  • Wouldn't bother if I were you

    Stourbridge Restaurants

    Steak and ale pie sounded nice on the menu, but I suspect that Fray Bentos were the real cooks involved in its production. Dry and tasteless, but at least the mash with it was genuine - you could tell by the lumps. I finished with the syrup sponge which had spent a little too long in the microwave. All edible, but I could have thrown this together...

  • New "Italian" Restaurant in Moseley

    Moseley Restaurants

    I've been here a couple of times now and I wasn't impressed at first. The second time I went (very grudgingly), I had a really nice meal. It wasn't cheap and as far as authentic Italian goes, it was perhaps the more ubitquitous American interpretation of it. Having said that, it's always full, the service was good and the food hit the spot. Very...
