The Peel Hotel Aldergate, which is home to Christopher's Restaurant, is a hidden gem in the heart of Tamworth. The best clue as to location is virtually opposite the bus garage! Last Saturday (January 26), I was one of a party of 6 who were priviledged to enjoy the Gourmet Game Evening. It was food of the very highest quality. There were 7 Game Courses and a superb sweet for £35. In short form, the game used were (1) Mixed pheasant, partridge & guinea fowl terrine (2) Quenelles of rainbow trout mousse (3) Tandoori Quail (4) Half an oven roasted partridge (5) Saddle of rabbit (6) Individual game keepers pie (7) Venison medallions. The sauces were out of this world, the service attentive and very friendly, the atmosphere relaxed, the wine list varied and not unreasonable. We stayed over after blitzing the wine list. Our room was large, beautifully furnished with the usual 4* features of large plasma tv, coffee making facilities and a well fitted en-suite. The beds were very comfortable and although facing the front, there was no apparent noise from passing traffic. Breakast on Sunday morning was also a culinary gem. My friends all managed the Full English - which looked superb - but my appetite only left room for smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. Probably the best salmon I have ever tasted. Christopher's normal menu is varied with an abundance of choice to suit all tastes. What is apparent is that the ingredients are sourced locally (where possible) and are of the very highest quality. Because of the size of the Restaurant, booking is essential for most evenings. There are currently about 25 covers but it is planned to expand this to 40. I cannot wait for the next themed evening. They are usually on the last Saturday of each month. If you cannot justify going to Birmingham or London for a Michelin starred Restaurant - go to Christopher's - it is the nearest you will get to culinary heaven. Good Game - Good Game!
