Loves was recommended to us as a great place to eat by the canal in Birmingham city, it was just that. We had a great meal overlooking a very quiet part of the canal a few mins walk from the mail box and Brindley Place. The staff were excellent, attentive but not in your face. The menu was quite small... More

We went to celebrate a big birthday and opted for the £55 taster menu with wine. The service throughout was fantastic and the food was consistently creative, tasty and beautifully presented. The food is almost impossible to fault. For me they lose a star for the environment. The restaurant is a bit dreary and not upmarket enough for the quality... More

We went here for my birthday and had the most amazing meal, the best meal I've ever had I would say. I don't normally write reviews but just had to share how wondeful this restaurant was. The food was absolutely gorgeous and the service was just as impressive. Sometimes I've found that with really nice restaurants there has been a... More

First time we had visited the restaurant although recommended by many of our friends (and some of them chefs or just plain fussy!!). Opted for the taster menu at £55 and was not disappointed at all. The food was just beautiful and portions appropriate. Flavours were amazing and of course, presentation to match. Our only disappointment was the limited a... More

This was our second visit. We had a wonderful evening. Staff were attentive and charming. Claire's wine knowledge was second to none, a true ambassador for the English wine industry. We ate from the a large carte menu , each dish was stunning, the dark chocolate and pear dessert was a lesson We have eaten at many great restaurants around... More

In short, fabulous. The food was quite honestly some of the best I've eaten, anywhere. We plumbed for the 10 course taster menu and accompanying wine selection. I genuinely do not have a negative word to say. The food was utterly wonderful. Perfect size courses, visually beautiful without being ostentatious, and the wine was equally as perfect - if not...

Had Sunday lunch in May food was excellent service good and great value. Only complaint was, we were the first to arrive and opted for the tasting menu, when other people arrived they had the tasting menu and we noticed nobody in the whole restaurant had the same food as us, a little bit gutted but never the less great...

Visited this restaurant for the first time on a Friday, it seemed relatively quiet. Tables are well spread out and so you don't feel cramped. From beginning to end the service and advice was great. Claire the owner knows her stuff, but doesn't over power you with it with regard to wine or food. We all decided to go a... More

It’s the second time we’ve been here and both times the food and service was absolutely amazing. The restaurant is tucked away in canal front location just outside Brindley Place, so you get the nice surroundings without everyone walking past staring in the window. The service is excellent with very friendly and knowledgeable staff. The food is amazing and im... More

Visited this small but charming restaurant on Saturday last. Just 4 of us and we were greeted by name on arrival. I checked to see if I'd left my name tag on! Great reception and attentive from the outset. We all went for the 10 course taster with wine. Food was first rate and wine matched perfectly. Claire Love was... More
