Our rambling club Christmas lunch was held here. Menu had a good choice, very reasonable price, lovely room to ourselves, good service and really good food, beautifully cooked. Each month there is a fixed price menu with a different choice of meals. They also have themed nights eg Burns night, Valentines etc.

An excellent choice from the menus on offer. Popular with the more mature customer and offering a warm welcome with friendly and efficient service from the waiting staff. Not too noisy even when quite busy. You can hear yourself speak which is sadly not always possible in some restaurants these days. Competitively priced menus and a hit with customers who... More

A business associate and myself had a very pleasant meal last evening at Mckees Brasserie (which is part of Haighs Hotel on the Kenilworth Road, Balsall Common). The environment was pleasing and inviting, with the staff making a quite fine effort in attention to detail and attentive service at all stages. There was standard menu with a Chef's Special menu...

When we visited this restaurant 3 years ago my main comment was the lack of supervision of young staff. Sadly nothing has changed which is a big disappointment especially as the food is good. There is nothing worse than sitting with dirty plates waiting to be cleared especially when plenty of young staff around who bring food to one table... More

We decided on this restaurant having looked at the sample menu for the Bank Holiday. What a find! Booking was easy and when the three of us arrived we were greeted most courteously and shown to the table in most pleasant surroundings. The lunch menu was very wide. There were canapés, a good choice of starters, then a little bowl... More
