We’ve no idea if he’s got as hearty a laugh a Rustie Lee, but he’s certainly popular. Nick Drew:

“How many other Brummies won the AA National Restaurant of the Year AND made Tim Lovejoy look stupid on national TV in 2009? Answer: none. The man’s a legend.”

& Birmingham Post Editor Marc Reeves:

“He may be a bluenose, but no-one else serves up a haddock foam poached egg with curry oil like his.”

  • Glyn (single “n” surely?) gets my vote. I ate at his gaff a couple of years ago and it was tremendous. Unlike most celebrity chefs he seems to be fairly humble and actually cooks at his restaurant instead of delegating it all to his assistants. rnrnSure, the Brum food scene is a million times better than it was a few years ago but Glyn is the only really local lad who’s made the big time and made a success of it, rather than being an existing “brand” setting up in Brum. We need more like him making the big time!
