Eat and drink

With Birmingham’s growing reputation for decent cuisine, locals aren’t short of eating choices around this area of the city. So it’s a mark of our quality that so many chose to eat in the Hallmark Hotel Birmingham Strathallan’s brasserie with its light elegant contemporary décor and relaxed yet professional service.

They come for a kitchen that turns the finest seasonal produce into a versatile menu offering grills, pastas, seafood and vegetarian options to suit every palate. You’ll find the likes of spiced lamb tagine, pan fried seabass fillet, Teriyaki salmon and mushroom ravioli, alongside beer battered local fish and chips, Kansas style bbq glazed spare ribs, 10oz ribeye steaks and our signature burgers. If you’ve any room left, you can try our refreshing lemon tart with clotted cream or our banana split sundae with sticky toffee fudge ice cream and whipped cream.

Small wonder it’s a popular spot for meeting up after work, or following a day’s sightseeing or shopping. And if you fancy something slightly less substantial, there are lighter bites in our lounge.
