Afternoon tea @ Hotel du Vin, Church Street


Hotels, Review

It’s no secret that one of my favourite foodie spots in the city is Hotel du Vin on Church Street. Way before starting this food blog I used to spend my time enjoying drinks in the bar, and over the last couple of years I have grown fond of the restaurant. While it’s become somewhere […]

Weekend tapas @ El Borracho de Oro, Edgbaston


restaurants, Review

Don’t tell owner Emma, but I’ve secretly moved in to El Borracho de Oro. The floor isn’t that comfortable but the food is worth the bad back. I seem to spend more time at the Edgbaston restaurant than my own home, but it’s hard to stay away from a place oozing charm and knocking out […]

Beers and bar snacks @ Kilder, Digbeth

From the brains behind Original Patty Men, Kilder is a beer, cider and natural wine bar serving up some knock out food and booze under a railway arch.

Tapas and small plates @ Rico Libre, Digbeth


restaurants, Review

Recently I spent an evening at Rico Libre in Digbeth with some good friends. We laughed and gossiped, ate far too much and polished off a decent amount of wine for four women who all had work the next day. The coming together of friends over food is one of the reasons I enjoy tapas […]

Spring Market Cheese Festival @ The Bond, Digbeth


Events, Pop ups

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned it before but I like cheese. I like cheese in all its glorious forms: melted, baked, sliced, diced. Whatever, if it involves fromage I want a slice. With that in mind, it was a given I’d end up at the Spring Market Cheese Festival at The Bond this weekend, […]

Smart weekend brunch @ Gusto, Colmore Row


restaurants, Review

I’ve had mixed experiences dining at Gusto, I have to admit. Thankfully my visit last month for brunch was a really positive affair and has reaffirmed my fondness for the place. Having launched a weekend brunch menu, the popular Colmore Row restaurant is having a busy few months. As well as Birmingham Wine Weekend in […]

Bottomless brunch @ Lost and Found


Bars & Pubs, Review

I’ve always had a soft spot for Lost and Found and this new-look version is top banana. Lost and Found on Bennetts Hill officially reopens Friday March 2nd, but last week some friends and I checked out the newly renovated bar to try the updated bottomless brunch. It’s a hard life.. no really it is, […]

A weekend in Krakow, Poland


BYB Travels

Being honest, I don’t really post much about the world outside of Birmingham (this blog is called Bite Your Brum after all) but I’ve just had such a mega weekend in Krakow that I wanted to share a bit about the foodie side of the trip. Being that so many of you gave me must […]
