Wing It Monday and 3 other offers

Not only is its food menu hangover heaven – serving up wonderfully American and pub grub food – the whole interior solidifies it as a quirky Birmingham restaurant. The Rose Villa Tavern sits within a Grade II-listed building, and is decked out with rich leather chairs, antler chandeliers, a Dr Who-esque phone box and charismatic tilework. If you want food delivered with a bit of quirk, you know where to go.

The Original Patty Men

The Original Patty Men don't serve up your grandma's burgers: they're big, messy and are self-professed 'Purveyors of Filth'. These former street food champions have settled down in Digbeth, offering some of the tastiest, juiciest burgers in Birmingham, all while serving them up in a cool, minimalist wooden setting.
