Emporio Artari started life deep in the Italian Alps in 1886, the new location in Solihull’s Touchwood is the first in the UK to house this authentic Italian brand. The restaurant design is beautifully balanced both in terms of structure and use of colour palette. The menu by Lucarelli and Aldo Zilli is as you would expect authentically Italian and delightful.

Woodkraft is the latest venture from Simon Wood, MasterChef Champion 2015.

Simon’s ethos of using best seasonal produce is evident throughout the Woodkraft menu and is delivered in a very relaxed and informal setting.

Woodkraft features the very best local provincial produce using the philosophy of farm to fork, working with locally sourced products that benefit the diners as well as small scale local growers and producers. Dishes reflect basic Wood principles and are all made from scratch, and feature seasonal inspiration coupled with familiar traditional dishes and flavours.
