Good Food Guide's Restaurant of the Year 2015
Elizabeth Carter, Consultant Editor of the Good Food Guide, said:
‘It was such a tough judging assignment this year – every one of our regional winners was operating at such a high standard. But ultimately Brad Carter and Holly Jackson’s small neighbourhood restaurant won our hearts and the Good Food Guide’s Readers’ Restaurant of the Year award.
'Exceptional friendliness, sheer professionalism, value for money and food that is not only delicious but also properly prepared, seasonal and locally sourced may be a simple recipe for success, but not many manage to get it so right. I wish every town had a restaurant of this standard.
“Lovely little neighbourhood restaurant with black ash tables and a glass-fronted cabinet running down one wall. Each dish is made up of three key components - which can include some unusual ingredients; combinations are well-balanced and flavours are intense. The young team are friendly and engaging.”
OpenTable Diners’ Choice ‘Fit for Foodies’ Award 2019nationalrestaurantawards.co.uk
“Part of a new generation of young, ambitious chefs that are pushing the boundaries of what British food can be, Brad Carter goes deeper than most into exploring the idea of terroir in cooking. Wild game, foraged herbs, forgotten ingredients and rare-breed animals are the lifeblood of a cooking style that looks to change how we think about our own food.”

“Dishes are inventive and playful, such as the signature Porthilly oysters cooked in beef fat or razor clams with Old Winchester cheese and pepper dulse – a kind of British take on cacio e pepe.”

Carters is an amiable set-up that mixes classy informality with modern British food of the best sort. ‘Simple, affordable and fun’ are the watchwords, but there’s nothing flippant about the results on the plate – witness clear-flavoured seasonal dishes.

Also Back in 2015 Carters was a runner up in best restaurant award as voted for by readers of Observer Food Monthly.
“Fine dining is misleading, perhaps. There's nothing stiff or formal about Carters, and the non-optional five-course dinner experience feels like an adventure rather than an imposition.”
Tom Parker-Bowls - The Mail Onlinedailymail.co.uk
“There’s incredible value too, £65 for course upon course of some of the best food I’ve eaten all year. And this coming from a man who still lives in fear of the tasting menu’s tyranny. No clarting about – Carters is a Brummie star, with true bostin’ fittle.”
