For a truly exceptional dining experience in stunning surroundings, The Bracebridge is the place to be. Sitting perfectly on the edge of Bracebridge Pool, with décor that exudes luxury and opulence, and a high-class seasonal menu, this is the perfect spot to spend time with friends and family.

For a more relaxed atmosphere, you can enjoy the equally impressive culinary creations in a more informal setting outside. More casual than the main restaurant, but just as decadent, The Terrace is a fantastic place to meet with friends and take in the wonderful views of Bracebridge Pool – perfect on a summer’s day.

Set against the picturesque backdrop of the majestic and historic Sutton Park, offering a unique and memorable place to dine, drink and relax.

Chilli squid was rubbery and breadcrumbs fell off without any resistance. Peppercorn sauce taste more like gravy than peppercorn sauce. Waiters when not serving or taking orders would stand and chat and not look the opposite way of all the customers rather than looking to check if anyone had any concerns or needed their attention

Drive through the park wasn't great due to pot holes, it could really do with a one way system being in place especially with walkers on the road.
Food was really lovely, definitely recommend the Sunday roast.
However could do with spacing out the seating of the tables so able to have a better conversation. Sat next to a table when the others in the area are empty wasn't great.

Food took an hour to arrive, but did not order starters and perhaps restaurant short staffed. When it did arrive the food was excellent, but the staff could have been slightly more attentive.

Food was of a good standard and the young lady who served us was sweet. The only things I would comment on was that the wait time was a little long for drinks and food considering there was only 2 tables in the restaurant whilst we were waiting. We also ordered the fish pie and were told after ordering it wouldn't be prepared for another hour. So perhaps to be told what wasn't available before we ordered would be a good idea. Food was lovely tho and thanks for looking after our pizza whilst we went for a walk! :)

Bracebridge was great for lunch after Christmas. The food was lovely and good value for money. We sat outside and it was toasty. The lights and rugs really added together to make a great atmosphere. The service was excellent.
We’ll definitely go again.

Not up to their usual standard sadly. More Training needed for young and inexperienced staff. Smaller portions than normal and had to return a meal. Tough times for the industry. Keen to see our fave return to usual perfection.

My husband and I were not happy with the festive Turkey roast, very dry and trimmings were limited. Food didn’t seem fresh, felt it’s reheated, hence roast potatoes hard and dry. The food went cold so quickly. Was so excited about having family Christmas meal out and wasn’t impressed with this meal. My sons enjoyed the fillet steak, pizza and dessert. However we had to request a steak knife. The cocktails and drinks were nice. Be nice to have had more dessert options as I didn’t like anything on the menu. I’m not keen on Black Forest or sticky toffee. We go to many restaurants and normally I always find something on a dessert menu.

Choose this place for my husband’s birthday.
Lovely place, fabulous staff. Was worried about being outside mid December but with the heaters and lap blanket it was very cosy.
Will definitely go back with friends as well.
Thanks 🙏

Bracebridge is a great place to eat either inside or semi outside under the superb canopy. Great lighting and ambience combined with excellent food choices. This is currently my restaurant of choice in the Sutton Coldfield area.

Sorry guys but lots of empty tables inside but was seated next to table of loud ladies (just the two of us) the salmon started i couldn't taste anything other than the salmon. Dirty wine glass given had to replace, waited along time for order to be taken. Turkey tasted processed, veg not cooked enough. Service charge added automatically and paid as just wanted to leave. Will not recommend or return! Place was quarter full goodness knows what it would have been like if full.!!!

Beautiful setting and atmosphere, however we found the festive menu and the food quality lacking. Raw pigs in blankets, hard stuffing balls and had to request cranberry sauce. The deserts were also mediocre.
