Food served all day!
We have visited the Highfield on numerous occasions for lunch, dinner and Sunday lunch. Whilst the food was up to the usual high standards, the service on Monday evening was very poor. We had to ask for menus, I sat looking at our drinks sat on the bar wondering if they were ever going to be brought over and then watched a girl checking out her phone before asking whether our plated food was ready to take? Not sure what was going on with the staff, the service was seriously lacking.
Great brunch pre degree ceremony celebration.
Delicious and healthy!
As lovely as ever. First time I have taken a vegetarian friend and she wasn’t disappointed. Very good value with £15 loyalty email.
Always a lovely friendly vibe
A real find looking forward to our next visit great service and food
I accept that we were MUCH older than the rest of the clientele but the noise level was VERY high. It was very difficult for 5 of us on a very nice round table to hold a conversation. Food was good especially fish of the day.
Great staff, nice feel to the place and food was good value
Overall it was a great experience. The décor was beautiful, a lot of natural light coming through even though it wasn't a cloudy day. You'd expect the price to be higher from such a beautifully layed out environment as well but it wasn't. The set menu where you pick a starter and a lunch is around £13 which is a bargain compared to other lunch deals out there.
The only down side was there was a couple who came after us, ordered after us but got their starter+mains before ours. Other than that it was perfect
It all started with a fantastic service. Very friendly staff, very attentive. Loved the touch when the waiter brought out the stake recommendation, have only seen this in Gordon Ramsey TV shows. the food was simple and awesome. My husband loved the lobster and the beef was awesome as well. The stake with salad was heavenly. all in all very good experience, thanks!!
We decide to have a meal on the day so booked got the evening. We have previously been for a Sunday lunch
Lots of choice especially as a Thursday is fish night. We had a nice table & the service was very good. The food was excellent.....a really nice evening...the gin & tonics were great as well!
It was very nice, we were the only diners at one point but it was a Tuesday afternoon.
Waitress really helpful, bought us half a lemon with cloves in to help with wasps.
Food was nice - portions not to big.
The High Field has a lovely atmosphere, trendy, with outdoor space and nicely decorated. On this occasion, though, I chose Miso Aubergine from the Specials having forgotten that Miso is quite salty and I don't like a lot of salt so it was a poor choice on my part. Food was beautifully presented but I will select something else next time ... and there will be a next time!
Service was poor. I had to send the eggs Benedict back because the hollandaise was awful. I’d not go there for breakfast again.
Great Sunday lunch......Super value for quality offered....
Fab as always!
The chap who served us was superb
Funny knowledgeable helpful but not intrusive
Added greatly to our enjoyment of dinner
Amazing food...great service....The place has a super location and great atmosphere. Cant wait to return
Very good food and service, great environment, very clean and welcoming. Situated in a very nice area of Edgbaston. Highly recommend.
A second visit to the lovely High Field! This time was a lovely early evening birthday meal for dad’s 80th! A really nice ambience and in my godmother’s old family home where she was born and brought up.
Lovely service and our waitress was brilliant - and attentive when needed. A good menu selection and good wine! They were able to cater to a youngster with rather fussy food fads! They were even happy and helpful to bring in a birthday cake that we sneaked in for the occasion. As the night wore on, it was eventually busy with Saturday evening revellers enjoying the bar and outside terrace. Highly recommended.
Bit expensive for the food you get. Very busy.
Excellent customer service here as always. Team were happy to put back our table for an hour to accommodate latecomers. First day of the new menu and the staff were knowledgeable about the dishes and able to recommend. Food was fresh and well presented and there was a nice buzz for a midweek get together with friends. Recommended!
Well we were 4 girls, only had one course and table was booked for 8... sat down a bit late as had drink, so prob nearly 8.30. Only ordered main and served at 10pm!!!
Totally ridiculous and we were so fed up waiting - I had veg risotto which only had peas and weird bean things - cud have had all delicious and colourful veg, especially this time of year so was pretty boring to be honest. I love the Highfield but this was pretty disappointing... hopefully next time is better :)
Not very impressed. The main course was tepid and served on barely warm plates. Then, having given us dessert menus, the waiting staff made no attempt to take our order for desserts. Eventually we had to wave at one of them to get some attention.
The restaurant was very noisy and so not really conducive to conversation, which is one of the points of going out.
All in all, not what I would expect. We paid our bill and left. We shall not be back.
I have visited the highfield on a few occasions now and have never been disappointed. The sunday dinnrr sss fabulous, the wine perfect, the gin delicious and the ambience perfect.
As a long standing patron of the high field I feel pained to leave a bad review.....but
We had a twilight zone experience - seems they took on a load of new staff who were poorly trained, couldn’t even use the till properly to place our food order and smashing glassware every 5 minutes.
Food order came twice and when I tried to pay the bill had to explain how the tab system worked to the person behind the bar! (Customer training the bar staff - not good).
The bill was wrong too so had to get that corrected.
All the tables were not being cleared leaving filthy dishes everywhere
Granted it was a busy service but no excuse for this level of incompetence - please, please, please fix ASAP - I want come back but not while it is in it’s current state :-(
A good venue and always enjoy going there for lovely food.
Very good food, friendly staff.
Fab food, fab price, lovely atmosphere, didn't feel rushed
Thank you for a lovely mother’s day Sunday lunch. A great afternoon.
Birthday and Mother’s Day with my family . Loved it great service , great food ! Didn’t get my birthday drink but had the best day !!
The Spring menu doesn't have the lovely plaice fillets or shoulder of lamb or mushroom risotto which is a huge pity. I ordered the spring vegetable risotto thinking it would be as delicious as the mushroom risotto but it was very bland and tasted like boiled rice with a few peas thrown in. What a disappointment. I don't know if I will be returning again in Spring or if I will wait until they change the menu again in Summer. Sunday roasts are always very good, hopefully that won't have changed !!
I go fairly often as its close to work.
Went for Saturday night dinner. Starter was really nice, the recommended creme egg cake thing was grainy and unpleasant, but my £28 rib eye steak was the biggest disappointment, decidedly average and served with the pale under cooked chips and a cold Bearnaise sauce. The waitress was lovely, (in fact all of the staff here always are), and got me some different chips but they were again pale and under cooked, but she was so nice i hadn't the heart to complain again.
I'd say its fine for lunch when you're eating from the 2 course for £12(ish) option, but id have to say, considering i spent £140 for 2 people, i feel like i got really bad value for money. I certainly will not be returning again for pleasure, but it wont stop me coming when work are picking up the tab.
Warm welcome on a bitterly cold winters evening.
Nice ambiance and good selection of tracks on the background music, not the most extensive menu but enough to have a varied choice.
I had the chillie linguine, my better half had the deep fried Camembert both being very nice. For main I had the sea bass risotto which was also nice with the other main being a larger version of the linguine.
We had floater whiskey coffees to end as we were full.
All in all a very nice experience thank you.
First visit to Highfield and enjoyed a good Sunday roast in vibrant surroundings! Will return soon I hope
Food was great, little let down by the waiting staff, were pretty miserable till it came to paying the bill, I didn’t leave a tip as I felt it was too little to late. At one point a waitress practically threw the plate in front of another diner, was very surprised by this kind of behaviour in such a nice restaurant.
Great food, good atmosphere, service good but lacked attentiveness - had to chase for service , desert menus and bill.
Nice restaurant but the table we had for four was very close to other tables. Staff in general were very friendly but our waitress was less friendly and rather ‘matter of fact’
Maybe my expectations were too high but it really did not live upto them. Venue was good and service the same but the food was a let down. Trying to be fair the starter and desert were both good but my steak was poor - it was not worth causing a scene on Valentines night but it was a let down
The girl who served our table was excellent and possible one if best we have ever had ten out if ten
Good food and trendy place
Service was very good this time around. Food wasn’t.
The bloomer with garlic bread was terrible. Bread seemed stale. It was hard inside the loaf so I’m assuming it had been microwaved. It arrived barely warm with ice cold garlic butter that we couldn’t spread. Huge fail.
Sunday roast was just okay. Portion size was decent. Yorkshire pud was okay. Vegetables were okay. Pork was the thin sliced variety... akin to what you’d find on a supermarket deli counter.
The price, while not high, meant I’d expect to receive something better than what they’re serving. I’ve had meat that tasted more authentic at a cheap carvery.
I’ve since discovered that they offer “bottomless” Yorkshire puddings, roast potatoes and vegetables and that a server offers them at your table. We were offered no extras and at no point was it made clear that we could have had more. So maybe I overrated the service.
Excellent food and service as usual
