Best of Birmingham

Smallbone and Son is the oldest car garage in Birmingham, so we like to think we know a little about our city. It’s full of hidden gems and amazing food so we wanted to share our favourites with you. Check them out below and let us know what your favourites are too!

Burning Soul Brewing

Local craft beer brewery and taproom, you will have seen their brews popping up around the city and the taproom is open on Fridays and Saturdays. As well as best-sellers, you will also discover pilot brews so you can help select the beers of the future, pretty cool if you ask us.


The perfect fusion between Indian cuisine and street food. This restaurant is great whether you’re after a light bite or a full-blown dinner. Colourful furniture decorates the room and the street food will have you returning time and time again. We promise!

The Meat Shack

Home of the dirty burger, The Meat Shack is everything you need. Toppings range from bacon through to blue cheese and with a whole host of sides to choose from, you will be totally spoilt for choice. Check out the specials too!

Fiesta Del Asado

Did someone say 40oz steaks? You’ll find them here along with cuts of beef, sausages, prawns and chicken wings to name a few. Satisfy your meat cravings in one place, it’s a great place to gather your friends for a catch up or just for a date night!

The Vanguard

This gem is tucked away above 1000 trades and is home to cocktails and mead. It’s the sort of place where you want to try everything once, leaving your comfort zone at the door. Settle in for the evening and sip on a cocktail or two.
