Read time: approx 1 mins

Brad Carter, University College Birmingham graduate and Michelin-starred chef, has had his restaurant named as one of the best in the UK - in not one, but two national lists.

Carters of Moseley, helmed by the former Culinary Arts Management student, is in the top 100 restaurants list compiled by Restaurant magazine and has also nabbed the No 1 Fit For Foodies award by OpenTable reviewers.

In Restaurant magazine's prestigious National Restaurant Awards top 100, Carters is the only Birmingham eatery to be included - for the second year running.

Editor Stefan Chomka said: “Brad Carter is one of the leading lights of Birmingham’s food scene with his creative and meticulously-run establishment.

"The fact this is happening in Moseley – a quiet suburb of Birmingham – shows just how far British cuisine has come.

“Part of a new generation of young, ambitious chefs that are pushing the boundaries of what British food can be, Brad Carter goes deeper than most into exploring the idea of terroir in cooking."

Reservation and review site OpenTable has also awarded Carters of Moseley the top spot in its Fit For Foodies top 50 thanks to “its focus on seasonal, ingredient-led cooking”.

Adrian Valeriano, Vice President of OpenTable Europe, said: "We’re extremely excited to share this Fit for Foodies list based on verified reviews and to see the list become even more representative of the whole of the UK foodie scene as we see more ambitious restaurants open outside of London.”

Watch Brad talking about his experience of studying at UCB and how his training paved the way for success and a Michelin star.
