A Birmingham restaurant has claimed a place as one of the top 10 restaurants around the world.

Serving modern British cuisine, Adam’s already holds 1 Michelin star and 3 AA rosettes and took 10th spot in the Travellers’ Choice Favourite Fine Dining Restaurants Worldwide, as well as 1st place in the Travellers’ Choice Favourite Fine Dining Restaurants UK (the second time the restaurant has held this position).

Announced by the world’s largest travel platform, TripAdvisor, the impressive accolade is testament to the work of husband and wife team Adam and Natasha Stokes.

Commenting, Adam Stokes, owner of Adam’s said: ‘We are absolutely thrilled to be awarded number one in the UK and 10th in the world in the Travellers’ Choice Awards for Fine Dining Restaurants. This is our sixth proud year of being included in these customer focused awards and it is a huge achievement.

I am immensely proud of our whole team AKA the ‘Adam’s family’. With special credit to our Service Manager Shaun who has been with Adam’s since day one and really embodies all that the ‘Adam’s family’ is about.’

Having come such a long way, since starting a pop-up seven years ago, and with the guest’s experience at the heart of everything, we are excited as to where this will take us in the future. Thank you also to all our guests, old and new and those regulars we see time and time again.’
