The festival is a celebration of the fantastic restaurants across Birmingham, and each year participating restaurants create an exclusive, great value, dinner menu, with some also offering a lunch menu.

“From Indian street food and independents serving the best of British produce, to contemporary Chinese cuisine and Michelin-starred restaurants, Birmingham Restaurant Festival truly captures the cultural diversity of the city and its culinary landscape. We’d encourage everyone to use the Festival as an excuse to try a restaurant they’ve never visited before and explore the city.”
