The vibrancy and varied culture of Birmingham has long contributed to a thriving restaurant scene — with around 200 venues serving up dishes from 20 different regions — but the culinary credibility of the city is now even greater than ever thanks to the approval of respected eating out guide.
The ever-popular Good Food Guide, which highlights the best eateries from across the UK, now features a healthy total of 11 spots from Birmingham — three of which are new restaurants that have managed to make the grade for this prestigious guide at the first attempt (the restaurants in question being Edmunds, Joyoti’s Vegetarian and Turners).
And to further reinforce the city’s growing reputation for quality dining spots, celebrity chef Glynn Purnell’s restaurant has been named in the top 50 nationally — and is the highest placed Midlands eatery.
The honor of getting 11 restaurants into the guide is yet another thumbs up for the city, who started the year with three Michelin-starred establishments. All this points to a city that is a must-visit area for food lovers everywhere.
The presence of world-renowned ballet company and a symphony orchestra make this a great destination for culture vultures, while the presence of Premier League football in the form of Aston Villa and Birmingham City make it popular with sports fans.
So when you combine the choice of food to the many sporting and artistic attractions in and around Birmingham, it becomes an ideal spot for a short UK break with a difference.
Want to see how? Just Google your restaurant or cuisine type with your city’s name and see the results that come up on the first page. If you see a bunch of options minus your restaurant, then your competitors are having a field day simply because your place is not advertised enough. In these days many customers rely on internet and online reviews to choose a diner’s to hang out. The age-old mantra in real estate and business is ‘Location Location Location’ and it hasn’t changed since.
As you can see, most hotels and bistros are always centered in prime locales of the city. Nowadays the advantage of having a web presence, whether small hotel or large, is common knowledge. Creating a website for the restaurant is easy, cost-effective and almost-free advertisement. But having crispy clear content with catchy captions and tag-lines is equally important.
