Description: The Beeches Bar and Grill is an informal yet chic restaurant in Solihull within the appealing village setting of Hampton in Arden, with chunky wooden tables inviting you to enjoy scenic views over the rolling hills of the Solihull countryside. Featuring six different steaks in varying sizes, the restaurant also has plenty of grilled fish, sharing platters, salads and tapas options, with traditional roasts on Sunday lunch. The restaurant is inspired by a simple take on top quality dining, offering a comfortable venue for anything from a lazy weekend brunch to a quick drink after work or even a round of golf. Despite its relaxed atmosphere however, it is still stylish enough to bring a touch of class to any evening out. Warm colours, cosy sofas and daily newspapers are also part of the experience. Whatever the reason for dining, you can look forward to a friendly welcome.

“Good but could be so much better”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

Having not been here for a couple of years I was keen to see if the place was as good as my last visit. The food was of a good standard and the staff were ok but need to be a bit more enthusiastic about the place and the menu.
We found the prices ok but then we did have a 2for1 groupon voucher so that made it good value. I really like the restaurant area and the views out the window are very pleasant so all in all the Beeches is well above average but I just cant help feeling based on this visit that it is not the place it once was, which is a shame because it has the potential to be up there with the best in the Solihull area.

“Pleasant”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

The meal was pleasant. We were a large party and thankfully the menu had 3 choices for each course. The atmosphere in the bar was lively, appeared to be the place to be seen!
I had the crispy duck salad for starters which unfortunately was too crispy and I thought it had cracked a tooth at one point. The veg curry main was fantastic though, very tasty with a depth of flavour and different textures - I would eat this happily at every visit. The rice was sticky though and clumped together - not rinsed before cooking maybe?
The cheese plate for desert was ok if a bit boring. All in all a pleasant but average meal but I will try others in the area next time, Definitely be back for the veg curry though.

“A safe bet for a great evening!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We have been several times now and always have a good time. The menu is extremely varied and updated regularly. The beef wellington was particularly good and it is impressive how they cope with such a wide menu without compromising on quality. When the lobster wasn't available, they were very apologetic and offered alternative suggestions.

Excellent range of wines. It was also surprising not to be rushed off our table given that we went on a very busy Friday. We were made to feel that we could take our time and enjoy our meals! We will definitely continue to go!

As a group of 8 everyone was pleased and positive and we can be fussy! Well done and keep it up!

“Wait was well worth it”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Have used The Beeches a number of times over the years, so thought I should review it. We visited this time on a Bank Holiday at about 5.30pm and our food order was taken. It was only when we enquired after about alf an hour where our food was that we were told they didn't start serving food until 6pm!!!
When food did eventually arrive you couldn't fault it - absolutely brilliant and a varied selection to suit everyone including a number of daily specials. They were also very accommodating for children including half portions of mains and desserts.
I would certainly have no hesitation recommending The Beeches to anyone.
Also benefits from large car park and garden.

“Treat Yourself”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

We celebrated our 5th Wedding Anniversary here and it was a treat. An informal atmosphere but still special. The food was excellent and staff friendly and attentive.
