A pair of new Birmingham restaurants have won coveted places in the Good Food Guide.

The 2014 edition, due to be published next Monday will feature Adam’s restaurant, on  Bennett’s Hill in the city centre, and Carters of Moseley, alongside established city favourites.

Adam’s, a temporary “pop-up” restaurant, was opened by Adam Stokes in April to run for 18 months while he secures a larger permanent venue in the city.

Carters, in St Mary's Row, Moseley, opened in November 2010.

The two restaurants are among eight new entries across the Midlands, including Beef in Kenilworth, High Pavement in Warwick and The Inn at Welland in Worcestershire.

The Good Food Guide publishers said the inclusion of 86 venues across the region reflected “the high standard of dining in the Midlands”.

Consultant editor Elizabeth Carter said: “The Midlands appears to be on a roll at the moment with a string of top restaurants and some fantastic new entries this year.

“The new restaurants in the Guide for the first time are, in their different ways, a unique and fabulous addition to the Midlands restaurant scene – long may it continue.”

Michelin-starred Purnell’s, in Birmingham’s Cornwall Street, made it into the Guide’s top 50 restaurants, rated 38th.

This summer Turners in Harborne won a public poll to be crowned the Midlands Good Food Guide Readers’ Restaurant of the Year.
