Purnell’s | British Cuisine
It’s not fair to call Purnell’s second on our list seeing as Purnell’s and Adam’s have both been awarded their Michelin stars, Purnell’s earning theirs back in January 2009. Purnell’s is ranked number 8 according to Trip Advisor, yet they have a Michelin star award so they deserve to be right at the top of our list. If you’re close to Colmore Row or St Phillips Cathedral, you will find Purnell’s within meters of these two places. The restaurant decided on the given name by calling it after the Michelin star Birmingham chef himself, Glynn Purnell, he who set up Purnell’s back in July 2007. Purnell’s gives a really special feel to every individual that dines here, besides the fact that it’s a very popular and lusted over restaurant. The outside layout and feel of Purnell’s consists of Victorian redbrick and terracotta based on a corner building, providing large bay windows on both sides of the window providing a nice amount of natural light throughout the day. The inside interior is spacious and Purnell’s has it’s own bar lounge area – exclusive to diners only, where a pre-dinner cocktail or after dinner coffee can be enjoyed within the comfortable seating areas. The Private dining room caters to parties of 7-12 diners and with prior contact, the restaurant can be available for complete hire if parties were to be of a large size. So if you are in Birmingham or are in the area and you are after the ultimate gourmet adventure, maybe you’re also after a Michelin star awarded restaurant, we couldn’t recommend a better place that fits your description.

Mortons’ Kitchen, Bar and Deli is a newly built, refreshing diner based in the heart of Solihul. With the building being newly built, it has enabled a specific design which enhances relaxed drinking and dining in a widespread space lit with mostly natural lighting.

The Warehouse Cafe | British, Vegan, Vegetarian, Contemporary Cuisine
The Warehouse Cafe specializes for the Vegetarians and Vegans, which is greatly appreciated seeing as more and more restaurants are now catering to these dietary requirements. Placed in a cost situated in the upstairs part of the building, The Warehouse Cafe like to please even the meat eaters. Vegetarians and Vegan eaters shouldn’t feel privileged when they find a cafe which only specializes in vegetarian dishes, because all pubs and restaurants should offer something appetising for none-meat-eaters. However people are usually limited in most restaurants with the same dishes, especially when they are dining with meat eaters and none vegans. Therefore If you’re close by, send your love for everything green to the Warehouse Cafe. Their dishes offer a wide range of variety, meaning you may even find your new main favorite or you’ll choose your current favorite meal but have someone to cook it for you! Even though this cafe in particular is vegetarian food based, meat-eaters are most welcome and according to Trip Advisor, meat eaters love the food there as much as the vegetarian eaters which is a true sign of delicious, organic and damn good, fresh food!
Rico Libre | International, Spanish, Tapas, Contemporary Cuisine
There is something about the Brits and their love for Spanish food, and we can’t knock it because let’s face it, who doesn’t love a good tapas!? For all of the tapas lover’s make sure you eat out at Rico Libre if you’re in the area. Set in the Industrial part of Birmingham stands a cafe-style restaurant that will definitely exceed your expectations. According to Trip Advisor, previous customers have stated not to judge the place by it’s front and area (that being the industrial part). It’s important that previous customers have stated where it’s situated, especially for potentially new customers because it isn’t stated on the high street meaning for anybody, it’s kind of hard what to expect these days seeing as more and more restaurants are moving to the high street where they can offer the wow factor with interior and location. However, Rico Libre obviously is a winner in Birmingham and has truly proven that despite their setback in location, they provide the greatest Spanish food you could get your hands on in the West Midlands. So if you’re not jetting off to Spain this year, make a point of visiting Rico Libre where even though it may be raining outside, your taste buds will back in your tapas restaurant abroad.
