January deals for restaurants in Birmingham city centre

Hands up who overspent at Christmas and is now far from flush this month.. yup, I hear you.

From the moment I woke up at 7am the sun was shining and Birmingham, once again, managed to look like one of the most beautiful cities in the UK. I decided to get outside and enjoy… Continue reading A trip to Brindleyplace Summer Market
