The Canal House


Located in the heart of Birmingham, The Canal House is a short walk from New Street Station, Broad Street or Symphony Hall. This extensive venue is split across two floors, each with its own bar and dining areas, and boasts one of the best beer gardens in the city centre (as voted in 2019).

With multiple private dining rooms throughout, this is the perfect setting for any special occasion. The deliciously casual menu is designed with you in mind, so you can feel like you’re eating your favourite home-cooked meal just without the fuss. They host several events throughout the year and live music every weekend. The whole venue is also completely dog-friendly - there's literally no better reason to visit.

In the summertime, you can enjoy a beer in the sun with extraordinary canalside views, but not to worry... over winter they’ll be opening their Pergola, a stunning winter terrace, so you can enjoy dinner with a view all year round.

Their new Festive Food & Drinks menu will launch from the 20th November, just in time for the Christmas period.
