The Restaurant

The Lake at Barston Restaurant is located at the West Midlands Golf Club in Solihull, and is open to the general public.  All tables have a view of the 21 acre Barston Lake and we are open all day everyday (shorter hours in the winter).

We serve an English Pub & Grill menu with Burgers, Fish, Breakfast & light options, along with Steaks & Grills.  The menu served is the same in the informal Bar & Lounge area, or outside on the lawns, where you can order on an app (look in the App store for Elite Live) where you can order and pay on the app, and we will deliver your food to you.  In the Restaurant we still have traditional waiter service to your table.

We offer home cooked food prepared by our team of professional chefs, using fresh local produce wherever possible, we only serve British meats, fresh fish, free range eggs and fresh vegetables. 

We have a variety of rooms available for private dining, social functions, charity fundraisers, birthdays and weddings etc.  Please ask for details of hiring a room by calling or emailing us;

Bar & Lounge

The Bar is adjacent to the Restaurant, still with views of the lawns and the lake.  The adjacent Lounge can be booked for parties of up to 24 people and is an ideal room for an informal meeting or group meal.

It makes for a perfect place to meet up with friends for a spot of lunch, a relaxed pint or just for coffee after a stroll around the lake.  Visitors are welcome to walk dogs around the lake but according to the countryside laws they must be kept under close control or on a lead in order to protect the abundance of wildlife and ground nesting birds.
