Support Birmingham Independents! 

As 4th July approaches and restaurants and bars begin to re-open remember to support your favourite local independents that got you through the lockdown. It's been a hard few months for independent businesses, but they bounced back, brightening our spirits and ensuring our bellies were full of delicious food.

Throughout the past four months, we've watched as independents have adapted their menus, developed delivery services, got creative with at-home dining and made sure we don't miss out on our favourite dishes. Enjoying their food from the safety of our own home, they've worked day in, day out to provide us with joy and some normality. 

As Birmingham begins to slowly re-open, smiling faces start filling up bars and restaurants, friends start to re-unite and the luxury of eating out resumes, remember those independents that brought us together.


Brindleyplace is a stunning spot for you to enjoy your first meal out and about, with its tree-lined squares, International cuisine & an enviable canalside location. It's the perfect place to dine out when the sun is shining, with many independents here having outside seating areas. From contemporary dining at Bank, revolutionary dining at Craft, and Thai food and cocktails at Siamais, there's something for everyone!

The Mailbox

The Mailbox is an iconic Birmingham location, where you can drink and dine in style! Perfect for a rainy day or a night out with the girls, The Mailbox is home to some fabulous independents. Enjoy one of Aluna's mesmerising cocktails, experience Gas Street Social, inspired by Birmingham's rich history, or immerse yourself in the bustling streets of India at Indico Street Kitchen.


The Jewellery Quarter

The Jewellery Quarter is full of many hidden gems and up and coming independents in Birmingham. If you feel like trying somewhere new and exploring Birmingham further, why not head to Saint Paul's House in the heart of The Jewellery Quarter, who do a delicious bottomless brunch every weekend. You can also check out Lasan who serve exquisite food that's true to India.

China Town

Located just five minutes from New Street Station, you'll find China Town, full of local Chinese businesses and culture. In the heart of China Town you'll find Chung Ying, one of the city's most well known and loved restaurants offering an expansive menu full of all the favourites, from exotic cuts to fresh seas food.

Business District & Grand Central

The independents don't stop there though. Colmore Row is home to some mouthwatering restaurants, such as Gino D'Acampo's. Grand Central is also a great place for some quick dinning whilst you shop, like the elegant Fumo in Selfridges, or if you're feeling fancy pop by Purnell's, a Michelin Star restaurant that offers chic and contemporary fine dining. There are so many delicious independents to support and enjoy in Birmingham, so go get exploring! Remember to stay safe, be kind, and enjoy independent.
