centre so Highfield is the Perfect option. Simply great place to eat

I went there for breakfast - highfield is one of the very few places that offers nice breakfast in relaxing atmosphere - seating areas are a lot bigger than you imagine from outside. Beautiful garden seats - parking space is restricted but you can still find place to park as far as you dont mind a short walking. Good selection of breakfast menu - coffee and tea are not over priced for what you are getting - I think they are very ethical in what they do. Overall experience was wonderful - I have been to highfield few times before - quality of food and service are good and is consistent. They kept tables well apart and placed relevant Covid safety measures so I felt very safe dining there. Really nice place to eat and relax - I definitely go back again. Great to place to have breakfast lunch dinner quick tea/coffee or drink - perfect all rounder.

Pub has 3 sitting options: indoors, small terrace facing the road and a big quiet garden. We had an opportunity to sit in the garden. Menu differs between indoors/terrace and garden. In the garden we had to order via the app due to covid restrictions. Drinks were good (we had mojito mocktail), food selection was smaller but still nice. Additionally we asked for the dessert and staff couldn't be more helpful to accommodate our request. Overall, will recommend and come back here again.
