69 High Street, Harborne, BIRMINGHAM, B17 9NS

3 rosettes

The neat grey facade of Turners is unmistakable among the parade of shops on Harborne's high street. The modestly sized interior has had a new lick of paint and the addition of some chandeliers, but the wall mirrors etched with chef-patron Richard Turner's name remain, as do welcoming, friendly and attentive staff. The Simply Turners menu gives diners the flexibility of choosing up to six courses, which allows them the opportunity to sample the range of the kitchen's output. Richard follows a modern British approach, with some European flourishes, paying regard to flavour and texture combinations in his dishes, which means respecting his raw materials in terms of contrast and harmony. Mackerel with seaweed and horseradish may precede an impressive starter of langoustines with apple, celeriac and celery, followed in turn by the rich, forthright tastes of Anjou pigeon with duck liver, truffle, artichokes and watercress. Sea bass fillet is fashionably paired with oxtail and served with Yukon gold, salsify, chard and Jerusalem artichoke, and venison fillet with beetroot and accompanied by chervil root, pear and sprouts. Happy endings are guaranteed when there's raspberry and lemon verbena soufflé to go for. There's also a good-value set-price lunch and a tasting menu.
