Richard Turner's Michelin-starred restaurant in Harborne has ditched its once-formal approach for more casual dining, without sacrificing on quality
Turners at 69 is the latest incarnation of chef Richard Turner’s Michelin-starred venue on the high street in the quaint Victorian suburb of Harborne. The area is becoming a bit of a foodie hotspot in Birmingham, with a variety of independent restaurants, as well as a couple of gastropubs and independent coffee shops.
The restaurant is intimate and atmospheric. However, the previously formal, heavily classic approach has been ditched in favour of a more casual attitude to dining. Accessibility is the new watch-word. Gone are the long tasting menus, replaced by a la carte and set lunches (£18 - £40). Has the quality suffered? Not according to the Michelin Guide. The newly revamped venue retained its Michelin Star in 2016
Turners is known for using high-quality seasonal produce, with a variety of British meats, seafood and vegetables throughout the menus. Expect the likes of Cornish oysters, Orkney scallops, wild seabass, monkfish and aged longhorn beef.
Classic traditional favourites take on new incarnations here - from pigeon Wellington to duck egg creme brulee. Formerly a little French-leaning, Turners now serves up a truly British fine dining menu. The wine list represents a carefully chosen selection of bottles from both Old and New Worlds, curated to compliment the gourmet cuisine on offer.
