Discover the best food and drink experiences

Top restaurants give special treatment to members of Birmingham’s new digital dining and events club.

 

We've just launched our new club for food and drink lovers, offering over 50 exclusive member privileges at quality restaurants, bars and cafes across Birmingham!

How it works

The DineHub app uses mobile technology to help you discover the best food and drink in your local area, with an individually personalised newsfeed, events calendar and venue guide.

You can search a carefully curated menu of 250 recommended restaurants, bars and cafes to find inspiration, browse menus, plan visits and make bookings, for free.

If you choose to upgrade to member status (£29.99 per year) you're treated to a suite of exclusive privileges ranging from complimentary dessert and welcome cocktails, to extra courses and secret off-menu items.

Members also gain access to popular food and drink events at reduced price or free entry. Every restaurant visit earns them points, which they can spend on tickets to events including Birmingham Wine Weekend and Birmingham Rum Festival.

And there's more... An in-app video channel is regularly updated with episodes offering behind-the-scenes access to Birmingham’s chefs, mixologists and restaurant kitchens.

Which venues are on board?

Venues offering privileges include high-end restaurants such as Lasan, Purnell’s Bistro and Tom’s Kitchen, as well as casual independent spots like The Indian Brewery (above), Damascena, Amantia and Zindiya.

While many city centre favourites like Hotel du Vin are on board, the suburbs are also strongly represented. Harborne foodie pub The Plough, Kings Heath gem Byzantium and Edgbaston’s El Borracho de Oro are all offering special perks.

The list includes partners in Sutton Coldfield, Shirley and Solihull, with Caffe Botanico and Indico Street Kitchen among venues confirmed in these areas. 

The crop also features exciting newer openings like plant-based fast food outlet Fressh and Moseley’s upmarket Dessert Lab.

Bars offering privileges to DineHub members include boutique gin bar 40 St Paul’s, and new addition The Birmingham Whisky Club.

And specialist artisan shops and delis in the partnership include All Greek Deli, Sapori di Sole Italian delicatessen and 1683 Chocolate Place in Knowle.

The full list of venues and details of the 50+ member privileges offered is available to preview within the app.

Who's behind it?

This a brand new step for yours truly. The launch follows the growth of our team in 2017, with the arrival of new Technical Director Daniel Simm, and Content and Social Media editor Niamh Carpenter.

Formerly known as Dine Birmingham, we changed our name to DineHub after 60% of you chose the name for us in a survey last year. However, we remain 100% committed to Birmingham and its amazing food and drink scene.

Our company was born in Moseley and now lives at Innovation Birmingham in Aston.

Founder Ahmed Ahmed said:

“We are so excited to bring this to the table, after many months of planning and preparation. DineHub is something new - a digital club for real foodies with a passion for eating out, exploring events and discovering local food stories, all in the palm of your hand.

“Best of all, we’re working with some of the city’s most iconic venues, as well as many hidden independent gems who deserve to be shouted about. Our aim is to highlight the great work they’re doing and support them, while making our members feel like VIPs whenever they visit.”
