Travelled down from sheffield to Birmingham especially and was so looking forward to our meal. Only to find the place shut down! Very very disappointing that the restaurant hadn’t done us the courtesy of informing us ahead so we might have made alternative arrangements. For an establishment like this, I’d have expected a lot more. There’s no point having a Michelin star if that’s how customers are treated!

Starters were good.. tartar (although the egg was over cooked and a bit hard..). Main courses were mostly ok, although I opted for the Tom's Burger which wasn't too impressive. Overall, would come back but still some improvement to be had..

I imagine once the centre has more retail outlets leading to more casual footfall, the restaurant will benefit from more of an atmosphere. That being said its a nice relaxing place to stop after serious shopping

I felt like telling her to forget it and walking out. Luckily all the other staff were fantastic but she’s put me off ever coming again.

We all ate from the fixed price menu which is also the pre theatre menu. Two courses for £20 plus a glass of Prosecco which was swopped for a small glass of house wine when asked. Nice starters and then we all had the minute steak and fries with varying degrees of success. Good flavour but chewy. Finished with a coffee and the bill was £30 per head, we had a bottle of red wine and a couple of glasses of rose. Would recommend for lunch or pre theatre otherwise it looked rather pricey.

Our starters were amazing and were good value in terms of portion size. The mains arrived and two of our party really enjoyed them and three did not. Steaks were dry, tasteless (well any taste was masked by the overpowering burnt taste - I realise that it was a char-grilled steak but if all that you can taste is burn, is it a good idea to char-grill?). The risotto tasted like baby food. The staff made a great gesture of goodwill so I'm satisfied in that respect but won't return as the food was below par and not cheap.

Mains of pork and the duck salad were beautifully cooked and presented, and the banoffee gateau was divine. Only criticisms would be that the crackling was too hard and the ice cream dessert was poor on presentation and very soft; ie melting in a glass! Our waitress was patient, knowledgeable and attentive despite being very busy.

Waited an hour for our starters (although very welcome compensatory bread and olives helped pass the time) - slightly disappointed that waiting staff did not know who had ordered what but stood at the end of the table and called out what they had brought. Great wine list - very attentive pouring by staff Had a great evening but too many niggles to rush back
