Michelin-starred chef Rob Palmer opens new restaurant

Michelin-starred hotel chef Rob Palmer is preparing to open a fine dining restaurant in downtown Solihull, serving six to seven flavors. Local chef Rob Palmer is best known as the former Hampton Manor head chef, who earned Peel’s restaurant its first Michelin Star in 2016.

The chef will open the fine dining space with a modern industrial style interior and open-plan kitchen in the former Cex unit on Drury Lane. The restaurant named ‘Toffs’ will be able to host 26 guests at the same time. The restaurant will offer a six- to seven-course seasonal tasting menu with fresh and locally sourced ingredients from British suppliers. Rob Palmer says, “The meals will be similar in style to the menu I had at Hampton Manor. A six or seven course meal plus a few sweet treats.”

Toffs is scheduled to open in March.
