My other half and I popped in on spec. She had seen it on the internet on the way into Birmingham and noticed it was billed as the 'Biggest Sunday Lunch In Town'. This fitted the bill nicely as I had been fasting over night and was starving so to speak. The format is slightly unusual, as there is an unlimited buffet section, plus the main meal itself plus dessert. All for £19.95 per person. We figured that we usually spend that on a three course anyway so give it a go. I didn't really expect much from the buffet but was hopeful for the main after seeing that one of the meats (we usually have beef) was a rib roast. I must say I was very pleasantly surprised when I saw the buffet section. A huge selection of cured meats (including carved to order Iberico ham) and pates, cheeses, salad and deli items, breads, smoked salmon, fresh salmon and soup of the day. All unlimited to help yourself to at any time of the meal. After we had finished with the buffet to start with, we told our waiter and he brought the main courses. Fantastic! Perfectly cooked (pink as ordered) thick slices of rib roast beef. Tasted superb. Really beefy flavour with a lovely rich gravy. Roast potatoes as normal and vegetables. Exceptional quality. I always find that a specialist roast is far nicer than a carvery offering if it's a quality joint and cooked correctly. This was awesome! We then had dessert (included in the price). 1 cheesecake and 1 sticky toffee pudding. The sticky toffee pudding was excellent. Very light yet rich. The cheesecake not so great but still nice. Good size portions though. Then, back to the buffet for a cheese course. Big selection of quality cheeses and fancy biscuits and accompaniments. Overall, the best Sunday lunch ever. On the negative side the restaurant is a little lacking in atmosphere. Clean but darkly decorated with too many dark wood panels. And beware, the drinks are expensive. Delicious but expensive. Service wise, our waiter, Kazi was extemely helpful and attentive. I will be back soon! Overall - excellent!
