Great Place...

A friend of mine recommended this place because it's in a quiet side street in the middle of Birmingham's famous Jewellery Quarter. The place has a good vibe and friendly staff. The only thing I didn't like was that it was darkly lit.

We visited after choosing an engagement ring for my fiancée. Decor is excellent and the food even better. Great spot, great food and great service. Thoroughly recommended.

We had a wonderful evening, the staff could not have been more helpful. The food itself was Fantastic, especially considering there was 25 of us. They really looked after the kids too - Nothing was too much trouble! I really can't recommend this place enough - Simply a great party venue

My partner and I visited this restaurant last weekend. We both said how lovely it was inside and on the roof terrace. We ordered a 3 course meal, from a very friendly waitress who looked after us for the duration of our meal. We ordered mackerel pate and hummus and flat bread starters, it was nice but not WOW. Our... More

Really nice building. Good beer and friendly service. The menu did't really inspire so I just ordered a burger. Food however was just ok: not bad but not amazing. It's certainly not as good as it was 3 or 4 years ago. Would definitely pop back for a beer but there are so many choices in Bham door food I'd... More

Went here after it was recommended to us. Whilst browsing in the jewellery quarter, we went for Sunday lunch. We arrived and were one of the first for lunch. The building and decor is unique and I could imagine social drinks here to be good. However, I wasn't impressed with the food or service. Service was slow considering we were... More

We thought we we would check out the Jewellery Quarter and asked our taxi driver to recommend somewhere for lunch. He made a good choice.  The name gives a clue that this is a converted industrial premises so expect plenty of exposed brick. It is a bright and airy space largely staffed by young people. The menu is quirky but... More

Went for a treat with my partnet and shared a few tapas plates. The prawns and chorizo were faves but everything was yummy and the venue has some lovely outside space on the roof so will be great in summer time. Not very busy when we visited so were served quickly and staff were pleasant.

They penciled us in for a wedding meal and contacted us on a couple of occasions to sort out finer details. A month or so later, the Manager phoned to say that another couple taken our place for the following reasons: they were bringing more guests; they paid the deposit straight away. Prior to this, we had no idea there... More
