Good news for foodies in Birmingham!

Peel's at Hampton Manor Hotel in Hampton In Arden is one of only 18 restaurants to gain a star in the Michelin Guide Great Britain and Ireland 2017.

The news has gone down very well at VisitBirmingham, which sees the Michelin star as a boost to the West Midland's tourism economy.

Tim Manson, Operations & Policy Director at Visit Birmingham, said:

The decision to award Hampton Manor with Greater Birmingham’s sixth Michelin star is a further boost to an increasingly significant part of this region’s tourism economy.

More than three-quarters of our visitors come here (77%) to experience our wide-ranging and accessible food and drink sector – whether it’s Michelin-starred restaurants, our growing street food scene, balti establishments or independent festivals.
