A hidden gem

Once you’ve dined with us, you’ll know why we are often referred to as ‘a hidden gem’.

A combination of British and internationally-inspired gastro and classical fine dining, our exceptional food and drink has the feel of a Michelin star, but we are a training ground for the next generations, so it doesn’t cost the Earth to dine with us.

Five-star reviews

We are fiercely passionate about food and drink and our AA Highly Commended College Rosette and five-star reviews on Tripadvisor speak volumes. Tables are like gold dust. Discover this well-kept secret for yourself.

We were named Tripadvisor Traveller’s Choice 2023 placing our restaurant in the top 10% worldwide.

Feast your eyes on our menus

We offer an à la carte lunch with set menu available and a classical fine dining dinner menu, all hand-crafted using high quality, seasonal ingredients. Each are globally and regionally-inspired and demonstrate our students’ skill in everything from fishmongery and butchery to exquisite pâtisserie and wine-pairing.

Training the next generation

Take us home with you

From delicious artisan breads to mouth-watering cakes, you can even take a slice of Restaurant at Birmingham College of Food home with you.
