The Birmingham food and drinks scene is not getting any quieter, so read on to find out what should be on your radar this Autumn!
Upstairs at the Plough, Harborne.
Already incredibly popular, The Plough in Harborne have now announced they are expanding! ‘Upstairs at the Plough’ is launching this November and will be home to two new private dining and meeting rooms boasting wi-fi, large flat screen TV screens and private audio systems. Excitingly for food and drink lovers, the renovation will see a new bar dedicated to showcasing The Ploughs selection of award winning whiskies and craft beers, a new pizza kitchen and coffee bar.
In a prime location on the canal opposite The Cube is a brand new Indian restaurant, Vivaanta, specialising in spicy sea food. This fine dining restaurant will offer sea bass, monk fish, swordfish, and lobster, as well as favourites such as salmon and king prawns for those looking for a more traditional Indian experience. In my opinion, great restaurants can only get better if they also serve cocktails, and at Vivaanta you can sip on your favourite classic or a more original concoction, such as their ‘late breakfast’.
Birmingham Independent Food Fair
This year the Birmingham Independent Food Fair is back and bigger than ever. A must on any Brummie foodie’s calendar, the independent food fair is a chance for independent chefs, venues, producers and street food vendors to showcase their culinary delights. If you know anybody who thinks Birmingham can only offer a plethora of giant chains, bring them along on September 12th or 13th to seriously prove them wrong! Tickets can be bought here and include a range of prices for anyone and everyone.
