Whilst we love to take our tastebuds on a journey across the globe, and frequently indulge in every cuisine imaginable, sometimes you can’t beat a taste of home.
When we have so many amazing British dishes and stunning local ingredients, it would be rude not to partake in these as often as possible too. There is so much to celebrate about British cuisine, and we’ve heard of a place in Knowle that is showcasing the very best of British in the best possible way.
Located on Knowle High Street, Jacques is the stylish restaurant bringing the best of British to the leafy suburbs of Solihull.
The self-titled restaurant from acclaimed chef de patron, Jacques Van Der Merwe, Jacques is a restaurant to showcase his love affair with British cuisine, bringing the highest quality ingredients and classic dishes to the quaint High Street in the beautiful village of Knowle, this restaurant is a homage to all things British.
At Jacques the food is always freshly prepared using the finest, organic and locally-sourced ingredients. At Jacques they’re passionate about giving their customers the best experience in everything from the food to the atmosphere and the drinks. The seasonal menus feature Jacques’ take on the most delicious Great British dishes and are packed full of mouth-watering favourites.
Set in a renovated bank, the restaurant itself features a stunning glass terrace dining area set within truly elegant interiors, whilst the bar area provides the ideal setting to enjoy a pre or post-dinner drink. A lavish private dining area offers the perfect place for a private celebration or function, whilst the glass roof terrace is the ideal place to indulge in Afternoon Tea.
Whilst the menu changes seasonally, you can always expect high quality, organic ingredients and lovingly prepared dishes. From British oysters and caviar to slow-cooked lamb shank and British Wagyu beef steak, you’ll find all manner of delicious and enticing dishes to try on the A La Carte menu.
Enjoy Great British Cocktails and ‘Smoking’ Whiskies in Warren’s Bar, served in an atmosphere of urban sophistication. Discover a carefully curated wine list, to a selection of expertly crafted house cocktails, an extensive range of spirits and a selection of gin and tonics, there’s something to please every palate. After dinner, sip on one of their signature Irish coffees or espresso martinis for the perfect end to your delicious culinary adventure.
One of the great British pastimes is the decadent and indulgent affair that is Afternoon Tea. What’s not to love about sipping tea (or coffee, or even champagne – we won’t judge) and nibbling on the most exquisite cakes, pastries, sandwiches, sweets, and of course – scones. Heated debates aside about which you spread first (the jam or the cream), we can all agree that a delicious, freshly-baked scone is a wonder to behold – and Afternoon Tea is the perfect way to spend time with a loved one or friends.
Not ones to let a lockdown get them down, Jacques have launched their own To Go service to ensure all of their customers can enjoy the great taste of Jacques from the comfort of their homes. During lockdown, they’re offering a range of mouth-watering meals to go (think wagyu burger, steak, lobster roll, and more), alongside Afternoon Tea, selected wines, and cocktails to be collected or delivered. They even have a Sunday Lunch at home option too! They have you covered whatever the occasion, so grab yourself a delicious meal from Jacques To G0 and improve your lockdown by a factor of 500.
