69 High Street, Harborne, BIRMINGHAM, B17 9NS

3 rosettes

On an innocuous row of shops on the busy high street of the Birmingham suburb of Harborne you'll find the smart grey frontage of this restaurant, and a glance inside reveals a stylish space with formally laid tables and a touch of class. This is chef-patron Richard Turner's place and his name is scored into the mirrors on the wall lest you forget. The menu format consists of a tasting menu and the 'Simply Turners' option, which is a sort of make-your-own menu of either three, four, five or six courses, plus a set-lunch option. The slick service adds to the impression that you're somewhere special. Richard's cooking is contemporary and refined, but the modern elements are restrained and subtle (no smoke and mirrors here), and the quality of the ingredients resonates from start to finish. A scallop dish includes céviche, salt-baked celeriac, apple, yogurt and horseradish in a creative interpretation of a modern classic, while pig's trotters come in a terrine with roast langoustine, buttermilk and oriental flavours. A fish option might be John Dory with crayfish and crab, and a tasting of new season's lamb arrives with wild garlic, morels and lamb jus. Choose from a couple of dessert courses (or have both), with Yorkshire rhubarb starring in a crumble soufflé served with custard ice cream, and a strawberry offering such as Arctic roll with hibiscus jam. There are champagne cocktails and a bespoke beer selection, while the wine list has a good showing by the glass.
