You Brummies don't know how lucky you are. It must be nice to have a restaurant like this on your doorstep. For those of us unfortunate enough to live in what is fast becoming a culinary desert, it means a 180-mile round trip from Yorkshire. It was the first time I had seen the new look place after refurbishment. The... More

Food is still great at Simpsons, but the staff will cost this restaurant its star. Tables left dirty, drinks not poured, rude, uninterested. Plenty of alternative restaurant, I for one will not be back.

This was our first visit since the revamp. The new look is great in the lounge, it is much more relaxed and promotes a comfortable and enjoyable eating experience. The staff remain friendly, although perhaps lacking in knowledge and experience which is a shame. Food remains beautiful in both taste and presentation. I miss the classic look of the restaurant...

Taster menu. Wow! Superb food yet again. Since the recent refurb, Simpsons is now a busy, lively top quality restaurant. The wine pairing was fantastic and the sommelier was very knowledgeable despite being so young. I have to say I was really quite full by the end of the meal. Tops marks for the team.

Wanted to treat the family to Sunday lunch today. Food good but lacked warmth from the staff who felt like they were going through the motions rather than really going out to make people feel welcome. Food prices reasonable for Michelin star but extras including drinks and coffee tends to bump up the prices considerably. All the same an enjoyable... More

This was our first time visiting this Michelin starred restaurant. We had a five course tasting menu which was absolutely fabulous. The staff were friendly and attentive to our every need. Will definitely be recommending this restaurant. Keep up the good work.

I have long wanted to go to Simpsons and, sadly, was really disappointed. OK the restaurant is undergoing a refurb but, despite this, the whole venue seemed to lack atmosphere. The staff did just about enough to be OK, but we had to keep asking for a wine refill and were not asked if we wanted coffee at the end... More

My husband and I stayed in one of the 4 bedrooms for the night and ate in the restaurant. The room was super, luxurious, clean, big and tasteful. The restaurant is nicely decorated although nothing stunning. Staff friendly enough but not fabulous. Food really really good, but not quite excellent which for the price is a shame. I would recommend,... More

I second every word of Rackface's review below which is spot on. As a group of 8 most of us were impressed with our food, but not universally so. However, we felt abandoned at the far end of the conservatory (which lacks atmosphere) until one of our party complained at which point the service improved markedly. At nearly £1200, admittedly...

Accomplished cooking as ever. However the service is now completely devoid of the charisma that is so essential in a restaurant like Simpsons. The youngsters that the restaurant have now decided go with seem knowledgeable enough but lack the personality to be welcoming guests. Tony and Geoff are no longer there and seem to have been replaced by adolescents. Some... More
