Andy Waters to open new Edgbaston restaurant

Midlands chef Andy Waters is to open his new restaurant, Waters on the Square, with Black Country entrepreneurs Jim and Adam Driscoll this autumn.

The new site is in Chad Square on the border of Edgbaston. It will open in the building formerly known as Italian restaurant Pinnochio's. The new 35-cover restaurant will serve modern British cuisine in a relaxed and friendly setting.

Waters won a Michelin star at his restaurant Edmunds in Birmingham in 2003 but left it last year to go into partnership with the Driscolls at Belbroughton pub The Queens.

Gareth Ward, 32, who has worked for Waters for 12 and half years, will be head chef of the new restaurant, assisted by Will Tranter.

Commenting Waters said: "I always said I would return to Birmingham, it is the place to be as it has such a diverse culinary scene.

Waters, who will be chef patron of Waters on the Square, will continue to run The Queens at Belbroughton.
