Changing Rooms at Simpsons

This spring Simpsons Restaurant in Edgbaston will be undergoing extensive refurbishment to extend the main dining area and update the decor in the Grade II listed building.

The building work will commence in early April with completion planned for early August.

The refurbishment coincides with the Edgbaston restaurant having held a Michelin star for the past 11 years and has been organised by the building’s owners, Calthorpe Estates. The project will be delivered in partnership with Austin Newport as the main contractor, Lapworth Architects, SVM Associates and Thomasons Engineers. Leisure Concepts will take care of the internal decor and final design touches.

During the refurbishment, the main dining area will move into what is currently the lounge and private dining room. Simpsons will remain open as normal during the improvement works and all customers who have made a reservation which fall within the build period will be contacted by the Simpsons team.

Proprietor, Andreas Antona commented, “The refurbishment has been on the cards for a couple of years now, and during that time we have been working through plans to enhance the building in a manner that is sensitive to the buildings grade II listed status, whilst improving efficiency of service for the restaurant. It is a huge and exciting undertaking that will signal the beginning of a new era for Simpsons and underline our ambition to remain at the forefront of Birmingham’s dining scene.”

“We are planning to remain open during all but the most intensive periods of build work, however the refurbishment will inevitably mean some disruption for our diners. We will do our utmost to maintain our excellent service levels during the renovations and are confident that the new look Simpsons will be well received by our customers.”

Mark Lee, Calthorpe Estates Chief Executive said, “Simpsons in Edgbaston is the longest standing restaurant in Birmingham to hold a Michelin star and has an excellent reputation for premium standards of food and service. The improvements planned will enable Andreas and his team to further raise the bar of Birmingham’s food scene, which is enjoying international acclaim as a destination for superb gastronomic experience.”
