McKee's Brasserie has become the gourmet headquarters for Balsall Common villagers and foodies from neighbouring Coventry and Solihull. With its themed menu nights and cooking club classes, McKee's restaurant attracts locals as well as business types from the Birmingham airport and tourists from Stratford-upon-Avon and Warwick Castle. The warm and inviting coffee and caramel toned dining room is traditional with its candlelit tables and low-lit lamps, and treats from the restaurant's modern Brit menu include the tiger prawn salad in a lime, coriander, lemon, soy and garlic dressing; the half a duck served with leek and strips of bacon topped with port sauce; and the warm brownie served with berries and pistachio ice cream.

This would have been a 5 star review except the chicken main course was rather ordinary. The amuse bouche, starters ( trio of seafood and savoury pancake) and the desserts (lemon tart and dessert medley) were all excellent.

Would have been nice to have had proper butter (and on the table rather than have to ask for it) and cream (or choice) with the coffee.
Otherwise it was excellent!

Service was very good
Disappointed with the Leek and potato soup we would have preferred the potato’s in the soup individual not all mixed together
Were unable to taste the leeks just puréed potatoes
and the banana cheesecake didn’t taste very nice. It had a very strange taste
The main meal was delicious
Very warm and enjoyable

You get a really warm welcome and a good choice of menu. A very relaxed area to enjoy an aperitif and chose your meal. The dining area has a very pleasant ambiance which combined with a final bill that does not break the bank offers a very good dining experience.
The only difficulty that can arise is the limited parking although on this visit we able to move our vehicle into a properly designated space within a few minutes of our arrival.

Took my 92 yrs old mother and she thoroughly enjoyed the food. Wasn’t noisy but also wasn’t full. Probably could get noisy but staff very happy to move us mid meal if we had a problem.
We will certainly return.

My slow cooked beef was very dry with hardly any gravy.It would have been nicer cut smaller and with lots of gravy.The almond and pear tart was more like a sponge made with almond flour and no sign of any pear.Maybe I was given sponge by mistake.
The food is good value at £15 for3 courses but I think a little more attention to palatability would help.I think the kitchen can't manage to cater for large groups all at the same time.
We were told a large party was expected at 7 pm so arrived at 6.30 but our order was not taken till 7pm

Service as good as ever. Food okay but I can live without the amuse bouchée of insipid soup that tastes the same no matter what they call it. On this occasion it was apparently spinach and broccoli.

Arrived 20 minutes before the table booked time but was asked if we wanted to sit in the lounge or go to the table as it was cleared ready for us. The waiting staff were very friendly and our requests for water/ drinks were brought to us straight away. The food was of high quality, sufficient quantity and nicely presented. We found the cost of the drinks to be average price and overall the bill was very reasonable.

Much better service and food on the last two visits. Could leave out the tasteless complimentary soup though. No matter what they call it, it is bland insipid stuff. My Mum loves this place and it does seem to be favoured by an older clientele

It was a great pleasure to treat five special friends to a summer lunch celebration at McKees. The fish main and vegetarian dishes and accompanying vegetables were beautifully cooked and presented, and the various deserts were light and complemented the main meals. Most wonderful of all was the quiet ambience of the dining room. Congratulations McKees! We will all be back.

Our wedding reception was perfect from the moment we made our entrance on the red carpet to the farewell greeting as we left. The food was delicious and the staff were polite and attentive. The room had been decorated just as we had requested and the service was impeccable. We would recommend this family-run firm most highly and will be returning to celebrate our anniversary (amongst other occasions) for many years to come.

Mediocre food. The amuse Boucher of leek and potato soup is always bland with an unpleasant texture- can make better myself. The vegiburger and chips were oily and otherwise tasteless. States that it is served with salsa- this must have soaked into the bread. Avocado was hard. Really needed some salad to balance it out. Coffee good and My dining companion enjoyed her desert. Service not as good as it used to be
