A true expression of British terroir within the moment
Originally from Birmingham, Chef & his partner Holly Carter opened Carters of Moseley in 2010.
Brad didn’t take the normal route other successful chefs take. There were no stages in Michelin-starred kitchens, no mentors holding his hand & showing him the ropes. He did it the hard way, self-taught, rolling with the punches & bouncing back off the ropes.
Recognition for celebrating British produce soon came from the top when they won Good Food Guide Readers’ Restaurant of the Year in 2013 & then were awarded a coveted Michelin Star in September 2015. The restaurant then went on to be named in the Sunday Times Top 100, National Restaurant Awards Top 100 & won the OpenTable Diners’ Choice ‘Fit for Foodies’ Award in 2019.
Brad Carter is also the founding member of the Birmingham Slow Food movement & a supporter of the Ark of Taste. The Ark of Taste travels the world collecting small-scale quality productions that belong to the cultures, history & traditions of the entire planet: an extraordinary heritage of fruits, vegetables, animal breeds, cheeses, breads, sweets & cured meats.
Run by a friendly, engaging team, who will turn your visit into a real event, & is led by passionate self-taught chef-owner Brad Carter.
He has a keen interest in the historical elements of cooking, so while his dishes are modern & creative, they also champion heritage ingredients. In order to reduce the restaurant’s carbon footprint, he sources as much local produce as possible.
Carters’ sample menus showcase the finest seasonal produce, featuring foraged flora and wild fauna native to the UK. Our culinary approach blends ancestral techniques like fire and fermentation with a modern spirit of creative innovation.
Wine pairings focus on artisanal growers who practice modern & traditional styles of natural farming & winemaking. A full list is also available.
