Where to eat great pizza in Birmingham


Ramblings, restaurants

Let’s kick this off in the same rational way I approach most things in life: I’m a firm believer that if you don’t like pizza there must be something seriously wrong with you. I’m not kidding. If carbs and cheese can’t make you happy then we have nothing in common. Pizza is great to eat […]

Pizza and Prosecco Festival @ Boxxed, Floodgate Street


Events, Pop ups

If there are two things I associate with my good pal and former bridesmaid Nic, it’s booze and pizza. Having known her since freshers week, approximately 2749 years ago, we bonded over our love for rubbish boys, getting legless and eating far too much. A lot has changed since our first encounter in 2003 (we […]

Pasta and pizza @ Mi Amore, Fleet Street


restaurants, Review

We don’t have a lot of Italian restaurants in Birmingham city centre. Actually, that’s not true – we have an abundance of them. What we don’t have is many good Italian restaurants. I’ve lived in and around the city centre for over 12 years now, and it’s only in the last year or so I’ve […]

Hidden pizza joy @ OTTO, Jewellery Quarter


restaurants, Review

One December night not so long ago, during a particularly vicious bout of hangryitis, I found myself eating pizza at OTTO. Coming across this little pizzeria was a complete accident, fuelled largely by a mutual desire to get out of the winter rain and my inability to go more than two hours without food. Situated […]

Potter and pizza @ Spotlight


Bars & Pubs, Pop ups, Ramblings

Did you ever hear about the girl that was bullied into dressing as Dobby – full makeup, the works – for her hen do? Of course you did, because it was me, and I’m not exactly known for keeping quiet. Despite still having the occasional nightmare about being paraded around Brighton in a potato sack […]
