At ‘Toffs by Rob Palmer’ the food is ‘Modern British’ which uses a blend of modern and classic cooking techniques and flavours. Whilst working at Hampton Manor Rob had the privilege of being able to use the estates walled kitchen garden which produced an abundance of produce all year round. He developed his style around the seasons of the garden and the estate whilst also taking inspiration from multi culture Britain and also using flavours and seasonings from around the world whilst always making sure the core of each dish remains British. The food at ‘Toffs by Rob Palmer’ will continue this ethos and serve a 4 to 5 course menu at lunch time and a 7 to 8 course menu at dinner.

    We went for a meal to celebrate my wife's retirement and were the only people in the restaurant on a Thursday lunchtime, which was a shame as the food was excellent. The restaurant has only been open 4 months so hopefully will become busier as word gets out. The service was brilliant and the dishes were explained as they were served which only served to heighten our enjoyment. Rob Palmer himself came over at the end of our meal for a brief chat and ti ensure we'd enjoyed our food.

    Interesting to look in on the kitchen. Ben looked after us really well. Enjoyed the wine flight and the knowledgable sommelier (don't know his name). Excellent dishes prepared with wonderful attention to detail. Loved the monkfish. The sauces were brilliant - could do with some starch to mop them up with. As it is so intimate, it would be nice if the staff introduced themselves. Will be back.

    We had the 7 course tasting menu, and we thoroughly enjoyed every course. The chocolate dessert was the best I’d ever tasted. The service was excellent, even a chat from the chef afterwards. Good wine recommendations that went really well with the food. It was a Tuesday evening, and even though the restaurant was quiet, the atmosphere was enjoyable. If I had to be really picky, it was a bit on the chilly side, but I am always cold! Overall, it was amazing. We will definitely return, and I’ve already recommended to friends. I’m sure next time we visit it’ll be packed, it deserves to be!

    We had a wonderful evening at Toffs. Dinner for 2 of us for my best friends birthday sat at the Chef's bench. Its a small team and they work really well together - you could see that they communicate well which makes for great service and atmosphere. We had a fine dining experience but it felt warm, relaxed and genuine. Chef Rob is creating dishes that he cares about, and this shows with each plate we were served. Cant wait to go back - thank you to everyone at Toffs.

    Small quirky portions, each beautifully presented with sauces or dressings to die for. The service is excellent and informative. Venue is minimalistic and you are able to see some dishes being constructed at the bar area. Would definitely recommend Toffs.

    The service was faultless from the moment we entered until we left. We went for my husband's birthday and it was a definite treat. The wine pairing was well worth it and the white port that was paired with the cheese course was just stunning. The waiter deserves a message for his personal and attentive service and knowledge of the wines. Rob came and talked to us at the end which just added to the personal touch. My husband actually said he liked the cabbage which was high praise indeed.

    The quality of the food and wine pairing was outstanding. The different wines complemented the dishes beautifully. Also I was very impressed with the portion sizes for a fine dining restaurant. Some restaurants we have been to are literally just a mouthful !! We will definitely return very soon . Well done to Rob and his team !

    Good new place for Solihull which does offer a wide range of nice restaurants downtown. The food was good but rich especially for a 7 courses menu. The noise ambience was quite high with one one side some loud music and the other side a group of people making quite lots of noise

    All 7 courses were excellent - and the wine pairing with each course was at times jaw-dropping. Was a pleasure to meet Rob - and he has an excellent team around him. There's no denying it isn't cheap once you include the wine pairing - but it's completely and utterly worth it. Can't recommend Toffs enough - simply brilliant.

    Possibly the best food we’ve ever had, congratulations to the team. Front of house was ok, but didn’t quite match the fantastic food. The greeting could have been more attentive ( table option, coats etc), no cocktails or aperitifs or wine flight option. Small points of improvement, a great night had and the food was sensational. Will definitely be returning.
