Award-winning restaurants

Our vision to create a fine dining quarter started over 15 years ago with the arrival of Andreas Antona who opened Simpsons and established the first award-winning Michelin starred restaurant in Edgbaston.

Simpsons Michelin starred restaurant

The presence of Birmingham’s most celebrated restaurant, Simpsons, has given Edgbaston a deserved reputation for fine dining, which has been enhanced further by its award-winning team.

Chef patron Andreas Antona and chef director Luke Tipping, brought their venture from Kenilworth to a Grade II-listed building on Highfield Road in 2004, and within a year had been awarded a Michelin star, which they have retained to this day. With the refurbishment they created a beautiful landscaped garden, extended the dining area and introduced eye-catching geometric windows, featuring handmade glass mosaics and a new curved roof.

A selection of places to eat


Simpsons, owned by Andreas Antona, is a multi award-winning and Michelin starred restaurant. The team headed up by chef director, Luke Tipping, and head chef, Leo Kattou, provide the best quality in food and service all with a smile and real style. Located in the heart of Edgbaston Village and the gastro quarter, the stunning restaurant offers an informal, contemporary and elegant dining experience to reflect the spirit of fine dining today. The British inspired menu's use seasonal and the best ingredients, diners can enjoy a memorable gourmet experience.
