Birmingham's new food and drink venue, The Canal House, to open in August


If you love The Botanist, you will love the next move of The New World Trading Company (NWTC). Today, they announced that their second Birmingham site, The Canal House, will launch in August 2017.

The Canal House is an all-new brand for NWTC. It's the sixth brand in their portfolio, so it will be nothing less than bespoke and totally exclusive to Birmingham, inspired by the late famous engineer, James Brindley.

You'll be able to find it in Brindley Place at the former James Brindley pub on Bridge Street. Aptly based, the 21st Century establishment is believed to honour the life, work and spirit of the 18th Century icon.

There will be Brindley’s brew room to relax in as well as a study, lounge and drawing room to name just a few. The cocktail menu will give you plenty of delicious options for a great Friday night, as it did for James Brindley himself.

The pub will boast over 60 unique world ales. That's as well as the Budvar’s unique unpasteurised full-flavour tank beer ‘Tankové Pivo’, that’s matured for 90 days. That means the beer is fresh because it's delivered in temperature controlled, airtight tanks.

Aside from serving a fantastic range of well-kept ales, the Canal House will serve a wide variety of good ol' grub. It will include meat as well as a deli section.

General Manager, Liam Carney said,

“Following the success of The Botanist, we’re really excited to launch The Canal House in Birmingham this August. By delving into Birmingham's rich history and heritage, we’ve created a fantastic concept that we are confident locals will enjoy the story of.

"Not only will this new venue have two floors and an outdoor seating area, but there will also be a secret gin distillery that will sit at the back of the first floor bar, but we can’t talk about that of course!”

If you're looking for work, The Canal House opening is set out to provide 80 new employment opportunities for Birmingham’s growing food and drink scene. From front of house opportunities to kitchen and bar staff, NWTC have said they will ensure that "all staff are trained thoroughly to provide the best customer service".

The Canal House will officially open their doors to the general public on 14th August 2017.
