In the words of Slade... It's CHRIIIIIISTMAS. So it's time to shower your friends with gifts, enjoy lots of yuletide partying and tuck into festive feasts aplenty. But if you're not after any old place to eat, we've got a whole load of eye-catching spots that even Santa would be proud of. From gorgeous wreaths and fairy lights to snow-like installations, here's our guide to the most Instagrammable Christmas restaurants in Birmingham.
Let’s be honest, if you’re looking for an Instagrammable restaurant in Birmingham, The Ivy Temple Row is going to be at the top of the list. While always an absolute stunner, when Christmas rolls around, it decks the halls with ginormous baubles, entwined ivy and themed sculptures. It’s the perfect place to settle in and devour elevated comfort food, such as goose and turkey shepherd’s pie.
Keeping it classy throughout the festive season, The Lost & Found in the city centre is spreading yuletide cheer by the bucketload. Not only will there be a gorgeous centrepiece tree, adorned with glowing fairy lights and glamourous decorations, but also hanging ivy and lots of Instagrammable Christmas cocktails. Head over for sumptuous three-course dinners and quirky quaffs.
For Instagrammable restaurants in Birmingham this Christmas, we recommend heading to The Canal House for a wintry pergola. Situated in the city centre, the venue will be decked out with string lights, dimly-lit candles and plush blankets galore. Chow down on the likes of turkey kebabs while enjoying this cosy pop-up, and if you want more, the waterside retreat will be hosting a Crimbo quiz night and bauble-filled lunch.
Located on Temple Street, The Botanist is up there as one of the most Instagrammable Christmas restaurants in Birmingham city centre. Every year, it takes on a festive theme, featuring twinkling lights and glittery baubles. And, of course, you can’t miss the huge statement tree, glowing like the North Star itself. We can't think of a better place to chomp on delish delights this December.
Nestled in the Grade II-listed Grand Hotel, this stunning space is spellbinding us with its unique look. And when the yuletide season rolls around? Tattu is one of the most beautiful Christmas restaurants in Birmingham going. Its usual pink blossom canopy has transformed into icy blue frosted branches dusted with sparkles. It's a magical setting for diving into upmarket Chinese chow.
It’s all in the name, isn’t it? Noel’s Bar and Restaurant over by the canal is a real treat for the eyes. When Christmas comes a-knockin’, this joint brings out the luxe decorations; think pretty-in-pink interiors, mistletoe, glitter and warm lighting, with a couple of rose-tinted nutcracker ornaments thrown in too. Snap up a spot to get stuck into mouthwatering Mediterranean munch and seasonal sips.
