On Tuesday 26th January 2016 Adam's re-opens from the winter holiday in it's new permanent home of Waterloo Street. The British Michelin Starred 36 seater restaurant located in Birmingham city centre is run by Chef patron Adam Stokes and his wife Natasha. In addition to the main restaurant which seats tables of up to 10 guests an adjacent 16 seater dining room is available for private functions. For that extra special experience there is also a chef's table located in the kitchen for exclusive use or individual groups. A la carte and tasting menus are served alongside a three course lunch menu available 12noon to 2pm, Tuesday to Friday. Please note the tasting menu is the only dining option

Huge attention to detail and an exquisite menu. If we were being super critical some of the staff were oddly a little scruffy and we felt a bit overfaced with desserts but it deserves it's Michelin star.

We went to Adams for the second time for my wife's birthday. The taster menu was out of this world. The service just as good and the staff were friendly, talkative and not stuffy like some Michelin starred restaurants. We can't recommend this place enough.
