My partner and I recently visited loves for the second time since it opened. This time on a Friday night instead of a Saturday. We were very pleased with the meal and the food was even better than last time if that’s possible. As for once this summer it was not raining, we chose to sit outside and enjoy a drink before we ate. I was very glad to see that the drinks menu now includes a cocktail list, meaning I picked a lovely Cosmo with a hidden twist of marmalade vodka in it! My other half ordered a glass of Grenache I think it’s called Willunga which was very fresh and not too heavy, actually a very enjoyable red.
Having gone straight from work, we opted for the two course deal which costs £34.50 I think. My partner order the mini melo of salmon that is served warm and melted in the mouth and is served with a lightly battered oyster. I ordered the pigeon with chocolate and cherries. The pigeon was stunning, served pink and beautifully tender and the chocolate and cherries added to the depth. We ordered the rib eye to share, which was served with tomatoes, mushrooms, and a selection of veg. We were also given a lovely copper pot with mash potato to share which was again lovely. The rib eye was so tender and perfectly seasoned; I wish I could cook my steaks with that much flavour!
We finished with coffee and petit fours, the free coffee refills are definitely a plus point... The service was excently, definitely the right side of formal and professional. We never had to wait for our glasses to be topped up, and the plates were cleared not long after we had finished. The waitresses were very friendly, Claire, came over to chat to use in the evening as we had be asking about the wine. She is certainly knowledgeable about her wines and is incredibly passionate about the restaurant.
The bill cost to just over £100 for two of us and we will definitely be going back in the near future and I only see the food getting better. Compared to the other leading restaurants in Birmingham, I can see myself eating here regularly as the atmosphere and food are definitely a cut above the rest!
