This place had been selected by our son for his celebration meal following his graduation ceremony at the Symphony Hall. Staff were very helpful and welcoming and the food was great.

This has become my boyfriend's favourite steakhouse in Birmingham; great food, really friendly service at a fair price. We definitely ordered too much for two - sharer platter plus a steak each and side each meant that we were stuffed! Really nice eating out experience, busy and fun environment - would recommend for a couple or group of friends.

First time in Birmingham and really just walked off the street, fantastic welcome, great service from the bar and the waiter staff. Had the steak for 2 and it was absolutely beautiful, the half lobster to the side was the icing on the cake. Place became busy and the service levels did not drop off. Consider what we paid including... More

The place itself was lively and full but we were more than happy to wait until a table became available. We took the chance to have... More

Me and my Wife have been to M&C in Penn, Wolverhampton before and that has never let us down so we had high expectations. We opted this time for the Mailbox branch because of the surrounding bars. We went at about 1830 on a busy Saturday evening and were pleased when we were told it would only be an hours... More
