I’m Emily, a  graduate of the University of Birmingham.

Welcome to my Birmingham based food and cocktails blog, where you can find reviews of local restaurants, bars and cafes, events, the odd recipe, and anything else food/drink related that I think you guys would like to know about!

I don’t claim to be a culinary genius and neither can I afford to frequent Michelin star restaurants (one day, one day…), but I do love eating out and appreciate good grub so why not have a read around?

Please note that Good Girl Gone Brum used to also cover a ton of other lifestyle topics before I decided to pursue my love of food. These old posts haven’t been deleted, so if you fancy a scroll through the archives to discover advice on university, fitness and Birmingham then feel free!

    Hi Emily! I found your blog last night when Urban Coffee retweeted your call for blogs to read! I studied for a master’s (in social media) at Birmingham City University (2011) so even though we’re miles apart (Selly Oak and Perry Barr), we both share a love for the city!

    I hope you have a fabulous time, and welcome to the wonderful world called blogging!
