If you decide to spend some time seeing a bit of Birmingham, this is a great site for local independent places:
This zine (Brum secrets, below) was made by Ellie Munro, a researcher at University of Birmingham, and has loads of tips for good restaurants, cafes, pubs, and art and culture in the city – it’s definitely worth checking out!
Some of my favourites include:
Cherry Red’s (craft beer and good vegan options)
Faculty (great coffee and just opposite New Street station, in the lovely Piccadilly arcade)
Cafe Artum (cafe, records, and art)
Kilder (craft beer and cider, natural wines, and locally cured meats and cheese)
The Karczma (Polish restaurant with a great interior!)
Purecraft Bar and Kitchen (craft beers and close to Premier Inn Waterloo St if you’re staying there)
Pint Shop Birmingham new craft beer place, food is supposed to be really good too – on my list to try!
