Description: The perfect place to start your visit to the theatre. Our stylish Circle Restaurant, located just a short walk from your seats off the Middle Circle Foyer, offers a relaxing dining experience with tempting, modern menus and an extensive wine list. Our menus are adapted for each show and take advantage of seasonal produce. Wherever possible, we source from local suppliers; this helps us to achieve our aims of supporting the regional economy and to protect the environment by reducing food miles.

You can either rush to the theatre, grab a drink in crowded bar, order interval refreshments & struggle to find them or..........
Try the Circle restaurant - arrive at 5-30, enjoy a relaxed meal & the table remains yours for the interval - really adds value to the evening!
Our most recent meal was excellent - presentation,taste & service rivalling the best pre-theatre experiences in the UK (read my last London review).

To be honest I wasn't enthralled at the menu at first glance but the food was excellent. My wifes lamb was the best she had ever had (which is a huge call).

My gnocci was really nice dunno what they did to the olives and vine tomatoes where something else.

Service was marvellous, we got the romantic box experience can highly recommend! Had a really top night.

We often enjoy a show at Birmingham’s Hippodrome, and to make a good night out that bit special we frequently have a meal at the Circle Restaurant.
The environment is good, although we have known it to be a little on the chilly side; this time we were aware that the restaurant is in fact a balcony over the foyer and there were a number of school parties seeing the show, this made it somewhat on the noisy side (50+ teenagers engaged in a shouting competition).
Be that as it may, the service, as always, was excellent and the waiters were most attentive, in spite of the fact that there is pressure to get everyone through well before curtain up.
The food is always perfect and there is a good choice from the menu, perhaps changing the menu more frequently may give regular diners/theatre-goers a bit more choice.
It’s great that you can keep your table for the interval and enjoy a quiet drink, coffee or even desert.
We’d recommend anyone who enjoys a night out at the Hippodrome to splash out on a meal there as well.

Popped in for a quick lunch before the afternoon pantomime performance on the 10th January, we both had the pork selection from an excellent menu, that was cooked perfect. My main reason for posting this review is to congratulate the two young waitresses who served us, they were excellent and might I say both went above and beyond the call of duty. Really nice young ladies, and the meal wasnt bad either.
