My Great Grandfather

Opening Times


About Us

My Great Grandfathers Restaurant Was acquired in 2004 by Mathew & Shiho Gabb and their daughter Aimi.

The name for the restaurant was given in honour of Mathews Granddad and Aimis Great Grandfather Mr Ernest Ellery Clayton who passed away on January 18th 1997

Ellery Worked at the local Bakery/ Grocers In Tirley village near Tewkesbury and his approved handmade bread recipes are still used In our restaurant today.

Our flour for homemade bread making is locally milled organic flour from Shipton Mill in the Cotswolds.

At My Great Grandfathers we only use the freshness ingredients whenever possible and always try to support local and British Produce
Chef & Owner Mat Gabb always looks for the finest ingredients and travels early mornings to wholesale markets to ensure we have the freshest fish and vegetables the season has to offer. At My great Grandfathers we try to contact and deal with the main producers of foods to ensure premium quality. This gives our restaurant a unique advantage to its knowledge and the use of our ingredients.

Our English beef is hung for a minimum of 5 weeks to give it a unique tenderness for our dry aged steaks which feature on our Ala Carte Menu. The Beef itself is always produced in the UK and has never been vacuum packed or processed in anyway. Come and taste the difference

Shiho was born and raised in Japan so has been influenced by the importance of fresh fish. At My Great Grandfathers Restaurant we have travelled to meet the fishermen who supply our fish to Birmingham Wholesale market. Our Fish as we have witnessed is caught and brought to land at Looe in Cornwall and delivered to Birmingham Wholesale Market where a vast cornucopia of seafood is available to us. We currently purchase fresh lobsters and crabs for our very popular Thai fishcakes and Our Chunky Cod is always succulent and juicy.

In our quest for excellence of service to our customers we have recently been invited to become a member of Les Routiers Guide.

The strong brand association and loyalty to the famous blue and red Les Routiers emblem both in the UK and on the continent has been built up over several decades and is widely recognised as representing quality and value while maintaining the traditions of excellent hospitality and service. In the UK today, the emblem continues to signify to travellers that a warm welcome awaits and that standards are reassuringly good.

My Great Grandfathers would like to thank all of its customers for all the nominations and fantastic heart felt testimonials with regard to The Good Food Guide Readers Restaurant of the year award. We are still in with a chance so please go online to nominate us or come into the restaurant for a testimonial postcard.
