From gorgeous wreaths and fairy lights to snow-like installations, here's our guide to the most Instagrammable Christmas restaurants in Birmingham.
The Ivy Temple Row
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.
The Lost & Found
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.
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 transforms into a snowy cloud, dangling with white baubles and crystal ornaments. It's a magical setting for diving into upmarket Chinese chow.
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.
Noel's Bar and Restaurant
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.
